Lovely grub bridges the gap

Central Station | 13 Jun 2018

The main course may be hard-to-swallow denuclearization, but Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un also had a heady mix of Yangchow fried rice and a dark chocolate tartlet ganache on their plates during the summit.

They had plenty of western, Korean, Chinese and Malay dishes to choose from at the swanky Capella hotel in Singapore.

To start there was prawn cocktail with avocado salad, a Malay "green mango kerabu with honey lime dressing and fresh octopus" and "oiseon" - a Korean stuffed cucumber dish.

With no Big Macs available, for the second course Trump would probably opt for the "beef short rib confit, served with potato dauphinoise and steam broccolini, red wine sauce on the side."

Or he and Kim could have picked the "combination of sweet and sour crispy pork and Yangchow Fried Rice with homemade XO chili sauce."

Kim could turn to "Daegu jorim" - a soy-braised cod fish with vegetables.

As for the Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream with cherry coulis, Trump probably gave himself two scoops.
