Was Chef Arena VIP worth it?

Overall the ticket was fair value for what you got, the food could have been more per plate if I am brutally honest. We lucked out on the night as they messed up with over booking tickets so we received a round of free drinks (down side was it was Tiger Crystal).

The settings were nicely done, lighting was a bit dim but an aircon room wit ha big stage that had no entertainment seemed a bit of a wasted opportunity.

Later that evening they served mushrooms in the Bak Kut Teh to our friend who is allergic to them, It had been made clear to them at the beginning of the meal when they checked. The manager was very apologetic and gave us almost a bottle of Red wine to apologize, so we definitely got our value out of it.

Thankfully our friend was not medically unwell as a result so I do hope they take better care of such dietary concerns next year!

We will be back again next year for sure!

We ended up in this tent on the hunt for more booze and ended up being one of the last people to leave. The cheese was amazing (turns out I knew the guy selling it, more on that another time)!

We bought a lot of cheese to take home and some to eat on the spot and paired it with some wine to keep us going!

Check out the Mao Shan Wang Durian we ate at the end of this post, it was incredible and I’d definitely eat that again!
