Makati, Philippines -- Dusit Thani Manila welcomes another diverse and delicious blend of culture and cuisine as we join the celebration of the Singaporean National Day.

An equally unique nation with distinct influences, Singapore celebrates its National Day on the 9th of August.

To spearhead the kitchen in preparing authentic Singaporean dishes is the award-winning guest Executive Sous Chef Liew Tian Heong from the world-renowned Chatterbox of Meritus' Mandarin Orchard, home of the top-rated Hainanese Chicken Rice in Singapore. Many food lovers have flocked to Chatterbox in appreciation of Chef Liew's appetizingly posh version of this hawker favorite.

Meritus' Mandarin Orchard takes pride in having Chef Liew leading Chatterbox with his superb kitchen skills and extensive efforts.
