The name rendang refers to the traditional Malay spicy meat dish often named caramelized beef curry. Its roots go to Minangkabau culture, and nowadays it is considered a Malay specialty.
Whereas the very Singaporeans may savor palatable dish at weddings and other traditional ceremonies, the best time to taste the dainty for tourists is definitely Hari Raya festival. Its unique taste has already been acknowledged by thousands of gourmets. In particular, in 2011 online poll held by CNN featuring 35,000 participants, the Malay rendang was named number one dish.
