Whether you are a Singaporean looking to celebrate your country’s National Day today (August 9) with a comfort that reminds you of your home away from home or you are one of those looking to sample the rare peranakan (a type of the cuisine invented by the Straits Chinese who lived in the trading towns of the Malay Peninsula) recipes, your luck is here.
A strait Chinese restaurant in Bang Na, Café Sambalacha Bangkok by Uncle Pang, joined Singaporeans around the world celebrate their Independence Day with three Peranakan recipes that even non-Singaporeans would love.
Considered one of the endangered recipes, the National Day menu includes Chu Bee Png, a tasty sticky rice dish served in a banana leaf with fried shallots, fried peanuts, and homemade sambal (B50 each. ), and Nyonya chicken and potato curry it’s pretty much equivalent to Thai massaman curry minus Thai herbs and cashews (B100). There is also Nyonya Sago Kelapa, a lightly sweet ruby-colored sago snack served with grated coconut (B50 for 4 pieces). This special menu will be available for two days only, August 9 and 10.
