How did you celebrate Mother's day and the subsequent Father's day this year? My family usually picks a restaurant for a simple dinner and that more or less wraps up our celebration for such special occasions. That said, I was more than excited to try out the Chinese cuisine here at 金山樓 (Jin Shan @ Marina Bay Sands), courtesy to HGW's invite. 



We had a 7-course meal dinner and here is the menu:

金山特色三拼
Jin Shan Special Combination
(烧肉,烧鸭,油鸡)

烧鸭, Roasted Duck 
 My personal favourite among the three different meat was the roasted duck. Most of the duck meat has been deboned, well if not, the tender meat still falls off the bone at a mere prod of your fork. Apart from the tender juicy meat, the skin has been roasted to an extremely crispy thin layer with a slightly sweet taste to finish it. 


油鸡, Cold Chicken 
The Cold Chicken on the other hand was not a strong competitor. As much as I enjoy the not-too-oily chicken skin, the meat itself was a tad dry. 

烧肉, Roasted Pork
An absolutely no-frills meat among the three thanks to the boneless roasted pork served in cube size, I must say I am caught in a dilemma to decide if the roasted duck or this was my favourite. The pork pieces has a roasted top layer covering the chewy pork meat, with very minimal fats as seen in the photo. What surprises me was that it tasted really well by dabbing it with the wasabi, thoughtfully presented at the side in small tiny portions. 


金盅海鮮湯
Seafood Soup Served in Mini Pumpkin
 The Seafood Soup served in Mini Pumpkin was a bowl packed lusciously with scallops and prawn bits in the sweetest seafood broth. Finish off the soup with some pumpkin flesh as you conveniently scrape off the flesh along the edge of the pumpkin.

咸蛋明虾球
Golden Sands Fresh Prawn with Salted Egg 
The Golden Sands Fresh Prawn with Salted egg not only looked incredibly tempting, it also gave out a strong salted egg aroma when served. The salted egg sauce was unfortunately a little too grainy, which ended up making me cough a little as the spices caught in between my throat. Nonetheless, the sauce was great for its strong salted egg taste. However, the large prawn, although really juicy and fresh, seems to be a little bland on the inside.

鲨鱼骨浸苋菜
Poached "Xian Cai" Served in Cartilage Soup 
Savour an incredibly flavourful Cartilage soup with smooth poached Xian Cai, topped with wolfberries, a kind of chinese herb that is good for strengthening the eyes in particular. The soup has a great balance of taste that was not too sweet nor salty. This was a dish that caught the hearts of many.

蛋白花雕蒸鳕鱼
Steamed Cod Fillet with Chinese Wine and Egg White 
The steamed cod fish was then served in individual portions for all of us. A piece of cod fish was very delicately served on top of a pool of Egg White in Chinese wine sauce. Enjoy the best out of this dish by consuming the smooth fish and spongy egg white together with the chinese wine. 

福建炒面线
Fujian Wheat Vermicelli with Shredded Meat 

Another family's favourite could not escape the Fujian Wheat Vermicelli. Although the name itself did not mention, this dish actually comes with prawns and fried eggs apart from the bountiful shredded meat. The vermicelli itself was neither oily nor dry, proving itself a fine staple dish for family dinner.

杨枝甘露
Chilled Mango Sago with Pomelo 
To end off the 7-course meal, we enjoyed the Chilled Mango Sago filled with aloe vera bits, mango chunks and pomelo. The sweetness was just right. 

The dessert art looks really pretty as well.

The quality of the cuisine owes much to the restaurant's chefs, in particular Master Chef Huang Ching Biao. He came out personally to explain to us about his passion and efforts to create all the dishes at Jin Shan Lou. 




Upon reaching, you'll be ushered through the lush inviting corridors into those 6-seaters VIP 'pot', or if you have more people with you, you can opt for their VIP rooms further into the restaurant.
