Wan Hao @ Marriott Hotel

There's always stories behind the food that I post, but today's post has no occasion or reasons to eat at a high class hotel. The only reason is that parents-in-law got some Marriott Dining vouchers and they want to use them before they expire.

If you are wondering how to get the vouchers, transfer money between bank accounts and keep it there and do it again probably next year. Almost all the banks don't appreciate loyalty if you already know.  Marketing dept of the banks are usually loaded and all they care are new customers. That's how you get vouchers. The instrument is a very conservative instrument by the way. Fixed Deposits.

Now back to the food.

Wan Hao @ Marriott Singapore

Five Spice Beef Shank

This appetizer was a little small, but it was a very delicious cold beef appetizer.
Very well marinated and it has been chilled and sliced thinly. It has a slight but not too beefy smell to it. Doesn't it already look tempting?

Wok-fried string beans, roasted pork.

It's a dish that it seems that the FIL and I share a common love for.
The Wan Hao version has roasted pork cut into strips to look similar to the string beans. Generous amount of roast pork too. The roast pork in Wan Hao is already delicious, with an additional stir fry makes it even more fragrant.

A homey dish that my mum also prepares at home since young. Mum's version is bigger chunks of roasted pork but less pieces. Wan Hao's look more elegant. Home cooks, copy the cooking style!

Deep Fried Spare Ribs, Almond Seeds and Orange Sauce.

Pork rib fans and if you love citrus flavours to your food, order this. Spare Ribs here were boneless, making it really easy to eat. Deep frying gave it a nice crunchy outside, but the inside was surprisingly so tender.  The chef probably bashed it before cooking? It does not taste as if it has been tenderised with tenderiser.

Love the sticky caramel like orange sauce over it with almonds.

Claypot Braised Sliced Duck Meat with Sea Cucumber and Chestnuts.

This dish came out smelling so good! Yes, food that has been braising and cooking in claypots till the pot is dark above smells so good! Taste wise, the duck was tender and usual marinates used for sea cucumber. We wished there were more sea cucumber though, that's us being a little greedy.

Braised Sliced Monk Abalone, Ling Zhi Mushrooms and Seasonal Greens.

There were 2 vegetables section in their menu. We ordered this from the Vegetarian section. The wait staff was looking at us saying this is a vegetarian dish, just in case you don't know? (I think she was looking at our dishes of all meat above). We found that amusing and we know she's being helpful.

The two different kinds of mushrooms were nice. A little starchy as expected, but that goes well with the rice.

8 Treasures Hashima

Parents shared that, we call it high class chng tng. It is, isn't it?
They loved it though. We took a sip, ok probably a few sips of it too.

Chilled Lemongrass Jelly served with Lemon Sherbet and Fresh Fruits

We had this the last time and remembered the sourness of the lemon sherbet so we ordered it again. The lemon sherbet that gives you the shiokness.
