Marina Mandarin Singapore’s Peach Blossoms rolls out 4 varieties of rice dumplings that flaunt the kitchen’s adeptness in both traditional and modern aspects.
Hong Kong Style Rice Dumpling with Pork Belly, Salted Egg Yolk, Conpoy, Mushrooms, Chestnuts, Lotus Seeds and Lentils ($20.80+ per 600g piece)
Weighing a hefty 600g, the Hong Kong Style Rice Dumpling that comes in the shape of an antique Chinese pillow is more than twice the size of a typical rice dumpling. This hearty dumpling is generously packed with pork belly, salted egg, conpoy, mushrooms, chestnuts, lotus seeds and lentils.
Vegetarian Rice Dumpling with Black Truffle and Assorted Mushrooms ($9.80 per 180g piece)
It must be quite an onerous task to produce a vegetarian rice dumpling such that even meat eaters would enjoy –Peach Blossoms did it. I could hardly resist its blatant scrumptiousness and earthy fragrance as I devoured this meatless option to the very last grain.
Traditional Pork Belly Rice Dumpling ($12.80+ per 300g piece)
The Traditional Pork Belly Rice Dumpling ($12.80+ per 300g piece) isn’t as spectacular compared to its counterparts, but decently tasty.
Nyonya Rice Dumpling ($12.80+ per 220g piece)
The Nyonya Rice Dumpling is a personal favourite out of the four flavours, ranking high on the taste index. The well-balanced filling consists of pork belly and sweetened winter melon that are chopped finely for effortless chewing.
For better value and more variety, go for the set comprising all four flavours, priced at $50.80+.
Rice dumplings are available during lunch, dinner and for takeaway at Peach Blossoms from 12 May to 2 June 2014. Advanced order of three working days is required. For enquiries or orders, guests can call or email .
