Recipe from the Chef: Soup Laksa.

June 4, 2018

We are continually working on our menu, to keep it up to date and to cook mostly from the seasonal local products.
But that doesn’t stop us from creating some international dishes.
Like this one – Indonesian Soup Laksa. Soon we will serve it in our restaurant, but today we challenge you to cook it at home.
Ready? Write down the recipe:


8 x shallots
5 x thumb ginger
2 tbsp garlic
5 x lemongrass
2 tsp Sambal Oelek (or any other Chilly sauce)

Purée into a paste in a blender, sweat for about 10 minutes in the big pan with a thick base on medium heat with couple tbs of vegetable oil.


(Crucial tip: always cook in a good mood. Lack of one? Pust good music on, put it loud and chop away!)


Step 2.

2 tbsp ground coriander
2 tbsp ground cumin

Sweat together on low for extra 5 minutes.
