Blue Lotus Chinese Eating House in Quayside Isle serves classic Chinese dishes with a twist, in an idyllic setting
By Cheryl Chia
You would think that any restaurant located along Quayside Isle in Sentosa Cove would cost a bomb to dine in. Surprisingly, Blue Lotus Chinese Eating House – a new concept by The Emmanuel Stroobant Group – is reasonably-priced for good quality eats.
Chef Emmanuel partners with his work and life partner Edina Hong and long-time friend Ricky Ng for this new concept.
Ricky says, “Blue Lotus aims to be a fuss-free Chinese restaurant serving good value-for-money dishes.” We agree.
Seafood by the Sea
Blue Lotus Chinese Eating House has recently updated its menu with Lemongrass Prawn Roast ($18), with prawn paste roasted on the end of a lemongrass stick, for a fragrant and flavourful starter.
We also liked their sinfully-good Crispy Fried Salmon Skin ($12) coated with salted egg yolk. The crispy and slightly sandy salmon skin is great with Fresh Coconut Juice ($8).
Also try their Crispy Fried Squid Tentacles with salt and pepper ($26). Once you start, you simply cannot stop!
AsiaN with a Twist
If you like hot-stone meats, try their Wok Fried Kagoshima Wagyu Beef Tenderloin ($45). The meat is mouth-numbing with peppercorns, capsicums as well as onions. It goes wonderfully with a bowl of their truffle rice.
The piece de resistance is definitely their Blue Lotus Signature Chilli Pomelo Crab ($7.80 per 100g); their crabs are at least 1.5kg and come in a spicy chilli sauce topped with bitter-sweet fresh pomelo to kill the burn.
Also available is their take on the local favourite, their Hot Stone Long Ribs Bak Kut Teh ($16). Desserts include a tart Lemongrass Gelo with Lime Sorbet ($9) and a fragrant Deep Fried Red Bean and Lotus Pancake ($12).
Try these dishes. You won’t be disappointed.
And, you’ll have wonderful scenery to accompany your meal.
