SINGAPORE — Imagine going through the famous Singapore Airlines (SIA) support, not a mile large in the sky but at a Singapore-model restaurant in Beijing, replete with waitresses wearing sarong kebaya equivalent to the famous SIA uniform and sneakers, and a menu loaded with hilarious typos and bizarrely named dishes.

This was the sight that greeted Arthur Pang, a 48-yr-previous Malaysian project manager who had dinner by yourself at Borderless on Sunday (17 April) as he stated he was yearning for Singapore foodstuff.

In an job interview with Yahoo Lifestyle Singapore, Pang claimed the cafe is managed by a staff of community Chinese workers. Pang, who has been operating in Beijing for eight many years, mentioned he chose the cafe at Viva Plaza in the Shuangjing space primarily based on a advice of a buddy.

A seem at the Borderless menu reveals that the restaurant supposedly serves Singapore and Southeast Asian fare. Pang, who purchased curry chicken and pineapple fried rice, mentioned that the dishes he experienced had been “not authentic” but “not bad”.

The menu features dishes with bewildering names such as “Singapore Barbegue Pore”, “Lion town toss bread”, “Fried tofu with minced Malay meat”, “Grasp the sand bone”, and “Beef remdamg” (sic).

“I skip Singapore and regional food stuff as I made use of to operate in Singapore for 9 years. 1st matter that caught my eye was an ‘SIA Girl’ waiting tables, in sneakers. So to my amusement, I requested for the menu and behold, a jackpot of funny translations on their menu!” explained Pang.

The indigenous from Sabah claimed he was surprised that his public submit on Facebook about his eating expertise at the cafe has long gone viral. A check out of the publish as of 4pm reveals that it has garnered more than a few thousand shares given that it was posted on Monday morning.

When questioned about his total knowledge, Pang mentioned he strategies to return to the cafe, but with a group of good friends the up coming time.
