During our our latest trip to Singapore, we met up with my parents for dinner and to do my dad a favour -- to help eat up SGD 200 worth of food. :D
Dad's dining voucher could be used at any outlet in Resorts World Sentosa, but we finally decided on Chinese food and chose the swanky looking Feng Shui Inn in Crockfords Tower.
The whole thing had a very exclusive feel to me, because it's on the upper floor from the casino, away from the hustle and bustle, lights and chimes. Also because the entrance itself looked like we were entering a VIP-only den. The interior was nice though, with plush carpets and comfy chairs. I thought it a bit strange that the TVs were playing sports though?
The menu is quite extensive, as at most reputable Chinese restaurants, so we relied heavily on the recommendations of the captain.
One of his first recommendations was the Braised Pork with Chef's Special Sauce (SG$ 32), a serving of four pork ribs, swimming in a pool of rich sauce.
This, I think, was my favourite dish of the night. The pork flesh was so tender, and almost falls off the bone with just a gentle prod. They brought out forks and knives for this dish, but I don't really think the knife was very necessary in the end! The pork also absorbed great flavour from the "special sauce" -- a thick moreish tangy, honeyed sauce. We even ate it with rice and mopped it all up with the mantou (deep-fried buns).
Part of me greedily wishes we had more than one each, but in any case, I was completely stuffed so I couldn't have eaten any more! Meh.
Adam picked the Roasted "Pi Pa" Duck (SG$ 39 for half duck), which came out to be very juicy. The skin of the duck was crispy with just the perfect ratio of fat which made this a very enjoyable dish.
We also had the Stir-fried Prawns with Salted Egg Yolk (SG$ 32), a good choice in our opinion. The prawns were very fresh and plump, and smothered with sinful salted egg yolk. Possibly a bit overpriced for the small serving, so we were very thankful indeed for those vouchers!
The captain may have been getting a bit appalled with our meat orders and suggested we took a medium serving of vegetables (we ordered small servings for all the dishes above). In came the Sauteed Hong Kong Kailan with Chinese Rice Wine (SG$ 28), a very big dish of leafy greens in comparison our other small dishes! This simple preparation of the kailan was new to us but we enjoyed it; extremely crunchy stalks with a hint of rice wine in each bite. It was far too much though, stick with small if you only have four people like we did.
We thought food Feng Shui Inn was very good, and would say it's a recommended location for premium Chinese food in the Sentosa vicinity. Maybe you can splurge here if you've made a quick buck at the casino! We spotted some other tables having really huge crabs... must have been made quite a winning, that table. :)
Of course, if you happen to be in Singapore over this Chinese New Year in 2014 and have some spare SGD to spend, Feng Shui Inn has 8-course CNY spreads available, starting from SGD 1118++ for a table of 6 pax to SGD 1688++ for a table of 10. Call the number below for more information.
