Chef Dickie Offers a taste of Singapore at Sule Shangri-La,Yangon's Café Sule

Yangon, 12 August 2017 - Sule Shangri-La, Yangon's all-day-dining venue, Café Sule, welcomes Chef Ong Tee Zee of Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore for a celebration of Singaporean cuisine from 12 to 18 August 2017. Café Sule's dinner buffet will be filled to the brim with signature dishes from the Lion City.

 
Known as a tiny country with a voracious appetite, Singapore is home to a melting pot of flavours, with influences from Malaysia, China, India and Indonesia. The island's long history dates back centuries to when it was major port in the region, attracting foreign immigrants and traders. Needless to say, all these culturally rich settlers helped shape a diverse culinary scene, leading some food writers to claim that food from Singapore "hails from everywhere, but also nowhere". Its local cuisine is defined by what it has borrowed from other food cultures, assembling it into something uniquely its own.
 
Chef Ong Tee Zee, or Dickie, brings to Yangon some of Singapore's most-loved dishes: Beef Rendang, described as the "king of all curries" with its many layers of spices; Pisang Goreng, hot, crispy fritters with a soft banana centre; Kapitan Chicken, a rich, thick chicken gravy with strong Southeast Asian spices; and Sato Ayam, a rich and fragrant yellow spicy warm chicken soup dish/
 
Chef Dickie's repertoire also includes three dishes on CNN Travel readers' list of the World's 50 Best Foods for 2017 - Hainanese Chicken or Chicken Rice, often called the "national dish" of Singapore; Chilli Crabs and Laksa Curry, a soul-warming noodle soup of delicious coconut and citrus flavours with just the right amount of heat.
 
Chef Dickie is a passionate junior sous chef at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore. He is most comfortable with Malaysia's local and Nyonya cuisines, having spent a good number of his early culinary years in Malaysia before heading to Singapore.
 
Café Sule's Singaporean Food Festival's dinner is priced at only US$32 nett per person. For reservations and further information, please call (95 1) 242 828 extension 6420 or send an email to restaurantreservations.ssyn@shangri-la.com.
