Mamanda at Gedung Kuning: Singapore's Only Fine-Dining Malay Restaurant?
Fancy a "Bendahara"(Chief Minister) serving you beautifully plated heritage Malay dishes in an 1846 setting steeped in history? It's certainly an experience for special occasions.
We have plenty of Indonesian restaurants but Malay fine-dining is apparently much harder to find. The dishes seem similar, so it's easy to confuse the two.
