A great place to dine when you’re in the mood for something spicy…
Singapore’s local Chinese cuisine is world famou of course, but next time you’re looking for an alternative, no need to turn to Thai, Malay, or heaven forbid, commercial pizza… go Szechuan!
Szechuan Court is the epitome of Chinese fine dining. Twin, beautifully detailed iron-doors greet the diner at the entrance, paving the way for the luxurious interior that awaits.
Flowing, rich and elegant, the restaurant blends breathtaking scarlet, purple and fuchsia upholstery with lanterns and rosewood furniture.
Begin with with the Szechuan cold cut combination, featuring sliced pork belly with garlic sauce, shredded chicken in spicy garlic sauce and Vietnamese rice paper rolls stuffed with crab meat. Spice things up with the popular Szechuan hot and sour soup, chockfull of expertly blended ingredients, its amazing taste doing justice to its popularity.
For a truly unique offering, the deep-fried eel coated with honey black pepper sauce is a must-try. Possessing a melt-in-your-mouth crunchiness but still retaining the distinct flavour of the eel, this dish easily made it to the list of our favourites.
The Wasabi Mayonnaise Prawn came glistening with a creamy green dressing and was succulent and tasty, a testament to the creativity of the chef. Desserts are worth looking forward to as the chilled apple with dates, lotus seeds and white fungus is gentle and refreshing. Or opt for the double boiled Hashima with Lotus Seed and Red Dates that will make you hum with pleasure with each spoonful.
Afterwards, you might like to cool off from such a peppery meal, and in true Chinese tradition, tea is the order of the day… and hopefully you left some room in your belly for a second course, because the food at the Szechuan Court is magnificant!
