Check out Casa Bom Vento for a flawless Peranakan meal: #sgfood #sg #Singapore #peranakan #Sg_dining #sgfoodreview
As we discovered over dinner on a relatively quiet Wednesday dinner service, Chee got into the restaurant business when he bought Casa Bom Vento from a group of Eurasian partners in 1995. While business at the Eurasian restaurant suffered during the first two years, it took a turn for the better when the menu evolved to integrate Peranakan cuisine, thanks to Chee’s mother, Mrs Chee. In 2005, Casa Bom Vento moved to Seah Street but closed a year later with the passing of Mrs Chee. After a four-year hiatus, Chee re-launched the restaurant in late 2010 at the original Joo Chiat neighbourhood.
