Four points by Sheraton is celebrating Asia In A Bowl Food festival which offers you 10 different Asian delicacies served in a bowl. This festival is from 19th to 29th April 2018.
Executive Sous Chef Tenzin Nyandak is heading this festival.
Food Prowl team was invited for a food tasting.
Recommended Dishes: BBQ Pork Belly Bowl, Homemade Fresh Chili and coriander Prawns fried rice Bowl, Roast Cantonese Chicken, Spicy Minced Basil with Frsh Thai Bird Eye Chili with Jasmine fried rice.
Spicy Minced Basil with Fresh Thai Bird Eye Chili with Jasmine fried rice: A spicy bowl with stir fried basil, scallions, chili and chicken on Jasmine fried rice. I liked this bowl. Nice flavors and perfect spice level.
Rendang Curry Bowl: Tender chunks of chicken tossed with paste of mixed ground spices, ginger, garlic, turmeric, lemon grass, chili and poured over steamed rice.
Panash Goreng: Chef’ take on Nasi Goreng. Fried rice tossed with Sambal and spicy peanut sauce with chicken satay, prawn crackers and a sunny side up egg. I felt this was bit dry and lacked flavours. Some more spiciness could have helped.
Chiang Mai Curry Noodles: Thai curry flavoured with ginger and turmeric which had lots of chicken pored over steamed noodles and garnished with fried noodles. Those who love Thai curry should definitely try this bowl. Subtle flavor of coconut milk. Curry went very well with noodles.
BBQ Pork Belly Bowl: A Must Try. Thick slices of thoroughly cooked pork belly tossed in BBQ sauce. This preparation had lot of gravy put on rice. Meat was perfectly cooked. Sauce was flavourful and tasted absolutely delicious. You do not want to miss this one.
Miso Ramen Chicken: Boiled chicken chunks and a soft-boiled egg put in a broth made with fermented beans. This was served with egg noodles and garnished with chopped scallions. These soupy noodles tasted just fine.
Homemade Fresh Chili and coriander Prawns fried rice Bowl: My 2ns favourite of the evening. Very spicy yet delicious. This bowl had lots of chilis and some fresh coriander. A thick sauce put on a fried rice with sautéed prawns on it. This bowl looked amazing and tasted even better.
Chirashizushi: Scattered sushi rice topped with slices of fresh fish. It did not have any sauce of flavor. Rice tossed in chili soy or any other mild sauce would have helped this bowl. Fish, however was very fresh and tempting. Though this was served as kind of Nigiri, I ate is as Sashimi.
Roast Cantonese Chicken: My 3rd favourite of the evening. Marinated chicken chunks with soy, honey and cinnamon powder tossed in a sweet and sour sauce with bell peppers. Served with mango flavoured fried rice. Saucy bowl with mango twist.
Lemongrass Pannacotta: This is not on the menu. However, this dessert was served to us just to finish our meal on a sweet note. Outstanding Pannacotta. Consistency was just right. No extra gelatin or sugar. Just the hint of lemon grass. This was just perfect. Do not miss this dessert here.
Service: This is a pre-platted, or should I say pre-bowled preparations served piping hot. Quantity is enough for one.
Do try this fest before it ends.
