For a taste of Taiwanese delights without having to catch a plane out of Singapore, head to Seasonal Tastes at The Westin Singapore. Available for dinner ($78 per adult) for a limited time from 6 to 10 March and 13 to 17 March, Sous Chef Daniel Chen from W Taipei presents a slew of Taiwanese dishes on the buffet table.
Expect signature favourites like Oyster Vermicelli aka Orh Ah Mee Sua. Its soup was slightly thick and savoury with the flavour of bonito flakes. Just fish around for hidden oysters in the pot. Moohehe.
羹) featured strips of bamboo, spring onions, black mushrooms and slivers of fatty pork for a flavoursome delight.
I was secretly hoping for Taiwanese Mala, Sesame Oil Chicken, Ai Yu, Chong You Bing (especially since Chef Daniel hails from Yilan!), Smelly Bean Curd and Taiwan Draft Beer but I guess these would have to wait until my next trip to Taiwan.
Thank you The Westin Singapore for the invitation.
