[Media Invitation] Chef Wan Launches His First-Ever A la Carte Concept That Doles Out Authentic Heritage Asian and International Cuisines

Welcome to Chef Wan’s Kitchen. A beloved TV personality known for his effervescent personality, Chef Wan is a culinary stalwart with 35 years of experience under his belt. For this venture, he has dug into his treasure trove of recipes, passed down from his grandmother to mother and auntie and then to him, and curated the best ones. Embark on an epicurean journey and relish the exotic flavours of Peranakan, Moroccan, Javanese and Spanish cuisines with Chef Wan! 

Bibik Neo's Laksa ($15.90)

The Bibik Neo's Laksa is Chef Wan’s favourite childhood dish, cooked by his grandmother on special occasions. Whenever Chef Wan hosts laksa parties for international celebrities, this is his signature go-to. Of a delightful coconutty creaminess, or described as "lemak" in Malay, the piquant gravy is made from a unique blend of spices, grinded fresh prawns and coconut milk.

Cik Aini's Mee Rebus with Prawn Fritters ($15.90)

A beloved dish of Chef Wan, Cik Aini's Mee Rebus with Prawn Fritters is a dish that Chef Wan had served to the royal family of Brunei, and it earned much praise from them. This rendition is Chef Wan's way of paying tribute to his mother. To support her family and bring up all her children, Chef Wan's mother made a living selling mee rebus for 31 years.  This will be the first time Singaporeans will enjoy this unique dish, which is served with premium crunchy and flavourful prawn fritters.  
Prawn Curry with Pineapple ($21.90)

Lawar Salad ($17.90)

Two other dishes that Chef Wan has regaled royalties and his celebrity friends with are Prawn Curry with Pineapple and Lawar Salad. Another cherished recipe by his grandmother, the Prawn Curry with Pineapple is a famous Malaysian-style curry, loved by many Peranakan families in Malacca and Singapore. The pineapple adds a slight sour flavour to the spicy curry. 

A must-have staple in any traditional Balinese feast, the Lawar Salad is made with a potpourri of ingredients, from garlic to red chillies, fried shallots, long beans, limes, palm sugar, desiccated coconut, fresh turmeric, black peppercorns, and many more. Chicken breast, candlenuts and jackfruits are tossed into the mix. This dance of sweet, savoury, spicy and tangy notes is sure to wow all gourmands.

Selangor Beef Rendang ($22.90)

Continue the indulgence with Chef Wan’s Selangor Beef Rendang, which boasts a tender, melt-in-your-mouth texture. Of a smooth consistency, the gravy, enhanced with a blend of aromatic spices, will leave diners wanting more.

Chilled Coconut Custard & Steamed Jackfruit Custard ($5.90)

Churros Cheese Tart ($5.90)
