Last weekend, we were invited to the Singapore Island Country Club (SICC) for lunch. We had a huge lunch consisting of the local favorites, mee rebus, chai tao kway, char kway teow, satay, hainan chicken rice, teochew beef noodles.. a lot for a party of five. Even though the restaurant was busy and almost bursting at its seams, the food was mediocre at best.
On the front page of the menu, I spied… Durian! I got so excited that I called the waiter over especially to check if they served fresh durian in the cafe? (really? could it be true?)
“Sorry miss, it’s not fresh durian, actually its durian ice-cream..” he said “Do you want?”
Ahhhhh, of course, it had to be. Upon closer inspection of the menu, I realized that there was a clue on the menu which I hadn’t noticed. I decided not to have any that day, but have a look at the menu and see if you can tell…
