Lan Ting

0

The new kid on the block at the busy Siglap stretch is gaining fame with its traditional yet modern take on signature Cantonese cuisine that packs a punch. The star-studded kitchen features two dedicated teams of dedicated chefs who used to helm kitchens of prestigious hotels. Over at Lan Ting (which translates to orchard pavilion), look out for an extensive menu that offers exquisite but affordable dishes amidst impeccable and chic interior decor.

Peking Ducklanting review projectweekends singaporelanting review projectweekends singaporelanting review projectweekends singaporelanting review projectweekends singaporeG: As you can see from the picture, the skin is glossy and is as crispy as it looks. It was not too dry, achieving the perfect balance between the oily fat beneath the skin and the crunch of roasted duck skin.

Dim Sum offerings include:

Abalone Dumpling – $9.80 for 3 pcslanting review projectweekends singaporeG: It was my first time seeing an abalone atop a dumpling, and this was ubiquitously loved by everyone at the table. The abalone was of fine grade, even though it’s mini.

Steamed “Siew Long Pau” – $4.80 for 3 pcslanting review projectweekends singaporeG: Everyone knows about DTF’s xiao long baos, but this one should be as much raved about. The broth inside the dumpling is actually nicer than DTF’s. You have to try it to find out if Lan Ting has indeed produced a worthy competitor! The only downside is that the skin was a little thicker than usual.

Taro Puff with Diced Chicken – $4.90 for 3 pcslanting review projectweekends singaporeG: Even if you don’t like taro, you won’t be able to stop yourself from taking second helpings! The skin was fried to golden brown, but not at all oily like usual fried puffs.

Chilli Crab Puff – $6.80 for 3 pcslanting review projectweekends singaporeG: The idea behind this crab puff is actually an inversion of the usual mantous we always dip into chilli crab sauce. Instead of the usual dipping, Lan Ting have created this special puff where the sauce is inside instead. Can’t say we don’t appreciate this bit of creativity!

Volcanic Lava Mushroom Bun – $5.80 for 3 pcslanting review projectweekends singaporelanting review projectweekends singaporeG: At first glance it looks like a grilled mushroom, but take a bite and get surprised all over. One of Lan Ting’s specialities, this liu sha bao is a must-order.

Ala-carte dishes include:

Crispy Pork Knuckle – $28lanting review projectweekends singaporeG: This had dustings of cumin, an Indian spice. Might be too strong if you don’t like the taste of herbs.

Homemade Beancurd with Assorted Mushroom – $15lanting review projectweekends singaporeRoasted Char Siewlanting review projectweekends singaporeWok-fried Seafood Udon in Oba Leaf – $18lanting review projectweekends singaporeG: The way the noodles were served caught all our attention, and I was extremely eager to try the dish out even though I was already stuffed. Instead of the usual ee-mian, it was udon. Seafood were fresh, and the noodles were the right amount of bouncy.

Lan Ting Special Fried Rice – $18lanting review projectweekends singaporeG: As much as I loved the seafood udon, it could not beat this fried rice. If you have to choose one carbo dish, take this. No regrets, I promise.

Snowy Mochi – $5.80 for 3 pcslanting review projectweekends singaporeG: I really enjoyed this as it was not your usual dessert fanfare. Instead, you’ll be surprised at the burst of mango that erupts in your mouth once you bite into it. Very refreshing after a full meal.


Overall, I was constantly surprised (in a good way) during my entire dining experience at Lan Ting. Not only was the food mostly excellent, the ambience and service was also on point.
