Sichuan Dou Hua Nostalgic Feast @ Park Royal Kitchener Road
The promotion probably went viral after soshiok and the mainstream media featured it, so much so, getting a table was difficult. Two weeks in advanced we booked for this nostalgic feast. I suppose the price point worked well because it’s under $30 and there’s a 4-for-3 promotion going on. Sweet on sweet…! I’ve had dimsum at Sichuan Douhua ala carte before and it left a memorable impression but the main draw of the buffet is going back in time with the old favourites.
I never quite learnt the tricks of folding a napkin despite dining out so very often.
Hakka Dumpling with Turnip
My main grouse is the skin is too sticky which makes it difficult to lift and eat even!
Chicken with Mushroom and Chinese Sausage Casserole Rice
Decent but not wow.
These are a single portion.
Crispy Taro Ball with Minced Chicken and Mushroom
A tad dry but pretty good!
Panfried Carrot Cake
Pork Belly Roll with Taro and Mushroom
These were deceiving. Tasted soooo good, we had doubles! The taro and pork belly were so complementary, I wonder why this ain't a regular on dimsum menus. Juice spills out with every tasty bite, delicious much!
I was told to dunk the "rice cake" into the broth before consuming it. What in essence is a rice cake was actually a fried meat dumpling. Loved the simplicity of this - flavours especially. Clean flavours without complexity, loved it!
Honeycomb Cake Topped with Chrysanthenum
Too spongey for me.
These dense balls without filling were actually quite addictive! Simple ingredients without too much fanfare but that is what nostalgia is about.
Deep Fried Peanut Cake in "Teochew Style"
Steamed Bun with Lard and Fig Fruit
I never quite got this. Lard starring at me in the face is just odd though these were really just jellied bits.
Until 31 October
