Otak-otak Pasta

(at The Garden Slug, Telok Kurau)

Otak-otak Pasta by The Garden Slug

We made this for those of you who love a fiery tang and robust saltiness to your pasta! Ingredients include authentic premium Muar Otah (imported directly from Muar, Johor); gently tossed with lots of lemongrass, garlic, onion, and chili.

For the uninitiated, โ€˜otak-otakโ€™ or โ€˜otahโ€™ is fish paste that is steamed or grilled in leaf parcels. Its reddish-orange colour is acquired from chili, turmeric, and other sekret spices.

Otak-otak Pasta by The Garden Slug Does this look โ€˜brainyโ€™ to you? ๐Ÿ‘€

The word โ€˜๐’๐’•๐’‚๐’Œโ€™ in Malay and Indonesian means ๐’ƒ๐’“๐’‚๐’Š๐’๐’”, derived from the notion that certain varieties of it resemble brain matter ๐Ÿง  (all the zombies reading this be like ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐ŸงŸโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘€๐ŸงŸโ€โ™‚๏ธ ๐Ÿ‘€)

While we canโ€™t claim that eating this will make you any smarter (or turn you into brain-lusting zombieโ€ฆ), we can almost certainly say itโ€™ll make your day better, especially if youโ€™re a spicy food lover ๐ŸŒถ๐ŸŒถ๐ŸŒถ

๐Ÿ”ฅ Feel free to request more cili padi (birdโ€™s eye chili) if you like! But do know that even though the first mouthful might seem not quite hot enough, the heat builds as you eat. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Mediterranean Seafood Stew

(at The Garden Slug Petite)

Mediterranean Seafood Stew by The Garden Slug Petite

While we may add a Mod-Sin interpretation to some of our dishes, this robust stew is originally a mediterranean concoction.

Youโ€™ll find this cooked with wine, blistered tomatoes, and a dash of cream to produce a rich gutsiness.

Mediterranean Seafood Stew by The Garden Slug Petite

The stars of the show are, of course: fresh clams, juicy shrimp, white fish, capsicum, and sweet onions. Donโ€™t be fooled by the bowlโ€™s shape - making it look deceptively small. This is very much a main course stew, not a first-course soup - although, we will neither judge nor stop you if youโ€™d like to have it as such!

Finally, the customary addition of fresh coriander for that final flourish.

Pairing it with dense, toasted Brioche is what makes this a complete, absolutely filling dish that is sure to last you for a few good hours.
