We had the Chee Cheong Fun with Foie Gras ($18), one of the most unique items on the menu. We like that our chee cheong fun was served in a dainty pau basket with the foie gras sauce on the side. The latter is more satisfyingly congealed than the array of sauces that is usually served with chee cheong fun. Those who do not like the 'livery' taste will be glad to know that the concoction is balanced out with a hint of kaya so that it's extra creamy, yet less cutting.
We also tried the Long Xiao Chao Fun (Lobster Fried Rice) ($22), generously populated with bits of Boston lobster, scallops, salted fish, bean sprouts and scallion. The dish has a nice wok hei flavour going for it although we did find the rice a little dry.
Overall, a great place to check out popular local dishes dolled up by extra premium ingredients. The price is a little high, but you get what you pay for.
We went for an ala-cart buffet at $40 nett. The food we order are all not really up to standard. The yong tau fu is sour. xO popia tasteless, kuek pie tee too. I would say only satay, char keow teow, n pula hitam are good. The rest really taste bad. If u really crave for all these food, I suggest u take a cab and buy from respective hawker , u still manage to get changes back for $80 for 2pax.
We visited Ujong in September before they changed the menu. We are glad that they did because we were terribly let down by the standard of food then. We ordered the Mee Pok Pasta and Nasi Lemak. Nevermind the price - they were each priced above $20. But the quality did not justify the price. The Mee Pok pasta was dry and tasteless, I would rather eat the original mee pok from the hawker centre. The Nasi Lemak was unappetising and did not look or taste fresh, the only saving grace was probably the mutton curry.
From now until 2 Dec, American Express card holders can enjoy a full meal at Ujong in Raffles Hotel for just $30++.
The meal starts with a popiah, a very thick crunchy bite. I liked that it did not have much liquid and was quite a light starter.
For the main course, one has a chance to either try the He Ye Fan, glutinous rice with roast pork, mushrooms, dried shrimp and Chinese sausage. I preferred the Char Kway Teow though, which had a good level of "wok hei" and a nice balance of oil used.
Dessert is the Ujong Mango Pudding, which had chopped fresh mangoes on top of a savory pudding.
Overall, expect to be filled up with well executed local fare.
