ANTE's Pork Rendang Nasi Kerabu
RM 23.90+ 

To embrace our local Malaysian roots, this year, ANTE brings you their very own recipe of Nasi Kerabu with their special Pork Rendang tapping on the local tastebuds. They had specially created this dish in conjunction with the coming Merdeka celebration for the month of August 2018.

 Pork-licious Rendang  

ANTE's Pork Rendang is cooked through using traditional methods and then paired with other freshly made ingredients such as house-pickled acar, wok slow-cooked sambal, salted egg, toasted kerisik, traditional keropok ikan, four-angled bean, long bean, bean sprouts and finally topping with some bunga kantan to enhance the flavour.

Lovely Blue Pea Flower Infused Kerabu Rice 

The Pork Rendang was slow cooked for 5 hours whereby the chefs select only the best-imported pork shoulder cuts to be used in their own take of a traditional rendang. The ingredients are then arranged around ANTE's Blue Pea Flower infused rice and garnished with Bunga Kantan, ultimately forming the dish that is beloved by many – Nasi Kerabu.

Blue Pea Flower infused fragrant rice features handpicked butterfly pea flowers from one of our staffs’ grandparents’ garden. The flowers are then dried before being used as a natural colouring for the rice, cooked with a little bit of fresh coconut cream to ensure it is extra fragrant.

The house-pickled acar is made from hand-picked cucumbers, carrots, red chillies and pineapples are washed, sliced and then pickled with a mixture of Japanese white vinegar, rice wine vinegar and sugar overnight.

Their wok-slow cooked anchovies sambal sauce is made from scratch using dried chillies, anchovies, shallots, galangal and onions. Slow stirred over a traditional wok to ensure the flavours are done right.

For those who cannot get enough, add-ons to selected components of the dish will be made available at the following pricing:

💓An additional serving of Pork Rendang • RM12.90 
 💓 Extra bowl of Blue Pea Flower rice with condiments • RM5.90
