Gourmet Food Trail with Ah Lun (阿伦笑吃人间 周末趴趴吃) – Part 3 of 5: Long Beach King (长堤海霸王海鲜酒楼) and Marina Mandarin Peach Blossoms (滨华酒店 鸿桃轩)

In a special collaboration with ten well-known restaurants, omy.sg and Lianhe Wanbao, together with veterian food critic Ah Lun (黄卓伦) will be bringing a group of readers on an exclusive gourmet food trail for five consecutive Saturdays.

Each week, a group of 80+ readers will visit two restaurants together with Ah Lun to sample their signature dishes as well as specially created dishes, not available on the restaurants’ menu.

Other than eating, participants will also have the rare opportunities to meet with the restaurants’ chef who will be answering questions and even sharing a few cooking tips on the spot.

Last Saturday was the third event. I attended the food trail together with fellow bloggers, Cherie Lee and Calvin Timothy.

We visited Long Beach King (长堤海霸王海鲜酒楼) at Kallang for the first session and Peach Blossoms at Marina Mandarin (滨华酒店 鸿桃轩) for the latter session.

Here’s the menu for the first stop:

莺歌活龙虾
蒜蓉圣旨王
丽影凤翅
东坡骨
冷热甜品 杏仁露+黑糯米雪糕+千丝猫山王榴梿卷
Surprise Dishes: Cuttlefish with fried Kang Kong, Fried Hor Fun with Seafood

I particularly like their award-wining chicken wing, pork ribs and Mao Shang Wang (猫山王) durian dessert.

The fried, crispy Kang Kong vegetable and fried, crispy Hor Fun were both delightful surprises. This style of cooking is not available in the regular menu, but are available upon request when ordering. Next time you head down to a Long Beach restaurant, do try ordering them. 🙂
