Sarang@Orchard Central

Sarang is a Korean restaurant on the top floor of Orchard Central.  There are two dining sections, indoor and outdoor.  Outdoor tables have a pretty good view of the central area of Singapore, and at night, you can gaze at the stars, if there is any :)

Being in a Korean restaurant, I, of course, ordered the Ginseng porridge, which is what the Koreans are famous for.  The porridge came in a stone bowl, that is quite special.  Stone can maintain the temperature of the porridge so that it will not cool down so fast.  Unfortunately in Singapore, with the tropical weather, you do hope your porridge to cool down faster, especially in a sunny afternoon :)

The porridge came together with a small plate of plum power.  I wondered why, as I have never seen ginseng porridge with plum powder before.  Anyway, don't think the plate looks very nice?

Back to porridge.  The taste of ginseng is gentle and mild, but you can tell that distinctive Korean Ginseng taste.  The porridge is like the Cantonese style, so it is to my favour.  Yeah, I must say I enjoyed the porridge, although the portion is on the small side.

We also ordered a plate of fried chicken wings.  Usually chicken wings have 3 sections, but the chicken wings here have only two!  The way they fry the chicken wings is also a bit different, neither the KFC with lots of flour style, nor the Chinese way of without any flour style.  They are in-between, with a thin layer of flour.  Outside is crispy, inside is juicy and tender, and it is not salty.  I must say it is quite to my liking.

Total damage of this late after snack is S$32, including one ginseng porridge, one plate of fried chicken wings and that yellow alcohlic drink.  Well, it is a bit on the high side, but still acceptable.  Not too bad.
