Shizusan recently brought back the best of Travelling Series showcasing a delectable selection of baos, dim sums, satays, sushi and more as a part of the new festival ‘The Travelling Stars’. We had a chance to experience the festival which features the most loved dishes, inspired from the mythical traveller.
My favourite from the menu has to be the Activated Charcoal & Crab Xiao Long Bao (stuffed with steaming hot pho), Korean Sweet Chilli Chicken Bao and Udang Bulgogi Satay (shrimp in Korean Bulgogi sauce with lemongrass skewers ).
I also tucked into the scrumptious Banh Bao Chay (Vietnamese stuffed steamed buns with wild mushrooms and glass noodles), Filipino Steamer Bao (shredded veggies tossed in sweet soy, sesame and chilli-mayo) Asparagus & Fragrant Rice Baozi (fragrant rice in superior broth with veggies) and Kushikatsu Lotus Root (deep fried Japanese crumbed food on a stick). Each one of these tantalizingly teased my taste-buds
From the desserts, I loved the Golden Pumpkin Custard which was replete with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. The restaurant also offers a set of Asian inspired cocktails to choose from. The festival with its vibrance and lip-smacking selections brings to the fore global renditions of classical Asian delicacies and is one which is sure to convert anyone into an Asian food lover. And this is its biggest victory…
