Food Banquet in Singapore

We were invited by our relatives to dine with them in the Silk Restaurant in Singapore Island Country Club. As it was a public holiday in Singapore, the restaurant was fully booked. But our Uncle and Aunt were able to reserve a table for all of us, so we could be treated to a lovely 10 course meal.

Below is the banquet in photos.

Starter:

There were three dishes in the starter – fried tofu cubes, roast pork and fried eggplant slices with pork floss

The pork ribs and sweetcorn soup was particularly flavoursome, having been cooked for over 12 hours prior to serving.

5th dish:

The duck meat from the crispy duck was sliced and diced into cubes and fried with various vegetables. This was then served in a perfectly round slice of lettuce. This seems a popular dish (as is the crispy duck skin pancake), as this was also served in the banquet in Malaysia. Very delicious BTW.

10th dish:

The last dish was a very nice dessert indeed. Red bean paste pancakes – the bean paste was ground very smooth indeed and was not overly sweet.

With great fellowship and catching up with our relatives and the lovely dishes being served, all in all it was a great banquet.
