This is what Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un had for their lavish six-course lunch

They went to Singapore to discuss nuclear disarmament, but they also found time for a six-course lunch.

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un sat across the dining table as well as the negotiating table at a luxury hotel on Sentosa Island.

Foodies were intrigued by what the US president and North Korean leaders dined on during their historic summit.

The answer was… quite a lot.

Along with their respective delegations, Mr Trump and Mr Kim enjoyed a six-course working lunch.

Appropriately, the menu at the Capella Hotel was a classic blend of East and West.

At the beginning of the lunch, the US president told reporters: “Get a good picture everybody so we look nice and handsome and thin. Perfect.”


For starters, the delegations were served prawn cocktail and avocado salad, as well as green mango kerabu, a Malaysian rice dish, with honey lime dressing and fresh octopus, followed by a Korean stuffed cucumber.

The main course was made up up of beef short rib confit and dauphinois potatoes and steamed broccolini, with a red wine sauce.

Another main course was sweet and sour crispy pork.

The menu was released by the White House and included three deserts – dark chocolate tartlet ganache, Häagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream with cherry coulis, and Tropezienne, a French pastry.


There was speculation the menu was carefully compiled so Mr Trump could dine on a typical American meal.

It is thought he could have plumped for the prawn cocktail to start, followed by the beef short rib for a main course.

Crucially, this was served with red wine sauce on the side, allowing the famously teetotal president to still choose the dish.

And for dessert, it is expected he would have opted for the Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream.

The two men were joined for lunch by their negotiating teams.

The US delegation included US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and National Security Advisor John Bolton.

On the other side of the table, Mr Kim was joined by the vice chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, Kim Yong-chol, as well as foreign minister Ri Yong-ho and former foreign minister Ri Su-yong.
