Dragonboat Festival, also know as the Duan Wu Festival 端午节 is just around the corner. Other than the usual rice dumpling that you can get to eat anytime of the year, here are some interesting rice dumplings that you can only get during this festive period.
Make me Feel Like I’m the ONIGIRI in the World
Commemorate the traditional Duan Wu Festival (端午节) with mouthwatering rice dumplings from tcc – the connoisseur concerto. Available for the month of May, delight in a playful collection of rice dumpling, including a new flavour inspired by one of Singapore’s most popular local favourite.
In the shape of an onigiri, tcc is delighted to introduce three tempting dumplings including two back-by-popular demand flavours – Sambal Hotate ($7.90), Spicy Chic ($6.50) and the new Laksa Prawn ($7.90) rice dumpling, inspired by one of the nation quintessential dishes. The Laksa Prawn offers the perfect blend of fresh spices and herbs while not leaving an overpowering taste on the palate.
Trinity Gift Set comprising of all the three flavours is available at $15.00. Customers can also get their choice of dumpling at a discounted rate of $3.80 with any purchase of a main course.
Onigiri is available for dine-in or takeaway at any tcc art boutique cafes from 1 May to 31 May 2017. For promotion updates, visit www.theconnoisseurconcerto.com
