Peking Duck is the best thing on the Yum Char menu. This dim sum restaurant used to be only at Chinatown, but they have a branch at the Serangoon Garden Country Club now. My family likes this place because it is easy to find parking here and the restaurant is huge so it doesn’t get too crowded.
Back to the duck – half a duck costs $29 Singapore dollars (note that the price is before taxes). You get slices of roasted duck skin wrapped in a crepe with lovely sweet bean sauce. They carve the duck in front of you. The rest of the duck is stir fried with garlic and is pretty tasty too, although not as good as the sweet crispy skin.
The service here is friendly and that’s a good reason to come here with your family. A table can seat 10 people comfortably, but my family which is usually up to 15 of us can feel quite squeezed. We don’t like splitting into 2 tables because we miss out of the conversation and it is not much fun.
Yum Char means drink tea and even their sambal chilli comes in a cute tea pot saucer.
My mum enjoyed the Seafood Hor Fun, but I am spoilt, having had the best ever Hor Fun (thick flat rice noodle stir-fried with a thick sauce) at the famous coffee shop in Geylang. Anyway if you do have Hor Fun you must have it with pickled green chilli or it just won’t be as good. The dish costs $12 Singapore dollars at this restaurant.
I usually go for chilled, mango pomelo and sago dessert but this time the dessert tasted too much like mango juice with very sour pomelo. I would have liked it lighter with a more generous portion of sago. The dessert cost $4.50 Singapore dollars.
