In celebration of Singapore's upcoming national day, Town Restaurant at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore will launch a special dinner promotion from 1 to 11 August 2019. This dining promotion - Satay Soiree by the River, will feature the Singapore heritage brand, Chim’s Satay which is now in its third generation, alongside other local grill favourites. As grilling satays over charcoal flames plays a vital role in bringing out the best of the satays, the culinary team at Town Restaurant was personally trained by two of the three Chim sisters to ensure the quality of it.
Chim's Satay 4.5/5
There are 4 types of Satays - Chicken, Beef, Mutton and Pork, served with House-made buttery peanut sauce. The peanut sauce was really robust and smooth, with chunks of pineapple to loosen up its richness. \As for the satays, I think by far these are one of the best that I ever had. Each skewer was tender and juicy, and the Pork satay was quite exceptional. It can be rather tricky to get the meat to fats ratio right for pork satays, but Chim's Satay has mastered that over the years.
King Prawn 4/5
Mud Crab 4/5
And not just satays, Grilled Seafood are also available. While I was just expecting some Tiger Prawns skewers, what we were offered were King Prawns and Mud Crab. The team had done a great job in grilling the prawns over the charcoal flames. It is easy to over grilled these prawns, but what I had were succulent.
Sambal Sting Ray 3.5/5
Salmon Medallion 4.2/5
Adding on to the hawker flavour of this Satay Soiree is Sambal Sting Ray, individually wrapped with foil to keep it warm and moist till you open it up on your table. What I also appreciate is the addition of Salmon Medallion. Each chunk was fatty and tender. Although it may not be considered as a typical local barbeque ingredient, as a fan of salmon, this is a bonus.
Not to forget Otahwhich was packed with chunks of fish. Not in the picture is Chef Chan's Signature Salted Egg Yolk Lobster. I had horrible renditions of this dish before, in which the lobsters were either too dry or mushy, but this was moist and succulent. The salted egg yolk crust was generous but did not overpower the lobster at all. Do note that this is only available on Friday and Saturday.
