who would have expected a Si Chuan restaurant to incorporate our local claypot rice to its menu? For more, visit: http://dairycream.blogspot.jp/2013/09/si-chuan-dou-hua-winter-revelry-of.html
Speaking of claypot rice, the most irresistible flavour is none other than the Sliced Pork and Salted Fish version (咸鱼五花肉煲饭)
. With the increase in prices of salted fish, it was a delight to find generous-sized salted fish in the pot of fluffy rice.
Meanwhile there is also the Claypot Rice with Chicken, Live Frog and Enoki Mushroom (松菇双滑鸡煲饭).
一道菜讲求所谓的 “色、香、味”---Perhaps due to the cool and comfortable interiors, there was not much of the sizzling sounds or smoky scents of charred rice. Fortunately, I could gleefully scrape off an abundant amount of burnt rice at the base of each claypot and swirl in more dark soya sauce provided alongside. If you are ordering other dishes, each claypot rice can feed about 2-3 mouths.
The highlight of the day was the Barbequed Suckling pig $198,
which was indeed a terrific dish. Prepared by Barbeque Chef Zheng Guang Liang, the pig from Hebei China is grilled excellently to produce a crisp, burmished crackling skin and ladies can forget about scraping the fats off the skin. Meanwhile the meat, which was sliced and re-served for easy consumption, was neither too dry nor too greasy—a culinary feat that deserves a round of applause for the chef.
Besides the new promotional dishes, regular items such as the Double-boiled Deer Tendon Soup with Deer Antler (上等鹿茸炖鲜鹿根汤) $18/person
is definitely worth ordering. Made with good quality ingredients and herbs such as cordyceps flowers that warms your body, it is a nourishing brew that is brimming with collagen.
Jumping straight to desserts, What forged a deeper impression was the Deep-fried Yam coated with Soya Bean Crisps (豆莊皇沙酥) $18
. The yam was soft, with a crunchy exterior that triggers your sweet receptors but not too much. And the fact that it is made with soya bean gives us a very good excuse to enjoy this indulgent snack!
