Among the many exquisite dishes that were on the table that afternoon, HFB found himself delighted with a number of them. The Grilled Spicy Eel with Sichuan Pepper Sauce was one of them. Who would have thought this dish would worked so harmoniously? The flavours really completed each other and really heightened the taste of the dish. Be warned of the spicy pepper though!

The Diced Cod Fish with Dried Chilli was also another dish that hits all the right notes with HFB. Nice coated and deep fried to a crisp, the dried chilli really lifted the flavours of the cod fish.

One can’t really leave Si Chuan Dou Hua or in fact any Sichuan restaurant without savouring their Sliced Pork in Garlic and Chilli Sauce, 蒜泥白肉 (top right) unless one have a hot date right after the meal. This is awesomeness disguised in a dish that is packed full with flavours from the very aromatic garlic. Not forgetting the hint of spiciness that brings the dish to its fullness. Absolutely delightful!

Although HFB is not an avid supporter of sour dishes, the Chilled Sliced Radish wrapped with Sliced Carrot was a crowd favourite especially with the ladies. This labour intensive dish was a refreshing appetiser that ensures diner’s palate is ready for the other dishes ahead.

Also made available for tasting was the “Imperial High Tea”, and HFB really took delight with the Deep Fried Yam with Glutinous Rice Roll. The light subtle flavour from the yam was very smoothing and it marriage really well with the savoury of peanuts and Chinese sausage within. Not to mention brilliantly executed too!

The Steamed Dumpling with Dried Seafood was definitely well-suited for a savoury person like HFB. The skin was of the right thickness and packed rich with seafood goodness within.

Look out how cute these Deep Fried Potato Fritters are! Lovely wasn’t it?

Nothing beats having homemade noodles. Si Chuan Dou Hua’s Dan Dan Noodles was really smooth and cooked to the right texture and the sauce was lip-smacking delicious!

The Pumpkin Pan Cake was an apt finish to a really high quality meal. The skin is soft without being too chewy and the filling within is not overly sweet, and suits HFB tastebuds. And how can you not fall in love with the lovely cute pumpkin balls???

Of course one can never leave Si Chuan Dou Hua without their signatured Soy Beancurd with Wolfberries, and neither could HFB.

May HFB add that their hand towel smells very nice too from lemongrass infusion? Very refreshing!!! Heh.
