Tablescape @ Grand Park City Hall - Welcome Year Of The Rabbit With An Array of New Lunar New Year Set Menus for Dine-in and Takeaway


Tablescape is a modern European restaurant on the third level of Grand Park City Hall. To welcome the rabbit year, Tablescape and Grand Park City Hall have joined hands to introduce new Lunar New Year set menus that start from $88/pax. As for small group gatherings and celebrations at home, you can tuck into their sets that are ready for delivery and takeaway.

Prosperity Yu Sheng 皇府捞起 4/5

Tablescape’s Yu Sheng is a lighter rendition. I enjoyed that it was not too sweet nor too tangy, and the vegetables were fresh with a crunch. Other notable ingredients are abalone, smoked salmon, crispy fish skin, gold leaf and avruga caviar.

Double Boiled Fish Maw Soup with Cordyceps 冬虫草炖花胶 / 招财进宝 4.5/5

While Double Boiled Fish Maw Soup like this tends to carry a thicker consistency, this bowl was lighter but still extremely flavourful. The base chicken stock is made by boiling a whole chicken with pork bones, Yunnan ham, mirepoix and dried sole fish before the fish maw and cordyceps are placed in it to steam.

Combination Platter of Josper Charred Char Siew with Honey Sauce and Truffle Duck 双星报喜 3.8/5

In this Combination Platter, you can enjoy Joseph Charred Char Siew with Honey Sauce and Black Truffle Duck. We enjoyed the sweet char siew more between the two, for its more tender texture, while the truffle duck leaned more bony - though it could be due to the parts I had.

Soya Braised Chicken with Ginger and Scallion 桶子豉油鸡 百鸟朝凤 3.8/5

The next dish we tried was the Soya Braised Chicken with Ginger and Scallion. It is stuffed with Chinese wine, ginger and scallion. The chicken is further marinated and braised. The meat was tender, but it did leave us hoping that the flavours of the braising stock could come through more.

Sautéed Asparagus with Scallops and XO Sauce XO 酱芦笋炒扇贝, 富贵花开 4.2/5

The Sautéed Asparagus is done in XO sauce, garlic and Chinese wine, served with lightly seared plump Hokkaido scallops. The asparaguses were firm and tender.

Wok Fried Yee Fu Noodle with Tiger Prawns, Scallops and Baby Abalone 海鲜焖伊面 丰衣足食 4.5/5

The Yee Fu Noodle is first blanched in a housemade chicken stock that is made by boiling a whole chicken, pork bones, Yunnan ham, mirepoix and dried sole fish for a day. It's then wok-fried with a generous amount of vegetables, mushrooms, deshelled tiger prawns, yellow chives, scallops and baby abalone. It was fragrant and flavourful, a favourite among my dining companions.

Yam Paste with Ginkgo Nut 白果芋泥 | 甜甜蜜蜜 4.5/5

Tablescape's Yam Paste with Ginkgo Nut checks all the boxes for a good bowl of yam paste. After steaming the yam and blending it into a puree, it is further steamed with shallot oil, sugar and ginkgo nuts. The result is a thick and smooth paste that is mildly sweetened. Finally, housemade coconut cream is drizzled on top of the yam paste to finish it off.
