Truly, nothing warms our heart (and tummies) more than local nosh, that’s why we’ll be covering a trio of the most heartwarming, nostalgic dishes in the next three months!
This July, we’re shining the spotlight on one of Singapore’s most iconic dishes: the melt-in-your-mouth, ultra-flavourful and super-shiok Rendang!
The word Rendang comes from the word ‘merandang’, meaning ‘slowly’, reflecting its cooking technique of slow braising!
Rendang ingredients like coconut milk and spice symbolise one’s social class in Minangkabau culture!
The best way to get Rendang’s smoky, robust flavour is to cook it over charcoal or wood fire.
Rendang is not “crispy”
These restaurants do Rendang the traditional way!
This might be the new kid on the block, but don’t be fooled. Their hearty Beef Rendang is braised till fork tender in a secret spice paste, garnished with shallots and desiccated coconut!
Where better to savour this well-loved Beef Rendang than at this national culinary treasure overlooking the civic district?
Shake things up with these unique Rendang renditions!
Need we say more? Their Westholme Wagyu Beef Rendang is infused with fennel, coriander seed, cumin, and black pepper, slow cooked for three hours to get that perfect tenderness.
Get a load of their Rendang Lamb Shank! The Lamb’s been slow-braised in a homemade rendang recipe, served with a hearty helping of lontong rice and grated coconut!
