In case you do not already know, Chef Metin Isci from the luxurious Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum (which overlooks Paradise Bay) is serving up authentic Turkish Delicacies at the newly-refreshed Melt Cafe at the Mandarin Oriental, Singapore. What's more important to note however is that there is only less than a week left to savour the exquisite Turkish flavours at Melt Cafe since this is only running until 12 March 2016.
Like most of the other culinary features that happen from time to time (like that amazing one from Bumbu Bali!) at Melt Cafe, the Turkish Delicacies do not completely replace Melt Cafe's regular offerings. You will find specific spaces in each section that are dedicated to the feature instead. For instance, you will definitely notice the extensive lokum (or Turkish Delight) spread at the dessert counter as you walk in the restaurant.
There's plenty of Turkish delicacies to choose from and if you would like to learn more about the featured dishes, look out for Chef Metin who is probably in the kitchen or the knowledgable restaurant manager, Anshul. The Stuffed Chicken Legs (photographed on the top left) is a crowd favourite and one that should not be missed.
There is also an outdoor station where a variety of kebabs and grilled meats are served.
If like me, you do not know much about Turkish cuisine and would like to take this opportunity to learn more about it, you should definitely not miss out on the spread at Melt Cafe.

The Conrad Tokyo is one of the most highly-rated hotels in the city of Tokyo - some of the rooms and suites overlooks the iconic Tokyo Bay and the Hamarikyu Gardens which is just stunning in the fall. When I visited Tokyo last month, I stayed in one of the Bay View Rooms with Executive Lounge access (from my Hilton HHonors Diamond Status) for two nights and during the stay, I took the opportunity to check out Kazahana (a Japanese restaurant within the Conrad Tokyo) which was easily one of the best meals that I have ever had in Tokyo.
Journey through Singapore's culinary heritage through a five-tier afternoon tea set at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore's Colony.

Colony launches The Journey - a brand new afternoon tea experience that is available from Mondays to Saturdays from 3:30PM to 5:30PM.

I wrote about the new Chinese New Year (2017) dishes at the Conrad Centennial Singapore's Golden Peony restaurant and I actually got to sample some of these delicious creations last week during a media tasting of the menu. These dishes will be made available at Golden Peony between 10 January 2017 and 11 February 2017 - advance reservations are highly recommended to avoid disappointments.
