Braised Fish Maw Sea Cucumber served in Hot Stone Bowl 4.2/5
My dinner started with an off the menu dish, Braised Fish Maw Sea Cucumber served in Hot Stone Bowl. The bowl of collagen richness comes with premium fish maw and sea cucumber that has a delectable bouncy texture. You probably wake up next day having a glow on your face.
Sauteed Tiger Prawn with Asparagus 3.8/5
The Sauteed Tiger Prawn with Asparagus ($34 per pax) is topped with Japanese Sakura Ebi. The sweetness of the prawn is elevated with the seasoning of seaweed salt and pepper, finished with sakura ebi for an explosion of flavours. I thought a sauce may further liven the whole experience. Not forgetting the deep fried prawn head with its creamy roe inside. It is probably the most delicious part of the tiger prawn.
Poached Bamboo Clam with Cabbage and Fungus in Fish Broth 4.2/5
Poached Bamboo Clam with Cabbage and Fungus in Fish Broth ($20 per pax) is both hearty and comforting. Bamboo clam is usually served steamed with garlic, hence this is a good change in a delicious way. It is poached and served in a creamy fish broth that has been boiled for more than 2 hours, together with cloud ear fungus and Tianjin cabbage. The effort pays off, as everything comes together harmoniously.
Royal Secret Recipe Smoked Duck 4.5/5
The must try at Blossom Restaurant is their Royal Secret Recipe Smoke Duck ($40 half / $80 Whole). The crispy and tender duck is smoked with 15-Year Pu-Er Tea from Yunnan and Chrysanthemum from Zhejiang, infusing the fragrance into each morsel of the chicken. This is a dish of sight, scent and taste, that works beautifully together.
Chilled Mango Puree with Pomelo and Sago 4/5
Last but not least. I ended the dinner with Chilled Mango Puree with Pomelo and Sago ($10). I could taste the freshness of the mango puree, it is definitely made freshly from real mango with surprise pops from the pomelo's pulp. A sweet and refreshing dessert to wrap up the meal.
Note: This is an invited tasting.
