To celebrate Christmas with a twist, Baba Chews is offering Mod-Sin dishes for festive takeaways and dine-in. The culinary team at Baba Chews has been creating Christmas delights with a local twist since 2016 and this year is no exception. The team believes that “a festive Mod-Sin menu will tantalise and excite taste buds while introducing local & traditional flavours to more people.”
Festive Takeaways (1 – 25 December 2019)
The Hakka Salt Baked Chicken with Stuffing (S$52, inclusive of 7% GST, 1.5kg) is inspired by a Salt-Baked Chicken stall that originally started in 1962 at Mohamed Sultan Road. Their business last operated along East Coast Road in 1997 and closed its door permanently in 2017. This Mod-Sin version created for Christmas marries the flavours of the Hakka salt-baked chicken with stuffing in the poultry put together in a common western cuisine ensemble. The flavours are delicate with the chicken brined and salted to the right amount of intensity with the fragrance of Chinese wine. The stuffing comprises a vegetable medley made up of king oyster mushrooms, zucchini, pumpkin and almonds. Healthier ingredients used for the stuffing will appeal to an increasingly health-conscious population plus the chicken used in this dish is raised using Japanese farming technology. This dish is ideal to be shared among 6 diners and great for small parties.
From top to bottom: ‘Kopi C’ Flavoured BBQ Pork Spareribs & Hakka SaltBaked Chicken with Stuffing
Another innovative and fun dish is the ‘Kopi C’ Flavoured BBQ Pork Spareribs that presents tender juicy spareribs incorporated with a rich coffee aromatic house-made Kopi C marinate. Served with a ‘Rojak’ slaw and ‘You Tiao’ (dough fritters) crisps, this dish’s appeal is elevated to the next level with its refreshingly local flavours. Pork and coffee lovers can satisfy their cravings with just one bite. (S$60, inclusive of 7$ GST, 1 full slab)
Top: Lobster & Seafood Curry Risotto
Seafood lovers will enjoy the umami-laden Lobster & Seafood Curry Risotto where local curry flavours are intensified with the addition of Chinese sausages instead of the usual suspects of saffron/paprika and chorizo. This is one extravagant dish comprising one whole Boston lobster, Tiger prawns, black mussels, clams, squid and crabmeat and these seafood offerings are cooked with turmeric curry and Arborio rice.
Salmon with Laksa Sauce
An item recently launched on the regular menu, and up-sized for festive takeaway is the Salmon with Laksa Sauce. Baked salmon is served with mashed potatoes and drizzled with house-made laksa sauce. This seemingly un-associated combination leaves such a memorable tantalising impression that you will come back for more. This dish is already a top seller in the restaurant since they launched it beginning this year at Baba Chews. Serving this as a half fillet is a good size for intimate gatherings. (S$83, inclusive of 7% GST, 800g)
Bringing back past favourites have always worked well for Baba Chews so fans can expect the signature Baba’s Beef Rendang (S$123, inclusive of 7% GST. 1.5kg). This year, the dish will be elevated with the use of USDA Prime beef short ribs. Also available are our ever-popular Crackling Pork Belly ‘Panggang’(S$91, inclusive of 7% GST, 2kg) which is BBQ satay-marinated pork belly served with pickled mustard vegetables. Also a festive favourite suitable for family gatherings is the Assam Turkey Breast (S$91, inclusive of 7% GST, 2.2kg) which is turkey breast stewed in house-made rempah paste with hints of tamarind, and coated with creamy curry sauce. Noting that gatherings tend to be smaller and more close-knitted in recent years, most of the festive takeaway items are customised for small parties.

‘Kopi’ & Chocolate Yule Log
No party is complete without sweets so expect festive bakes such as the crowd favourite of Chendol Yule Log (S$65, inclusive of 7% GST, 1kg) and ‘Kopi’ & Chocolate Yule Log (S$68, inclusive of 7% GST, 1kg). For the latter, chocolate and coffee lovers will derive satisfaction from the generous spread of ganache in between moist coffee chocolate cake.
