What’s for lunch? Trump, Kim summit menu a blend of Western, Asian flavors
Beef ribs and sweet and sour pork: U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will be served a working lunch that combines the flavors of East and West during their historic meeting in Singapore on Tuesday.
A menu released by the White House showed the two leaders will sit down to starters that include prawn cocktail and avocado salad, a Southeast Asian-flavored green mango salad dish with honey lime dressing and fresh octopus, as well as “oiseon”, a Korean dish of stuffed cucumber.
Main courses include beef short rib confit, served with potato dauphinoise and steamed broccoli; sweet and sour crispy pork and fried rice with an “XO” chili sauce as well as a Korean dish called “daegu jorim”, which is a soy braised codfish with radish and Asian vegetables.
For dessert, Trump and Kim and their delegations would have a choice of dark chocolate tartlet ganache, Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream with cherry coulis and tropezienne, a cream-filled pastry.
