our OPS carpe diem (seize the day) yolo (you only live once) gang arranged to have 4pax lunch at kai gardens on 16.5.2018. ^^
(blogging about carper diem yolo made me think we should do something more in this group than just dining…)
another bro not available so we visited him after lunch. 🙂
this a top value set 6-course including peking duck at $98++ for 4pax..
the peking duck 五彩缤纷鸭 alone ala carte cost S$88, and the second eat would cost another S$18.
the 2 appetisers were very good standard = deepfried fish skin & a vinegared cloud fungus.
the 2 dimsum we had today = spring rolls & 潮州粉果. very good standard i would say. the simple spring rolls were crispy outside, not oily, & tasty inside. 潮州粉果 was good!
i would prefer the xiaolongbao 小笼包which they served ladt time though…
peking duck 五彩缤纷鸭 is their signature dish here.
served with 5 wraps (beetroot, spinach, pumpkin, charcoal & normal) and 5 sauces (seafood, pepper, wasabi, sweet sauce & normal).
duck was sliced very well & there were like 20pieces or more enuf for each person takng each of the 5 wraps.
another unique ingredient not seen in other peking duck dishes is the crispy item. it added a special texture & mild sweetness to the dish. a very important ingredient.
the stir-fried fillet was ok i guess, if pedestrian for this standard of restaurant.
the shredded braised beehoon was very tasty.
osmanthus jelly was good (M liked it). quite a simple low value dessert though to make up the set.
after lunch, we went to visit our buddy HC, and had a cuppa at starbucks.
