Peach Blossoms @ PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay - Discover The Evolution of Modern Chinese Cuisine by Chef Edward Chong


Peach Blossoms at PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, under the guidance of Chef Edward Chong, has elevated Chinese cuisine to a whole new level with his innovative interpretations and exquisite presentation, earning the respect and admiration of diners.

Deep-fried 'Cigar' Roll 5/5

The dish that has been making waves on everyone's social media feeds is the Deep-fried 'Cigar' Roll. It arrives in a cigar box, and the presentation is akin to a cigar. It is a clever twist on the traditional Chinese crispy duck spring roll. The cigar is essentially a crispy roll enveloping freshly peeled snow crab, prawn mousse, foie gras, and black truffle. It is accompanied by Beijing duck sauce and Japanese sesame sauce, adding a delightful fusion of flavours.

Double-boiled Soup 4.5/5

An exceptional Double-boiled Soup is created from fresh Jeju abalone and free-range chicken. It features a rare and precious ingredient - the Sarcodon Imbricatus wild edible mushroom from China, which is known for its rich nutrients, tender flesh, and unique aroma.

Applewood-smoked Iberico Pork Belly 4.2/5

Inspired by Stephen Chow's iconic movie dish, "黯然销魂饭" (Sorrowful Rice), this creation is a deconstructed masterpiece. It includes tenderized and marinated Pork Belly slow-roasted over binchotan charcoal and smoked with applewood for a delightful fragrance. The dish is garnished with a quail egg and substitutes traditional rice with a golden, thin, crisp rice wafer.

Steamed Carrot Cake 4.5/5

The Steamed Carrot Cake, enhanced with Boston Lobster, Shiso Leaf, and Aromatic Lemongrass Sauce, is an off-menu creation that adds a luxurious and inventive twist to a traditional dish. The in-house "gan xiang" sauce elevates the silky-smooth, flavorful steamed carrot cake, complemented by charcoal-grilled Boston lobster.

Crab Roe Collagen Braised Mung Bean Noodles 5/5

My favourite from the evening is the Crab Roe Collagen Braised Mung Bean Noodles. This dish celebrates the rich flavours of crab in two delightful ways. First, there's the freshness and natural sweetness of the crab, showcased through a massive claw. Second, a seafood paste, skillfully created from crab meat, prawns, and water chestnut, coats the chewy mung bean noodles in a flavorful broth. The dish is enhanced by vinegar pearls, reminiscent of the Shanghainese tradition of savouring crab with drizzles of vinegar. And it doesn't end there – the dish is further enriched by a generous shaving of housemade crab roe, meticulously derived from seven female crabs, marinated with ten years hua diao wine, blended and slow-baked for two hours.

Chilled Peach Resin served in Philibon French Charentals Melon 4.5/5

Chilled Peach Resin, served in a Philibon French Charentals Melon, is an elegant and refreshing dessert. A cold melon soup blended with Hokkaido milk is poured into a half-carved melon, accompanied by melon balls and collagen-rich peach resin. Even the desserts at Peach Blossoms are executed with finesse.

Sweet Cart of Treasures 4.2/5

Dessert gets a unique twist with a Dessert Trolley, cleverly served from a dim sum cart. This delightful trolley offers a range of Chinese sweet treats, including Durian Sandwich, classic White Sugar Sponge Cake, fragrant Jasmine Tea Mousse, Taro Lava Puff, and delectable Salted Egg Yolk Lava Puff. Chef Edward's sweet offerings are an exquisite way to conclude a remarkable dining experience at Peach Blossoms.
