    Lei Garden's the grand dame of Cantonese fine dining restaurants and one of the heavyweights in the power business lunch circuit. Nestled within the beautifully restored Chijmes cathedral, this well-known Hongkong-based restaurant is one of two overseas outlets. Even with its stellar reputation, it is refreshing that Lei Garden manages an unpretentious and boisterous ambience.

    We ate:

    1) Black Fungus with Vinegar. This was refreshing and zesty.

    2) Double-Boiled Pork Ribs Soup ($28):delicate but full-bodied soup

    3) Pan-Fried Carrot Cake ($4.80): soft

    4) Baked Mini Egg Tarts ($4.30), a buttery flaky pastry with a wobbly and smooth egg custard within

    5) Crispy Roasted Pork ($28) decadently good

      Yesh… Finally got a chance to taste the only-heard-of Lei Garden food @ CHIJMES without burning a hole in my wallet. It’s a conference closing dinner. I will love to miss it but for Lei Garden, I cannot say NO.

      The ambience is classy, we had a VIP Room booked on the 2nd Floor. They have one Waitress solely to serve us. Good service. She pay lots of attention on us (Yeah, I know its her job, but not all staff are like her).

      Food - Its more that what I am expecting. Looking at the specially designed menu for us, a price of SGD85 per head, the food name is simple, peking duck, deep fried conpoy, mango dessert with sago…. But the presentation and taste of the dishes are exquisitly delicious!!!! Can see that the Chef really puts in his heart to design and prepare the food. My favourite dish is the Crispy Rice soaked in Soup and the Doubled Boiled Quail Soup. The Crispy Rice is interesting as they deep fried the rice and then pour it into the soup with some cooked rice in it. Hence, there is a mix of crispy and soft rice. :) While for the doubled boiled quail soup, the taste is strong and smooth. Making one feels like having 2nd and 3rd helpings.
