Spice Marinated Slow-Baked Duck Leg ($24.80)
Ramada and Days Hotels Singapore at Zhongshan Park launches exciting new items in both the a la carte menu and buffet spread this August in conjunction with Singapore’s 49th birthday. Celebrating the flavours that Singaporeans grew up with, Flavours at Zhongshan Park brings across local favourites with a western spin.
Prawn Laksa Risotto with Coconut Cream ($18.80)
The Prawn Laksa Risotto is a standout. Regular cream is replaced with Asian ingredients such as laksa paste and coconut cream. Accompanying the invigorated grains are succulent scallops, squids and prawns.
Beer Marinated Crispy Pork Belly with Mashed Potato ($20.80)
Another drool-inducing dish is the Beer Marinated Crispy Pork Belly with Mashed Potato, which takes a lengthy 2 days to complete the cooking process. Thick chunks of pork belly are first marinated for 24 hours, before cooking it (sous-vide) for another 24 hours to lock in the flavour and moisture. Baking it during the final stage yields a crackling crisp skin that contrasts beautifully with the moist and tender meat.
Deep Fried Otak with Curry Peanut Mayo ($16.80)
The groundbreaking Deep Fried Otak with Curry Peanut Mayo – or in simple terms the Asian-style Fish & Chips – gives Asians another occasion to extol the virtues of the local favourite Otak-Otak (made of fish meat, fish paste and spices typically wrapped in banana leaves).
Unassumingly bearing resemblance to an ordinary serving of Fish & Chips, the golden crust reveals a thick and juicy slab of housemade Otak Otak. Served alongside are curry spiced flat fries and housemade dip made of mayonnaise, peanut butter and curry powder. Ingenious.
Pandan Crepe with Mascarpone and Cempedak ($12.80)
The new items on the a la carte menu will be available from 11 August 2014.
Adding to the buffet spread at Flavours At Zhongshan Park is the ‘Ah Hood Burger Stall’, a localised DIY burger station where guests have the freedom of creating their own burger with a wide selection of local fillings such as Satay Chicken, Minced Char Siew, Chicken Floss, Hae Bee Hiam (Dried Shrimp Chilli), Otak Otak, Mince Pork Roll, Curry Potato and Minced Pork with Spicy Bean Sauce.
The salami is my second favourite after the slow-braised pork belly. You’ll be able to find similarities in terms of taste and texture with luncheon meat.
The burger bun comes in the form of the Steamed Leaf Bun that Asians are familiar with.
Accompaniments at the station include sambal chilli, coleslaw, lettuce, onions and tomatoes.
The ‘Ah Hood Burger Stall’ is available during the ‘Afternoons with Bibik’ weekend high-tea buffet, from 9th August 2014, 1pm to 5pm every Saturday, Sunday and public holiday, priced at $32++ per adult and $16++ per child (aged 4-12).
