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
