Grand Feast Sorceress

A cultural experience that introduces intense flavours and a new perspective

  • Siglap, Singapore

Ruqxana grew up in one of Singapore’s few Bohra families – an Indian-Muslim group known for their gender equality and food migration from Yemen and East Africa into the cities of Pakistan and India. To our table she brings experience in event management, running a cake decorating business and teaching others how to retool old family recipes and food service customs.

Experience

Guests fold up onto a comfortable cushion and dine around the thaal platter. It begins by passing the salt to cleanse the palate. Even with 7 courses, there is a no-wastage pledge.

Cuisine

The Bohra believes it auspicious to begin the meal with a sweet dish. A meat starter follows and gives way to another dessert chased with a biriyani or lentil curry then another round of dessert and then the service goes back to the beginning again and again. Continued with dry fruits and betel leaves before the closing lick of salt.

Location

Ruqxana’s home in the neighbourhood of Siglap is warm and inviting. Move past the front gate and you’ll meet her iconic Volkswagen Beetle parked in the driveway. The open front porch is shaded with trees and garden plants, and is an area to get acquainted, dine and relax. The interior is festooned with art and collectables from across Singapore’s cultures.
