It’s getting late, we are hungry and we settle ourselves into the beach restaurant in Siloso Beach on Singapore’s Sentosa Island. Now.. last time I was here (two years ago) we came to this same place on our last night and I had a kind of pizza that I’ve never had before in my life.. wow it was good.
I adored the ultra thin crust, the topping was perfect and whilst my stomach called it quits at one, my taste buds wanted more,…. and more… and more.
If you knew how completely and utterly unexcited I can be at the mention of Pizza for dinner, then yes, it is a shock, this was me saying “wow” to a pizza!
This trip, we already know that we would be coming back here, and not on the last day… so I read the menu and a frown appears… oops, just which of these did I order last time that I liked so much?? I thought I would remember the name, but agh, I don’t.
My Singaporean friend and I go into the kitchen/bar area of the restaurant to have a chat to the chef.
There, we find not one, but several chefs, all friendly and helpful. One in particular tells me with a big smile that if he makes me something I don’t honestly love, he will personally pay for it out of his own pocket.. Wow ! I’m impressed!
My friend and I explain that we are Fanatic Foodies and get chatting about the menu…
Naturally I have my camera in hand as we chat and what happens next is that I get permission to photograph a step-by-step lesson on how our meal is being made.
Do I say No to an opportunity like that? …of course not!
For the following photos to make sense, you need to know that we went back the next day, at a sightly earlier time.
We chatted again to the staff, some of whom had been working the day before and were delighted that we were back so soon and I got a second set of shots of the same process… from a slightly different angle and with more daylight in the background.
I’ll do this in several parts because there are too many photos for one thread…
I have taken the best shots of both nights and mixed them together to give you the best idea of the process.. so don’t freak out if the Chef in the picture keeps inextricably changing size, shape and face. I assure you that you aren’t loosing your mind LOL.
Too many photos for one thread… but never fear… more tomorrow !
