Makan@Jen Prawn Buffet

Makan@Jen has rolled out a new dining concept, set to appeal to avid prawn lovers! Paired with the daily Makan@Jen buffet, the prawn fiesta will be featuring four different types of prawns that have been specially flown in from around the globe.

The restaurant will be preparing the prawns in an array of culinary techniques and flavours, set to either wow or induce a sense of nostalgia.

The four types of prawns are Thai White Prawns, Indian River Prawns, Norwegian Scampi and Vietnamese Yabbies – with the former two types being similar and thus familiar to the ones we frequently have access to, and the other two foreign cousins resembling crayfish or lobsters.

You will be able to taste the difference in the texture and flavour for each type of prawn. My favourite was the Indian River Prawns because they were huge in size (ie. more meat!!!) and I liked the bouncy texture of the prawn's flesh combined with a succulent seafood sweetness

The prawns will be prepared in a number of ways depending on their texture and flavour, and can either be simmered in a lightly alcoholic broth, stir- fried, steamed, baked and even coated in batter and fried to a golden crisp.

A variety of prawns and crayfish up for your selection!

Makan@Jen will be showcasing a plethora of flavour profiles from across numerous cuisines and cultures such as Cantonese, Vietnamese, Spanish, Portuguese and of course, local Singaporean. The different prawn dishes will be divided across 3 different menus, which will be rotated throughout the promotion period.
