Peach Blossoms, Marina Mandarin Singapore
Here's a Cantonese place on the fifth floor of the Marina Mandarin hotel (6845-1111) with a very modern/chichi twist, as seen in the dessert trio in the photo. We went through a Chinese banquet tonight, some of which was delightfully impressive, including the very light "Deep Fried Crispy Chicken Skin Coated with Prawn Paste," as well as a "Crispy Fried Green Apple Truffle Coated with Salted Egg Yolk" in the dessert trio that surprised me with its eruption of green lava inside.
Yet other things were a bit of a bore, such as the standard fare ee-fu noodles that closed the meal or even the soggy string beans and pork. And while I'm not such a huge fan of big Cantonese banquets that would make me run back here at the next opportunity, the service was so professionally attentive tonight that I would easily recommend it for a small private function.
Digested at 9:40 PM
