Gourmet Food Trail with Ah Lun (阿伦笑吃人间 周末趴趴吃) – Part 3 of 5: Long Beach KING Seafood and Peach Blossoms
A very BIG thank you to omy.sg and Lianhe Wanbao, I was invited to join the Gourmet Food Trail “阿伦笑吃人间 周末趴趴吃” together with veteran food critic Ah Lun (黄卓伦) to sample various signature dishes by Long Beach KING Seafood at Kallang and Peach Blossoms at Marina Mandarin.
With more than 65 years of experience in seafood delicacies, Long Beach is THE household name to many seafood lovers in Singapore and overseas. Senior Group Manager, Wendy, also mentioned that the restaurant offers air flown Alaskan King crabs throughout the year and they are kept alive in temperature-controlled tanks. Imagine the freshness when you take that first delightful bite!
Below are some pictures taken at the event.
‘Yingge’ Style Live Lobster
Steamed Live Royal Scottish Razor Clam with Minced Garlic
‘Li Ying’ Chicken Wings
‘Dong Po’ Rib with Honey Sauce – My favorite! The attractive gloss on the surface of the caramelized and crisp exterior coupled with alternating layers of fat and meat drizzled with brown honey sauce resulting in an outstanding and seductive melt in your mouth experience. Mmmm… This dish is definitely a crowd pleaser!
Surprise Dish – Fried Crispy Kang Kong with Cuttlefish
Surprise Dish – Deep Fried Flat Rice Noodles with ‘La La King’
Almond Paste with Black Sesame Ice Cream and Thousand Durian Roll
Peach Blossoms at Marina Mandarin impresses with a menu of exquisite Cantonese fare skillfully prepared by Chef Aw Yeong Kin and his culinary team.
(Left) Shark’s Fin Melon Seafood Soup – Don’t worry guys! Shark’s fin melon is a fruit, fins not included.
(Right) Fried Rice with Assorted Seafood, Salted Egg Yolk Crispy Anchovy and Vegetables
Stir-fried Scallops and Cuttlefish in X.O. Sauce
Steamed Sea Perch with Chicken Ham and Black Mushrooms
Surprise Dish – Stewed Chicken with Dang Gui in Claypot – My Favorite! The vermilion coloured wolfberries and juicy plump red dates lent a rosy attractive hue to the soup which was full flavoured and accentuated the taste of the tender roasted chicken, leaving a slight and yet delightful bitter aftertaste of Dang Gui in your mouth. This unique harmonious blend of flavours pleasantly tickled my taste buds in all the right places, leaving me craving for more and therefore, I ta-powed a serving home for my family.
