Xin Cuisine @ Holiday Inn Atrium – Go for their Roasted Duck!
Xin Cuisine at Holiday Inn Atrium was under my radar for the longest time. Until recently, I have finally managed to try it when I was invited for lunch. Located along the Singapore River, Xin Cuisine Chinese Restaurant boasts an extensive menu of traditional Cantonese dishes, expertly prepared by a team of dedicated and professional chefs.
We tucked into the splendid selection of authentic Chinese-Cantonese dishes like roasted duck, fried brown rice, lamp chops and more. To begin, I had a mini dim sum feast. It was nothing fanciful, just good classic offerings like har gau, siew mai, xiao long bao etc, most of them reasonably priced at S$4.50 per basket.
Xin’s Roasted Duck (half portion $28, whole duck $52) with Tea Leaves is definitely a must-try in the menu. The bird boasts a crisp skin, with tender and juicy meat which has a robust and smoky flavour that I seldom find in other ducks I have eaten here. And it is not at all gamey.
Lamb is not a common dish to serve in a Chinese restaurant. I was surprised to see a beautiful plate of Pan-fried Lamb Chop ($15, picture is a smaller portion) – a little fatty, without too gamey a flavour. It was drizzled with pommery mustard sauce and served with three mushrooms.
The healthy Fried Fragrant Brown Rice served in stone casserole was a great end to the meal. It was a heaps of earthy goodness in the casserole with roasted pork, diced shrimp, dried scallop, peanut and raisin. Good for sharing, and it comes in three sizes – S$20 for the small, S$30 for the medium, and S$40 for the large.
