A Chinese Banquet at the Four Seasons

The first course of a big Chinese banquet

I've been to so many catered weddings and corporate Chinese New Year banquets lately, but unfortunately many of them were rather dull food-wise, so much that I didn't even want to write them up. They all seemed to blend together, and none of them stuck out, despite being at some rather glitzy venues like the Pan-Pacific, the Hyatt, and the Tower Club. Tonight that all changed. I finally had a really good Chinese banquet: at the Four Seasons in Singapore.

Every dish was really delicate and tasty, be it the cold starters and soup (nice strands of shark's fin and chicken) in the beginning, the poultry and fish in the middle, or the veggies, fried rice, and canteloupe sago dessert at the end. And the service was so attentive (despite being in a big function room) that your drinks got replaced with full glasses without even needing a prompting.

All other venues just paled in comparison. Here's to having more events at the Four Seasons, please!
