It’s always a fiesta at Bar.Yard, and now it’s another destination you can’t miss on a Tuesday night. With South American inspired cocktails and live percussion sessions by Didier Mpondo, it will surely be a memorable evening. And if you still have the energy, DJ Johnny O will be doing what he does best from 9pm onwards. Might as well text your boss you’ll be a little late for tomorrow.
When it comes to Cantonese cuisine, it can’t get more traditional than clay pot dishes. It’s not easy to serve either, as these ingredients have to be slow-cooked for hours to retain their flavour. Stir-fried long eggplant, braised beef with tofu curd sheet, doubled-boiled black grouper Szechuan style—all cooked to perfection, and served in a clay pot. You can get them at The Silk Road right now, until 30 September.
