Huhhot, China, 5 August 2014 – This summer, Xin Café at Shangri-La Hotel, Huhhot will host a spectacular Singapore Food Festival from 9 to 23 August 2014. Hotel Executive Chef Jeffrey Sim from Singapore will give guests a variety ofgastronomic experiences with scrumptious authentic Singapore fair to tickle their taste buds. The festival will provide guests – whether they are professional gastronomes or adventurous diners to try out something new and exciting – a worthwhile experience they should not miss.
Closely entwined with its multicultural heritage, Singapore’s local cuisines feature a tantalising spectrum of flavours, creativity and aroma, with a blend of Malay, Chinese, Indonesian, Indian and Western influences. Guests can delight their taste buds with Singapore’s signature dishes prepared by Chef Jeffrey.
Hainanese Chicken Rice, steamed chicken served with rice that oozes with flavour and a fragrance, is an all-time favourite dish amongst Singaporeans. Laksa, rice noodles in spicy coconut curry soup with shrimp, fish cakes, egg and chicken meat, is a cross between Chinese and Malay cuisine. Guests who really love spicy dishes must try the Fish Head Curry and the Chilli Crab that is sure to spice things up a little with its piquant gravy. Bak Kut Teh (soup made with pork ribs and spices) and Char Kuay Teow (a savoury sweet noodle dish), the local’s favourite dishes, are among the top picks well-presented by the chef. They can wash down the satisfying meal with a cup of Teh Tarik (which means “pulled tea”), a creamy and frothy milk tea.
Xin Cafe invites guests to go on this culinary discovery journey, the hotel’s first fantastic food festival in August. For more information or to book a seat, please call the festivalhotline on (86 471) 332 8816.
