hosted by Peranakan Palace
A Singaporean Peranakan Stranded in London.
Here at Peranakan Palace, the aim is to introduce you to the delectable world of Peranakan cuisine. A cuisine uniquely blended Chinese ingredients and cooking techniques with spices used by the Malays to create something delicious.
Peranakan food is typically rich, aromatic and spicy and features ingredients such as coconut milk, galangal, laksa leaves, lemongrass, tamarind, chillies, candlenuts, pandan leaves etc.
Classic Nyonya dishes such as Beef Rendang, Ayam or Babi Pongteh, Itek Sio, Chap Chye, Popiah and many more will be featured regularly in a communal table setting, just like in a typical Peranakan household.
If you've never heard of any of the dishes, then perhaps it's time for you to book yourself into the Peranakan Palace.
Note: Due to the small scale nature of the supperclub and Nyonya cuisine involves the use of shrimp paste, nuts & gluten, unfortunately it will not always be possible to cater to special dietary requirements.
On the menu:
Ngor Hiang (Crispy Five spiced meat rolls)
Chwee Kueh (Steamed rice cake with spicy radish toppings)
Pulut Panggang (BBQ Spicy shrimps in glutinous rice rolls )
Itek Sio (Nyonya slow cooked duck with tamarind and coriander)
Signature Ox Cheek Rendang
Sayur Lodeh (Mixed veggies in piquant coconut milk)
Nasi Ulam (Nyonya Aromatic herbed Rice Salad)
.....plus a few Nyonya kuehs/puddings.
This is a BYOB event.
Expect loads of food and do come hungry...you have been warned.
See you there!
