behind the scenes
Blending flavours from all around into uniquely curated dishes only found here at Okra!
Established in 2017, Okra by swg is an extension of SWG, an event planning organisation. Okra envisions the formulation of an eccentric fusion cuisine that appeals to various cultures and likings. In hopes of cultivating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for friends and families, Okra’s speciality ShellOut is one that promotes bonding and a hearty sense of togetherness. As massive fans of seafood and shellfish, the people at Okra now offer a variety of interesting flavours to choose from when enjoying the seafood platter with your loved ones. Served with our one-of-a-kind ‘Aurora Rice’, also known as ‘Nasi Hujan Panas’, this flavoured butter rice features as one of the restaurant’s staples.
Not forgetting about Okra’s distinctive Starters and Mains, our menu caters to the tastebuds of all – from Ramen Wings to Pulled Beef Burgers to Coconut Chilli Pastas and more! Beyond cultural influences, Okra’s Fusion Cuisine is one that believes in the saying ‘Old is gold’ – revisiting recipes passed on for generations on end, like the Chef’s Recommendation of Grandma’s Laksa Tenggiri with Lobster. This Fusion Paradise makes the perfect new hotspot for explorers of flavours and interesting cuisines!
