I had not tried Xin Cuisine, despite it being included in Amex Palate dining privilege for a while already. and though I did have intention to try out the food here using palate discounts, it was ANZ card marketing that got me to ask about this lobster & abalone 1 for 1 menu. On this occasion, we decided on the set menu, and it was a very good decision!  We started with a duo appetizer. There was a roast duck on a pan seared foie gras & cucumber (seems that Xin is famous for their suckling pig with foie gras), & a small saucer of thick spicy jellyfish. Both were very nice. The roast duck felt like a sous vide item, very tender & totally consistent. In terms of fine dining, it was no less fine than western fine dining. Next was chicken & mushrooms in a egg skin dumpling in pumpkin soup. This was very, very, very good. It was such a beauty to look at, and the soup was so very, very tasty, as good as Majestic’s 黄焖鱼翅 which was a lot better than Tunglok’s version. And the dumpling was so delicate to behold & so tasty to eat. Very few western fine dining restaurants here offered something this fine! The next item was the 5-heads abalone on a bed of spinach with sea cucumber in brown sauce (5-heads mean the size is 5 abalones to 1 kati though I am clueless whether it is the HK old kati=600g or the China kati=500g. In China it is now 1斤10 两 & 1 两= 50g)。 This was as good as Chinese braised abalones went in terms of 口感 bite/texture  & taste. and there was the 1/2 lobster, done with a very light cheese gratin. The lobster was smaller (about 350g). My wife preferred the 上汤局 style so cheese lobster not her favourite but I must say the taste was good & this was really very nicely done. This was a good illustration of quality of cooking – Chao Yue Xuan for example offered a larger 1/2 lobster in a good value set which we had recently, but the quality of cooking & presentation made a  huge difference between fine dining and not so fine dining.  and then we had the egg fried rice & spicy pork & this very plain fried rice was very very good – such crisp long grains & so fragrant it was as good as Imperial Treasure’s crab friend rice with dried scallops & egg white which was our perennial favourite – & so both of us who avoid carbo mostly had to evoke our “worthwhile carbo” philosophy and finished up al the rice. The spicy pork collar was very nice too. For dessert,we had the snow lotus in almond cream. Both of us were not very “dessert persons”, and cream 糊 was not my favourite & very less so for my wife. This though was only very slightly sweet & extremely smooth which was what defined a good 糊, be it almond or walnut (核桃) or combined (鸳鸯).

Great 3pax Family Dinner

See my full reviews & photos at = https://chefquak.com/2016/04/18/great-3pax-family-dinner-xin-cuisine-on-17apr2016/

had an excellent 3pax family dinner with wife & daughter at xin cuisine yesterday on 17.3.2016. ^^

restaurant is as usual quiet (7pm on a sunday).

there were actually more customers/tables this evening.

we were here last in oct2015. as you can see all the food item prices had gone up!
we had 1 order of lie tong 例汤.

at S$12 it’s a very small serving & expensive for a lie tong 例汤.

c/w 1/2 pot (3 to 4 bowls) at tunglok signature orchard parade for S$16.
the lie tong 例汤 was very good, very savoury & tasty with pork & vegetable stock, but of course, so is tunglok’s lie tong 例汤, just as tasty.

the tea smoked duck is very good here. price has gone up i guess recently from S$28 to S$32 for 1/2 duck.

it is different because of the excellent lingering tea flavour, say c/w the very good duck at canton paradise.

the roast london duck at tunglok though is very good, basically a different more fatty Irish duck.

i like both can’t decide which is better!

and the steamed vegetable 蒸梅菜,茄子,娃娃菜 is very good here, love it! absolutely! the sweet mei cai’s flavours very shoik la!

the lobster noodles (S$25 instead of S$22 previously) looked a bit mushy. it was, but just a bit. taste was good. lobster was just lobster, competent.

the big prawn crispy noodles likewise. crispy part still crispy, other part just a bit soft.

taste wise it was great!

the few times we took dessert.

the guilinggao 龟苓膏 was excellent here.

such nice, strong flavours…don’t get it in HK even sometimes…

the aloe vera jelly was more ordinary. nice dessert not great.

for 3pax, we had 35% discounts using the amex palate card, all-in S$101, pretty ok la.:-)

if it were 2pax would have been like S$80.

really quite good for these food at a good restaurant!

Really Nice Fine Chinese Dinner

wife & i went to xin cuisine for dinner on 1.10.2015.^^

though this is a palate restaurant, we had never use the amex palate privileges here before today.

the last time we had a superb fine dining here was 2.5yrs ago on 31.3.2013 for a ANZ set promotion.

in fact, soup looked quite pathetic but it tasted phenomenal!!!

i think this excellent lie tong 例汤 should be offered & served in a nice earthen pot like at tunglok or say lei gardens in hk instead of an individual per portion serving. at the very least, either if it is served per portion, it should be done in a nice bowl instead of a jack’s place kind of soup serving!

must try to do this lie tong at home.

actually the duck & veg were just as phenomenal!

this tea infused duck is the best roast duck i tried!! definitely better than the very nice duck at canton paradise

the tea fragrance was so lingering! amazing! restaurant manager said it was because the hk chef not only smoked but also marinated the duck in tea.

maybe i will try my tea infused duck again…

this preserved vege with chinese small cabbage & egg plant was super also.

the flavours of the preserved vegetables with the light soy sauce, not salty, was inviting.

a very fine vegetable dish. 

the big prawn crispy noodles was great, as expected.

crispy noodles & broth all good.

lobster noodles also good, but broth tasted perhaps just a wee bit not as good.

overall still a very good dish.

i tried my own king prawns braised noodles previously which tasted pretty good too.

this a really nice enjoyable dinner & with 50% for 2pax amex palate discounts, dinner was just S$69.

for me, the dishes were very fine, the soup was wonderful, & the duck quite divine, delicate & lingering tea flavours, and so was the veg. the prawn noodles & lobsters noodles were more ordinary dishes but very well executed, real good class.

service was ok, except at the beginning server took inordinately long time to respond to taking orders (even after acknowledging which already took long time) when there were just 3 tables including our own.
