Imperial Reunion Dinner - Chinese New Year (2016) at Summer Palace (Regent Singapore)

This Lunar New Year (2016), Summer Palace at the Regent Singapore (also my favourite pet hotel in Singapore!) is presenting an Imperial Reunion Dinner for one night only. The night of feasting will feature a lavish spread of Chinese New Year delicacies at the Regent Singapore's Royal Pavilion Ballroom as an imperial palace feast experience will be recreated. Here's what to expect from the Imperial Reunion Dinner at Regent Singapore which is happening on 07 February 2016 (Sunday) from 630PM.

The extensive Imperial Feast starts off with an auspicious Smoked Salmon Prosperity Toss - a staple in almost every reunion dinner in Singapore. I love how beautiful and neat it is - they remind me of small mountains! The smoked salmon also resembles flowers - this is truly quite a feast for your eyes and your tummy.

Summer Palace's version of the Mini Buddha Jump Over The Wall is packed with delicious prized ingredients. What really steals the show though, is that delicious broth underneath it all. I love how rich and flavourful it is without being overly heavy (something many restaurants are unable to do).

What's interesting about the Imperial Reunion Dinner though is the unlimited servings of canapes that you can help yourself to throughout the dinner. Before you go ahead and call it a buffet (although technically it is), it is important to note that the canapes only serve to complement the meal and not replace it instead. Some of my personal favourite dishes include the Crispy Fish Skin with Salted Egg Yolk, Braised Dried Oyster with Mushrooms and Sea Moss, Fried Glutinous Rice with Baby Abalone, Dried Shrimp and Cured Meat as well as the Crispy Mini Bun Served with Chili Crab Meat Sauce. 

Roasted Peking Duck 'Live' Station Summer Palace - Regent Singapore

What's more exciting for me personally however is the Roasted Peking Duck 'Live' Station where you can get unlimited servings of this delicious dish. It is also strangely therapeutic to watch how the chef cut through the crispy skin of the duck so effortlessly and elegantly. Condiments are provided separately in case you do not enjoy them as much. 

Steamed Soon Hock in Light Soya Sauce Summer Palace - Regent Singapore

This simple looking Steamed Soon Hock in Light Soya Sauce has to be my favourite dish from the night (although the Peking Duck is a close second) of tasting. I actually love that it's elegantly cooked and displayed - little needs to be done when your quality ingredients are fresh.

Stewed Ee Fu Noodle with Crab Meat, Shredded Mushroom and Chive Summer Palace - Regent Singapore

Finally, for the final bit of carbohydrate before desserts (also from the buffet spread), the Stewed Ee Fu Noodle with Crab Meat, Shredded Mushroom and Chive. The first thing you will notice is how generous the serving of crab meat actually is. The question on everyone's mind right now must be 'how much does it cost exactly then?'. For just S$138++ per person, you will be able to enjoy this very special Imperial Reunion Dinner at the Regent Singapore.
