SINGAPORE (Aug 7): From now till Sept 30, 2019, Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant at PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road will be debuting its “Pi Pa” Roast Suckling Pig.
This year, executive Cantonese chef Leung Wing Chung, who hails from Hong Kong, will be serving up the suckling pig in three bold marinade flavours – traditional, black pepper and fermented red bean curd.
The traditional flavour is served with six delectable sauces such as Homemade “Sa Cha” Sauce with Sesame and Matsuke Mushroom Dip.
The Black Pepper marinated suckling pig gives every crispy bite an extra robust peppery aroma.
Best without any other dipping, the Fermented Red Bean Curd marinated suckling pig gave the pork a tangy and sweet flavour.
It doesn’t matter which flavour you order, they’re all bound to impress. That is because chef Leung has made sure to roast each and every pig by hand. We were told that he sits by the oven and personally holds a skewer with a three to four kilogram pig, to ensure that the pig is roasted to perfection and according to his own high standards.
Regardless of the flavour, each “Pi Pa” Roast Suckling Pig had amazing taste and a brilliant crispy texture. The skin is then served with pancakes, while the meat is cooked in separate main dishes.
You may opt to order it a la carte at $138 for half a pig and $228 for a whole pig; or go ahead and order up a feast with “A Royal Roast Set Menus” at $488 for six persons and $688 for ten persons.
Apart from your choice of “Pi Pa” Roast Suckling Pig, the “A Royal Roast” set menus include some of chef Leung’s other famous dishes. I was told that his soup dishes were amazing, which was not surprising since soup is a staple dish in Cantonese cuisine.
True enough, the Black Chicken Soup with Fish Maw and Siberian Solomon’s Seal that comes with the set menu, was soothing and very warming. Rich in Chinese herbs and nutrients, I was also told this soup was good for the skin.
Found in the set menu: Stir-fried Sri-Lanka Crab with Signature Soya Bean Crumbs in Osmanthus Sauce; Flatfish Fillet with Fresh Fruit in Passion Fruit Sauce; Sliced Lotus coated with Minced Fish paired with Stir-fried Broccoli; Stir-fried Angel Hair Noodles with Prawns in Truffle Sauce; Deep-fried Peanut Cake in “Teochew” Style; and Homemade Soya Bean and Homemade Fine Bean Curd with Wolfberries.
If you’re feeling fancy and looking to impress, there’s another “A Royal Roast” set menu featuring more premium items going at $988 for ten persons. This particular set menu also comes with a complimentary bottle of house red wine worth $58.
