Fresh, aromatic and exotic, serai (Malay for lemongrass) is an essential ingredient in South East Asian and Malaysian cooking. Wild Serai is a nostalgic celebration of the very best of Malaysian cooking, with a strong Eurasian, Malay&Nyonya influence

What to expect at Wild's place
My partner and I have attended several supper clubs hosted by Wild Serai and kept coming back for the authentic taste of home (and my Chilli Crab fix). This Chinese New Year, I did not manage to get back to Malaysia and relied on Yolanda & co. for an authentic CNY meal. I was not disappointed and to be honest, the Yee Sang served was better than the ones I had in Malaysia.
I was looking forward to the Malaysian Chilli Supper Club’s Chinese New Year celebration! The food was absolutely amazing. We had Giant Prawn Cracker with small Chicken Curry Puff to get our gastric juices working. Yolanda brought out the first course which is the Prosperity Salad (Lo Hei/Yusheng) served with Sashimi grade Salmon. I was asked to sprinkle more I gredientson top & with Y’s help, sauces were poured & we all stood up to toss the salad to welcome the Year of the Dog! A bit messy but we proceeded to help ourselves & this was the most deliciously well balanced Prosperity Salad I have ever eaten. A large dish of giant Chilli Crabs arrived & was served with Fried Mantou (to soak up the yummilucious sauce). This is finger food with a couple of tools needed. The Cornish Brown Crab is perfect for this dish because the firm sweet flavour crab meat absorbs the sauce. Not too spicy just enhance the crab meat beautifully! Hot steamed rice arrived just in time to absorb more flavoursome sauce. I am not definitely NOT on my low carb diet today! We could smell Curry Leaves & the massive Madagascar King Prawns arrived. Another finger food that only oficianados of King Prawns will appreciate the sucking of The scrumptious juices from the shells! Kang King Belacan - Morning Glory/Water Spinanach with dried shrinks & stir fry in the SE Asian Prawn pasts - totally delicious! More rice needed to accompany the vegetables. Then the Steamed Sea Bass - wow - a huge Sea Bass steamed to perfection Chinese Style! The accompanying sauce was perfect! Do we have room for the Mochi? Yes - the Tuan Yuan with Black Sesame Seeds, Peanuts & Red Bean Paste was perfect! Followed by Chrysanthemum Tea & a large bowl of fruits (Mandarin Orange & Pomelo) decorated with Hong Bao (containing a Pineapple Tart/Salted Egg Cookie). I highly recommend Wild Serai Supper Club as I have now booked to sample the Malaysian Street Food Supper Club on Sunday, 18th March 2018. Meanwhile, back to Tennis, Zumba, Aquafit & my low carb diet!
It's true to the suggest, I was blown away by the amazing lobster laksa bisque. Everything in the meal was perfect, from friendly host to the cozy home atmosphere with the freshest ingredients that brought the Malaysian gastronomic experience to another level. Highly recommended.
