Review

 Since opening in 1992, Hua Ting has been the gold standard when it comes to Chinese fine-dining hotel restaurants. After it recently underwent a multimillion-dollar makeover, chef Lap Fai has also given the menu a complete overhaul, complete with new signatures including chilled marinated South African baby abalone with Japanese sake; spiky sea cucumber and organic black garlic; steamed fresh crab claw with egg white, spring onion and ginger purée; and stuffed crispy suckling pig with prawn paste and foie gras. But mainstays remain, such as the roasted duck and its wafer-crisp skin and succulent meat. These can be paired with premium grade teas inspired by the four seasons. With the new presentation, some of the dishes are served individually, while the wine list is very budget-friendly— all of which makes this a good venue for business entertainment. Ippoh Tempura offers an interactive tempura experience for the discerning diner, where each morsel of food is prepared to order. The thin and even Osaka-style batter and the use of 100 per cent safflower oil results in a lighter and fluffier tempura compared to the others on the market. One of the restaurant’s most highly rated dishes, the live prawn with shiso leaf, benefits from this light touch—the delicate balance of flavours comes alive in the mouth, making it worthy of a repeat order. The sea urchin tempura with caviar is another dish delicately prepared to show off the quality of the ingredients, allowing the diner to savour the many layers of textures and flavours in one bite. Complete the meal with somen noodles prepared with sudachi zest for a comforting, refreshing finale.

TATLER TIP

Unbeknownst to many, chef Lap Fai handpicked the tea selection for the new tea pairing programme. After ordering your dishes, ask the servers to invite the chef out to personally recommend the best tea to complement your food.
