Hotel Fort Canning is one of Singapore’s most storied properties, as it was once home to a British military administration site. It is no surprise then that the hotel’s National Day dining exclusive taps on the island’s storied heritage. The four-course menu at The Salon spotlights Singapore’s multi-cultural heritage.
The first two courses are served in a 1950s-style iconic tiffin carrier. Chow down on a trio of appetisers which includes masala chicken drumlets, pan-fried dumplings and tahu goreng, before moving on to Peranakan laksa with lobster, made rich with shrimp-infused stock, served with moreish tender lobster meat, and chunks of fish cakes, tau pok, hardboiled egg and spoonfuls of snipped rice vermicelli.
As a nod to Singapore’s colonial British history, the main course is a herb-seasoned oven baked salmon Wellington, baked in a golden brown puff pastry. End your meal on a sweet note with the classic, rich buttered bread and butter pudding, topped with vanilla ice cream.
