The Anam Resort has recruited a half-dozen mothers of its staff to serve up an authentic slice of Vietnamese culture every Wednesday and Sunday evening.
Drawing on centuries-old recipes handed down the generations, the mother cooks serve up timeless Vietnamese classics, as if they were cooking for their own families. The dishes include bò nướng lá lốt (grilled beef in betel leaf), bún bò Huế (Hue-style beef noodle soup) and bánh xèo (crispy Vietnamese pancake), and are complemented by plenty of fresh, zesty salads and other treats.
Mama’s Cooking serves as a complement to the resort’s daily Vietnamese fare, differing by degrees of authenticity. Most Asian resorts that feature local items do make concessions to the foreign palate. Mama’s Cooking does not.
The launch of Mama’s Cooking coincides with the opening of the resort’s Indochine Grill that specialises in European fine dining with a strong focus on classical French cuisine. The Indochine Grill also offers a world-class wine selection. A pianist on a baby grand piano who performs a selection of traditional pop and jazz tunes nightly.
