Gourmet Food Trail with Ah Lun (阿伦笑吃人间 周末趴趴吃) – Part 4 of 5: Straits Café @ Rendezvous Hotel and Ah Yat Seafood Restaurant at Turf City (马城阿一海鲜)
In a special collaboration with ten well-known restaurants, omy.sg and Lianhe Wanbao, together with veterian food critic Ah Lun (黄卓伦) brought a group of readers on exclusive gourmet food trails for five consecutive Saturdays.
Each week, a group of 80+ readers visited 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 also had the rare opportunities to meet with the restaurants’ chefs, some of them even sharing a few cooking tips on the spot.
Here’s the menu for the first stop:
Surprise Dishes: Signature laksa, Durian cake, Almond jelly with sea coconut

I enjoyed the Marmite mango chicken and their signature, award-winning laksa. The food at Straits Cafe are generally quite simple, hence it’s harder to be particularly fond of any dishes.
Moving on to Ah Yat Seafood Restaurant at Turf City, here’s the menu at the second stop:
Surprise Dishes: Golden coin meat and Salted egg yolk kueh
The two surprise dishes were really memorable. Both items are not available on their regular menu, but I think they will be crowd favourites if introduced. The head chef must have put in a lot of effort to design and craft these two dishes.
I enjoyed all the other dishes as well. Each aesthetically pleasing and rich in flavour. This is definitely one of the best menu I have sampled so far for this food trail.
Kudos to the head chef and the staff at Ah Yat Seafood Restaurant.
