For a limited period from 02 March 2020 to 30 April 2020, Peach Garden Chinese Restaurant presents "OISHI Flavours of Japan", a delectable menu with Japanese-inspired creations to celebrate the Cherry Blossom season. The menu showcases the chefs' culinary skill incorporating Cantonese fare with premium ingredients sourced directly from Japan, rolling out the brand new dim sum, a la carte and set menu offerings.
Dim Sum 4.2/5
The restaurant has jazzed up the dim sum creations with fine Japanese ingredients such as Steamed Siew Mai with Sea Urchin ($8.80), Steamed Xiao Long Bao with A5 Wagyu Beef ($8.80) and Steamed Dumpling with Japanese Geoduck Clam ($7.80). The classic siew mai is crowned with premium-grade uni, while the xiao long bao is levelled up with the use of top-grade A5 wagyu beef silvers within. My favourite is the steamed dumpling with Japanese geoduck clam. It is a luxe version of the har gow, topped with a slice of crunchy clam paired with ginger.
Chilled Sea Urchin Tofu 4.2/5
Served in an ice bowl is the Chilled Sea Urchin Tofu ($22) inspired by the Japanese pitan tofu dish. While the tofu was smooth and silky, I couldn't really taste the uni. However, the star for me is the piquant sake-spiked century egg sauce, that brings the dish together. The century egg "white" topping provided that extra textural enjoyment, garnished with tatami iwashi.
Pan-fried Shirobuta Pork with Chef's Special Sauce 4.2/5
Meat lovers will enjoy the Pan-fried Shirobuta Pork with Chef's Special Sauce ($28). It is simply seasoned with salt and pepper for diners to appreciate the natural flavour of the beautiful meat. It is paired with seasonal vegetables, edible golden popped rice and a choice of chef's special sauce. There are 3 flavours to choose from black pepper, mala or mushroom. An A5 wagyu beef option is also available on the new menu.
Flaming Seafood Fried Rice in Whole Japanese Pumpkin 3.5/5
If you order the Flaming Seafood Fried Rice in Whole Japanese Pumpkin ($28), the staff will set it alight at the table. Actually, I find it gimmicky as the dish is not infused with the liquor aroma. Inside the Japanese pumpkin is fragrant fried rice with prawns, scallops and morsels of sweet pumpkin, blanket with a layer of melted cheese.
Poached Surimi-men with Japanese Oyster 4.5/5
Besides the a la carte dishes. There is a 6-course set menu priced at $68 per person for the Oishi Flavours of Japan promotion. A highlight of the set menu is the Poached Surimi-men with Japanese Oyster. The pink noodle is made from fish paste hence the springy bite, complemented by the comforting superior broth. It comes with 2 juicy and plump Japanese oysters too.
Sweet Temptation 3.8/5
For a sweet ending, there is the Sweet Temptation which comprises of half creamy pumpkin and half pandan-infused sweet potato paste. On the side is a flower-shaped pastry filled with Mandarin peel accented red bean paste.
The Oishi Flavours of Japan promotion will be available at all seven Peach Garden Chinese Restaurants across the island except for the dim sum items which are only available at Thomson Plaza and Hotel Miramar outlet.
Note: This is an invited tasting.
