PARKROYAL on Beach Road - Celebrates Lunar New Year With Local Festive Favourites At Ginger And Bespoke Tipples At Club 5


Ginger at PARKROYAL on Beach Road ushers in the Year of Tiger with a repertoire of uniquely local festive favourites, available from 15 January 2022 – 15 February 2022. As a halal-certified all-day dining restaurant, it is an ideal place to gather with colleagues, friends and your loved ones for a wholesome feast.

We started our buffet feast with a mini Chinese New Year Smoked Salmon Yu Sheng perfect for two. It was rather fun as there aren't many options out there made for two servings.

Butternut Pumpkin Soup 3/5

Double-boiled Soup 4/5

As starters, we had the festive special Butternut Pumpkin Soup and Double-boiled Soup which was homely and comforting.

Cereal Lobster 4.5/5

For the main festive spread, the Cereal Lobster was my favourite of all. The meat was plump and sweet, and the savoury-sweet cereal crust made it even more delicious.

Thai Jumbo Prawns with XO Sauce 3/5

Thai Jumbo Prawns with XO Sauce had a nice smokey flavour imparted from the grill.

Crayfish Ipoh Hor Fun 3/5

Crayfish Ipoh Hor Fun had a delicious broth rich with chicken stock, but the taste of the crayfish was rather bland.

Prawns with Asparagus and Pine Nuts 3.5/5

I enjoyed the Prawns with Asparagus and Pine Nuts too - seasoned to bring out the ingredients' natural flavours. I love how the roasted pine nuts add crunch and accent the dish with the dish nuttiness.

Grilled Chicken Bakkwa Slider 4/5, Braised Angus Beef Cheek with Mantou 3/5

The festive spread includes two delightful finger foods - Grilled Chicken Bakkwa Slider and Braised Angus Beef Cheek with Mantou. The Grilled Chicken Bakkwa Slider surprised us with a very yummy piece of chicken Bakkwa nicely grilled to render the fats and a nicely toasted fluffy bun. The latter, on the other hand, was a tad dry.


If your dinner feast ends early, drop by Club 5 for bespoke tipples. On the menu, you will find cocktails characterised by the interesting stories of Bugis Junction, Arab Street and Beach Road. It draws inspirations from its surrounding locations that are rich in history and heritage,


For a bold and smokey drink, go for Paper Flames, presented with some theatrics. For a lighter citrus drink yet laced with a tinge of complexity, you can try High Tide Swizzle concocted with cashew orgeat and passion fruit.


During the lunar new year, guests may opt for either a pair of personalised Glenfiddich 12-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whiskey with distinct fresh fruity notes or a twin bottle deal of either Milagro Tequila, Hendrick's Gin or Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum from $288 onwards.
