Gourmet Food Trail with Ah Lun (阿伦笑吃人间 周末趴趴吃) – Part 3 of 5: Long Beach King (长堤海霸王海鲜酒楼) and Marina Mandarin Peach Blossoms (滨华酒店 鸿桃轩)
In a special collaboration with ten well-known restaurants, omy.sg and Lianhe Wanbao, together with veterian food critic Ah Lun (黄卓伦) will be bringing a group of readers on an exclusive gourmet food trail for five consecutive Saturdays.
Each week, a group of 80+ readers will visit two restaurants together with Ah Lun to sample their signature dishes as well as specially created dishes, not available on the restaurants’ menu.
Other than eating, participants will also have the rare opportunities to meet with the restaurants’ chef who will be answering questions and even sharing a few cooking tips on the spot.
Here’s the menu for the first stop:
Surprise Dishes: Cuttlefish with fried Kang Kong, Fried Hor Fun with Seafood
I particularly like their award-wining chicken wing, pork ribs and Mao Shang Wang (猫山王) durian dessert.
The fried, crispy Kang Kong vegetable and fried, crispy Hor Fun were both delightful surprises. This style of cooking is not available in the regular menu, but are available upon request when ordering. Next time you head down to a Long Beach restaurant, do try ordering them. 🙂
Moving on to Marina Mandarin, here’s the menu for the day from their Peach Blossoms Restaurant:
Surprise Dishes: Dang Gui Chicken, Chilled Mango Sago & Pomelo with Lime Sherbet
The dishes I enjoyed here were the two surprise dishes. The other items were more ordinary, with lavish ingredient.
Registration for the food trail is priced at $75 per pax or $58 per pax if you register in a group of 2 to 3 pax. All the slots for the remaining sessions have been fully booked. Nonetheless, you can stay tuned to omy.sg’s Ah Lun’s food column for more reports and photos of the events.
