On its 80th anniversary, Hainan Tan Clan Association organised a Hainanese Food Fest jointly with Singapore Hainan Hwee Kuan. It was held at Tim Palace @ SAFRA Toa Payoh on a weekend afternoon.
Guest-of-Honour was Mr Sam Tan Chin Siong (Minister of State, Prime Minister's Office and Ministry of Manpower; Deputy Government Whip).
All the tickets were fully sold out. Some of my friends who came to know about this culinary event, called to purchase tickets but there was nothing I could do. Priority was given to members of Hainan clans and at an economical rate of S$40 per person.
Hainanese Chef Pung Lu Tin was in charge of the menu. Some of the ingredients had to be imported from Hainan island.
A total of 11 dishes were served and they were pretty delicious. I love the Hainanese Baoluo vermicelli soup, must remember to get the recipe from Chef Pung. :D
Specially selected Hainanese dishes (海南风味精选) for this event :
