Dian Xiao Er (JEM)

Dian Xiao Er is no stranger to anyone who enjoys quality and yummy herbal ducks. It's also considered The Must Eat In Singapore. 

It's been a while ever since we last enjoyed a good meal from Dian Xiao Er and with visitors around we welcome them with one of the popular To Eats. We ordered their Signature Set (人气套餐) for 4 pax with 7 dishes from their menu. We can choose to have plain white rice or brown rice at a top-up rate.

Kicking start the meal with these crunchy Baby Kai Lan accompanied by a dash of citrusy lime juice with a zesty touch.

The starring dish is none other than their Herbal Roast Duck. It was marinated with a blend of spices and Chinese Herbs for hours and roasted under a precise temperature which maintains the succulency while being in the oven. Crispy and roast to golden brown in appearance. Their roast duck was soaked and complemented with Angelica Herb Sauce which made everyone on the table sing with praises.

A special homemade dish infused with freshly squeezed wheatgrass extract and this block of silky homemade tofu was served with seafood bits, broccoli, and edamame.

The fish maw soup with seafood was thick and densely nutritious. Tasty morsels of crab meat, prawns, mock abalone as well as fish maw made it so yummy.

Each piece of boneless chicken thigh was uniformly coated and flavoured in marmite, then sprinkled with roasted sesame. The taste was great and our guests enjoyed it.

The nutritious Hong Kong-style steamed fish slices were drenched with a special soy sauce and the taste was elevated by the use of shallot oil. Fish Slices were perfectly prepared to the ideal texture.

While some of us is craving for something spicy, we decided to order the Sambal Kang Kong. These vegetables were tossed in the right amounts of Sambal chilli and good to go along with our bowls of rice

Every dish was so palatable that our stomachs literally screamed in joy. Dian Xiao Er lives up to its name as the award-winning Chinese Casual  Restaurant.
