The Singapore branch of famous American-Eclectic New York City bakery and restaurant with Southwestern accents has recently opened.
Clinton Street Baking Company, Singapore is comfortable and cosmopolitan. In the morning, it smells like blueberry muffins and fresh ground coffee. Throughout the day, there is the scent of buttermilk fried chicken and vanilla waffles, pancakes and maple butter. All day and night, it sounds like Latin-southern-blue note jazz with a New York vibe that you can feel the second you walk in.
When they began, Neil and Dede were a small wholesale baking company with a storefront and a few loyal neighborhood customers who lingered over coffee and muffins and tapped out on their laptop keys (before smartphones were born).
These days, most folks know Neil’s pancakes are voted best in the city, but it’s his savory roots that ground the menu and make them proud. People call it “comfort food,” but what they are dishing out is American Classics made with the highest quality ingredients, locally sourced -- whenever possible -- with lots of love (and butter).

Over the years, the restaurants have received accolades from the Asian Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. It has hosted distinguished guests from past Presidents to overseas dignitaries. The most recent VIP was Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of the Kingdom of Thailand.
Chef and owner, Bob Seah, is 75 years and a serial restaurateur. He is still cooking and establishing new restaurants at this age, and he makes it a point to go to the market every morning to get the freshest ingredients for the restaurants. This is the true meaning of active ageing!
A pioneer in the Peranakan food community, Bob has created many Peranakan-inspired dishes such as Selar Sambal Fish stuffed with Rempah, Nonya Crayfish, Assam Prawns and Long Beans Sambal. He also introduced the concept of serving home-cooked Nonya food in claypots 30 years ago!
Proudly conceptualised by Chef and Owner, Bob Seah - a fourth generation Baba who had watched his Nonya mother cook, and his daughter Bee Leng, – the menu at House of Peranakan Petit includes traditional Nonya dishes such as Ayam Buah Keluak, Nonya Chap Chye, Garam Assam Fish and Itek Sioh. In addition to that, Bob has created several Peranakan-inspired dishes such as Scallop Lemak, Crayfish Nonya Mee, Bob’s Pork Bun and Curry Crayfish.
Are you a fan of the reality TV show MasterChef?
