Majestic Restaurant is the award-winning modern Chinese restaurant owned by internationally-renowned chef Yong Bing Ngen. The interior is simple yet tranquil, with holes in the ceiling where one could watch swimmers wading by overhead, if they wish. Service was excellent - attentive and polite; even though this was a Chinese fine-dining restaurant, it was utterly non-pretentious and very comfortable to be at.The Majestic trio platter was magnificent, and beautifully plated. Portions were dainty but very sufficient as appetisers; I did not know which one to start with. The Wasabi Prawns with deep-fried lotus chip. The plump, fresh prawns were luscious and springy, richly-coated with creamy wasabi sauce that lent it a hint of spiciness. The lotus chip was crispy and sweet.Chilli Crab Puff was sweet, crusty and filled with delicious chilli crab paste - a combination of saccharine gravy with hotness; it scored points on taste and texture totally.The Stewed Mee Sua with Oyster and Crab Roe for his mains. The mee sua was the most springy and smoothest I have ever come across - even the ones I'd tried in Taiwan could not top this; each individual strand was lifted easily without, and slid down the palate wonderfully infused with the delectable broth. The plump oysters were fresh - the tank itself is located somewhere near the kitchen - exploding in a burst of deliciousness in the mouth.The stewed Hor Fun with Sliced Fish in Black Bean Sauce for my main. Equally smooth was the hor-fun stripes, almost ready to slide into the throat. The black bean sauce was thick and strong, but not overly salty; the saccharine, flakey fish held a bounce in the texture that indicated its freshness.For full review and more detailed information, please feel free to visit:http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2015/12/lunch-at-majestic-restaurant-majestic.html continue reading

Twas the weekend before Mother's day so we decided to beat the crowds (not to mention the ridiculously priced menus) and celebrate beforehand. A decision was made to try out Majestic Restaurant this year and honestly, my expectations were high as many people have raved about it. The place wasn't big and the interior leaned towards western influences rather than Chinese, with a huge open kitchen and booth seats. We had a corner booth to ourselves which was pretty nice and cosy although I must say that the air conditioning that evening was underwhelming. Wasabi Chips - Things got off to a good start with the wasabi chips - lightly salted, thin and crisp chips with a mild wasabi kick. Pretty addictive.Pan Seared Foie Gras - Served up on a slice of watermelon, the foie gras's crisp, well seared exterior belied a soft quivery composition whose sweetness was complemented by that of the watermelon. One of the best foie gras dishes I've ever eaten in a Chinese restaurant.Double Boiled Sea Treasures with Superior Shark's Fin and Black Truffle - I thought that the soup was deliciously sweet yet light. It definitely helped that there was a plethora of ingredients, from baby abalone to sea cucumber, fish maw, dried scallops, chicken etc. I'm usually not much of a soup person but this was one soup that had me yearning for more. One question though, where is the truffle taste?Deep Fried Brinjal with Pork Floss - I actually dislike brinjal but this dish was surprisingly quite palatable, with a crisp coating of flour and pork floss, very much like tempura. What I didn't quite take to was the oil content though.Scallops Wrapped with Bacon - Looks can be deceiving and the scallops wrapped with bacon was one prime example of that. The scallops were huge and the bacon looked like it had nice charred bits along the edges. Alas, the scallops weren't sweet and had a flour like texture whilst the bacon came across as soft and limp. Seriously seriously disappointing.Salted Egg Yolk Prawn - A seemingly common dish in most Chinese restaurants these days, Majestic's variation came with slices of watermelon and chopped mango. The prawns were quite a size but I couldn't make out any taste or texture of egg yolk. Decent but there are probably loads of restaurants that do this dish better.Zhejiang Spare Ribs - This was another disappointing dish, with the meat coming across as too hard. But at least the zhejiang vinegar was nicely tart with a hint of sweetness. Signature Stewed Mee Sua with Baby Abalone - As much as I would like to understand the hype behind this signature dish, I am afraid I fail to comprehend. For starters, the baby abalone was, well, tiny and the soup base wasn't flavourful enough nor was the Mee Sua (面线) silky enough. Overall, a rather average dish in my humble opinion.Signature Claypot Chicken Rice - Another signature dish from Majestic - the Claypot Chicken Rice. I can't say that I was wowed by it as it was evidently high class chicken rice. Sure, the rice was more fragrant than usual and less oily while the chicken was tender and reasonably plentiful. But seriously?Durian Paste - We opted for the Mao Shan Wang (猫山王) durian paste to end off our meal and whilst rich, it didn't taste any different from eating straight out of the fruit as the gula melaka taste was non existent. Maybe I should have gone for the fried durian ice cream instead. One word. Overrated. Dinner was a case of more misses than hits and wasn't cheap by any yardstick, standing at about $577 for 6 pax ($96/pax). Service was very good but I don't think that justifies the high price tag and less than stellar quality of food. I am pretty sure with $96/pax, I can get seriously better food elsewhere. Also, the choice of music played in the restaurant is pretty weird. Why would you play English pop music in a Chinese restaurant?

The food is indeed Majestic! One of my favourite restaurants in Singapore, if only I my pocket allows me to indulge in this more often! Photographs speak a thousand words, so well, let me just showcase the photographs. All the dishes are very good, exquisite in taste and sight! One of the places that you should bring for a special birthday or celebration. I wish my grandmothers were alive, I would certainly bring them here!Delicious bowl of fish maw soup with abalone. Not surprise if this uses a pork bone soup simmered for ages. Wasabi prawnsThe lamb culet that i chose. Lamb cutlet with carrot cake. I thought the sauce was too overpowering. Too strong and too sweet that it masks the original taste of the lamb.The sea perch which was alrightBeefyMango duckThe wonderful heavenly fried durian ice cream.Avocado cream was good but of course nothing beats the fried ice cream which Majestic is well known for continue reading
