Straits Chinese Cuisine

Flavours at Zhongshan Park is the latest restaurant to open its door at the food haven stretch of Balestier road. The hotel restaurant at level 1 of Ramada Singapore serves authentic Straits Chinese cuisine coupled with a selected mix of international and western favourite. Understandable since it is a hotel restaurant and the need to cater for the different guest's palate.

Started with a pre-dinner mocktail, Curry Leave Mijoto while we waited for the rest of the table to arrive. The drink was very refreshing and surprisingly the curry leaves gave the drink a tad of a aromatic spiciness which complemented with the sweet and lemon flavours of the drink, giving it a total new experience which was enjoyable.

Appertiser was Kueh Pie Tie ($14.90) which the crispy pastry cup was stuffed with thinly sliced seasoned turnip and carrots slow cooked with pork belly. Topped with a bit of the homemade chilli, it was bursting with delightful flavours.

A refreshing and delectable Pork & Cucumber Salad ($14.90) that is tossed with shallots and sambal belachan. The contrasting textures of the slow cooked pork confit and cucumber was quite an enjoyment.

Nonya Itik Tim ($20.90) is a traditional Nonya dish in which the duck is stewed in pork ribs soup with sour plum, pickled mustard green, tomatoes and fresh chilli. The soup was nicely balance in flavour not too sour. While roast duck is added which I enjoyed, traditionally the soup does not come with it.

Stir fried in a hot black bean paste and bell peppers, the Stir Fried Slipper Lobster was fresh, meaty and springy.

The Nonya Beef Rendang ($24.90) was very well received by the table. Using the premium cut of the beef cheek in a rich spice paste and simmered in a coconut milk with lemon grass and tamarind water, the beef simmply melted in the mouth. It was very tender.

A staple of Peranakan cuisine is the Nonya Ayam Buah Keluah ($26.90) consisting of braised chicken and keluak nuts. Sometime the flesh of the nut is mixed with minced pork and prawns before it is stuffed back into the nut. For the version at Flavours, it is more straightforward without with pork and prawns.

The succulent Chilli King Prawns "Singapore Style" was stir fried in a savoury tomato and chilli gravy that tasted similar to our chilli crab gravy. The table was actually asking for some Man Tou or bun to clean off the delicious gravy.

The gula melaka and peel fresh durian work harmoniously for the beautiful Durian Pengat with Pandan Jelly dessert to wrap up the dinner on a sweet note.

Flavours at Zhongshan Park is an ideal place for authentic Straits Chinese cuisine. Family style communal dining takes centrestage at Flavours where guests are encouraged to share and sample all the culinary delights the restaurant has to offer.

Very nice Peranakan food

See the full review with pictures here.   Flavours at Zhong Shan Park is inside the Ramada Hotel, and is a peranakan restaurant that is more popular for its weekend buffets (it was practically deserted when we went), but I suppose the chefs still have to come to prepare the guest’s room service orders. The hotel is set in a very peaceful park that is home to two majestic banyan trees, perfect for an after dinner stroll. There’re several water features in the park, and also other eating establishments which can be a bit pricey, as this place would be but UOB cards get a 15%

A good variety of Buffet spread with great service

The restaurant is quite spacious. The service staff was friendly and efficient. The buffet spread is peranakan style. I was a bit skeptical. Luckily, they do have the international cuisine such as cold prawns, cold crab, salmon sashimi, and sushi as well. The cold prawns are very fresh and the sashimi is also cut in thick slices.

New Executive Chef

With a new Executive Chef Melvin Lim on board and a bigger selection of Straits Chinese delights, I looked forward to my second visit to Flavours at Zhongshan Park since I last dine here back in July 2013. The new menu consists of a larger selection of Straits Chinese cuisine while maintaining a carefully selected mix of international and western favourites, providing customers with more dining options.

Not to be missed is the condiments freshly prepared by the kitchen at Flavours. The different chilli sauces were so good that we actually suggested to the
