Maybe someone with greater recollective powers can correct me on this. joe chin June 8, 2015 at 8:04 pm - Reply Another house specialty was Soft Mee and Nasi Padang served for lunch. Ken Chan June 11, 2015 at 11:40 pm - Reply Hi Joe, Good to hear from you in this forum. Apart from the Nasi Padang and Soft Mee (somewhat like Braised Lum Meen), Green Fern’s Ox-tail Soup is hugely popular too. Speaking for myself, I still prefer the Ox-tail Soup from Café Rendezvous in Hotel Eastern. What sticks out vividly in my mind was its bustling atmosphere, especially on weekends when the Latin Quarter Cabaret (upstairs) and the adjacent Federal Bowl was packed with revelers. At its prime, Green Fern was the place to see and be seen. There were many familiar faces in the crowd and both the captain and lead server, Sherly Kum were from ABJ Coffee House. Bachelors fueled by raging hormones, were having a field day flirting with Carlsberg and Anchor Beer promoters. I enjoyed many memorable moments in Green Fern when you were crooning sentimental ballads while we were drinking until the cows come home. Andrew Thong, who became a Chef in one of the Benihana Restaurants in London, was also performing there at that time. Those were the days, my friend! joe chin June 30, 2015 at 9:47 pm - Reply Hi Ken, Nice to meet you here. Yes, you are right. Green Fern served very good oxtail soup. The reason why Cafe Rendezvous’s oxtail soup was better is because the chief cook (chef) Mr. Wong left Green Fern for Cafe Rendezvous bringing along his secret recipe for that soup. Those were really fun days as you mentioned about the prime days of Green Fern. Thanks for remembering, my friend.
