Cherry Garden in Mandarin Oriental Singapore offers a quiet and relaxing environment to enjoy Cantonese cuisine and dim sum. Our brunch fare at this Chinese restaurant came with delicate morsels of steamed and deep-fried dim sum.
We savoured the deep-fried escargot dumpling, spicy beef dumpling, baby abalone siew mai, and prawn mango bean curd roll, along with a noodle dish and steamed glutionus rice.
Dim sum brunch continues with two interesting desserts – light and refreshing cherries in nui er hong and kuei hua chen wine cocktail jelly, served with lychee sorbet. Another creamy dessert is the chilled cream of avocado with walnut ice cream.
As it was the mooncake festival, we got ourselves a box of petite snow skin mooncake. The box of eight with lychee martini chocolate truffle is priced at SGD65. Definitely worth trying out the mooncakes…
