Kafe Samsa by The Nomads
The Nomads has launched a brand new all-day concept – Kafe Samsa that transforms from a cafe and retail space in the day to a wine bar in the evening along Telok Ayer Street.
Kafe Samsa is named following a local delicacy commonly found in both Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, which focuses on using layered pastry dough stuffed with a variety of sumptuous fillings. In addition to that, Kafe Samsa also retails a range of products such as spices, jam, bread, butter, candy and tea that are made in-house and also sourced from Central Asia that is perfect to have in the pantry for home cooking and dining.
Head Chef Dannel Krishnan has curated five delectable Samsa flavours that are perfect for gatherings, potluck parties and tea time treats to have with your friends and family. Each half-a-dozen box is priced at $40 and comes with a complementary in-house made relish that uses fresh tomatoes and sage.
Lamb Samsa ($8) – An homage to the original Samsa found in Central Asia that uses buttery puff pastry and is stuffed with minced lamb, signature house-blend aromatics and sauteed spiced onions.
Wagyu Beef Samsa ($8) – Succulent minced Australian Wagyu beef marinated with the Nomad's Blend of house spice, and mixed with sweet caramelized onions.
Chicken Samsa ($7) – A central Asian-style chicken pot pie enclaved in butter puff pastry, incorporating native Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan spices.
Mushroom & Lentil Samsa ($7) – A meat-free option using king oyster mushrooms, lentils, onion and in-house made spice blend.
Apple Samsa ($6) – Sweet apple chunks and apple puree tossed in earthy spices of cinnamon and cloves.
Not only does Kafe Samsa offer rich and buttery baked pocket of pastries, they also carry a wide range of artisanal tea blends such as Rooibos, White Ginger Pear, Grand Cru, Toffee Time and Secrets that pairs impeccably well with their Samsas.
In addition to having freshly baked goods, the Nomads also sells a variety of wholesome spices and home-made spreads that makes cooking at home a tad bit more fun. We managed to try Kafe Samsa's house-made spreads such as the Hunter's Butter ($20) – a spread made with rendered animal fat of the day such as duck, lamb or rendered wagyu beef butter) and the The Nomad's crowd favourite Seaweed Butter ($20) that has a pack full of umami flavours.
Lastly, to accompany all these amazing spreads, get a serving of warm Kazakhstan-style Naan ($10) that is baked fresh daily for an optimum Central Asian experience.
Last but not least, Kafe Samsa has also introduced interesting blend of bottled spice to be used at home. Flavours include Adjika Spice ($7) – a red pepper spice that is most suitable for meat marination, and Khmeli Suneli Spice ($7) – Central Asia's version of five-spice originally used in making rustic chicken stews, with an option for seasoning vegetables.
Grab your friends and family and pop by Kafe Samsa for an unique Central Asian experience or check their full list of offerings and simply order these delectable goodies online here to savour them at the comfort of your own home.
