Peach Garden: Dim Sum Singapore

Peach Garden is one of the most well-known restaurants when it comes to Chinese fine dining in Singapore. It currently has five branches at Novena Gardens, Thomson Plaza, Hotel Miramar, Orchid Country Club, and OCBC Centre 33.

Reservations are highly recommended, especially if you would like to have a window seat. The dim sum menu has over 20 items to choose from. Otherwise, you can go for the set menu at $38++/pax.

Most of the dim sum items come in basket of 3, but as there were eight of us, they were flexible enough to allow us to order 8 pieces instead.

The baked BBQ pork pastry, or char-siew sou was good, but I’ve had better ones elsewhere before.

The Fried Carrot Cake with X.O Sauce – one of Peach Garden’s signature dishes – was slightly crispy on the outside, and very soft on the inside. But I couldn’t taste much of the X.O sauce, and to be completely honest, I am not sure if I’d pay $8 for it.

The baked mini egg tarts were decent with flaky crust and smooth egg custard.

Another highlight was the Siew Mai. I would say it was quite good, with predominantly lean meat, and crunchy shrimp.

The Har Gau, on the other hand, was okay but not fantastic. I didn’t find it very outstanding although it was definitely in the above average region.

Steamed BBQ Pork Bun is one of my all time favourite dim sum items, and Peach Garden’s rendition was actually one of the better ones that I’ve had.

The signature dim sum of Peach Garden is without a doubt, the Steamed Custard Bun. The beautiful golden yellow custard filling oozed out when I poked a hole into the bun. I’d come back to Peach Garden just for this.

Initially, I thought that it was quite expensive to pay $7 for one spare ribs. I had to eat my words when the staff served it to our table. The BBQ sauce went very well with the Baked Spare Ribs, and we finished everything.

Overall, Peach Garden at OCBC Centre 33rd floor is a nice place to go for dim sum. It offers a bird’s eye view of the beautiful skyline, and most of the dim sums are reasonably priced.

Hmm…The price is pretty high but not as high as i have expected it to be. Still affordable i guess.
The mini egg tart looks good, fluffy pastry.
I had a bad experience with mini egg tart at dim sum place, dry and no egg taste at all, and it costs me $1!!! *fainted*

Hello Tianhong: Nice meeting you too!

Hello Jojo: Yeah quite affordable if you don’t over-ordered. hm, the mini egg tart here is $1.30, even worse than yours. lol

Hello Camemberu: Not sure, you try let me know. But their dim sum are not bad i guess. Hahaha! you got so many places to go to. lol

Hello Mama Bok: We didn’t over-order, i guess the dim sum was quite enough to fill us up! Yeah the ribs were literally quite a rip-off, but they are nice : )

Haha, I disagree – I reckon if not for the birthday cake, we would probably be heading for Macs for burgers! Heh.

It’s time like this that you appreciate Victor’s Kitchen more for its value for money dim sum. One Har Kaw per pax just don’t work out for me – I rather have a whole basket to myself anytime.

The ribs though nice is really a rip-off. There is no consistency in the serving – same came without the layer of fats on it and come really lean and skinny.

Hello HFB: Thats why i emphasize taste is subjective and different people like diff stuff.

I never try Victor’s kitchen, probably will try it soon. Ya i do agree the ribs are a rip off, 7 bucks for a piece of rib. Gosh, its a one time thing that i will order.

ribs in restaurant are all charged more or
less the same price. Crystal Jade’ Garlicy
fried ribs costs the same too.
Any idea how much per kilo for ribs of this
quality from Air pork ? more than $23/
I make 1.2 kilo ribs for my family and they are
about 10 pcs . I strongly believe in home-cooking & teach my kids the of living of against inflations…and we know we are NOT using recycle-oil which is bad for our health..
