The buah keluak seed, often found in Peranakan cooking, comes from the kepayang tree.

I was so excited to try buah keluak after hearing how unique and delicious it

was and it definitely didn't disappoint! It has a very moreish unique nutty aroma and the gravy they cooked it in really accentuated the unique flavour of what they called it as the "Truffle of the East"~๐Ÿค— This was stuffed wih Omipork btw. I am so going to order this if i visit again!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป #bestpicks

I liked how this dish tastes and looks exactly like the non vegan version.

The meat is served inside the buah keluak. Personally I preferred the rendang just cause buah keluak has a very distinct taste (both the veg and non veg versions) If you like the non veg version, youโ€™d like this too :$

this was definitely an acquired taste.. it was slightly tangy and bitter.

really enjoyed the texture of the omnipork and seed filling inside. my boyfriend who normally eats the non-vegan version said that this was almost identical to the ones he's been having all along!
