The China Club

Birthdays are such good excuses to indulges in different places, this time we chose The China Club which we had the chance to visit for once. (this is a membership restaurant)

The China Club Singapore is an elegant, members-only club, built atop the 52nd floor of Singapore’s premium commercial tower, The Capital Tower, located in the Central Business District. The Club is surrounded by 16 metre-tall glass with perhaps the most spectacular views across Singapore. On a clear day, Malaysia and Indonesia can be glimpsed.

since we are at the China club, so a strong sense of “chinese” flavor was in the setup be it their furnishing or table settings.

Dinner Set A consists of :

Stewed napa lettuce with stock and dried scallop

china club

china club
steamed fish with light soy sauce.

china club
sliced abalone with mushroom and spinach.

china club
seafood udon

china club
ice cream with mashed sweet potato

Dinner Set B consists of :

china club
Pan fried foie gras.

china club
Stewed soup.

china club
King prawn (can’t remember the exact ingredients)

china club
Steamed fish with black beans.

china club
braised whole black abalone.

china club
rice in stock with seafood.

china club
Assorted fruit platter.

There were some hits and misses in the set dinners we got. The foie gras was cold in the middle but the abalone were cooked very well. The dessert was pretty special in my opinion too. It was a place that I wanted to try for sometime and I got to check it out, if I ever want to head there in the future again I would likely stick to the ala carte.

    @jin: haha, but your posts are all great and love those photos of yours! My photos have been lacking in form recently. I guess writing on my blog has become a hobby that I can’t kick off nowadays, brings me away from the dry technical work but all these are coming to an end.
