LE Restaurant and Asian Tapas Bar @ Suntec City Mall
We were very impressed with the food in LE Restaurant by Paradise Group that we went there again within a week!
Business is now better, and the restaurant has a nice "zen" feel.
This is one of Paradise Group's best dim sum - Steamed rice rolls with preserved turnip fillings (S$6.80). It's so good that now it is available at a few of their Paradise group of restaurants.
Steamed Winter Melon Roll with Yunnan Ham (S$6.80) with Oyster Sauce - Light and tasty
Steamed Shanghai Pork Dumplings (S$6.80) - The XLB is comparable to those from DTF.
Steamed Glutinous Rice with Chicken (S$6.80 for 2 pieces) - Quite small, and you can finish one in 2 or 3 mouthfuls.
Pork Siew Mai Skewers with Foie Gras (S$16.80 for 4) - Another of our favouries.
USDA Beef with Mantou - a spin to the normal pork mantous, here juicy beef are used.
Double Boiled Cordycep Flowers Soup (S$12.80 per person) with jumbo dumpling
Baked Escargot with Parmesan Pastry (S$9 for 4 pieces)
Dirty Duck (S$38 for half duck) - Crispy braised duck. Another unique dish. The "dirt" is actually due to the deep frying process after the duck was braised.
Crispy duck is shredded, wrapped in homemade scallion crepe with condiments.
This is the signature dish here in Le Restaurant - Braised cherry foie gras with red wine (S$26) in cherry sauce. The whole thing looks like cherries but it is actually made of foie gras. The only thing cherry about this is the cherry sauce (which we cannot really taste). Still, it was worth an order.
Stir Fried Angel Hair with Sakura Prawns - We love their angel hair pasta here.
Roasted lamp chop with red wine and cumin - Another of their signature dish. Some may not like the strong cumin taste, but others may find it acceptable.
Chilled bird's nest on bed of apple and chrysanthemum jelly - A cooling end to a delicious brunch!
