Throughout the month of March, 2018, Sigi's Bar & Grill at Golden Sands Resort Penang presents the Culinary Creations of Chef Fabio. This is a showcase of the culinary creativity of award-winning Chef Fabio Polidori, the executive chef at Shangri-La Hotel Qingdao. Chef Fabio was on a visit to Golden Sands Resort from 26-28 February. During his brief visit, he imparted a wide range of à la carte selections, including his specialty pizza and tajine creations, which local diners will get to experience throughout the month of March.
