Start with the crispy wasabi aioli prawns, where large prawns come coated in a flavour­ful wasabi aioli gravy, and are served with fresh mango and to­biko. The pump­kin soup is a feast for the senses; its aroma whets the ap­petite, while the strong hue of the soup is a vis­ual treat. The Pek­ing duck comes wrapped in a soft flour pan­cake; its crispy skin, com­bined with the plum sauce, sim­ply melts in the mouth. In the rice with diced chicken, cashew nuts and chilli; the ten­der chicken is lib­er­ally coated in a sweet, de­lec­ta­ble sauce. End the meal with cher­ries in nu er hong and kuei hua chen Chi­nese wine cock­tail jelly, served with ly­chee sor­bet. The iced kachang-like dessert is a lit­tle sour, but when eaten with the ly­chee sor­bet and the jelly-like balls of or­ange that burst in the mouth, it makes for a re­fresh­ing end to the meal. There’s an ex­ten­sive wine list here, with op­tions rang­ing from old to new world. Ser­vice is prompt and wait­staff are po­lite.
