I won't deny that i love my dim sum - shrimp dumplings with fresh prawns wrapped in translucent skin, steamed custard buns that flow and burst at your first bite and baked egg tarts encased in flaky golden crust. And i won't deny as well, that it gets even better when it's "all-you-can-eat".
The all-you-can-eat brunch at Peach Blossoms features an array of dim sum freshly rolled out in a trolley to ensure that your food gets to you piping hot. Their brunch menu not only features dim sum, but also exciting new dishes and soups that's bound to whet your appetite.
From the dim sum trolley, be sure to head for the Steamed Prawn Dumping (Har Gao) that's handmade with the freshest prawns. Also, the Steamed Chicken Dumpling with Black Mushroom (Siew Mai) that has excellent bite and flavour. Of course, not forgetting the Steamed Custard Bun with Salted Egg Yolk which oozes with goodness to the extent i guarantee you'll ask for multiple portions.
Also on the menu that's worth a try is the Whole Abalone and Wonton in Superior Broth. The soup is extremely thick and flavourful and the wontons are generously filled with shrimps. If you prefer something lighter on the palate, the Bird's Nest on Steamed Egg White is silky smooth and glides down your throat, promising to leave you with better complexion from the amount of bird's nest on top!
Other interesting dishes that's on the brunch menu include the Pan-fried Foie Gras with Smoked Duck served with Mantou, a dish that encompasses both the western and eastern cuisine. The Baked Losbter with cheese, although a tad salty, will leave seafood lovers in delight. And if you are a truffle lover, you will definitely enjoy the Egg Noodles tossed in aromatic truffle oil, topped with roasted tender slices of barbecued pork loin (Char Siew).
The dim sum brunch runs from 1 August 2015, which also means as soon as you have read this, the phone lines at Marina Mandarin are already open for booking. Not exactly the most affordable in the market at SGD 48++ for weekdays and SGD 58++ for weekends, the dim sum and dishes however, make it worthwhile - especially since you can expect lobster, abalone and truffle on the menu. And because it's 'all-you-can-eat', there's no excuse to have everything on repeat.
