Fairmont Szechuan Court Supersized Dumplings!
It's "bak chang" season again! The fifth day of the fifth lunar month is the time when families get together to enjoy rice dumplings. Family togetherness is such a blessing. I wish joy upon all families during this time, and feasting fun.
From 8 to 23 June 2012, Master Chef Sebastian Goh of Fairmont Singapore's Szechuan Court will offer four innovative ‘supersized’ dumplings weighing in at 1kg each! These will certainly be the dining centrepiece.
Szechuan Court’s famous “Gongbao” Chicken Dumpling ($38++ each, shown above) makes a comeback with diced marinated chicken thigh meat stir-fried with chilli peppers, crunchy roasted peanuts and Szechuan peppercorns. The heat is mild at first but later on builds up into a tummy-warming fire. The peanuts somehow make it taste a little like satay. We liked that there was more filling than glutinous rice in this bundle.
The Hong Kong style Dumpling ($48++ each) features tender roasted pork belly, roasted duck, stewed abalone, chestnuts and dried shrimps. It's reaaally filling. I think we ate this over several meals!
There are two other flavours - a healthy Organic Brown Rice Vegetarian Dumpling ($38++ each) and Stewed Pork Trotter Dumpling ($48++ each) with trotters slow-cooked and stewed with Chinese herbs. Mmmh!
