From now until the 9th August, Satay Inn at all Sino Hotels will be serving highlights from The Fullerton Hotel Singapore headed by their guest chefs Kelvin Wong and his team.
You can also catch them at the hotels on the following schedule:

The Royal Hotel and Pacific Towers - 24/6/2018 - 27/6/2018
Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel - 28/6/2018 - 1/7/2018

I was there on the 22nd and tried the Tasting Menu ($328 per person) which can also be ordered a la carte.
My favourite was the Kambing soup (lamb soup) which was strong with lots of spices and comforting.
I liked the Otak Otak as it was made with Mackerel and the Crayfish coated in salted egg yolk sauce.

For desserts, I loved the Durian Bubar Terigu which was not too sweet and packed with healthy ingredients.

Here are the dishes that they will be serving.

[National Swedish Day] celebration in Hong Kong

It has been pouring with rain for the past few days and I am so glad the rain stopped for [National Day and Midsummer the longest day of the year in Sweden] as there was a joyous celebration for it in Hong Kong!

It was a great event for families with children with a 3.5-meter tall maypole with folk music live performance.


There was Swedish treats which were delicious especially the Smörgåstårta, "sandwich cake" which is neither a cake or a sandwich but I loved it because the bread was smothered in creamy mayonnaise topped with shrimp.



After filling myself with treats, I hydrated myself with Bluewater (mineral water).

It was fun taking part in the flower crown making workshop where I made a lovely crown with pretty pink carnations.

This event has definitely enlightened me to travel to Sweden so I plan to make a trip there one day.

In love with [Joomak's] Vegetarian Menu

I am always here because of their vegan menu, it is great that they change it regularly.
On this visit, I tried some new items like the snow fungus salad which was light and satisfying while the Vegan Korean chicken was on the fiery side.

There was supposed to be some ice leaves in there but only found one!

The kale pancake is permanently on the menu but it makes sense because it tastes really good.

It is similar to those Chinese bokchang pancakes which are soft with a slight chew loaded with healthy kale and sweet wolfberries.

For drinks, both choices were so damn good especially the black garlic latte with charcoal, it was sweet with a gritty texture.

The yuzu chocolate smoothie which I thought was an odd combination turned out well because it was similar to the pairing of choc n orange which never fails.

Finished with the chia seed pudding which was silky and moreish!

Definitely will be back because on Wednesdays they have a promotion for all you can eat from the Vegetarian menu for $198 until the end of June!

Fried [Hainan Style chicken] at KFC 肯德基

In Hong Kong, KFC has a totally different recipe for the chicken coating so I rarely get KFC unless the flavour is interesting.
The KFC meals comes with waffle fries and not chips as served in UK which is another thing I don't like.

Anyway, the new Fried [Hainan Style chicken] captivated me because I love Scallion Oil.

The set comes with rice and a drink and you can also order two extra Hainan Style chicken wings.
Unfortunately, they gave me the wrong ones because they were spicy and tasted totally different from the star of the show.

As I said, the chicken wings were just spicy.

The star of the show was really tasty and you could taste spring onions in the coating.
The sauce that comes with this is chili and lime which really matches the chicken and gives a slight Thai kick to it.

It was good that it came with rice because I am not fond of Waffle fries.

Overall, the Fried [Hainan Style chicken] was impressive but not impressive because the chicken wings given were the wrong ones.
