Club Chinos has been in Orchard Parade Hotel for many years. And its Sunday Brunch is pretty popular.
Serving more than 100 dishes, from Dim Sum to Cantonese delicacies, there must be something to satisfy everyone from the family.
The decor in the restaurant is classy, but really noisy and crowded on a Sunday afternoon.
Honey glazed BBQ pork. Char siew is a bit tough.
Wok-baked prawns with spicy sauce enhanced with Chinese wine - I love prawns. Fresh and crunchy. No complaints. Sauce is tangy and a bit spicy.
Sharks fins soup - The poor shark sacrificed for this average tasting soup.
Assortment dim sum - Fresh prawns dumplings, Siew Mai and egg custard buns.
I need to put this on record - The siew mai is THE WORST I have ever tried. It is made of like 20% pork and 80% flour mixture. Terrible. Worst than those coffeeshop Siew Mai. Avoid at all cost.
Can't remember this soup, but it was served in a coconut with crabmeat.
Chee Cheong Fun with prawns - prawns are crunchy and tasty.
Braised Chef beancurd, Sauteed vegetables, with Nameko mushrooms and crispy dried scallops.
Crisp fried prawns with Sun dried tomato sauce - Again, I love prawns. No complaints. Sauce is quite tangy. Goes well with the crispy prawns.
Braised Mee Sua with Golden Mushrooms and Noble Tanfu Sauce - I have no idea wat this Tanfu sauce is, but it's a bit sweet and salty. Dish was quite good, but unfortunately stomach is bursting.
Pan seared Lamb fillet with Fennel seeds. Not sure if I got the sauce correct. Lot's of sun dried tomatoes. Meat is tender.
Chilled herbal jelly, Chinese pastry topped with sesame seeds, Double boiled snow fungus red dates and almond seeds and Chilled Aloe Vera Jelly with Lime Syrup flavoured witg Lemongrass.
Cream of Almond with dumpling.
This is my 1st time eating at Club Chinos. I am not sure if they have better dishes, but the thought of the Siew Mai is stopping me to visit this restaurant again.
