Everybody orders the buah keluak fried rice here and also dishes that will come with gravy. The Ayam Goreng ($24) provides a good counterbalance to all that sauciness. Galangal, shallots and Folklore’s blend of spices makes for one tasty fried chicken.

Tried this when I was here in late April and had to order it again when I returned with my family. The flavours in this dish, Sambal Juliana with Fried Brinjal ($16), were so bright and happy in my mouth. I can’t describe it any other way! Shallots, shrimp paste, chillies, fresh lime juice & Gula Melaka are all so well blended together to create the wonderful, fragrant gravy. A must order!

Any time I see a dish that uses four angled bean in it, I am drawn irresistibly to order it. Folklore’s 4 Angled Bean Salad ($12) does not disappoint. It is refreshing and a perfect counterpoint to the other dishes which are delicious but much more saucy and rich like the beef cheek rendang or the sambal based dishes. Highly recommend this!

I wasn’t feeling too hungry after a day of snacking so chose to go with the Herb Salad ($12.50) as my main course. It was just what I needed. The crispy peanuts, chopped fresh lime, onions, chilis and dried shrimp in a sweet sauce was appetising. A spoonful of this concoction topped with roasted shredded coconut is then wrapped in heart-shaped leaves.

If you love chocolate, be sure to cut Le Bijoux’s Belgian dark chocolate loaf ($10.50) into thin slices, if you don’t want to tip the scales. Theirs is so moist and chocolatey, you’ll want to eat the whole loaf. So either be a good neighbour and give away some, or be prepared for major temptation! : )

This chicken masala dish ($5.70) was such a treat with its savoury umami masala gravy. Ginger, garlic, onion, tomato and other ingredients all blend so well to create a wonderful flavour that paired equally well with biryani rice, white rice or the pappadums.

I’m not sure why this dish ($12) is called a bikini (!), but its rich & satisfying flavour, combining three ingredients that I like made my tummy happy. While slender, it is filling, so it’s a great dish to share while you sample more choices from the Bites section of the menu.

Craving something sweet after dinner, we popped into KARA Cafe for some froyo. Dark chocolate packed with antioxidants sounded like it’ll do us good 😂 so that’s what we went for. The toppings Station is a little “dangerous” so some self-control is always needed to avoid overloading our froyo! ($3.20 per 100g, with discounts for students). Will have to come back for their strawberry thyme flavour, which was sold out.

Cauliflower steaks are all the rage. Whether you’re vegetarian or just want a healthy starter with bite, this is a great choice. The cauli steak ($12) here comes well grilled and thoughtfully cut into bite sized pieces for easy sharing. The tahini is not as brightly pink tinged as you’d expect of a beetroot tahini. But it is nutty and flavourful nonetheless and studded with beetroot cubes, which give the dish extra texture.

The barramundi is covered in a crisp squid ink batter and well complemented by a pistachio pesto ($28). We had several small plates and 3 other mains, all of which we enjoyed. Try the cauliflower steak ($12) too!
