We were pleasantly surprised by the food here at the Chinese restaurant of Hong Kong Club – great Peking duck and BBQ roasts along with dimsum dishes. Our friends invited us over for weekend brunch at the Hong Kong club. Country clubs used to be a middle class thing in Singapore while we were growing […]
