My favourite high tea in Singapore but it is actually because of the free flow local savouries such as chilli crab mantou, white carrot cake, popiah, sambal prawns, prata and rojak 😋

Satay Babi Goreng ($39) veers towards the rich side, hence the bowl of rice is there for you to enjoy the gravy. The pork belly was even more tender than expected, but a handful less salt would have made the flavours of the dish more balanced.

Ikan Chuan Chuan ($52) allows you to enjoy the beautiful meat of the fresh whole snapper without the fuss of deboning the fish. Cubed and deep-fried, each fish nugget is very lightly battered, with the meat staying firm and moist. The tangy-sweet dressing has a very good consistency that simply glazed the surface of the battered fish cubes, flavouring them without weighing them down.

Some of the Peranakan signatures we tried include the likes of Pong Tahu Goreng, Kurobuta Pork and Crabmeat Nonya Ngoh Hiang, Ayam Buah Keluak and Udang Masak Pedas Nanas.

These special dishes are available at The Clifford Pier, The Fullerton Bay Hotel from 13 to 28 June 2019.

Now, we are off to an exciting event this evening, stay tune!

Check out this silky soft Satay Babi Goreng by guest Chef Philip Chia which I found to be irresistible! On my first bite, I thought it was fish instead of pork belly (yes the meat is that tender). Really enjoyed the traditional Peranakan dishes available. Read more on link in bio.

I know...... dinner at Clifford Pier and you had Bak Chor Mee?!?!?!
But I couldn’t help it. I absolutely love Bak Chor Mee and the fact they declared it “Best” made me just want to try it more and I had absolutely no regrets.

Best Bak Chor Mee ($27.00)
The minute the bowl came, I knew there was something different. The Mee Pok (flat yellow noodles) looked a lot thinner.
Took a bit and I was completely drawn in.
The noodle was springy (QQ) and had a nice snap to it and the seasoning was mind blowing good. The vinegar they used was so fragrant. It was slightly sweet, slightly salty and slightly pungent, without any of it over taking each other. With each bite, it felt like multiple flavours filled the inside of the mouth, building up the anticipation for the next bite. It was complex, more complex than any Bak Chor Mee I’ve had before yet it all very balanced.

They were very generous with the ingredients as well, with a mixture of minced pork, lean pork, pork ball and pork liver.
The addition of lard was always a welcome and the inclusion of small pieces of crispy flat fish just added to the umami and gave a different texture to each bite.
The only thing I wasn’t a fan of was the wanton. Wanton felt doughy despite looking fat and stuffed with ingredients and there was this taste of almost raw dough that lingered in mouth after eating.

Apart from that hiccup, everything else was amazing.

Nasi Goreng ($27.00)
Nasi Goreng unfortunately was a bit of a let down.
Not that it was bad, it was just very normal and well...... “hotel” standard. The rice was fluffy with a bit of spice, but it wasn’t very fragrant and was more Chinese fried rice than Nasi Goreng and the fried chicken looked and tasted a lot like it came out of a CP bag.
The achar (pickled vegetables) it came with was pretty good. Not too sour and not too sweet.
The star of the show had to be the satays.
In all honesty, it looked like nothing much but it was good! The chicken satays were tender and you could taste the fragrant lemongrass in the marinade. The peanut sauce it came with was good too. It’s a lot smoother than what you get outside yet having this almost peanut butter flavour to it. In fact, it was so good, we ended up ordering a plate of satay ($21.00 for 8 pieces. We had a mix of chicken and beef).

Dining at Clifford Pier was truest and experience. The food had some hits and misses but I was overall still really good.
The only thing was..... while the singer was good..... she didn’t quite fit the setting.

Still. And overall wonderful experience

Chose this main course as part of the $42 three-course weekday lunch (over the other choice of spicy grouper curry with rice). Frankly speaking, I was quite disappointed. The beef was stewed to tender, but all other sides (kailan, kimchi, fried onions) taste like.. you know, just regular kimchi or veggies that you can get anywhere else. All these are served on top of a huge portion of overly greasy sticky soy sauce rice. I mean, maybe the disappointment came because I was expecting some really nice food, given the great ambient and view of the restaurant, and the price we need to pay for this lunch set, but really, nothing more than average quality
