YeeHaw! An all American Feast made for you at Corniche

With so much flavor packed in all their daily food offerings, even side street hawker cooking taste like restaurant prepared treats, though sadly I have yet the chance to set foot in Singapore ( I promise to visit there soon, if time permits ), I am so glad Dusit Thani is bringing the flare and best of Singapore's dishes to Manila.

Leading the team of Singaporean guest chefs is Chef Paul Then SehChon whose wealth of delectable experience and accolades span over 30 years. His desire is to keep the local delights nostalgic of the good old days and save the losing heritage of true Singaporean Hawker cooking.
The buffet spread features Nonya Laksa, Singaporean Chili Crab, Bak KutTeh, Nasi Lemak, Nasi Goreng, Char KwayTeow, amongst other Singaporean favorites.
