The Ramada and Days Hotels Singapore is doing its bit to commemorate our Nation’s 49th Birthday.
From 11 August 2014 onwards, Flavours At Zhongshan Park is adding 26 more items on their a la carte menu with an increased selection of appetizers, soups, western cuisine, Asian and Nonya specialties and a new “Twist of Flavours” section featuring seven creative dishes fusing oriental and western cooking methods and ingredients.
The traditional Italian risotto is given a local lift in this dish as the traditional creamy base is replaced with Asian ingredients such as laksa paste and coconut paste, and accompanied with fresh seafood such as scallops, squids and prawns.
The cooking process of this delightful local inspired dish is a lengthy 2 days, first by marinating the thick slice of pork belly for 24 hours then cooking it in sous-vide for another 24 hours to lock in the flavour and moisture before baking. The resulting dish is a fork tender pork belly with crispy skin at the top.
The duck leg is marinated with a special blend of spices created by the Chefs after much experimenting. Cooked sous-vide for 24 hours, the duck leg is then pan-fried till the skin is crispy.
This Asian style fish ‘n’ chips comprises homemade Otak Otak fried in batter and served with curry spiced flat fries and a homemade dip made of mayonnaise with peanut butter and curry powder, adding a sweet and savory hint to the palate.
The crepe batter is mixed with freshly squeezed pandan juice, giving it a subtle pandan scent. Inside the crepe is a filling of mascarpone cheese and Cempedak puree, topped with coconut foam and Gula Melaka (palm sugar) syrup. The complementing blend of aromatic Asian flavours makes this dessert a must-try.
The other two new Twist of Flavours dishes that were not featured here, the Deep-Fried Lemongrass Flavoured Crab Cake with Avocado and Pineapple Salsa – ($13.80), and the Pig’s Trotter Salad with Crispy Shallot and Sambal Belacan – ($12.80).
A local D.I.Y. burger station, ‘Ah Hood Burger Stall’ is available at Flavours At Zhongshan Park during its ‘Afternoons with Bibik’ weekend high-tea buffets, and a ‘Singapura Pasta’ section during weekend buffet brunch in the recently Halal-certified 21 on Rajah.
Additionally, due to popular demand, both Flavours at Zhongshan Park and 21 on Rajah will be extending its Sunday buffets, ‘Afternoons with Bibiks’ and Sunday Brunch respectively, to Saturdays and public holidays as well.
Sweet selections include Pulut Hitam with Longan (Black Glutinous Rice Porridge), Durian Pengat, Chocolate Pralines, Pandan-Flavoured Chocolate Fondue with You Tiao (Chinese crullers) and assorted ice-cream popsicles.
