Food philosophy

Brainchild of Chef Damian D’Silva, the menu constitutes a nostalgic homage to the food he grew up with as a child of Eurasian-Peranakan parentage. Heirloom dishes reflective of the major racial cuisines of Singapore are made from scratch, without shortcut or compromise, using authentic - largely manual - kitchen methods. The experience is of being a guest at Chef Damian’s family dinners around the table. Bottles of in-house-made sauces and mixes, along with giveaway recipe cards, encourage home cooking, furthering Chef Damian’s ardent advocacy of preserving and propagating Singapore’s culinary heritage.

Folklore Signatures

Folklore’s signature items from the a la carte menu include Sambal Buah Keluak, which is a laborious dish where the pulp of the Buah Keluak nut is extracted by hand one at a time and cooked with sambal and minced pork, Singgang, a long-lost Eurasian dish of wolf herring, de-boned and cooked in a non-spicy paste, Mulligatawny, an Anglo-Indian dish of shredded chicken and spices in a chicken broth with a faint accent of tamarind, Hati Babi Bungkus, a Peranakan dish popular in Malacca and Penang, and Pork Leg with Salted Vegetables which features pork trotters and salted vegetables slowly stewed till meltingly tender, with a hint of heat.

End the meal with a serving of Baked Custard with Gula Melaka, inspired by a Spanish dessert called koka. Chef's creation sees the pudding made with coconut freshly squeezed by hand, and served with Gula Melaka.
