Indulge in Modern Chinese Cuisine Lunch Sets at VLV Singapore

VLV Singapore situated in the heart of Clarke Quay is a one-stop lifestyle destination combining luxury dining, entertainment and nightlife concepts. The heritage building is divided into four zones: VLV Restaurant, Courtyard, Club Lounge and Riverside Dining.

Taking up the space on the second level, the restaurant serves up modern-Chinese food and has recently launched three new lunch sets – ‘Creations’ Lunch Set, ‘Tasting’ Lunch Set and ‘Signatures’ Lunch Set.

‘Creations’ Lunch Set

Priced at $48++ per person (minimum 2 persons), the ‘Creations’ Lunch Set features a trio of Chef Martin’s signature dim sum, a soup, a fish dish, a noodle dish and a dessert. Both the Har Gao (Prawn Dumpling) and Chilli Crab Bun are pretty average and nothing to shout about. The chilli crab filling lack punch and I would prefer the buns to be deep-fried than steamed.

 ‘Tasting’ Lunch Set

If you go in a group of 4, I would recommend the ‘Tasting’ Lunch Set ($98++ for 4 persons, maximum 2 sets per group) as it is more affordable and you can get to try a wider selection of dishes.

The Pan-fried Carrot Cake is pretty average as well.

P1250503

Nutritious Herbal Soup – Fresh sea prawns in piping-hot herbal soup. I finished every drop of the soup that was served to me.

P1250517

Sweet & Sour Chilean Seabass – A pretty average dish.

P1250530

Crispy Roasted Chicken – My favourite dish from the ‘Tasting’ Lunch Set. Succulent roasted chicken with perfectly crispy skin; studded with nutty sesame seeds.

P1250532

Poached Hong Kong Choy Sum – Loving the bright-green, crunchy choy sum!

P1250549

Braised Noodles with Enoki Mushroom and Beansprouts – The noodles though flavourful is slightly on the oily side.

‘Signatures’ Lunch Set

Out of the three lunch sets, I prefer the ‘Signatures’ Lunch Set ($138++ for 4 persons, maximum 2 sets per group) most. The spread is more to my liking and this set menu is worth every penny compared to the other two lunch sets.

P1250453

Aburi Kagoshima Kurobuta Roll – Crunchy cucumber wrapped in thinly-sliced Aburi Kagoshima Kurobuta with a slightly spicy sauce.

P1250457

Calamari Rings – Crispy and well-seasoned calamari rings. Oh-so-addictive!

P1250504

Crab Meat Spinach Soup – The soup is a little too starchy for my liking.

P1250511

Coral Trout Head & Belly – The fish is steamed with black garlic and black bean.

P1250519

Claypot Prawns with Ginger, Scallion and Dried Chilli – This dish comes with flavourful, springy glass noodles.

P1250533

Roasted Crispy Duck – Tender and juicy duck with crispy skin.

P1250545

Kimchi Seafood Fried Rice – Served with a sous vide egg, this dish is good for people who love their carbs. Break the egg and mix thoroughly with the rice before eating as it adds creaminess to the rice.

P1250569

Roselle Flower Osmanthus Jelly – A light and refreshing dessert to cap off your lunch.

The three new lunch sets are available at VLV on weekdays, 12pm to 3pm. For more information about VLV’s Lunch Sets, click here.

A la Carte Menu

Other than the three new lunch sets, a la carte menu is also available.

P1250449

Kagoshima Kurobuta Char Siew ($32) – One of the signature dishes at VLV. Each slice of char siew had a layer of fat sandwiched between succulent meat with charred, caramelized exterior. Served with Taiwanese fermented black beans at the side.

P1250469

Crispy Seafood Rice Roll ($8.80) – At first glance, I thought it is zha leung (dough fritters wrapped in rice rolls) but it is not. Seafood in a light, crispy pastry wrapped with thin rice rolls. The sauce goes well with the seafood rice roll. A must order if you are here.

The champagne is light and easy on the palate. Not part of the lunch sets but weekend dim sum brunch with free flow drinks at $138++ per person. More information here.
