Serai – Malay for lemongrass – is a hardy plant that can grow in harsh environments, full of herbal properties, and ubiquitous in South East Asian cuisine.
It's a unifying ingredient that connects all countries across the region, and adds that extra little kick to make a dish truly authentic. Also, it is the answer to your call for genuine South East Asian, Malaysian, cooking.
Currently being cultivated in Logan Square, the delightful restaurant aims to bring to you the best of traditional regional food, with a focus on Malaysian fare – specialities like Char Koay Teow, Curry Laksa and Hainanese Chicken – at the hands of a passionate chef who lives to enhance his craft.
