There were 200 guests who turned up at the ‘Right Oil Great Health’ event. Organised by one of the world’s leading sesame oil company, this was the first time this proud heritage brand of over 160 years held its first event in Australia sharing with the public why it is important to use good quality sesame oil.
“There are a lot of brands in the market but for the sake of a healthy family, one must choose wisely as sesame oil of inferior quality contains high stearic acid that will lead to cardiovascular disease,” said Ch’ng.
Meanwhile, invited guest speaker Dr Mecherl Lim elaborated on the antioxidants, vitamin E and Omega that are vital for our youth and health. The night ended with a high note when Melbourne’s popular restaurant, Wonton House Secret Kitchen, handshake on an Memorandum of Understanding pledging to use Ghee Hiang sesame oil in all their kitchens.
The first impression of Secret Kitchen is definitely its serving of high-quality fresh seafood with its impressive choices of live marine products swimming in fish tanks that cover the front of the restaurant. This $700,000 investment was not only intended to impress viewers but to deliver the perfect meal to those who demand exquisite taste.
Upon entering, one will be amazed with its well-thought-of interior design and a lavish selection of good wines. Service with a smile is always on the faces of well-trained staffs who are ever ready to suggest a beautiful range of menu selection offering mainly Cantonese cuisine. Not forgetting Secret Kitchen’s signature yum cha, juicy dumplings and roasted meats that are available during lunch time. Some of the other must-try dishes are Steamed Custard Bun, Roasted Goose and Glutinous Rice in Lotus Leaves.
For those who intend to host prestigious events or parties for their VIPs or love ones, private chambers are available with selections specially crafted to pamper. Lobster in Steamed Egg White or a Snow Crab cooked to perfection together with a prized Chardonnay will be a memorable evening.
