You can never go wrong with Tom Yum Seafood Soup or Green Curry, and GREAThai does both perfectly. Getting the power combination of these two dishes is a sure way to win the hearts of your guests! There’s clear and red tom yum but we recommend getting the clear soup as you can taste the spices more, and it has an added zesty kick. Add in an array of other dishes like their Steamed Fish With Hot Lemon Sauce or Basil Chicken/Beef for a hearty meal your guests can enjoy ?

GREAThai’s appetisers are not to be missed too! Their Thai Fish Cake, Deep-Fried Chicken Wings and Homemade Spring Rolls will perfectly complement your meal. They’ll also make the perfect bite-sized snacks for those guests who are probably too full from the other houses they visit ?

Perhaps it’s time to wow your guests with some delightful Javanese eats ☺️

Their signature dish is Gulai Kepala Ikan, which is a little twist to your usual fish head curry as they use fresh milk instead of coconut milk. So that gives it a more milky taste which isn’t too overwhelming and the taste of the fish pairs well with it too. This is definitely one dish you can serve at the table for your guests to enjoy!

Don’t miss out on their Rendang Jawa Timur which is rich and full of flavour. Their Sate Ayam is a hot favourite too – the meat is grilled using a marinade of soy sauce and sugar and then topped with their special peanut sauce which makes it irresistible.

Bet you’ve never thought of ordering Maki-san for your guests during Hari Raya. But we’re here to tell you why you should! A little sushi for your Raya open house will certainly surprise some of your guests but we’re pretty sure once they start feasting on Maki-san’s delectable rolls, they’ll be thoroughly satisfied.

But of course, if you still want a tinge of the traditional Raya cuisine in your maki rolls, say hello to Maki-san’s A-Yum Rendang (because what is Raya without rendang right?) Filled with Rendang Chicken, peanut anchovies, cucumber, coconut flakes and sambal, every bite into this roll packs a punch and maybe you’ll even forget that you’re eating sushi ?

Add in some of their crunchy and flavourful tempura items on the side and your guests will be happily munching them away ?

9. Uncle Penyet
We’re not sure about you but a good plate of ayam penyet is always comfort food to us. And comfort food does just the trick for a good and satisfying meal especially if you want to win the hearts of your guests. Uncle Penyet’s signature Ayam Penyet is so tastefully crunchy and scrumptious. It comes with sambal belachan chilli and fried tofu on the side and topped with crunchy bits and curry gravy, which makes it even more enticing. We’re pretty sure your guests will be enjoying every bite of it!

There’s also a variety of other “penyet” dishes available such as bebek (duck), bakso (beef balls), kerapu (grouper) and prawns. But in case smashed meat isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, you should totally get their signature Ayam Panggang (grilled chicken) which is slathered with a generous serving of their black sauce. The sauce is sweet and has a slightly charred taste to it and it pairs really well with the chicken ?

But if you can't wait till Raya to get your ayam penyet fix, get their Ramadan specials now (till 14 June!) and choose between two sets which let you taste the best of what the eatery has to offer. Their Set A ($45.90) comes with 2 sets of Ayam Panggang, 2 sets of Ayam Penyet, 6 pieces of Crispy Golden Udang (prawn) plus cheeseballs and keropok. If you need drinks to accompany your meal, get their Set B ($54.90) which also includes 6 cans of coke. Sounds like the best plan for a pre-Raya gathering?
