Peach Garden (桃苑) at Thomson Plaza #01-88

Today my recommendation will be Peach Garden, Weekend Hi-Tea Buffet. There are some on-going promotions for OCBC card holder, 1 Adult dine free with 3 Adults paying. I would advise you to make reservation in advance.

The Hi-Tea Buffet start at 3pm and will end at 5pm. Now let's move on to our Dim Sum introduction.

As a fan for Dim Sum food, Dim Sum buffet will be a good choice for me. I can't believe that there were more than 30 selection of Dim Sum delicacies in Peach Garden. 

Look at the Push Cart that stored the deep fried food. 

Once we were directed to our table, the service staff was quite attentive to push the food cart to our table. Within less than 5 mins, our table was full of Dim Sum food.

Prawn Dumpling
Food Rating: 4/5

Fresh prawn used as the main filling wrapped with the white dumpling skin. 

Black Bean Paste Pork Ribs
Food Rating: 3.5/5

Pork Rib tasted good and not too salty. You can find some sliced Fried beancurd (Tau Pok).

Chicken Claw
Food Rating : 3.5/5

This dish is not my liking but my mum loved to eat. Chicken claw served with gravy and sliced chili.

Beancurd Roll
Food Rating: 3/5

Beancurd roll tasted average due to the soggy texture and don't really like the filling.  

Deep Fried Potato Croquette
Food Rating: 3/5

Nothing special about the Potato Croquette.

Deep Fried Dumpling
Food Rating: 3/5

Fried Yam Ball
Food Rating: 3.5/5

Fried Mango Prawn Fritter
Food Rating: 3/5

The fried fritter tasted a bit weird for me, the sweet and salty flavor combination  don't suit my palate.

Pu Er 

Free flow Chinese Tea (Pu Er).

Glutinous Rice with Lotus Leaf
Food Rating: 4/5

Glutinous rice tasted good, the filling with dried minced prawn, sliced meat and mushroom. 

Bacon Roll
Food Rating: 4/5

Bacon roll taste savoury and chewy. 

Spicy Dumpling
Food Rating: 4/5

Spicy dumpling tasted good with the spicy sauce even though the spiciness level was too much for my palate. I finished the whole bowl of dumplings, leaving the sauce alone.

Beside the push cart Dim Sum, you can also find some other Dim Sum food at the buffet counter.

Buffet counter look slightly messy and food doesn't seem appealing enough for my standard.

Porridge with shredded Chicken
Food Rating: 3.5/5

Porridge is available at the buffet counter. 

At the buffet counter, beside the porridge, you can also find other Dim Sum food like the fried carrot cake, fried noodle, Rice Roll (Zhu Chang Fen), deep fried meat and desserts.

Pig Trotter with Vinegar
Food Rating: 4/5

For those who can intake food that consists vinegar and ginger, this traditional dish will suit your palate. Pig trotter with sweet and mild sourness flavor yet so appetizing.  

Thumbs up!

Dessert Time !!!

Fried Sesame Ball 
Food Rating: 5/5

Sesame Ball was chewy and not too sweet. Thumbs up for this dessert!

Ice Cream Time!!!

If you want something refreshing after the heavy meal, try the dessert soup.

Overall, we strongly agreed that the Hi-Tea Buffet is worth to the value for only S$20.80 per pax (Adult). Our total bill was S$73.00 (with 10% Service Charge and 7% GST) for 4 pax.
