Mandarin Oriental Singapore presents a selection of gourmet dumplings to mark a fantastic Dragon Boat Festival celebration at Cherry Garden this year.
Indulge in the Black Garlic Glutinous Rice Dumpling 黑蒜豚肉竹碳粽 ($18 per piece), consisting glutinous rice, fragrant black garlic, sea whelk, preserved vegetables, succulent kurobuta pork belly and bamboo charcoal powder. Not only does the bamboo charcoal powder lend a unique grey hue to the dumpling, it also complements the fragrant rice infused with the salty and sweet notes of black garlic and minced pork belly.
Next, savour the Red Yeast Glutinous Rice Dumpling 干贝红糟鸡粽 ($16 per piece), an appealing combination of glutinous rice, conpoy, and red yeast minced chicken. The captivating red dumpling pairs perfectly with the light aromatic notes of fermented rice wine from the minced chicken, a sure hit amongst diners.
The signature classic Golden Pearl Dumpling 怀旧鲍鱼裹蒸粽 精装版 ($34 per piece) remains a top pick, as it is packed with an extravagant filling of premium ingredients. The glutinous rice captures the intense flavours of the slow-braised abalone, pork belly, mung beans, mushrooms, chestnuts, salted egg yolk and lotus seeds, all beautifully wrapped in a plump parcel.
Those looking for the ideal gift can look forward to Cherry Garden’s Dragon Boat Festival Hamper 樱桃端午节礼蓝 ($108) offering five delicious rice dumpling creations of assorted flavours, accompanied with exquisite Chinese tea.
The Cherry Garden Gourmet Dumplings are available for in-house dining and takeaway orders, from 30 May to 9 June 2016. For reservations or enquiries, please email email@example.com or call Cherry Garden at 6885 3500.
