Xin Cui­sine Chi­nese Restau­rant

T. Dining by Singapore Tatler - - Chinese -

The 153-seat restau­rant, with its var­i­ous shades of red and brown, pro­vides com­fort­able ban­quettes and reg­u­lar seat­ing that are vis­ually ap­peal­ing. Xin’s home-style roast duck with tea leaves is de­light­fully ten­der and aro­matic, with the scent of chrysan­the­mum, jas­mine and oo­long tea per­me­at­ing the crispy-skin poul­try. The well-com­posed menu of mod­ern Can­tonese dishes in­cludes the chef’s rec­om­men­da­tion of stir-fried wagyu beef cubes with black pep­per, paired with sweet lon­gan, crisp as­para­gus, and red and yel­low cap­sicum in a colour­ful pre­sen­ta­tion. For a bowl of nos­tal­gic com­fort food, the poached rice with seafood in a rich, del­i­cate su­pe­rior broth is also rec­om­mended, topped with sprin­kles of golden crispy rice. Sweet mango coulis with hashima, served in a fluted melon and paired with a warm red bean pan­cake, leaves a last­ing im­pres­sion. The com­pact wine list is ad­e­quate and ser­vice staff do their best in this busy restau­rant.
