The first time I tried Chef Shen's Mod-Sin cuisine when she was at the defunct Wok & Barrel and I was impressed by her modern take of Singapore cuisine. Back in 2011, Mod-Sin cuisine is still quite new and Chef Shen has definitely elevated the common local favourites to a whole new level. I am glad that Chef Shen is back again, dishing out her signature dishes at Revolution Coffee at Infinite Studios.
Nasi Lemak Crispy Pork 4.2/5
At Revolution Coffee, Chef Shen is offering 5 different choices of her nasi lemak. There is a choice of Crispy Pork, Fried Chicken, Spice Pork Confit, Beef Rendang and Chicken Rendang. I tried the Nasi Lemak with Crispy Pork ($7.90) which is served with ikan billis, omelette, housemade sambal belachan and coffee sambal on cool cucumber slices. If you have tried Chef Shen's nasi lemak, you would know that the fragrant rice is twice steamed. Unlike others that steamed the rice with coconut milk, she used fresh coconut. It resulted in a soft and fluffy lemak rice with aromatic scent. Not to forget the deep fried slices of pork belly that is marinated in a secret marinade, that was crispy and juicy.
Buah Keluak Pasta 4.2/5
There are 3 pasta dishes on the menu - Bak Chor Mee, Fish Curry and Buah Keluak Pasta which I wanted to try all but I only have one stomach. Hence I have to made the hard choice of choosing her latest creation Buah Keluak Pasta ($19.90). The al dente tagliatelle pasta is tossed in house made buah keluak sauce, minced prawns and minced pork. It is also served with fork tender and juicy twice cooked pork belly (poached and pan seared). This is a delightful take of incorporating Asian flavours into Italian past.
Shendol Delights 4.2/5
Our favorite local dessert, Chendol is given a modern rendition in Chef Shen's Shendol Delights ($10). It comes in the form of a creamy and smooth coconut panna cotta served with gula melaka syrup, chendol and house made red bean ice cream.
I am glad that Chef Shen has decided to be back in the kitchen dishing our her mod-sin cuisine at Revolution Coffee. The permanent location means I can satisfy my craving for her nasi lemak or Asian inspired pasta dishes whenever I missed it.
