Food For Talk — WED WEB CHAT


FOOD has been a major preoccupation in 2020 as those stuck at home discovered their culinary skills (or not), while restaurants had to pivot and offer take-away or delivery options.

While the rules as far as dining at restaurants may have been eased, it’s still not business as usual as new rules on safe distancing measures and operating hours are in place to help contain the COVID-19 spread.

In this climate, musician Stephen Francis wants to open a new restaurant, Kampong Amin Dim Sum, in the Jalan Besar area. You may well wonder why, but he has his reasons, which he will share on the WED WEB CHAT on 2 September, from 12:45-1:30pm.

Joining him on the panel is Arul Inthirarajah a man whose sense of taste has put him on the twin paths of finance and restaurants. He opened Sushi Airways, a cosy restaurant in the Arab Street area, which is now taking off after the closure.

Dhershini Winodan is one of the founders of Chat Masala, well known for its plan to spice things up with Indian flavours in the Upper East Coast area. She’s since upped stakes and has been venturing into home dining.

Litigator and author Adrian Tan brings a keen sense of taste to any restaurant he frequents. The partner at TSMP Law Corporation offers his thoughts on our tastes as a nation of foodies.

This unusual mix of ingredients should make for a spicy discussion on how COVID-19 has changed the habits of diners and what we can expect as things open up and we head out (hopefully soon) of the clutches of the pandemic.

Do add more spice and flavour to the discussion with your questions.
