How did you celebrate Mother's day and the subsequent Father's day this year? My family usually picks a restaurant for a simple dinner and that more or less wraps up our celebration for such special occasions. That said, I was more than excited to try out the Chinese cuisine here at 金山樓 (Jin Shan @ Marina Bay Sands). Upon reaching, you'll be ushered through the lush inviting corridors into those 6-seaters VIP 'pot', or if you have more people with you, you can opt for their VIP rooms further into the restaurant. 金山特色三拼
Jin Shan Special Combination
My personal favourite among the three different meat was the roasted duck. Most of the duck meat has been deboned, well if not, the tender meat still falls off the bone at a mere prod of your fork. Apart from the tender juicy meat, the skin has been roasted to an extremely crispy thin layer with a slightly sweet taste to finish it. An absolutely no-frills meat among the three thanks to the boneless roasted pork served in cube size, I must say I am caught in a dilemma to decide if the roasted duck or this was my favourite. The pork pieces has a roasted top layer covering the chewy pork meat, with very minimal fats as seen in the photo. What surprises me was that it tasted really well by dabbing it with the wasabi, thoughtfully presented at the side in small tiny portions.
Seafood Soup Served in Mini Pumpkin
The Seafood Soup served in Mini Pumpkin was a bowl packed lusciously with scallops and prawn bits in the sweetest seafood broth. Finish off the soup with some pumpkin flesh as you conveniently scrape off the flesh along the edge of the pumpkin.
Steamed Cod Fillet with Chinese Wine and Egg White
The steamed cod fish was then served in individual portions for all of us. A piece of cod fish was very delicately served on top of a pool of Egg White in Chinese wine sauce. Enjoy the best out of this dish by consuming the smooth fish and spongy egg white together with the chinese wine.
Fujian Wheat Vermicelli with Shredded Meat
Another family's favourite could not escape the Fujian Wheat Vermicelli. Although the name itself did not mention, this dish actually comes with prawns and fried eggs apart from the bountiful shredded meat. The vermicelli itself was neither oily nor dry, proving itself a fine staple dish for family dinne 咸蛋明虾球
Golden Sands Fresh Prawn with Salted Egg
The Golden Sands Fresh Prawn with Salted egg not only looked incredibly tempting, it also gave out a strong salted egg aroma when served. The salted egg sauce was unfortunately a little too grainy, which ended up making me cough a little as the spices caught in between my throat. Nonetheless, the sauce was great for its strong salted egg taste. However, the large prawn, although really juicy and fresh, seems to be a little bland on the inside.
Chilled Mango Sago with Pomelo
To end off the 7-course meal, we enjoyed the Chilled Mango Sago filled with aloe vera bits, mango chunks and pomelo. The sweetness was just right.
Jin Shan is a rather high class chinese restaurant not just because it's located in MBS. However, the quality of the food has pride itself and is worth every of your penny.
