FUNG DING HUNG

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Home & Food Cook’s Day Out -

#02-01 Ren­dezvous Gallery, tel: 6333-9846. Open daily, 11.30am-3pm, 5.30-10pm A re­vamp of a restau­rant that used to be Hao Yun Lai, the menu is a mix of fa­mil­iar Chi­nese and fu­sion dishes with nu­tri­tious in­gre­di­ents.

THE MENU Chef Chai’s at­ten­tion to de­tail is im­pres­sive. In­stead of peanuts, our ap­pe­tiser was pick­led pump­kin slices with pas­sion­fruit mari­nade. He’s very good with dips and sauces, mak­ing even or­di­nary dishes stand out, such as deep-fried mar­bled goby with a spicy pep­per­mint sauce. • If you only have time for a quick lunch, any of the dou­ble-boiled soups from the list of 13 is a good choice, from Pi­geon with Eight Kinds of Herbs Soup ($16) to the luxe Ribs Soup with Fish Maw and Cordy­ceps Flow­ers ($16). • The Char­coal Bean­curd Braised with Bam­boo Fun­gus and Pine Mush­rooms ($14.80) is another win­ner, for its silky, melt-in-the-mouth tex­ture. • On the fu­sion front, the Chilled Lamb Jelly with Black Bean ($12.80) is one of the most in­ter­est­ing. The savoury jelly is made from chicken stock, bite­sized lamb pieces and black beans, and paired with a spicy dip with lots of chopped co­rian­der and spring onions.
