Cherry Garden

Hello everyone (:

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.

I think the people who did the decor for Cherry Garden really tried their best to keep to the Chinese garden theme and this is evident from the entire outlook of the restaurant (:

Default Chinese tea and some nuts for starters.

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.

 Steamed chicken

 This is MUST order: 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 (:


 Roasted pork

 Spicy asparagus with bamboo shoots and maize - I liked this! (:

 Ee-fu Noodles - Love it!

Deconstructed panfried carrot cake!

Oh this was some exotic seafood thing that the waitress encouraged us to try but we both didn't like it!

 Forgot the name of this dish but I loved it!

 Soup! There are many to choose from - we chose something that was nonspicy so Jeffrey could drink.

Their 3 signature desserts - lovely way to end the meal.

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! (:

  2. Hello!

    Sorry for the late reply! I guess it's personal preference because of bad past experience with meat (:
