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!

Did You Know?

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!

Rendang is not “crispy”
