SzeChuan Kitchen (四川小厨) @ Fairmont Singapore

Walking around Raffles City, I was looking to use my newly acquired Feed@Raffles card… Basically, holder of Feed@Raffles card can split the bill by ½ in some of the restaurants within Raffles City.  SzeChuan Kitchen (四川小厨) is one of those restaurant.

We ordered our usual favourites which include a Roast Pork Rice, Minced Chicken Noodle, Xiao Long Bao, Chives Dumplings and Pu Erh Tea for two.

Soft peanuts for two ($3.00)

We dig into the soft peanuts. Not really a fan of them, but it was a competent appetiser… at least enough to whet up our appetite.

Chives Dumpling ($5.40)

Chives Dumpling ($5.40)

The chives dumplings were not that remarkable… like what you’d get from any other regular restaurant serving chives dumpling (but probably at ½ the price). I thought there were nothing really spectacular about it.

Xiao Long Bao ($6.20)

Now… the Xiao Long Bao tasted much better in comparison to their chives dumpling. The skin was not the best out there, but it did the job of holding the ‘soup’ in when I picked it up. I like to eat my Xiao long Bao whole… to have everything explode within the mouthful. The minced pork tasted excellent and the ‘soup’ was delicious! The imperfection of the skin was forgotten in that instance!

Minced Chicken Noodle ($8.00)

The Minced Chicken Noodle tasted wonderful! The noodle was the QQ type and the slightly spicy minced chicken and the sauce was actually excellent. However, the serve size was so pathetic it wasn’t funny!! Don’t let the close-up picture deceive you. The size of that bowl is no bigger than a typical small rice bowl!

Roast Pork Rice ($20.00)!!!

Now, the serve size of the Roast Pork Rice was of a more decent/regular portion, but the price was quite out of this world!! The Roast Pork was relatively nice… Crunchy, crispy skin with soft tender meat that is not at all fatty. Then again, for such a price, I’d expect nothing less. The rice was drizzled with a rather unique, yet nicely flavoured herbal concoction instead of the regular roast meat sauce.

All up, the food bill comes up to $48.20! Even thought the Feed@Raffles card took care of $24.10, the final bill came up to $28.37 (inclusive of 10% service charge and 7% GST). I guess its worth the experience. Value for money wise, I will not even consider this place without the Feed@Raffles card.

 

My Final Rating: 6.25/10

Address:
80 Bras Basah Road, 3F Fairmont Singapore, Singapore
