Si Chuan Dou Hua at TOP of UOB Plaza is one of the dining destination in the middle of CBD with a fantastic view of Singapore Skyline.

The décor of the restaurant is contemporary and classy, fit for the bankers or business associates to entertain their high net worth clients. Their awards are proudly displayed at the entrance of the restaurant. As there are children in our group, LD’s cousin booked a private room.

We started the lunch with Appetizer Sliced Pork in Garlic and Chilli Sauce (Medium - $21), Sliced Beef and Tripe in Chilli Sauce (Medium - $21) and Marinated Black Fungus with Chilli Padi (Medium - $12). The appetizer were basically cold dishes, however it packs a lot of heat, thanks to the chilli sauce and chilli padi. The meats were tender and the fungus were crunchy. Good Sichuan-style appetizers.

We ordered two type of cod fish ($12 per piece), Baked in Miso Sauce and Steam with Ginger and Soya Sauce (Cantonese Style). For the steamed version it was excellent. The cod fish has a buttery fells and melts in your mouth. Meanwhile, the one baked in miso sauce, looks good, however we find the miso sauce was just too salty that it covered the taste of the fish. I still believe when it come to fish, just keep it simple and use light herbs and seasoning.

Camphor Tea Smoked Duck, served with buns (Whole $56). One of the best dishes of the day. The combination of the smokey flavour, tender and succulent meat is just superb. They served it with mini buns and shredded spring onions, which are good to balance the saltiness of the duck. The fats on the duck were just awesome.

We find the dim sum standard here is very average. The ones that got our pick are the Siew Mai ($5 for 4 pcs) and Xiao Long Bao ($5 for 3pcs). The Siew Mai was meaty, tender and tasty. While the XLB has a good robust stock, but inconsistent. The Har Gau skin was too thin and sticky.

Service on that day was horrible because it was the last day of using the UOB Voucher. The restaurant was packed with people and they were understaffed. They just did not roster the service staff properly although they knew in advanced the restaurant will be fully booked. It took us more than 2.5 hours to finish our lunch. The private room turn out to be a secluded room.

Overall, the standard of the food here is very good, especially those from their daily ala-carte menu. Combining Sichuan and Cantonese cuisine is definitely a good idea. However standards must be maintain across the board. The dim sum on the other hand is below average. Based on the awards that they won, I can only presume that their normal service standards are so much better compare to today. If the opportunity arises, I don't mind giving this place a try again in the future. Cheers!!

On the whole, Si Chuan Dou Hua is just an above average restaurant really, at least for its dim sum. The taste of the dim sum is really expected with a few misses and you can find better ones elsewhere. However, given its good location and price, I still find it a place worth going as I think there may be no other dim sum restaurant that gives you a bird's eye view of marina bay. All the dim sum is priced at $5 each and below and I only spent about $45 per person. The service is very good too actually. And yeah it's interesting to see your tea masters serving your tea through a really long spout.

The restaurant is located on the 60th floor of UOB plaza and is crowded on weekends, so make your reservations early.
 We had the shark fin soup with crab meat, spicy chicken, braised sea cucumber, baked cod fish in miso paste, steam sliced garoupa, scallop with asparagus and they did not disappoint.  It was good.
 The sharks fin soup had generous chunks of crab meat. The steam sliced garoupa was served interestingly wrapped in pandan leaves in a bamboo steamer. The spicy chicken was really spicy so try it only if you like spicy food.
 For desert, we had mango pudding which came nicely presented in dry ice and hashima.
 Overall it was a satisfying dinner with a view on top of UOB plaza.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
