  6. Beautiful hotel, delicious looking food. The menu is fantastic. Tamarind glazed crab cakes? Coconut creme brulee? Yes please :)

    Sorry to hear your segment was cancelled...

  7. olivia: What a good choice! Yes, the best dishes was the crab cakes, the rest of the dishes tasted not really good, very plain...

    Well, the cancellation was a really big disappointment especially it was at the last minute before the shooting day, but then I learnt my lesson to be more careful with the entertainment world.

  18. Welcome to my blog, cleffairy :)

    Yeah... it's an expensive restaurant because it's in a 5 stars hotel. The set menu cost about US$ 70. Good thing, that I was invited if not, I also wouldn't dare to step in, hehehe...

    ReplyDelete
  21. pixen: you like bobby chinn? ;)

  22. Hi Selba... I just knew about him bcos of Vietnamese food :-D and the scene he created with Andrea De Cruz, the wife of Pierre Png (famous as Pua Chu Beng..Phua Chu Kang's lil brother.) Other than that i'm game for new ideas from new chefs...

    ReplyDelete
  23. pixen: I think Bobby Chinn becomes famous since he got his show on Discovery travel & living.

    Yeah.. tell you the truth, it didn't really surprisse me when I read the article about the scene he created with Andrea De Cruz. I think what he did is really immature or probably just for the sake of making sensation or publication in the media.

  24. Bobby Chinn!! Wow. Back when he first opened up his restaurant in Hanoi I was working for Fodor's Vietnam and thought I'd do a little write-up to give him some free publicity. He totally blew up on me when I dropped by, screaming and swearing and thumping his chest, and kicked me out! I hope you had a good experience with him; he has a horrible reputation in Vietnam, unfortunately. On my latest trip there, in fact, I accumulated more "Evil Bobby" stories. Once one person shared, everyone else wanted to add something, too.

    Ah, I feel better now. Maybe you shouldn't publish this... :)

  25. sapuche: OMG!!! Well.. if you read the 2nd comment in this post from MyOrangeSweater, you probably can sense something bad had happened between me and him :(
    Yup, he also treated me really badly.
