Hi everyone, trust you had a great weekend!
This week, the Chef wishes to pay homage to her Malay and Javanese heritage and is introducing the Super Shiok Nasi Ambeng
Though not as colloquial as its popular cousin, the Nasi Padang back in Singapore, Nasi Ambeng is a tour de force in its own right.
Apart from having different cities of origin (while Nasi Padang came from West Sumatra, Nasi Ambeng has its roots in Bawean, an island off the coast of Java), Nasi Ambeng has two distinct dishes that often cannot be missed when it’s served i.e. check of authenticity, so to speak:
Urap (a salad cooked in spiced grated coconut), and
Terung Belado (eggplant cooked in a distinct spiced paste).
Nasi Ambeng is made to be kongsi-ed with friends and family because it’s such a communal meal and with so many side dishes to share, why not, betul tak?
So here’s what goes into Super Shiok’s interpretation of Nasi Ambeng:
Ayam Masak Lemak (chicken in coconut gravy)
Sambal Goreng (tempeh, long beans and beancurd in spicy sauce)
Urap (assorted vegetables with spiced grated coconut)
Terong Belado (eggplant stir-fried in chilli)
Ikan Bilis Kacang (anchovies and peanuts in sweet chilli glaze)
This is recommended as a platter for two ($45).
However, if you have a party of four or more, DM us and we can discuss how we can make it work for you.
