Each home-chef has picked 2 to 3 of their specialty dishes and generously shared their treasured recipes with our culinary team for execution.

Shen Tan (@ownselfmakechef)
Shen Tan’s Signature Nasi Lemak
The famous dish is painstakingly cooked by steaming the rice twice over four hours. The resulting aromatic rice is fluffy with a flavour packed lemak taste. Complemented with her smokey coffee sambal, crispy fried chicken, omelette and crispy white bait, this is one dish you don’t want to miss.

Bak Chor Mee Pasta
Reminiscent of local favourite bak chor mee, this pasta dish features al dente fettuccini tossed through a tart piquant sauce of chilli, lard and fish sauce. Tender juicy slices of pork shoulder that have been marinated in 5-spice powder, coffee grounds, sugar and herbs elevate this humble hawker dis

Roast Pork Belly
Addictive alert! A layer of crispy airy crackling atop and juicy, warm and tender meat; Chef Alvin’s ideal roast pork which he couldn’t find anywhere.

Dukkah Coated Lamb Chops with Mango Salsa and Roasted Mustard Garlic Potato
The coat of dukkah spice mix elevated the juicy lamb chops, giving it a robust flavour with a stunning rustic crust while the minty and refreshing mango salsa provides a great balance.

Peppercorn Steak with Creamy Brandy Sauce
Be highly impressed with the 400g Black Angus Ribeye steak crusted with white peppercorn which rest on a bed of creamy brandy sauce. Great to share between 2-3 but absolutely satisfying for a hungry man.

Sea bass Rice with Yuzu and Green Jalapeño
This Nikkei interpretation of Tai Gohan is like traditional Japan embracing the spice of
South America. The dressing of olive oil, yuzu juice and green jalapeño chillies, mixed into the rice just before serving gives a kick you’ll love.

Pastéis of chicken, cream cheese and green olives
Pastéis are a delicacy offered by Nikkei families at street markets. These pastéis have a luscious filling of chicken, cream cheese and green olives wrapped in gyoza skin and deep-fried to crispy golden perfection.

The dishes are available at Timbre X @ The Arts House, Timbre X @ The Substation, Timbre X @ Gillman and Switch by Timbre X.
