[SINGAPORE] Taipan Night at TongKang Riverboat Dining


Tongkang was a form of transportation back in the olden days, a light wooden boat which was used to travel from one place to another. Now, you can hardly find this but they do still exist in a more laid back country.

Such beauty has now converted into something more interesting when its being parked in a city. One of a kind, floating bar and restaurant which is very much alive at night.

TongKang Riverboat Dining caters for corporate events, private parties, walk-ins and bookings as well. Just climb aboard and dine on the water. Sounds pretty exotic ain’t it!

I was invited over for the Taipan Night, a night when TongKang Riverboat Dining launches their eight signature cocktails with a taste of old Shanghai, whilst having the music of 1920s Shanghai on the background.

There were variety of food served on the glamorous night with ladies dressed in Cheongsam, (a traditional Chinese wear back in the old days) which blends in complete well with the ambiance on the tongkang.

Alongside with the launch of the cocktails, I was given a chance to mix-like-a-pro. Well, mixing beverages is an art. It was a guided session, furnished a drink on my preference with the available beverages.

    Looks like a pro mixer. Wonder how does the food taste like at the restaurants itself.

    The idea of dining on a tongkang is absolutely fine. Does reminisce on the olden days. Pretty classic. By any chance if you get to try the food at the restaurant?
