Everyone's favourite Malaysian / Singaporean popup team, Masak Masak, are taking over the kitchen at Kauz & Kiebitz (Reuterstrasse 47, 12047) on Tuesday 5th March, to make grandma style Hainanese Chicken Rice.
With each popup, the Masak Masak chefs showcase a different dish from regional Malaysian / Singaporean cuisine. Expect no dumbing down of flavours in what is guaranteed to be an authentic trip through the culinary melting pot of south east Asia.
Hainanese Chicken Rice was created by immigrants in Hainan province, southern China, and is the adaptation of a well known Chinese dish wengchang chicken. It's popularity spread through Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand and to Singapore where it became one of the definitive national dishes, and a street-food staple.
Hainanese Chicken Rice - possibly the chickeniest chicken dish one can find. Chicken is slow cooked in a hearty chicken broth and served with rice cooked also in chicken broth, with a chilli dipping of chilli sauce infused with - you guessed it - chicken.
Masak Masak Chefs
The team will be serving up plates of poultry on Tuesday 5th March from 18:00. Normally a vegetarian option is available, but as this particular edition is an unbridled celebration of everyones favourite edible bird, best leave your veggie friends at the bar.
Plus our very own Josh Chong, normally heading up our flat search team, is donning his apron and wielding his chopsticks, as one of the Masak Masak founding members, to take the helm of the gas hob as chief executive of chicken for the evening.
Come join the Expats team, and shovel some chunks of chicken rice into your greedy beaks!
