5 On 25 @ Andaz Singapore - Weekend Dim Sum Club With Over 25 Varieties Of Handcrafted Delicacies


The newly launched modern Cantonese Restaurant in Andaz Singapore, 5 on 25 launches its inaugural weekend dim sum brunch experience - Weekend Dim Sum Club. Guests can look forward to an a la carte menu of over 25 varieties of handcrafted delicacies alongside sweeping views of Singapore.


Guests can also elevate the brunch experience with a suite of beverages. For an additional $78 per pax, guests can sip a free flow of Delamotte Brut N V Champagne, bottled beers as well as three low-alcoholic and non-alcoholic organic sparkling teas by Copenhagen Sparkling Tea Company in Denmark.

Shrimp and Cod Fish Beancurd Rolls 3.5/5

We started with the Shrimp and Cod Fish Beancurd Rolls ($3.50 pc). It is not something new, but the incorporation of cod fish elevated the textural bite.

Lemon Bacon Rolls 3.8/5

Next is the Lemon Bacon Rolls ($7.50), which come in a creamy sauce that helps to balance the savouriness and lemon's zestiness. 

Shrimp Dumplings, Lychee, Mustard 4.2/5

This is not your usual Shrimp Dumplings ($7.50). The addition of lychee and mustard brightens the taste profile of the beautiful morsel.

Chef Lam's Signature Deep-fried Duck Roll

One of Chef Lam's Signatures is the Deep-fried Duck Roll ($12) stuffed with duck and mushrooms, dressed in oyster sauce. It feels like having "Tau Kwa Pok", a traditional hawker item that is no longer commonly seen in Singapore.

Shredded Chicken with Sesame Sauce 3.5/5

Besides dim sum items, several chef's recommendations make up the weekend dim sum club menu. One of them is the Shredded Chicken with Sesame Sauce ($12) paired with cucumber and crispy rice puffs. The sesame sauce is interesting. It has a nutty, tangy taste profile giving the dish a delightful finishing.

Stir-fried Assorted Mushroom 4/5

Wrapping up on dim sum lunch, we had the Stir-fried Assorted Mushroom ($12) cooked in oyster sauce and Fried Rice with Wagyu Beef in Truffle Sauce ($38). 

Fried Rice with Wagyu Beef, Truffle Sauce 3/5

Having just the fried rice alone can be pretty dull. Hence I would recommend getting the stir-fried assorted mushroom to go along. As for the fried rice, the wagyu and truffle sauce were hardly distinguishable. Therefore it is pretty ordinary.
