Lately, I’ve been eating so much dim sum that I’m now practically Chinese. Lucky for me, I love dim sum so it’s not an issue. While staying at the St. Regis hotel in Singapore, I visited their Yan Ting restaurant for a dim sum brunch. You can also read about their Italian restaurant here.
I’ve actually never had this type of dim sum brunch. It reminded me of afternoon tea because they had free-flow champagne. This is always a nice touch! Of course, I also had to order tea which they’re always so good at refilling. During dim sum meals, I always drink way too much tea because they never stop refilling. I don’t know why, but I can’t stop drinking when they keep filling up my cup.
The dining room was absolutely filled with people. I don’t think I saw one empty table which is always a good sign. I think I might’ve been the only westerner in the entire restaurant, which is also a good sign when you’re eating dim sum because it means it has an authentic taste. Dim sum menus are quite large so I simply went through and chose all of my favorites. I didn’t go too crazy because I had a very large meal the night before at their Italian restaurant called La Brezza.
There were too many dishes to talk about them all, but I will highlight a few of my favorites. Obviously the typical dim sum dumplings were great. These are typically great in most places. What set this meal apart had to be the assorted meat plate. These were some of the most tasty and juicy meets that I have had. Seriously, they were on fire, so tasty and good, I loved it!
The other very memorable part of the experience were the desserts. The one that really caught my attention was a ball that was covered in sesame seeds. To be honest, I can’t recall the name but it was something very authentic Chinese. The service staff recommended it to me and dear lord was it amazing! The texture was crispy and beautiful on the outside, yet soft and warm on the inside, just like Pierre. Super tasty and heartwarming. Wink.
All in all, the meal at Yan Ting was on point, as I would expect. Judging from the quality of the rest of the hotel, I just knew that it would be great. The dining room was gorgeous, the food was magnificent and the staff was so very kind. If you’re looking for a fantastic place to have Cantonese food while in Singapore, I would recommend you to visit Yan Ting inside of the St. Regis hotel!
