This was a belated Father's Day celebration. This is a new branch at Park Royal at Kitchener Road Hotel. I was told they just opened on the 15th June 2011. At the moment the place is not very crowded unlike their UOB branch.
The high quality of food matches the nicely done up upmarket restaurant. Prices are of the high end. Small portions are enough for 3-4 persons. They serve Szechuan and Cantonese food.
As we sat down, they serve us with 8 Treasure Tea
$3.80. This big cup of special blend of tea consists of 8 dry ingredients: Chrysanthemums, Jasmine, Lily buds, Chinese Wolfberries, Longan, Rock Sugar, Red Dates, and Mai Dong (Lilyturf Roots). The tea help to reduce cholesterol, aid blood circulation and strengthen the body's immune system.
The service was very attentive as they fill my 8 treasure tea cup with water when it was finished without me asking. Halfway during my meal, they also change plate.
Slice Pig Ear in Chilli Oil $8
The very thinly sliced Pig Ear terrains seats on a bed of crunchy sliced Kai Lan stems. This is a very nice spicy appetizer, only thing it is a bit too oily.
Double-Boiled Shark Cartilage Soup $12
The Double Boiled Shark Cartilage Soup
is served in individual earthen claypot. It is a rich milky soup with soften shark cartilage, crunchy water chestnut with wolfberry. It is high in collagen and good for the complexion.
Combination BBQ Meat $28
We ordered 3 Combination BBQ Meat
of Char Siew, Roast Pork & Duck. It was all nicely done. The roast pork has crispy skin and not too much fat.Mince Meat Long Bean
was not bad but I prefer the Crystal Jade version where the long bean are more deep fried where it is more char and shrink.
Braise Pork Belly serve in Whole Pumpkin $26
The star is the Braised Pork Belly in Whole Pumpkin
. This is the first time I have eaten Dong Po Rou in a Pumpkin. The pork has very little fat and it was very tender. The soft pumpkin eaten together with the pork taste very good with a right balance of sweet and salty.
Fried Pancake with Crispy Floss $6
From the dim sum section we tried the Fried Pancake with Floss
. It stuffing was slightly sweet like Char Siew Pau filling.
Home Made Bean Curd $3-$4
We ended the meal with their famous Home made Beancurd
& Szechuan Pancake with Red Bean
. We order one normal Beancurd and another Beancurd with Wolfberry ($4). The home made beancurd was very silky and smooth. It literally melts in the mouth. The Original beancurd comes with a jug of syrup for you to add according to the taste. While the wolfberry bowl is already sweeten with syrup.
Szechuan Pancake with Red Bean Paste $15
The pancake was not bad & does not have very sweet red bean.
At the moment, there is a 30% discount for UOB card member for ala cart food bill until 31st Aug 2011. We paid $152.20 after the discount for 4 persons. Our most expensive item is the soup that cost $48 for 4 serving. You can opt for the daily soup at $16 which can be shared among 4 people.
It is a nice place for celebration and business lunch. It is just outside CBD and has parking in the hotel.
