A new eatery at Frasers Tower serves Nusantara cuisine with a twist. Chef Firdauz Nasir has adapted age-old recipes from his grandmother and mother, adapting them for a health-focused crowd.
Nusantara Singapore adopts a build-your-own bowl concept, allowing hungry diners to put together a hearty meal with a rotating selection of dishes. To assemble, beef, lamb, chicken, fish, or vegetables is first laid over a bed of blue pea-suffused rice; then crowned with crisp keropok and, of course, a dollop of sambal.
Signatures include the ayam masak merah ($7.90), belimbing lamb ($15.90), and beef rendang ($10.90) stewed with coconut milk and butter for a rich, hearty bite. The sayur lodeh ($7.90) sees vegetables swimming in an aromatic pool of coconut milk, topped with serundeng, or sautéed grated coconut.
