This drink is also on the lighter side. Mildly sweet, herbally taste with bits of osmanthus jelly within.

Light and refreshing drink! I liked that it was not too sweet and with a slight bitter aftertaste from the grapefruit! Could not really taste the strawberry though.

How can we miss the dumplings when we are at Dumpling Darlings? Together with each lunch set comes with a side of 4 pcs dumplings. There were 4 of us, 4 lunch sets, 4 pcs of dumplings so obviously we ordered 4 different flavours!
⁣⁣ ⁣⁣
Here we have: (From the left)
✅The Original
As the name states, tasted just like a regular gyoza. Taste is decent but nothing much to wow about.
⁣⁣ ⁣⁣
✅ Smoked Duck
Each dumpling was filled with chunks of duck meat, which were indeed on the saltier side but the hint of sourness from the balsamic vinaigrette provided a perfect balance to the dish.
⁣⁣ ⁣⁣
✅ Momo Curry
Filled with minced pork collar, curry spice and charred cauliflower. The prominent curry spices came through really well but I liked more was the labneh that comes along with the dumplings. It gives a refreshing flavour to the dish, which cuts the richness of the curry. Not bad!

✅ Fried Pierogi
Deep fried dumpling filled with smoked bacon, truffle potato and cheddar. Served on a sriracha crema. This is one unique dumpling! Definitely never had a dumpling with such rich flavours before. The taste is fine but it can be quite jelak to finish a whole plate on your own. Luckily we only had one each.

Handmade noodles coated with Sichuan tare, topped with spicy minced meat, bacon sofrito, fried shallots and spring onions. I would say this is a toned down version of the usual Sichuan dishes that we are familiar with so if you are expecting a numbing, choking spiciness, this dish would appear pretty underwhelming. Taste is alright but I would prefer the other 2 noodles over this

Handmade noodles coated with a delicious, savoury soy tare, topped with shredded pork ragu, bacon sofrito, fried shallots and spring onions. The flavour of this dish is more on the savoury side as compared to the miso mushroom noodles. This was quite yummy too!

As part of the $16++ lunch set, which includes a bowl of egg noodles with a complimentary egg, a side of dumplings (4 pieces) and an iced drink, we have the miso mushroom noodles here.

Handmade noodles coated with miso tare, topped with braised mushrooms, shallots and spring onions. Flavour was pretty good but what I loved the most was the springy chewy texture of the noodles! The shallots and spring onions also added varying textures to the dish. Not bad!

My favourite dessert out of the three! A refreshing palate cleanser after all the savoury dishes. The fragrance and sweetness of the lychee spreads through your mouth first and ends off with a hint of ginger and ginger bits within the sorbet. A unique flavour indeed! The sorbet was also topped with roasted peanut crumble and lime jelly to introduce more flavours and textures to the dessert.

⁣⁣Red date pudding served with vanilla bean ice cream, soaked in a longan tea glaze. This dessert is on the sweeter side so I would recommend sharing but it is a delicious dessert nonetheless.

The coconut panna cotta was really fragrant and creamy. Texture was smooth and silky too. Served together with pulut hitam (black glutinous rice) and coconut shavings, a perfect match.

⁣⁣ ⁣⁣✅Pandan Chiffon Green ($8.50++)
A green tea blend flavoured with pandan, cinnamon and osmanthus. This tea will indeed remind you of the classic pandan chiffon cake. Absolutely love the pandan fragrance! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣ ⁣⁣
✅Peranakan Longan Red Date ($6.50++)

Mixed vegetables, bean curd skin and mushrooms braised in prawn bisque. However, the prawn bisque is not rich enough in my opinion so it tasted pretty normal to me.

⁣This dish is basically pan-fried barramundi fish fillets in a spicy and sour assam gravy. Taste wise is okay but then again, it did not wow me in any way. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣
