I was invited for a media tasting recently to check out their March promotion. Here are the dishes that we tried.
We were served tasting portion of 3 different kinds of dim sum- Steamed Pumpkin filled with red bean paste S$5.00 (3pcs) , Steamed Crystal Dumpling with Assorted Capsicum, Minced Pork and XO Chilli Sauce S$6.00 (3pcs) and Steamed Mushroom Bun filled with Wild Mushrooms S$6.00 (3pcs). My favourite is the steamed dumpling filled with the flavourful minced pork in it.
Honey-Glazed Barbeque Pork Loin S$18.00 (per order)
The highly-raved ‘char siew’, which is the crowd pleaser of the night. We even requested for second serving. The pork loin is tender with caramelized crust.
Deep-fried Prawns with Wasabi Mayonnaise S$28.00 (per order)
Soft Shell Crab with Chicken Floss in Curry Flavour S$22.00 (per order)
Instead of the deep fried soft shell crab that we tried, the chef prepared it with chicken
Poached Local Spinach with 3 Types of Egg S$18.00 (per order)
Baked Silver Cod with Spicy Lemongrass Infuse S$28.00 ( per person)
Cod fish lover would love this dish. This is nicely baked cod that you wouldn’t want to miss it.
Ginger Fried Rice with Shrimp and Fish Roe S$24.00 (per order)
Braised 8-head Abalone with Homemade Beancurd in “Tang Jia” Style – S$22.00 (per person)
I couldn’t take my eyes off the dish especially the purple flower that gives a vibrant colour of the palate.This is a chef special and it is advisable to order in advance.
King Prawn Vermicelli served in Coconut Shell – S$28.00 (per person)
Umami flavour broth which is slow-cooked with prawn. There is a sweetness taste in the broth and the coconut flesh absorbs the goodness , which I would suggest you to dig it and try towards the end. This is also chef special and it is advisable to order in advance.
Refreshing Green Apple Jelly with Lime Sorbet S$8.00 (per person)
