A Teochew Date at Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant


I'm always very excited to try new food and sometimes I get to experience the different type of taste and also the food culture from different race, country or even style. In this entry, I will be introducing a Teochew cuisine at the Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant in One World Hotel.



Teochew cuisine is particularly well known for its seafood and vegetarian dishes and is commonly regarded as being healthy. Its use of flavouring is much less heavy-handed than most other Chinese cuisines and depends much on the freshness and quality of the ingredients for taste and flavour. A selection of Teochew dishes has been specially prepared by Chinese Master Chef Michael Chew and available in a set menu. 



In the set menu, savour delicious creations such as this Duo Combination Teochew Style “Steamed and Deep-Fried Fen Guo”


Its ingredient contain the water chestnut, mushroom, peanuts and other vegetables.


Braised Shark’s Fin with Crab Claw and Scallop


Deep-Fried Teochew “Shi Liu Guo”


I'd cut the outer skin to show what's inside the “Shi Liu Guo” :)
It's very tasty and to me, this is a very unique delight in Chinese Cuisine.


Steamed Leather Jacket Fish with Garlic, Ginger and Teochew Sauce


The fish is spicy and fresh but I find that the texture of the fish meat is not soft enough, maybe I'm not used to having Leather Jacket Fish.

There's an option of choosing either braised rice noodle or fried rice.

Braised Rice Noodle with Assorted Seafood. I would prefer this over the fried rice for the seafood but the noodles might be too little portion for my liking.

Fried Rice with Olive Vegetable

We ended our meal with the dessert, Sweetened Yam Paste which has the gingko nuts, sliced pumpkin and sugar water with a small amount of citrus taste in it.

Every table displays their very nice sets of eating utensils provided by Zuan Yuan.
