Cherry Garden – Weekend Dim Sum Brunch at Mandarin Oriental

The friend wanted to have dim sum so we ended up at Cherry Garden cos we have never tried before. Their dim sum brunch has 2 timings: 11am to 1pm or 1.30pm to 3.30pm and cost $68 per pax for adult. The good thing about dim sum here is it runs like ala carte buffet style so you can order as many dishes as you like till you can’t eat anymore


The place wasn’t very packed but at least half the restaurant was filled when we were there for the first seating

And then we went a little over the top with the ordering


Steamed Prawn Dumpling with Black Garlic


Steamed Pork Siew Mai with Baby Abalone


Steamed Pork Xiao Long Bao


Steamed Kurobuta Char Siew Bao


Steamed Crystal Dumplings w Fresh Mushroom and Black Truffle

The crystal dumplings tasted a little strange to me..


Crispy Beancurd Roll Filled with Prawn & Lychee

But we really like the crispy beancurd skin


Fried Yam Puff & Roasted Duck & Mushroom


Wok Fried Radish Cake w XO Sauce

Thought the radish cake was good too


Steamed Iberico Pork Ribs w Black Bean Sauce

And the pork ribs just tasted like fats without the meat


Steamed Pork & Prawn Dumplings w Vinegar & Spicy Sauce

This was a little disappointing. It was just okay but nothing outstanding


Steamed Custard Bun w Yam

And the custard bun wasn’t what we were expecting


Daily Soup: Watercress Soup

The watercress soup tasted like home, like what your mum would have cooked at home


Golden Pumpkin Soup w Minced Chicken & Corn

And the pumpkin soup was really nice too


Cantonese-style Roasted Pork Belly, Charcoal Roasted Duck, Honey-Glazed Kurobuta Char Siew (From Left)


The roasted delight was a must-order


We had second portions of all 3


Crispy Wasabi-Aioli Prawns w Mango & Tobiko


Fried Chinese Bun w Chilli Crab Sauce

We find the mantou tasted good without the sauce. The sauce felt a little bit too watery


Braised Cod Fish w Spinach, Tofu, Capsicum & Black Bean Sauce


Sliced Braised Beef Fillet w Five Spices

The braised beef was really disappointing. The meat was tough and we left this plate untouched in the end


Shredded Pork & Century Egg Congee


Braised Ee-Fu Noodles w Nameko Mushroom, Silver Sprouts & Chives

The noodles were decent but the portion was huge. We felt so full after having one bowl each


Cherries in Nuerhong & Aged Kuei Hua Wine Cocktail Jelly Served w Lychee Sorbet (left), Chilled Mango w Sago Pearls, Pomelo & Lime Sorbet (right)


Organic Black Bean Pudding w Avocado & Sesame Ice cream

This was surprisingly nice. So glad we gave this a try in the end


Cream of Almond w Glutinous Rice Dumpling


Hawthorne Jelly w Chestnut

This reminded me of childhood snack. If you want something light, you can give this a try

I thought the dim sum here was okay but not really outstanding. If you want somewhere in the city and everywhere else is fully booked, you can give this place a try but I felt like it wouldn’t be my first choice for dim sum to go
