Shen Tan Make Mee Great Again

Celebrate Southeast Asia’s rich culinary heritage with this collaboration with Chef Shen Tan. She presents her delightful trio or noodle-themed fusion dishes, infused with Singaporean and Southeast Asian flavours playfully named Make Mee Great Again. Dine on Tuesdays from 6 pm to 9 pm and you get the chance to meet the culinary team behind Ownself Make Chef.

The Bee Tai Mak-velous Ulam Pesto is a rendition of the popular Bee Tai Mak which is known as rice pin noodles or rat noodle for this resemblance to rat tails. Chef Shen adapts the classic Italian paste with chunky Ulam pesto for a multi-texture mouthfeel with every bite. The dish is served with salted egg cured barramundi and prawns and topped with crispy ikan billis, cucumber brunoise, cherry tomatoes and fragrant sambal belachan.

SG Lard (Lao Ban Ee Sambal Noodles

Chef Shen Tan puts her own spin on a Singaporean noodle favourite, the Ban Mee in SG Lard (LAO) Ban Mee Sambal Noodles. Thick handmade egg noodles are served with deliciously caramelised five-spice pork and crispy fried egg, aromatic lard sambal and coriander, fried garlic, spring onions, lardons and ikan billis.

Orh Nee You

The dessert was the highlight for me. Orh-Nee You or Sweet Wu Kok is a sweet and crispy fried yam puff. This dessert features fried taro puffs encased in deep fried bee Hoon with an oozy gula melaka centre that is full of flavours and aroma. It is accompanied with coconut ice cream that has been drizzled with gula melaka butterscotch and topped with shallots.
