Pricey Singaporean Chinese Food

I came to Hua Ting with high expectations, perhaps a little too high.

An old school establishment which has been around for ages, the place is popular for business dining.

At a recent visit, I started out with the Hot and Sour Soup ($12 per bowl). No surprises here as it reminded me a lot of the Americanised Chinese soup that I had in the US.

I then tried the Sweet and Sour Prawn, which once again reminded me of the Chinese food that I had in the US.

My next dish, the garlic broccoli was well executed - slightly sauteed in garlic and very crunchy.

The next dish, the dried chilli chicken had a good level of tenderness and was not very spicy.

Probably the best dish of the night had to be the "live" Soon Hock ($9.50 per 100grams). The freshness of the fish steamed in light soya sauce was evident in every bite.

The final dish of fried rice was a little disappointing as it was dry and did not have "wok hei".

Overall, food was alright, but I felt that prices were a little steep and one could get a good  Chinese fix without having to pay such high prices.

disappointed

After having to read much good review on Hua Ting, maybe I had expected a little too much. A let down is my verdict. Furthermore, there is just way too much msg in the food. My whole family was thirsty after the meal.

Very strong in their pastry!

Yes, Hua Ting is one of the dim sum restaurants I would recommend to friends. It is very strong in its pastry I feel while slightly weaker than Wah Lok when it comes to steamed dim sum but still decent and pretty good. Priced at about $5 per basket, I find it reasonable. Service is pretty normal and just slightly above average as they would leave you to guess the dim sum on your own. This place is really quite popular among Singaporean families. I tried booking one week ago and couldn’t a table so I did two weeks in advance this time to secure one. So please book really early in advance if you want to visit this restaurant!

Great for Special Occasions!

My family headed to Hua Ting last night for reunion dinner. We have made reservations at 730pm and arrived just in time after some traffic jam along Thomson road. Everywhere also jam! Our table was all ready and waiting for us when we arrived. We were seated by the windows facing the main entrance, which was really cool cos we could see all the cars and buses streaming in. The hotel was nicely decorated with Chinese New Year lanterns and drapes. Actually we quite liked the hotel interior.. A bit old school but bustling with activity. Don’t mind going there again!

 I noticed something really nice in the restaurant which is that they got this work station in the middle of the restaurant where they will cut up the Peking duck.. And get the food ready before they serve the customers. It’s right in front of the tables so we could see what they were doing. I thought this was really nice – it’s a delight seeing staff at work handling our food with expertise and care! The restaurant was full when we were there last night – they have a big private dining room where there were 3 tables inside, and maybe a couple more smaller private rooms – all full. But somehow we didn’t feel very cramped or disturbed cos it was nicely spreaded. I think my table was the noisiest with kids! We took our order with this waitress who was busy but yet patient enough to recommend us the dishes. This restaurant actually is like any other Zhi Char restaurant where you can customize the dishes! So we ordered a steamed Soon Hock fish, stewed chicken with fungus, stir fried broccoli, 3 of their signature baked pork ribs and a plate of roast duck and roast pork.
