Yes, Daisy's Dream Kitchen has a celebrity connection – you'll see where Dim Sum Dolly Selena Tan gets her looks when her mother, Daisy the chef, comes out of the kitchen to say hello. But what arrives out of the kitchen stand well on their own, transcending the borrowed glitz, a soundtrack of Singaporean oldies, and well-shot #flatlays pinned on the walls.
The menu weaves the lore of the matron nurturing her clan, and how she’s passed the business down to her son, Ray, who's kept the flavours on point. Chunky ngoh hiang ($8) is rolled into balls so you have a maximum surface area of crisped bean curd skin to crunch into. A plate of robust squid ($12), dressed in its own ink, is coloured in flavours of deep caramel and smoke. And though the plates are a tad smaller than its peers, you'll come to understand why after chewing on the pulp of fragrant rempah that thickens a bowl of beef rendang ($12). Daisy’s seriously not cutting corners here – this place is indeed a dream for the palate.
