Lotus Kitchen is opened by the brainchild behind the growing Greendot chain of restaurants.

If you love what you had so far at Greendot, you will be pleased to know that Lotus Kitchen is now serving a wider variety, and even better flavours. Try from Dry Laksa to the Crispy Summer Wrap (alike to Peking Duck), Satay Skewers to the Braised mushrooms in hotstone which is my personal favourite. Especially the lion mane mushroom that has been used in their famous rendang, every mouth is bursting with a good rendition of spice and sweetness. If I don't tell you they're vegetarian, you'd probably never going to find out. 😼

Roasted pork S$18

Umm, so this was $2/piece.

Whoa

The [H6] Stir-fried Prawn with Salted Egg Yolk 金沙虾球 / 大えびのサクサク塩卵炒め ($36++) is possibly the best I've ever had! Succulent & crunchy, with the ubiquitous SEY sauce that everyone either loves or is sick of. I LOVED this; the flavour wasn't too overpowering.

Also, even though this was labelled with 1 chilli (symbolizes that it's 小辣 Mildly spicy), I didn't find it spicy at all.

Spicy & Sweaty. Pair It With Rice!

Of course I had to try the signature dish: [O1] Chen’s Mapo Tofu 陳麻婆豆腐 / 四川飯店伝統のマーボードーフ ($24++/portion).

You definitely need to pair this with a bowl of fragrant steamed Hokkaido white rice 🍚 to enjoy it, because it is too salty to eat on its own (trust me). I don't eat spicy food often - I was sweating by the end of this! But glad that I tried this as it is not something I eat often, so I'd want nothing but the best.

Everything It Should Be

Started off our meal with a bowl of [C3] Sichuan Hot & Sour Soup with Seafood 海鮮酸辣汤 / 海鮮入りスーラータン ($14++).

This was a good balance of 小辣 (mildly spicy) & sour. The thick soup was kept warm by the tealight candle at the bottom, which is great.

Dim Sum Combination Platter.

This platter is masterfully crafted to wow your senses. I was first excited by the presentation, then I was intrigued by each piece on this platter as I savored them from left to right: steamed cuttlefish dumpling with XO sauce, steamed scallop dumpling with black truffles mushroom, baked custard puff, and lastly deep fried fresh prawn spring roll with mango.
🔸
That black swan which caught everybody's eye was the baked custard puff. Despite holding its shape well, it's actually very soft - it crumbles under the chopstick as you pick it up. That's why i thought the dim sum here are masterfully crafted.

The Western beef short ribs are infused with assorted Chinese spices (star anise, cinnamon, bay leaf, bean sauce and fermented bean curd sauce) and slow cooked for 4 hours.

The Chinese spices not only help to cover the beef smell and also add a more distinct flavour to the tender beef 😋

Revisiting An Old Favourite Chinese Restaurant

I find that it pays to return to places you've neglected because you'll be reminded why you used to love dining there in the first place. It was the case for me with Si Chuan Dou Hua at ParkRoyal Hotel Beach Road.
My impromptu decision to have dinner there led to a really pleasant meal. Nearly everything we had was tasty, and in terms of portion size, even the smallest one which was what I got for each dish, was big enough to feed 3 to 4 pax. These are what I'd recommend:

1) Sliced Pig's Ears in Sichuan Pepper Sauce ($14++) - It was potently spicy with that addictive numbing "ma la" kick.

2) Stirfried Shredded Potatoes and Green Chilli ($16++) - If you don't mind loading up on carbs, this is very appetising as there is a tinge of vinegar used in the cooking of the firm strips of potato.

3) Steamed Beancurd and Egg White with Minced Chicken ($18++) - Their tofu is made in-house and is wonderfully soft and silky.

4) Diced Beef in Black Pepper Sauce ($24++) - A classic that is executed well with very tender cubes of beef.

Service at this restaurant was also above average, which added to the positive experience.

Dim Sum

Dim sum ala carte @ 50% off on Mondays to Thursdays (30% off on Fridays to Sundays)!

Didn't carry much expectations when we came for the dimsum cos we were plainly hungry and had huge huge cravings for dimsum! (We actually skipped breakfast for this.)

There were a couple of interesting dishes which you can't find elsewhere - fried codfish with black pepper sauce, fried milk curd with almonds, fried banana prawn rolls, steamed yam cake with scallops. All these didn't disappoint, so it's a must try!

P.S. the prawns in the har gow and banana prawn rolls were huge and crunchy!
You can also taste the mushroom and prawn bits distinctively in the Siew mai.

红油抄手 (Hong You Chao Shou) Sze Chuan Chili Dumplings [$4.50]

Don’t think I’ve posted about this before but these handmade dumplings are the best I’ve had anywhere in SG, and yes, they are definitely comparable to those you find in restaurants! Handmade daily, these wantons have the most silky smooth skins with a well seasoned pork filling. The best part of it all though, is that SPICY SAUCE, a spot on balance of vinegar and heat, making it all soooooo appetising! Have been having these for the longest time ever and the quality has never been compromised. #BurppleMajulahMakan
