Battle of the Ducks

From The humble roast duck has been a staple in the menu of most local Chinese restaurants. But it takes an overseas brand and a European-bred pedigree to get tongues wagging. So it is Four Seasons Chinese Restaurant versus London Fat Duck. Just to clarify, Four Seasons has nothing to do with the hotel,Continue reading “Battle of the Ducks”

4FINGERS Crispy Chicken in ION Orchard
