Prosperity Exotic Garden with Spiky Sea Cucumber, Dried Pineapple and Strawberry in Osmanthus _ Black Truffle

The Menu
Stimulate your appetite with an all-year-round lohei, Prosperity Exotic Garden Greens with Black Truffle in Osmanthus Sauce (S S$108, L S$168), and surprise your taste buds with its crunchy sweetness. This vegetarian-friendly prosperity toss is made with over 20 carefully julienned fruits and vegetables served on ice to retain its crispness, and intensified in fragrance with house-made osmanthus sauce tinged with black truffle sauce. Even though the Chinese New Year period is over, this is a lohei that is perfect to kick off any dinner!

Flambé Roast Suckling Pig

Next we have the Flambé Roast Suckling Pig (S$438). Watch as the server heats up a ladle of rose wine which catches fire and flambés an entire suckling pig a la French cooking. Thereafter the pig is served with five different sauces including a black golden garlic sauce, a truffle and wild mushroom sauce and a fresh fruit pineapple sauce.

The entire pig is extremely versatile and can be split into two other dishes such as a Deep-fried Suckling Pig Fillet with Dried Chilli (S$22 – 2nd cooking). Comfort also comes in a bowl of Stewed Rice Vermicelli with Fillet of Suckling Pig (S$22 – 2nd cooking), slow-cooked to immense sweetness with slices of suckling pig, beancurd skin, tomatoes and texturised with longevity rice vermicelli. The vermicelli was an incredible mouthful of pork fat and fills your mouth with immense good porky flavours.

Signature Beancurd Medley

While you might be familiar with the sweet dessert tau huey, Si Chuan Dou Hua serves up a savoury rendition known as the Signature Beancurd Medley (S S$28, M S$42, L S$56) which comes with three types of beancurd – soy, fried purple rice and tauhuay – done three ways – steamed, fried, and braised. Complemented with minced meat and Chinese lettuce, this plate of unadulterated sweetness and ample flavours will surely open your eyes and palate to the range of flavours and textures that a simple beancurd can offer.

“Chong Qing” Diced Chicken with Dried Chilli

No Si Chuan meal is complete without the all-time favourite classic Sichuan dish Chong Qing Diced Chicken with Dried Chilli (S S$28, M S$42, L S$56). Juicy chunks of chicken with lashings of spices and dried chillies harvested from the Chongqing region and deep-fried with garlic for the added fragrance. Be warned, this dish can be extremely spicy for many. But for those that can withstand the heat, this dish is incredibly satisfying. For a less spicy option that caters to the seafood lovers as well, the Boiled Sliced Fish with Spicy Chilli Sauce (S S$38, M S$57, L S$76), features a naturally sweet freshwater fish with a gravy infused with whole chillies and Sichuan peppers.

A usual Chinese restaurant meal would end with mango sago or orh nee. It was refreshing to see Si Chuan Dou Hua take a creative spin on its dessert offerings which include a Homemade Purple Rice Beancurd (S$12.8 per person) with black sesame and vanilla ice cream or the perfect-for-sharing Giant Glutinous Sesame Ball (S$16.80 1 piece) or Sesame Glutinous Rice Ball filled with Red Bean Paste (S$7.80 4 pieces). For a meal that sets your mouth on fire, the milky desserts that were not overly sweet presented a perfect ending to the night.
