It is indeed a pleasurable and welcoming experience being invited to food tasting at one of the better known Dian Xiao Er Restaurants at Bishan.

Last week’s dinner menu was a variation of Set-B, with the replacement of Luxurious Abalone Treasure Pot, ending with a treat of dessert. The Cold Double-Boiled Hashima brings the pre-festive meal to a close and it was a beautifully crafted suggestion.Last week’s dinner menu was a variation of Set-B, with the replacement of Luxurious Abalone Treasure Pot, ending with a treat of dessert.

Simple as it is a lot of preparation goes into this appetizer. After pouring in the ingridients and sauces, normally by the diners themselves, the dish need to be toss and as high as possible.

Prosperity Salmon Yu Sheng
This Teochew-Style raw fish salad popular amongst Chinese during Chinese New Year (CNY) is supposed to be served on the 7th day of the Lunar Year but nowadays, people just love to savor the dish even before CNY. The tossing of ingredients symbolizes prosperity and longevity and what a way to begin the year of the Sheep / Goat at Dian Xiao Er.

Shark’s Fin with Crab Meat and Conpoy
I thought I never get to taste Shark Fin again in a restaurant … In fact I felt a little guilty as I believe in conservation but the taste lure me away. The delicately prepared double boiled broth with crab and conpoy just brings out the flavorfulness of the soup.

Signature Herbal Roast Duck with Ten Wonders Sauce
Not exactly like roasted goose I tasted in Hong Kong but definitely more than a substitute, in fact a must try. This tender succulent duck is roasted with Ten Wonders Sauce. We also get to try out the other 2 sauces: Angelica Herb and Wild Ginseng. My personal choice of sauce to go with the Ten Wonder roasted duck: Wild Ginseng. I give this dish 5-star

Sautéed Baby Lobsters with Pumpkin Sauce
Pumpkin Sauce to go with Baby Lobster … What a choice! I love the taste of the unique blend coconut with salted eggs and the infusion of spices simply goes very well with pumpkin sauce. This dish would have gotten better rating if not for other better dishes ahead … I would give this a 4-star for now.

Chinese dish should never goes without fish and I must say the size of the Pomfret certainly raise eye brows and gives everyone more than a fair share. This Pomfret steamed in Cantonese style together with thinly sliced spring onions, carrots, ginger, onion and chives truly brings out the aroma of the fish.

Luxurious Abalone Treasure Pot
I would have placed this as my number one dish, had the mushroom and pea also been used in the Braised Trotter but its certainly makes one feels rich, enjoying the luxury of high society dishes ... No wonder this dish is a treasure pot. The wholesome sauce goes very well with black moss and the tasty and crunchy sea cucumber, simply compliment with the tender succulent abalone.

Double-Boiled Chilled Hashima
Last but not least, our dessert was the Double-Boiled Chilled Hashima … What a refreshing ending. The idea of this dessert originates from the term “Hasma”, related to frogs … but the extra smooth, refreshing and sweet Hashima, just makes one forget the origin instead one feel heavenly and completely fulfill after a sumptuous dinner at Dian Xiao Er.

Other Info. : They have ongoing promotions such as for 2 or more pax at reasonable prices. The privilege card is also worth exploring ... For more information refer to http://www.dianxiaoer.com.sg/promotions/
