Taiwanese casual eatery, The Salted Plum is proud to unveil a new menu of authentic Taiwanese flavours. Welcoming a selection of favourites and household classics, the menu is all about conjuring fond memories of digging into 小吃 (xiao chi or small eats) at the bustling restaurants or snacking while exploring the night markets in Taiwan, at affordable signature prices of $5, $10, $15 and $20.
“The essence of The Salted Plum has always been about a celebration of Taiwanese flavours that is accessible to people across all walks of life. Since travelling is paused due to the ongoing pandemic, we want to feed our diners with familiar slices of Taiwan that’ll take them back to the bustling restaurants or even someone’s home in Taiwan”, says Shawn Kishore, Founder and Managing Director of FiveTen Holdings.
Under the $5 category, new selections include the Taiwan ‘Xiao Cai’ featuring spice-pickled lotus roots, bamboo shoots and seaweed to line the hungry tummies with a tangy pick-me-up. Braised overnight in The Salted Plum’s signature haus black gravy is the Braised Spicy Duck Wings for succulent and flavour steeped wings.
Latest additions to the $10 section include the Fluffy ‘Cai Po’ Omelette, a fried egg option with salty and savoury morsels of pickled radish enveloped in a slightly runny egg fold that is perfectly crisp on the outside,
as well as XL Fried Chicken – an adaptation of the street food classic, but juicier and thicker with a deep-fried slab of chicken thigh powdered generously in either the plum mix for a distinctively sweet and tangy crunch or the classic salt and pepper mix that has been infused in preserved orange peels for hints of citrusy goodness.
New to the $15 line-up are two dishes intended to introduce more seafood varieties for diners. Coated in light batter then deep-fried till crunchy on the outside, the Crispy Pepper Squid makes for the perfect accompaniment for post-work beer and grub.
On the other spectrum, the Steamed Sea Bass with Taiwan Berries is a hearty plate of steamed fillets in a ginger soy dressing and caper-like manjack berries for idyllic comfort.
Launched alongside the new dishes to complete the quintessential Taiwan dining experience is a pocket menu of Bubble Teas that are all available at $5. Packaged in a handy takeaway bag for easy grab-and-go, diners can sip on the classic Rose Infused Milk Tea with Brown Sugar Pearls, or opt for fruitier and refreshing profiles like the fruit-infused teas, accompanied with flavourful ‘pops’ to beat the heat.
