Royal China @ Raffles offers a very comfortable and tranquil setting, soothing, even. Its light cyan / aqua colored walls are often likened to the "Tiffany & Co's Blue Box" hues, and this is a tone of luxury and calmness. The clean-cut furnishings makes the place elegant but non-pretentious
We started with Char Siew Paus (buns with red, sweet pork meat) - soft and fluffy bun with tender pork cubes within, marinated in a sweet sauce. This is rather tasty, but I still prefer the traditional Hong Kong's Char Siew Pau that comes with the dark-colored minced pork.
The next item we ordered was the Peking Duck with Caviar - they served the skin wrapped in thin sheets of crepe / popiah skins, alongside with a small plate of Caviar, spring onions and a sweet dark sauce on the side. The skin was tasty and crispy, of course, and paired with the somewhat grainy texture and sweet hints of the crepe skins, and crackling caviar, the sensation was amazing.
Next, the Char Siew Shu (pastry with red sweet pork meat within) - the crusts was a fluffy shell of slightly-crunchy flour, made all the more fragrant by sesame seeds atop. The red meat bits within (char siew) was delicious and tasty, and there was not a hint of fatty meat - somethhing that we appreciated greatly.
Following this, we had the Scallops Dumplings - a delicious creation of thin, sticky dumpling skin encompassing scallops and shrimps within. The seafood items were fresh and added a touch of flouncy-ness to the dumpling. The leek within (leek or spring onion or some other strong-flavored vegetable within) also gave this dumpling a distinctive flavor.
