Makansutra Makan Session September 2013 - A Review of Red Star Restaurant, Chin Swee Road

At the last Makansutra dinner in August, Tony Lim, one of the Makansutra Makan Session organisers, promised a special treat: a trip down memory lane with classic dishes served at one of Singapore's classic Cantonese restaurants.  Red Star, which welcomed its first guests back in 1974, was founded by the quartet of chefs known as the "Four Heavenly Kings", commonly credited with revolutionising Cantonese cuisine in Singapore.  Today, Red Star is still nominally run by the two surviving Heavenly Kings, Sin Leong and Hooi Kok Wai, both well into their 80s but still in amazing physical shape.
