I'm feeling jollier than usual today because I finally removed the stitches that were in my mouth for the past week! (: I'd gone for wisdom tooth extraction surgery last Sunday and have been eating soupy/ soft food for the past week so I was overjoyed when the dentist said that all is fine (: (: (: Actually, I had expected to be on a porridge diet for the entire week but it turns out that I only needed to do that on the first day because I could chew on my right side (the side without the extracted tooth) from the second day onwards so this means that I could have a variety of soupy/ soft food! Phew. I get bored with eating the same thing very easily so am just thankful that I didn't have to eat porridge for the entire week. Now that all's well, I can go back to chewing on both sides and eating less soupy/ soft stuff (:
Today I shall blog about Cherry Garden's dimsum buffet ($48++/pax) and it was quite special because it was one of the last buffets I'd before going for my extraction! I had never heard of Cherry Garden even though I've been to Mandarin Oriental quite a few times partly because I'm not a big fan of Chinese food. Thanks to Jeffrey, we decided to give this place a go because he said he did some research & reviews of this restaurant were good.
Generally, you won't go wrong if you order dishes with the Oriental hotel fan logo next to them (: Obviously I can't remember all that we've eaten so pardon me if I forget what some of the dishes are. Oh the good thing about Cherry Garden is that they'll adjust the serving sizes/ portions based on the no. of diners at the table so you don't have to worry about not being able to finish a particular dish.
mango shrimp spring roll - we'd TWO servings of this because it was just TOO good!
Xiao Long Baos which Jeffrey said were VERY good so we ordered this dish twice too!
Har gaos - yum (:
Spicy asparagus with bamboo shoots and maize - I liked this! (:
Ee-fu Noodles - Love it!
panfried carrot cake!
I would definitely want to go back to Cherry Garden again! The dimsums were fantastic and the staff were very attentive and friendly (: Thanks Jeffrey for introducing this place to us! (:
Alright it's back to school this coming week. Hope that everyone'll have a great week ahead! (:
