If Chinese cuisine brings to mind the usual suspects like roasts and dim sum, you’re not wrong.
But here at Song Garden, there’s more than meets the eye.
In the words of Senior Manager Alson Ho, “Nothing placed on the plate cannot be devoured.”
From the astute presentation to the garnishing, the dishes are no doubt creative and flavourful — a modern spin on classic Cantonese dishes.
Situated at the recently launched Mercure Singapore Bugis, the 120-seater contemporary Cantonese restaurant lets guests dine among traditional Chinese furniture and beautiful art pieces.
Here are six interesting dishes to try:
1. Chilled Five-Spice Foie Gras with Blueberry Compote, $26.80
If you fancy foie gras, you’re bound to enjoy Song Garden’s version of this delicacy. First soaked for three days in a homemade sauce comprising superior soya sauce, rock sugar and five-spice, the foie gras is cubed and served chilled atop a blueberry compote comprising blueberries, cranberries and a hint of white wine and lemon juice. The compote, with its fruity flavours, delicately balances out the richness of this pâté.
