I attended a second feast event last Saturday, organised by omy.sg and Lianhe Wanbao, together with omy Blog Club bloggers, Goh Yong Wei and Kiyomi Lim.
This time, we feasted at Shin Yeh Restaurant (欣叶台菜) and Fairmont Hotel Szechuan Court. The previous feast was at Ngee Ann City Crystal Jade Palace (义安城翡翠皇宫) and Swissotel Merchant Court.
The event is a special collaboration with eight well-known restaurants, together with veterian food critic Ah Lun (黄卓伦), tasked with bringing a group of readers on an exclusive festive gourmet food trail for four consecutive Saturdays.
We visited Shin Yeh Restaurant first for a Chinese New Year meal and Szechuan Court next for a Christmas meal. To find out more about the event, you can check out omy.sg’s event report.
