    VIDEO: Celeb Chow with Hossan Leong

    Local comedian and entrepreneur Hossan Leong is set to tickle our funnybone in new cabaret revue Dim Sum Dollies - The History of Singapore Part 1. It seemed apt, then, to ask the youthful-looking 45-year-old what dish he’d pick to best represent the history of our local food culture. Over lunch with M last Thursday at his favourite dining haunt, mezza9 restaurant at Grand Hyatt Singapore, Leong shook his head when this reporter suggested the iconic chilli crab. “I don’t think so. If you’re allergic to seafood, how to eat?” he mused. “Rojak would be my choice. It’s a very nice melange of the different sort of tastes we have. “All cultures in Singapore can enjoy rojak. It doesn’t have pork, neither does it have beef. It’s vegetarian, almost like a salad. It’d only be a problem if you are allergic to nuts.” Content:Type=Lifestyle,Keyword:Detail=celeb chow,Keyword:Detail=makan,Keyword:Detail=hossan leong
