Singapore’s Largest Pen Cai at Cherry Garden

Chinese New Year 2016 - Cherry Garden Mandarin Oriental Singapore - Luxurious Pen Cai 2

Measuring up to 45cm in diameter and weighing in at more than 25kg, Cherry Garden‘s astounding and prodigious Luxurious Pen Cai, also the largest in Singapore, is perfect if you’re looking to indulge in the ultimate Chinese New Year Feast.

Priced at $368 for 6 persons—though I feel there’s more than enough to feed 8—the brimming pot of treasures comes filled with 17 premium ingredients, such as 4-head abalone, lobster, roasted pork belly, dried oyster roll and convoy. This is available on Cherry Garden’s Success set menu (min 6 pax, $138 per pax, or $148 per pax with Premium Hamachi Yusheng).

Also noteworthy is the Prosperity Yusheng ($78 small, $117 medium, $156 large, available for both takeaway and dine-in)—a creation made light, almost fluffy, with loads of crisp, fried vermicelli—tossed with smoked salmon, crispy fish skin, an olive oil-spring onion mix and a full-flavoured plum sauce that elevates the dish with a pleasant touch of acidity.

If you are a fan of pineapple tarts, go for their finessed Blossom Pineapple Sable ($48, box of 9-pieces). The pastry is well-executed and delightfully light, and the filling is tasty without being overly sweet.

Always having weird urges to take pictures of other diners’ food, he is used to being forcefully restrained by dining companions, but has yet to have security called on him. Jasper is open to all sorts of cuisines and dishes, and is always on the lookout for a good meal or deal. To him, an ideal restaurant is one that combines good food, friendly service and a warm ambience. "Food is all about the dining experience."
