Olive Tree Hotel CNY 2018 Food Review

Okay, not that you have the details of the meals, let me show you what we enjoyed during the food review. Basically, we started by enjoying the steamboat dinner - but we were cautioned not to eat too much, because after the steamboat dinner, we progressed to sampling various items from the set menus. We concluded the lovely evening with an activity (making Chinese lantern using angpow wrappers).
