恭喜发财!新年快乐!Gong Xi Fa Cai! Happy Chinese New Year!

Are you all prepared for the feastings, gatherings and “interrogations”? 🙂

I definitely enjoy the feastings and gatherings and my 1st Chinese New Year themed event this year is lunch at Peony Jade @ Keppel Club.

Check out this awesome Chinese New Year display at Keppel Club. So festive~

The interior & stage of Peony Jade @ Keppel Club is pretty eye catching as well. I couldn’t resist making my way to the front to take this photo.

Despite having patronized Peony Jade countless times, this is my 1st Ala Carte Dim Sum Buffet @ Peony Jade Keppel Club.

I’ve been meaning to try Peony Jade’s Dim Sum for quite some time now so I’m ecstatic! Plus Peony Jade now has an amazing Chinese New Year Promotion where their Ala Carte Dim Sum Buffet includes Chinese New Year dishes as well.

1st dish of the meal is of course Peony Jade’s Prosperity Atlantic Salmon Lou Hei (Yusheng) with Caviar (发财三文鱼鱼子捞起). I’m not sure about the Caviar but I’m happy with the thick slices of salmon.

The server prepared the Yusheng for us coupled with auspicious greetings and it’s chopsticks action time! We grabbed our long chopsticks and start tossing the Yusheng while chanting our “wishes”. Though it’s mostly “Huat Ah”! 发啊

The portion of Yusheng is huge and we didn’t stop the server from pouring in the entire bowl of oil and sweet sauce so even though the 1st few mouthfuls are nice & crunchy, I quickly get tired of the sweetness of the dish.

So, word of advice, if you aren’t into sweet yusheng, limit the sweet sauce.

Another Chinese New Year dish is Peony Jade’s Hong Kong Style Deep Fried “Soon Hock” Fish with Light Soy Sauce (港式油浸笋壳). We love this dish. Thumbs up. It’s crispy on the outside and yet the fish meat beneath is still moist. Nice~

Back to the theme of Dim Sum Buffet. Yes, buffet. So, we courageously ordered every item in the Dim Sum section, except for one – Fried Raddish Cake with Beansprouts in XO Sauce.

Personally I love the Pan Fried Carrot Cake with Preserved Meat (腊味煎萝卜糕). It’s soft and moist with a nice flavour from the Preserved Meat. I’ll gladly have another serving if there’s space in my stomach 😛

Peony Jade’s Steamed Black Eye Bean Cake with Ham and Radish (蒸眉豆糕) is a different type of dim sum. Maybe I’ll coin it as creative? It’s lightly flavoured with an interesting texture. Maybe some gelatin was added? It’s nice as well.

Peony Jade’s Steamed Har Kau (水晶鲜虾铰) has a relatively thin & translucent skin with 2 juicy &chewy prawns within. Not bad as well.

What’s Har Kau without Siew Mai. Peony Jade’s Steamed Siew Mai aka Pork & Shrimp Dumpling (烧卖) is pretty decent and it’s good that there’s no fatty meat. At least not in the one I devoured.

Peony Jade’s Char Siew Chee Cheong Fun aka Rice Roll (叉烧肠粉) is quite good as well. The Chee Cheong Fun skin is soft and thin. I just wish there’s more char siew 😉

Another dish not commonly found in the category of Dim Sum is Peony Jade’s Hot & Sour Meat Dumpling (京川铰子). This dish has also gotten thumbs up from the table. It has a stimulating spicy flavour 😀

I quite like Peony Jade’s Steamed Beancurd Roll with Black Bean Sauce (豉汁鲜竹卷) as well.

The above 7 dishes are Dim Sum items I’ll order again.

Amongst the other dishes I’ve tried, I wasn’t wowed by Peony Jade’s Deep-Fried Dim Sum selection. And I dislike Peony Jade’s Baked Flaky ‘Cha Siew So’ topped with Chicken Floss (肉菘叉烧酥).

And out of the dishes I didn’t try, Steamed Custard and Salted Yolk Bao (香软奶皇流沙包) drew mixed reviews with comments that 黑社会’s version is nicer.

While Steamed Glutinous Rice in Lotus Leaf Parcel (荷香珍珠鸡) got a thumbs down.

All in all, it was still a nice meal with immense value. We definitely walked away with an immensely stuffed stomach.

Oh I almost forgot, skip the desserts 😉
