Princess Ter­race is set in an un­pre­ten­tious en­vi­ron­ment in the lobby of Copthorne King’s Ho­tel, with min­i­mal place set­tings and a bois­ter­ous am­bi­ence. Here, the chicken curry with sticky yel­low rice is par­tic­u­larly hearty and de­li­cious; the curry is thick and unc­tu­ous, while the chicken falls off the bone. The broth of the Pe­nang as­sam laksa is more wa­tery than Sin­ga­pore­ans are nor­mally used to, but is re­fresh­ing and flavour­ful, with the sour-sweet tang of tamarind and the spicy hit of sam­bal bela­can sat­is­fy­ing the taste buds. The spread of tra­di­tional Pe­nang nonya kueh is wide, and the pas­try chefs show re­straint in terms of the kueh’s sugar con­tent.
