"You can now feast like Malay royalty at a new buffet restaurant housed near a former palace.
Located at the Gedung Kuning (Yellow Mansion) in the Kampong Glam cultural district, Permata’s executive chef Firdauz Nasir whips up more than 60 dishes comprising some of the region’s most complex recipes that have been elevated with rare, unexpected ingredients native to the Nusantara, an old term referring to the Indonesian archipelago or “Malay world” encompassing Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia, and even Southern Thailand.
The Wagyu Beef Rendang, for example, is a rich, toasty curry cooked for long hours using over 20 different ingredients. It’s also one of the most difficult dishes to make, Firdaus told Coconuts at a recent media preview. He also finds inspiration for his dishes from his mother and grandmother, he said.
Permata, which means jewels in Malay, is owned by the same company running the Amazing Chambers escape gaming attraction located upstairs. Plans to open the buffet restaurant on the ground floor were shelved due to the coronavirus pandemic until the authorities gave the green light to operate buffets some weeks ago with safety measures in place."
"Kampong Glam welcomes a new buffet concept that spotlights Nusantara cuisine. Housed in the majestic palace of Gedung Kuning (right next to the Malay Heritage Centre), Permata takes up the first floor with an amazing spread of 60 Malay and Indonesian dishes. Get ready for a feast fit for a king!
We started our meal (lunch from $42; dinner from $52) with ulam, a traditional Malay salad featuring a medley of cucumber, pomegranate, coriander and pennyworth. Feel free to zhush it up with prawns, mussels and langoustine from the seafood on ice station. Next up, a plate of blue rice with ayam binjai (boneless chicken leg in a sweet and spicy gravy), wagyu beef rendang and belimbing lamb. All the protein picks marry well together in taste, almost reminiscent of nasi kandar. Other noteworthy dishes include tempoyak ikan patin (catfish cooked in durian gravy) and roti jala (a savoury crepe) with chicken curry. Spice things up with six different sambal varieties, including sambal hijau and belachan."
