Godmama is one of the popular dining places in Funan Mall. They are located on the 4th level and specialised in serving Modern Peranakan Food. I have been eyeing their Peranakan Food since Funan had been reopened.

As we did not have a reservation, we were offered a seat in the Alfresco dining section. The menu was well designed and laid out with alluring graphics.


We had the Makan Kakis Set and we found out that the portion was actually big enough for 3 pax. It consists of Small Plates, Mains for sharing, Choice of Dessert and Drink.

Small Plates (Sharing)

Ikan Keropok was served as a starter for sharing. The plate of fish crackers was big for 2 pax. Fish crackers were crispy and comes with a Homemade Belacan Mayo dip.

The pieces of fish Crackers were flavourful and big in size.

Choice of Drink (1 Each)

The cooler gave me a refreshing start for the meal, just that it was a bit on the bitter side.

Pandan Lemongrass Cooler

The Pandan with Gula Melaka was thick with coconut milk. Stir well before drinking.

This is an additional item we ordered out of the Makan Kaki's Menu. The popiah is said to be recreated using Godmama's traditional family recipe. While the typical popiah uses the Popiah Skin, Godmama make use of egg skin crepe filled with hand-cut, stewed and caramelized vegetable fillings, lettuce, minced garlic, crispy garlic, sprouts, fresh prawns and cucumber wrapped within. 

All-Star Egg Skin Popiah - $6.50

The size of the Popiah reminds me of the famous Popiah in Joo Chiat. However, the taste from it was something out of my expectation as the fillings were more on the marshy side without crunchy details. The garlic taste was overpowering overall.


The crispy wings are addictive. The way they cut the mid joint into halves makes it easier to consume. These wings were dusted with a special spice seasoning and served with homemade Belacan mayo similar to what they had for the Ikan Keropok.

Nyonya Fried Wings

A pet peeve was that the meat was a little bit dry.

Mains (Sharing) 


A classic Nyonya mixed vegetables braised in vegetable soup with bean curd skin and mushrooms. The soup is good enough to drench on the rice.

Chap Chye 

This Signature belly of pork is simmered in an aromatic tamarind stew served with Tau Kwa (tofu) and chilli.

Babi Assam

Sotong aka Squid was stirred fried and cooked together with mild spicy and sweet sambal sauce. The texture was chewy and decent.

Nyonya Archar is a staple must-have dish in every Peranakan Household and I thought it will be good. The ones I had from the wet market is better.

Butterfly Blue Pea Rice did have the right fluff but lacked in fragrance.

Choice of Dessert (1 Each)

The Durian Creme Brulee is unavailable and we got to choose other desserts given on the normal menu. We had the Gingerflower & Lychee Sorbet which is Godmama's exclusive by local creamery Apiary. It is topped with roasted peanut crumble, lime jelly and crowned by a piece of dried pineapple.

My favourite dish out of the entire menu! The homemade silken coconut panna cotta was served chilled with Pulut Hitam (black glutinous rice) and desiccated coconut topped with some biscuit crumbles. The riots of texture from this dessert left a good impression on me.

Having tried the desserts, they made me want to come back again for their Durian Creme Brulee which was not available on that day.
