Don’t just eat out. Make it a special night with a chef’s dinner. We’ve round up three genuine chef experiences for you to give a go. The first being from Sarsaparilla Club owner-chefs Jeff McInnis and Janine Booth, who have just introduced a new Chef’s Tasting menu at their popular American Dim Sum restaurant.  The tasting menu experience starts with their signature dim sum cart dishes such as the Braised Short Rib Dumpling, Pork Belly Steamed Bun and Drunken Deviled Eggs.
