After talking about the fuel for thought
, it's time to talk about the food for thought.Summit Luncheon
The first dish on the table was water apple, green papaya, mango, guava & pomengranate salad served with hawthorn berry sauce
. Ok that's a mouthful, both the name and the appetizer. In fact, I couldn't finish the green papaya. The water apple was surprisingly sweet though.
Next up was the Asian Platter
which consisted of Hainanese chicken rice, tandoori fish with yoghurt, and mutton satay. This combination of some of Singapore's favourite local delicacies sure gave the foreign guests a good taste of Singapore. You just have to dirty your fingers eating the satay :P
As for dessert, is that creme brulee? No! It's mango juice with pomelo, strawberries & sago served with coconut ice cream
. Yup, that Hong Kong dessert, but with a twist with the coconut ice cream which was a magical combination in place of coconut milk.Summit Dinner
Dinner started with the appetizer called trio of scallops with pineapple jicama salsa & lime vinaigrette
. Chim names.
I was busy networking so I didn't take a photo of the soup, so we move on to next which is refresher. Refresher in the midst of the dinner! Lime sorbet with sour plum powder
. I don't know what peel was that on the sorbet, but it fitted in well with the mild sour taste. Refreshed.
The main course would be soy-glazed chicken pot roast with apricots, gratin potatoes & bouquetiere of vegetables
. I seriously like the fusion of east and west!
Last but definitely not least, the dessert. Molten chocolate cake with lemongrass ice cream & marinated kumquat
. I thought the event logo on the ice cream was edible, but my mouth told me it wasn't. The molten chocolate cake was really to die for!
And of course, a choice of Lindesman semillon chardonnay or shiraz cabernet for your networking needs. I was at first a little reluctant to drink, until an angmoh asked if I don't drink alcohol. "Seldom," I said. "And tonight is the seldom!" The angmoh asked the waiter to pour into my glass. I was wide awake the whole night.
