SIN: Peach Garden

Nostalgic watercress honey drink... :3

For someone who stays in People's Park Complex which is just one minute (or less) away from Chinatown MRT station, I've been visiting Chinatown Point very frequently, especially to buy groceries. One mundane day after work, I decided to give Peach Garden, noted for its Cantonese cuisine, a try.

Roasted Crispy Pork Cubes S$12.00
Taste: 8.5/10

I very much enjoyed the roasted pork cubes which had a nice ratio of fat and meat of approximately 2 : 3. Having dreamily crispy skin, each of the cube was robust, adequately seasoned and went really well with the tangy mustard sauce.

Fried Crispy Eggplant with Pork Floss S$10.00
Taste: 8.5/10

Bored with the usual leafy selections, I decided to have a go at the deep-fried eggplants which were executed well. The pork floss was pleasantly sweet and not as dry as I thought it'd be, complementing the crispy pieces of the nightshades.

Steamed Rice with Minced Pork and Salted Egg S$8.80
Taste: 6.5/10

The dish which I had a high expectation of happened to be somewhat disappointing. So far, no HK style steamed rice in Singapore could beat the one I had during my exchange days at HKUST. The minced pork could definitely be juicier, while the salted egg didn't really live up to its name. Having said that, it didn't taste bad.

Stewed Ee-Fu Noodle with Chives and Mushroom S$13.80
Taste: 8.5/10

The seemingly lacklustre dish in terms of appearance really caught me by surprise. The moist, slippery noodle went down the throat easily, kicking my taste buds with its sweet and savoury taste. While the mushrooms were juicy, they could be more generous with the amount. Also, more chives, please?

Watercress Honey (Cold) S$3.50
Taste: 8.5/10

While the steamed rice didn't quite remind me of my exchange days in HK, the cold, nutritious drink was indeed nostalgic. A glass of mild, earthy sweetness with a hint of lemon was all I needed to unwind after a gruelling day.

Melon's Rating
Taste: 8/10
Ambience: 7.5/10
Service: 7.5/10
Overall: 7.5/10

Based on the largely positive experience, I'd really like to go back to the restaurant soon for another round of sumptuous dinner. Pika's advice: Do try their recommended dim sum dishes for brunch or lunch!
