Peach Blossoms, Marina Mandarin Singapore

Peach Blossoms Trio of Desserts

Here's a Cantonese place on the fifth floor of the Marina Mandarin hotel (6845-1111) with a very modern/chichi twist, as seen in the dessert trio in the photo. We went through a Chinese banquet tonight, some of which was delightfully impressive, including the very light "Deep Fried Crispy Chicken Skin Coated with Prawn Paste," as well as a "Crispy Fried Green Apple Truffle Coated with Salted Egg Yolk" in the dessert trio that surprised me with its eruption of green lava inside.

Yet other things were a bit of a bore, such as the standard fare ee-fu noodles that closed the meal or even the soggy string beans and pork. And while I'm not such a huge fan of big Cantonese banquets that would make me run back here at the next opportunity, the service was so professionally attentive tonight that I would easily recommend it for a small private function.

Maybe he is in the airline industry? A travelling salesman? Or with the circus? :)

Anyway, I don't think it matters what he does as he is adventurous to try different cusines no matter where is he. How many locals actually venture to Little India in search of good food? That is apart from Apolo and Muthu's curry?

There is no point travelling if one is not adventurous to try different things. I'm sure you guys have come across tourists who will only have cuisine from their home country when visiting another country. Kinda defeats the purpose of travelling don't you think?

He is definitely not a steward... Maybe he is international police? hahah

but i strongly agree with you, nothing beats eating what the locals eat when travelling, maybe i should start bring my Fujifilm F31 everywhere i go.

Kind of fall in love with taking photos of food. Shall post my japan food hunt photos one day.
