Variety is the Spice of Life: A Celebration of WGS Restaurants
With the World Gourmet Summit gearing up for 2019, we are collaborating and working with wonderful restaurants that offer a variety of cuisine, dishes and cultures. Here are some of the restaurants that WGS is partnering with:
Located on the green jungle hilltops of Labrador Nature Reserve, in a beautifully restored heritage building, diners at Tamarind Hill will immediately feel enveloped by a sense of calm. Diners can choose from over 100 Thai and Burmese creations prepared from the freshest ingredients by a team of Thai chefs, who have each contributed heirloom recipes to create an extensive repertoire of traditional and modern dishes. Pick from a selection of house-infused Gins, signature cocktails, and fine wines from over 11 countries.
Shisen Hanten is the popular name of the restaurant Akasaka Szechwan Restaurant in Japan, started in 1958 by the late Chen Kenmin who is regarded as Japan’s “Father of Szechwan Cuisine.” He passed down his legacy to his eldest son, Chen Kenichi, who himself earned wide acclaim as one of Japan’s most celebrated iron chefs. Nicknamed “The Szechwan Sage,” Chen Kenichi’s signature dishes emphasised the seven basic flavours that give Szechwan food that distinct boldness, namely – sour, pungent, hot, sweet, bitter, aromatic, and salty.
To dine at Punjab Grill is to take an epicurean journey through Indian’s richly diverse Northwest Frontier Province — the undivided Punjab region. From gourmet metropolises like Lahore, Peshwar, Rawalpindi, Kabul, Amritsar, Multan and Patiala, these cities and cultures are the source of inspiration for Punjab Grill, traditional recipes with a dash of panache and modernity thrown in.
