Peach Garden @ Thomson Plaza – Weekend Dim Sum Buffet is Back, it’s so Incredibly Affordable!
One thing that Singaporeans can’t get enough of is dim sum. Just thinking about those steamy baskets of goodness makes me drool. A good dim sum meal doesn’t always come cheap, BUT Peach Garden’s incredible Weekend Dim Sum Buffet is back! Only available at the Thomson Plaza outlet, the dim sum buffet features a good range of dim sum and local dishes. Can you guess how much the buffet is? It’s only $23.80++!
Dim Sums Served in Traditional Pushcarts
The highlight of this buffet is definitely the traditional dim sum served from traditional Hong Kong pushcarts. The servers will go around the tables, and you can pick your favourite dim sum.
Served piping hot, the usual Har Gau (steamed prawn dumpling), Siu Mai (pork & shrimp dumpling), braised chicken feet in black bean sauce, steamed glutinous rice in lotus leaf, are just a few of the delicious offerings. I like the Siu Mai as it is plump and firm with small pieces of shrimp. My friends and I also enjoyed the Sichuan Spicy Wonton in Red Oil. The spicy and aromatic red sauce coated the tender prawn and meat dumplings beautifully, making it a very indulgent treat.
Fried dim sum, we will never forget about you. We tried the fried beancurd skin rolls, yam puff with char siew, fried prawn dumpling and fried beancurd roll with shrimp and mango. The fried beancurd roll with shrimp and mango was really scrumptious. The savouriness of the shrimp was complemented by the sweetness of the mangoes. With a rich taro fragrance, the yam puff boasts a nice crispy skin and a creamy yam filling. Sauces including mayonnaise and sweet chili sauce were provided as dips for the fried dim sums. Guys, please pace yourself as there’s more to come!
Go crazy with favourite local dishes
I have been a supporter of Peach Garden dim sum buffet for years. Some new dishes this time round include Chicken Satay and Rojak. Don’t forget to complete your dim sum spread with other local dishes such as Rojak, Satay, Vinegar Pork Knuckles, Drunken Prawn, Pork Chop with Sweet and Sour Sauce, Braised Assorted Vegetables with Preserved Bean Paste, Double-boiled Golden Melon Soup with Spare Ribs and Deep-fried Fish Fillet with Nyonya Style.
I really enjoyed the pig trotters as they are soft and tender after sitting in an acidic black vinegar stew for hours. Another dish that you’ll absolutely love is the prawns in a fragrant bowl of wine and Chinese herbs. The juicy fresh prawns soaked up the rich aroma of the herbal broth wonderfully.
We had a warm bowl of century egg porridge, and carrot cake that’s been pan-fried on a hot plate at the live station. Crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, the carrot cake was firm and moist and a joy to tuck into.
LIVE STATION Prawn Mee
Are you full already?! Well, there’s more! Next up is the local prawn mee soup! Upon request, a staff will prepare a bowl of noodles for you. The prawns were fresh and sweet and were accompanied by a light briny broth which had just a hint of sweetness. Each bowl came with a dash of shallot oil, egg, pork slices and prawns. Though simple, the prawn noodles were really yummy.
Wait for the SURPRISE dessert
Just when you thought that you won’t have anymore space in your stomach for desserts, just a look at the dessert spread will “activate” your “second stomach”! Gula Melaka Kaya Cake, Ubi Talam Petite and Bobo Cha Cha are just some of the local flavours in the buffet line. The mini egg tarts were wiped clean within the first 15 minutes! And wow, a chocolate fondue with fruits? I’m sold.
It’s time for some ice cream biscuits! They are only available halfway through when the server rings a bell. Be quick because everyone will start to crowd around him. There were two different ice cream flavours available on that day – cookies & cream and milk tea. This is quite a sight, and very nostalgic as well!
To be honest, I have only praises for Peach Garden @ Thomson Plaza’s dim sum buffet. This is a great restaurant that serves solid and affordable dim sum.
Besides the really attractive pricing, here’s another sweet deal for you: 1 ADULT DINES FREE WITH 3 PAYING ADULTS! So you can come as a family of 4 but only pay for 3 people leh. Worth it? Of course! Book early because there is only one seating. The place fills up extremely quickly.
