Best Local Food and Alcohol Pairings
We often enjoy our local delights with a glass of Teh-O or Sugarcane with lime but how about taking it up one notch and pairing the dishes with some alcohol for a perfect night! Check out these local food and alcohol pairings!
Goreng Pisang and Bourbon
Bananas coated in a starchy batter and deep-fried to crisp perfection – this is one local snack that delights everyone’s palate. Bite into the crunchy brown batter and taste the soft banana underneath it! The caramel and vanilla notes in this whiskey will pair well with the banana.
Har Cheong Gai and Beer
Chicken wings and drumlettes marinated in fermented shrimp paste before being coated in batter and deep-fried. The perfect accompaniment to a pint of ice cold beer! Wash down the greasiness with the carbonated malty goodness.
Siu Yuk and Apple Cider
Roasted pork belly Asian style – the pork belly is marinated with a myriad of Chinese seasonings such as five-spice powder. Pairing siu yuk with a sweet apple cider makes for a combination that is out of this world!
Satay and Chardonnay
Grilled pork on sticks dipped in a spicy peanut sauce, pair satay with a wine that is on the sweeter side so that the sugar helps to cut through the spice and richness.
Cereal Prawns and Gin & Tonic
Buttery flaky cereal goodness envelops the prawns in this dish. Pair this with a light drink so as to not overpower the flavours of the dish. Gin complements the flavour of the prawn in the dish and brings out the flavour of the oats as well.
