at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore
Any dining experience within the prestigious Mandarin Oriental, Singapore is destined to be a luxurious one, and Cherry Garden is no exception – in fact, it goes above and beyond these soaring expectations.
One of the most beautiful restaurants in Singapore, Cherry Garden offers an eclectic menu of Cantonese cuisine, traditionally cooked then presented with an artistic, modern flair. Only the finest, freshest ingredients are used, and the menu is changed every few months to incorporate seasonal produce.
But despite the changing menu, there a few signature favourites that regularly pop up to please loyal diners, like the crispy Wasabi-Aioli Prawns with fresh mango and tobiko (roe from flying fish), the Hawthorne-glazed Kurobuta Pork Ribs, the oven-baked and honey marinated Cod Fillet with a piquant black pepper coating, and the La Mien Soup with shreds ofsucculent duck and Sichuan vegetables. Desserts are also authentically Cantonese, with our favourite being the Kuei Hua Chen; a Chinese wine-cocktail jelly, served with a refreshing lychee sorbet.
Entered via a striking antique doorway, the restaurant has been authentically designed with Feng Shui in mind, with charcoaled teak panels and slate floors to recreate the look of a splendid Oriental residence. And to truly enjoy the homely feel of this gorgeous dining area, Cherry Garden has its famous selection of Chinese teas on hand, specially selected to match the Cantonese cuisine.
The restaurant has also recently relaunched its tantalising weekend dim sum brunch due to popular demand, brimming with alluring flavours and innovative creations alongside one of the most dazzling arrays of handcrafted dim sum the city has ever seen. Look out for the traditional Cantonese Steamed Pork Siew Mai with Baby Abalone, the Kurobuta Char Siew Bao stuffed with sticky barbecued pork, and the slightly sweet Custard Bun with a scrumptious yam filling.
