Peony Jade Keppel Club Chinese New Year Ala Carte Dim Sum Buffet

Category : Buffet, Chinese, Dim Sum, Promotions

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 😉

Welcome Back James @ Peony Jade Keppel Club

Category : Buffet, Chinese

Yeah! Another reason to gather and hang out 🙂 Even though the organising has been a little disorganised, no thanks to my watsapp for crashing and refusing to launch >_<

But we still came together before James flew off, thanks to everyone who actively coordinate with each other to make it work for an almost 包全场 experience! Woot~ I love my class!

I was lucky to be able to hitch a ride and was spared from walking the distance into Peony Jade @ Keppel Club where we came to enjoy the NTUC Plus 1 for 1 Promotion on Peony Jade’s Divine Ala-Carte Dinner Buffet.

This 1 for 1 Buffet Promotion is for Monday to Friday dinner in the months of June & July 2013, excluding eves and days of public holidays.

When we arrived, we were the 2nd group of customers in the entire restaurant and…we were also the last group of arriving diners.

Plus the 1st table subsequently moved into a room and as a result, it really feels like our class has reserved Peony Jade exclusively for our gathering =P

Similar to the Peony Jade’s Divine Ala-Carte Dinner Buffet I had at Clark Quay previously, there’s a list of 5 items which can only be ordered once.

I was a little disappointed that Shark’s Fin Soup was not amongst the items as it was really good the last time I had it.

And we weren’t impressed by the 5 items mainly because:

1. Atlantic Salmon Sashimi – The portion was very little. There were 5 of us and the portion served was more for at most 2 people.

2. Mini Buddha Jump Over the Wall – A friend commented that the Soup of the Day, which is watercress soup, is much better than this. To put things in perspective, he gave the thumbs up for the watercress soup.

3. Wok Tossed Chilli Crab – I didn’t really like the Chili Crab sauce. Friends who tried the crab said that the meat texture is not nice. Doesn’t seem to be very fresh.

4. Poached Fresh Prawns with Chinese Wine – Prawns are fresh. In fact all their prawn dishes are good. The only thing is we didn’t taste the Chinese Wine…

I very much prefer the limited 5 items from my previous dinner at Peony Jade @ Clark Quay.

The items we did enjoy very much, so much so that we kept ordering them over & over again were the “Sauteed Prawns with Wasabi Sauce & Caviar” from the seafood section & “Marinated Smoked Duck” from the appetizers section. These 2 dishes were the highlight of the dinner, for me at least. I simply LOVE the wasabi prawns!!

Another interesting moment was when a friend who arrived late places his order. “I’ll have 1 of everything from the seafood section except the last item”. We were like “We like your style”. Thumbs up

And then our table was filled with food…I no longer know which item is which so I think the other dish that I like could be the “Sauteed Prawns with Chilli Sauce”. It has the same texture as the wasabi prawns so I guess this could be it, judging from the name…

Deep Fried Prawns with Cereal” & “Fish Sliced ‘Thai’ Style” also received good feedback.

Besides eating & eating, I also learnt a few interesting things during the conversations we had over the food which I’ll share in future posts.

Once again, I took too many photos of the food and didn’t take any photo of the people. Frankly speaking, I also paiseh to take photos of people haha…since I myself don’t really like to take photos…so…we’ll see. Till next time 🙂
