Peach Garden Weekend Dim Sum Buffet is back – 1 Dines FREE with every 3 Paying Adults!
Siew mai, har gao, lo bo gao… everyone loves dim sum. And it’s best if it’s FREE FLOW!
Back by popular demand, the Weekend High Tea Dim Sum Buffet at Peach Garden at Thomson Plaza brings you dim sum on pushcarts and a surprising variety of local delights every weekend! Here’s the deal – 1 Dines Free with 3 paying adults!
Peach Garden is one of the very few places that still wheels around dim sum on old-fashioned push carts. The team of chefs have mastered the classics – har gao with tidy pleats and siew mai with chunky prawn bits, freshly steamed fluffy char siew bao and silky smooth cheong fun drenched in superior soy sauce. You grab what you can, fastest hands first!
What’s good? The har gao and siew mai hit the right spot, even though I usually prefer a thinner skin. The dense radish cakes are combined with dried shrimp, mushrooms and Chinese sausage, and pan-fried on the spot. The piping hot pork porridge was comforting and I couldn’t resist going for a second serving!
I love their egg tarts too. They are crisp and light. The smooth and eggy custard isn’t too sweet, and complements the deep flavours of the crust well.
Times like this, I feel like I am on a scavenger hunt as I am always on the lookout for some of my favourites from the dim sum cart. The spring rolls were fresh out of the wok and very crispy. The Fried Crispy Mango with Prawn Roll was unique, a balance between sweet and savoury flavours. We also loved the steamed glutinous rice in lotus leaf, which was soft and fluffy.
There are other more substantial dishes in the buffet too. Think pig trotters with vinegar, sushi, sashimi, fried Hong Kong noodles and drunken prawns. My favourite is the pig trotters that have been meticulously cooked with black vinegar. That chunk of trotter in the bowl has got very little meat and fat, but plenty of collagen. I love that sharp acidic taste from the vinegar.
Half way through the service, a waiter will ring a bell and everyone will start queuing for ice cream biscuits! This is quite a sight, and very nostalgic as well! Nothing says desserts like ice cream. Fruits, traditional desserts and chocolate fondue are available as well.
Much of what we get at Peach Garden is more than decent. Especially for the price that we are paying, we are getting a lot more than what we expect. Book early because there is only one seating. The place fills up extremely quickly.
Price: Adult $23.80++ per pax | Child $16.80++ per pax
