As lovers of food and all epicurean experiences, a major part of any Singaporean’s travels involve eating – and nothing comes closer to this fact than our quick escapades to our closest neighbour across the causeway. Amidst generations of debates over authenticity and superiority in taste between famous foods on both sides of the Strait, we’ve also come to hold these familiar tastes dear to us.
The closure of borders took those weekend visits away from us, and it was from the pandemic that Nan Yang Dao was established. Serving Singaporeans a slew of authentic Malaysian hawker fare, Nan Yang Dao’s homage to the street food culture of Malaysia brings the best of Malaysian-style eateries to us, right here on our shores.
Helmed by Chef Jackson Chu, who brings with him a wealth of culinary experience from five-star restaurants, Nan Yang Dao offers the chef’s renditions of the most popular dishes from all over Malaysia.
His irresistible Penang Fried Kway Teow boasts a mouth-watering aroma of wok hey goodness, tossed in a secret concoction of sauces and homemade sambal then generously topped with prawns, cockles, egg, bean sprouts, and chives.
Other perennial Penang favourites on the menu are his tangy Penang Assam Laksa – with its distinct tamarind fish broth, fermented shrimp paste, and a medley of galangal, turmeric, laksa leaves, lemongrass, and more ingredients – and Penang Prawn Noodle Soup, filled with rich umami flavours.
From a state with robust cultural heritage, the Melaka Cheese Beehoon with Big Prawn features indulgent, creamy milk and cheese gravy, elevated with freshly sourced king prawns, clams, and squid – perfect for the seafood lover.
Highlights at Nan Yang Dao also include the Selayang Big Bowl Curry Mee, brimming with roasted pork, deep-fried wanton, and fresh cockles swimming in an aromatic curry laden with spices and a creamy goodness from coconut milk.
Conveniently nestled within Serangoon Central, find your favourite Malaysian hawker fare and embark on a nostalgic trip down a delicious memory lane at Nan Yang Dao today.
