Straits Kitchen at the Grand Hyatt

The implacable Travelling Gourmet at Grand Hyatt…

Story and photos by Dr. Michael Lim The Travelling GourmetTM

MANY varieties of local food can be tasted here in what some misguided persons decry as a high class food court. However, bear in mind that the food quality, food hygiene, and presentation of the dishes like Satay, Ayam Buah Keluak and Indian Garlic Naan, terrific Topshell & Scallop Soup Double Boiled, Roast Duck with sweet plum sauce, Hainanese Chicken Rice with fresh cucumber & tomato, Popiah made a la minute, Carrot Cake and Butter Chicken is much, much better than in your lowly food court. My lament is that the Buah Keluak is now put on a plate instead of being stuffed inside the Buah Keluak shells with minced pork, as it should be in the time honoured Baba-Nyonya fashion. I know, you see…because I am a true-blue Baba.

The desserts like assorted Nyonya Kueh-Mueh, Ice Kachang with Durian Ice Cream & Chendol are also yummy!

Enjoy! {:-)
