Celebrate Candlenut’s 10th anniversary with award-winning dishes at a discount

Each of its signature dishes goes for just $20


While you can no longer dine in at Candlenut’s beautiful, tropical-chic space in the lush COMO Dempsey enclave, you can bring home some of its signature dishes to enjoy at home. The world’s only one-Michelin-starred Peranakan restaurant has recently released its 'circuit breaker' takeaway menu, that's also tied to the celebration of its 10th anniversary, where you can order a selection of its popular dishes to-go at just $20 each. "As all of us slowly ease into this unfamiliar new way of life, we want to share with you and your family a bit of joy, comfort, and yumminess that lifts the spirit," shares chef-owner Malcolm Lee in an Instagram post.

Candlenut might be billed as a mod-Peranakan establishment, but its food remains rooted in tradition. The Chef’s Mum’s Chicken Curry ($20), for instance, is based on what Malcolm grew up eating, stewed with local Toh Thye San chicken, cubes of potato, and kaffir lime leaves. Bakwan kepiting soup ($20) is another comforting creation, with chicken, crab meatballs and bamboo shoots served in a chicken broth that has been boiled for over four hours to yield a rich, robust flavour.

Other highlights include the Westholme Wagyu Beef Rib Rendang ($20) with fork-tender meat stewed over four hours in a dry curry mix; blue swimmer crab curry ($20) with bright, citrus-like notes from galangal; Aunt Caroline’s Babi Buah Keluak ($20) slow-cooked with free-range Borrowdale pork; and Candlenut’s Buak Keluak Fried Rice ($20) served with a sunny-side-up.

And what’s a Nonya meal without the all-important side of sambal? Get a jar of the stuff ($12.50), made in-house without the use of preservatives to pair with your meal. While you’re at it, throw in an order of the kueh bingkah ($20 for 200g) or that famed kueh salat ($80 for 800g), which requires a two-day advance order. Check out the full takeaway menu on its website, and ring up the restaurant at 8121 0176 to place your orders.
