Thanks to the magic that is Twitter, we’re getting a glimpse of what was on the menu. And it appears to be a delightful Western-Asian fusion to accommodate its patrons.
Highlights include mango kerabu, a refreshing salad dish made of fresh unripe mango tossed in a tangy dressing; Yangzhou fried rice (Yeung Chow fried rice), a popular Chinese-style wok fried rice dish which originates from the city of Yangzhou, Jiangsu province in China; Oiseon, a Korean dish of cucumbers stuffed with beef, brown oak mushrooms, and egg white and yolk garnish; Beef short rib confit, beef shot rib slowly cooked in fat or oil; and Daegu Jorim, soy-braised codfish with radish.
The meal was topped off with a selection of desserts including Häagen-Dazs vanilla ice-cream with cherry coulis and Tropezienne, a dessert pastry consisting of a filled brioche, thus ending the #TrumpKimSummit on a sweet note.
Meanwhile, in a press conference held after the #TrumpKimSummit, the US president described his day with Kim Jong Un as “very intense” but also praised the latter, calling him “very talented”.
Trump explained that “real change is indeed possible” and he’s prepared “to start a new history” and “write a new chapter” between the two nations. “The past does not have to define the future,” he said.
