This is a preview of what will be served.  Chef Malcolm became the very first Singaporean recipient of the Miele Guide Scholarship.  Now chef-owner of The Candlenut Kitchen, he seeks to serve authentic Peranakan cuisine with a twist-using refined and modern techniques such as Sous Vide cooking.  As a small and young restaurant, Candlenut Kitchen has gained much coverage in the local media, and received publicity overseas. Chef Malcolm’s dishes reflect his simple yet refined cooking style with focus on flavour and execution.48 Hour Short Rib Buah Keluak: Sambal (chili radish) haricot vert, shimp sayur lodeeh (coconut curry vegetable stew), buah keluak, white coconut curry and sayur lodeh curry rice
