We attended a tasting which featured some of the seafood dishes and below are the highlights.

Sliced Pufferfish with Fresh Chili and Sesame

Created by Executive Chef Chan at TOP of UOB Plaza, the puffer fish is used as an uncommon ingredient in an authentic Si Chuan dish. Imported directly from Japan, Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant is currently the only restaurant in Singapore that employs the use of pufferfish in Chinese cuisine.

Steamed Giant Garoupa in Sichuan Peppercorn Sauce

Created by Chef Zeng Feng at PARKROYAL on Beach Road, fresh slices of giant garoupa are doused in a sour, spicy and numbing bright yellow sauce for an authentic Sichuan flavour.

Handmade Shunde Fishballs

Famed for his his hearty Cantonese-styled soups, Executive Chef Leung Wing Chung at PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road will be presenting a single-serve order of luxurious double-boiled soup, teeming with various seafood items such as the handmade Shunde fishballs, mussels and prawns, as part of a seafood buffet feast.

The humble handmade fishballs are the stars here, from the chef’s own house recipe and prepared the traditional way. Diners have the option to up S$10 for a portion of Crispy Rice to add a little crunch to the flavourful broth. We tried it and highly recommend you to go for it because of the enhanced texture and flavours.

Handmade Steamed Pufferfish Dumplings

Available exclusively at TOP of UOB Plaza, this exquisite dim sum item is handcrafted by Master Dim Sum Chef Peng Yi Chun using squid ink to create the likeness of a real pufferfish and featuring pufferfish meat wrapped in the dumpling.

Additional seafood items we sampled include flower clams, crispy Japanese crabs served atop sherbet as a dessert, among other unique creations:
