Here are some of our favourites.
Deep-fried Signature Pork Belly Roll with Yam
This is one of the dishes not to be missed. Coated with crunchy soybean crisps and fried to golden perfection, the rolls provided an interesting mouthful with its crispy exterior and alluring fork-tender interior. Beneath the crunchy skin, the piping hot pork belly remained juicy with subtle notes of sweetness from the yam. It only takes one bite to understand why these rolls become one of the restaurant’s signature dishes.
Minced Meat Dumpling with Green Tea Paste
Siew Mai with Diced Abalone
This dish was an absolute winner for us. Encased in the thin wonton skin, is a generous mixture of succulent chicken and plump prawn meat which accentuated the sweetness of the siew mai. Topped with the lavish steamed abalone, the dish was stunning both in taste and appearance. Trust us on this; each bite will send a burst of flavours in your mouth. We are salivating already, are you too?
Double-boiled Chicken Soup with Abalone, Sea Whelk, Cordyceps Flowers and Conpoy
No dining experience is complete at Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant without a bowl of their hearty double-boiled soup. The bubbling hot soup emanates a strong fragrance that is sure to get you excited before you even begin sipping it. Each mouthful is robust and flavourful, with a right balance of umami and herbal notes. In fact, we were delighted with the generous portion of ingredients, especially the chicken. The meat was silky, which is an indication that the soup having been boiled for a long time.
Homemade Bean Curd with Wolfberry
Wrapping up the satisfying meal, you can look forward to exploring the dessert bar for items such as Double-boiled Pear and White Fungus with Osmanthus, Cream of Fresh Mango with Pomelo and Chilled Osmanthus Jelly. One of the desserts we relished in is the popular Homemade Beancurd with Wolfberry. The smooth beancurd is characterised by its silkiness and served with a dollop of fresh wolfberries. Our palates were saturated with mild sweetness and fragrance of soy with each spoonful. All we could say is, the bean curd indeed added the perfect finishing touches to the entire buffet experience.
