Paradise Teochew Restaurant at Chinese Swimming Club
is not easy to find a good Teochew restaurant in Singapore. Located in a
really special and apt location, the Chinese Swimming Club,
Paradise Teochew Restaurant is indeed quite a gem. Helmed by Chef Cheng
Fa Kwan, he is backed by 34 years of experience in creating the special menu for this restaurant.
Embracing the Teochew root of emphasis
on natural flavours, light seasoning and most importantly, freshness of
ingredients used, Paradise Teochew features over a hundred dishes of
Teochew style signature dishes. Coupled
with an array of dim sum offerings, diners are certainly spoilt for
A higher grade Oolong tea was served as we were seated. It helps to clean the palatte so that diners are ready for a good feast!
Teochew Four Varieties Combination comprises of Teochew Pork Roll,
Teochew Prawn Ball, Braised Sliced Duck and Pan Friend Scallop with
Minced Garlic. Pictures don't do justice to the quality of the food, but we will try our best to describe the flavours for you.
prawn balls are hand made by the chef daily. You can definitely tell
from the shape of each prawn ball that they are hand pressed. Tasty and much
fresher than what you get at other restaurants, the deep fried crisp around the ball will have you wanting more
The Pork Rolls @ Ngoh Hiangs are also very crispy with just enough chestnut in them to keep you chewing with a crunch.
The next dish is highly recommended.
Freshly made daily, the chefs have to skim
out the egg white from a carton of eggs, lightly pan fry them like a crepe, wrap
the diced chicken, Chinese Ham, bamboo shoots and chestnuts, then steam
them. The meat is also stir fried before they are placed within for
steaming. Its such an intricately made dish with an intensely satisfying
flavour. Certainly 2 is not enough.
Sauteed Pomfret Fillet in Tomato Broth and salty vegetables is also
worthy a try. The fish is extremely fresh and the Tomato broth certainly
surprised us. Thick and flavourful, the broth complements the fish perfectly. Have the soup with some rice and this dish will certainly fill you up.
Braised Mustard Green you see below is cooked to softness, topped with
shredded conpoy and prawn roe. Very special and an extremely
Teochew dish. It is very light tasting with bursts of flavour from the prawn
roe. Good to have for a balanced meal!
This is a noodle imported from Hong Kong by the Chef because he had tasted this
in a Teochew restaurant there. No other supplier has this in Singapore. A
Must dish to have! Gently dip the slices in the vinegar and sugar provided. As a guide, 4 slices per person will keep you
just at bay from overeating at this dish.
was the dessert. As mentioned by the chef, this dish is not easy to make and is made fresh daily and upon order too. It doesn't look
sweet nor cold but once you eat it, it just makes sense... totally!
combination of crispy pumpkin, yam and sweet potato, this dish certainly feeds the eyes too. The Chef has gone back to Hong Kong to find
out how to make this as he had this dish many years ago and still remembers it. It is safe to say Paradise Teochew is the only one who
has this dish in Singapore. Indeed, a treat from the usual
mashed yam with gingko. We suggest ordering this for a fresh taste
instead of the usual.
general the food at Paradise Teochew is really light flavoured. We
feel that those who have a liking towards strong tastes will also be able to enjoy the
food here. Comfortable ambience and great service tops off the meal and makes it a pefect place for a family dinner.
