Festive Ala Carte Buffet @ IndoCafe The White House

It is just days to Christmas and I reckon it was timely for a gathering with some friends whom I’d gotten to know over Facebook, a good time to get together again since meet ups as such are far and few in between given everyone’s busy schedules. It is also good to be able to put a face to a name, transcending from online acquaintances to friends in real life. There have been quite a number of Christmas promotions running in our local restaurants and F&B establishments in hotels so we are literally spoilt for choices. Despite coming back from Melaka just a couple of days back, I still crave for good Peranakan food. A quick buzz over one of the Facebook groups I am active in and it didn’t take long for like-minded foodies to respond to the calling. We chose ‘The House of Indocafe’ as none of us have been here before. We thought it would be a good chance to try out their “Festive Ala Carte Buffet” menu which is currently running at their “White House” restaurant located just along the fringe of the Orchard Road shopping belt. It was a choice we grew to regret. Read on to find out why…

Pulled Beef Rendang Pasta

Lots of rendang cooking this week from my fellow foodie friends! Well, rendang has always been a staple for Hari Raya celebrations. A lovely dish that can be well prepared in advance, a gigantic pot of spicy stewed beef that seemingly impossible to finish. But the truth is, the taste develops and matures over the next 2-3 days or so while the beef continues to soften from the periodic reheating making it even more delicious! Traditionally enjoyed with ketupat or nasi impit, it can get a bit monotonous from eating the same thing over and over again. Why not surprise yourself and enthrall your friends and family who are visiting with a twist to this quintessential raya dish and serve it over pasta? That should earn you some “wows” for sure!
