11 Jul, 6.30pm
Location: Mount Pleasant, Thomson
Menu: Telur Pedas with Sayur Tumis Paku, Nasi Madura, Ayam Suwir and Soup Dingin Kelapa Muda
Imagine island hopping across Indonesia, sampling the different flavours of the archipelago. Start the evening with Soup Dingin Kelapa Muda (Young Coconut Soup), an appetiser favoured in Indonesia. Then spice up the evening with Telur Pedas (Boiled eggs cooked in chilli) with Sayur Tumis Paku (Fried Vegetable Fern). Next, we travel to East Java with Nasi Madura, a rice dish mixed with onions, squid and squid ink, and eaten together with the eggs and fried fern in one big plate. Finally, we go to Bali, a place close to my heart. Here I prepare Ayam Suwir (fried chicken in chilli). Come island hop with me with your taste buds.
