Essential Guide to Dumpling Deals!
Dragon Boat Festival is this coming Monday! Singapore is so blessed to have so many varieties to choose from! From gourmet ones like abalone and truffle to innovative ones like “bakkwa” and deep-fried dumplings, plant-based dumplings to our traditional yet nostalgic tasting ones! With choices comes decisions. Haha, here's how we come in to help you sort things out!
It doesn't have to be CNY to be indulging in your favourite bak kwa! Bee Cheng Hiang has given us a reason this Dragon Boat season by inserting some of our favourite snack into our dumplings! What's more, they have also top it up with a generous amount shiitake mushroom and chestnut! Click on our image link to find out more!
Another invention that has taken the internet by storm is the deep-fried dumpling by Toast Box! If you love your png-kueh pan-fried, this is the dumpling for you! It is exactly what it suggests — a double delight! It is also served with sweet spicy dark sauce (just like how you eat your png-kueh) and a side of pickled cucumbers to ensure that you maximize the utility of every bite into this gorgeous looking dumpling!
Fancy some seafood dumpling? Other than their traditional 'Hong Kong' Style Dumpling, Golden Peony's Executive Chef Ku crafted this star-studded combination of Singapore black pepper chili crab with succulent prawns and Bedford scallops — all in one dumpling! This combination is totally worth the money you are paying for such awesome ingredients used! They have other innovative dumpling as well, take for instance their Crispy Smoked Duck dumpling and meatless option of Egg Custard Sweeties dumpling.
Love traditional "kee chang" ? I remember dipping mine in sugar! Raffles Hotel is selling its very own Traditional Kee Chang with Raffles Kaya Jam! What a wonderful pairing! There are other skilfully handcrafted savoury rice dumplings by 藝 yì by Jereme Leung such as its Abalone & Jinhua Ham Dumpling using 12-head abalone, Japanese dried scallops and roast duck!
This is a dedication to all spicy food lover! This time round, we don't have to pair our dumpling with our sambal or chili, its infused inside the dumpling!!! Again, Chef Jereme Leung deserves a second mentioned here by coming out with a sambal version of dumpling marrying Malay and Japanese ingredients into a Chinese delicacy— Spiced Pork Belly dumpling with tender pork belly and Japanese dried scallops, accentuated with sambal and Sakura shrimps!
Next, is our favourite Mala !!! Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant handcrafted this Mala-inspired dumpling made out of Sichuan pepper chicken with lotus root, fungus, peanut and mushrooms.
