Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) brings back its signature Dumpling Festival Package, which consists of an assortment of five distinct dumplings filled with premium ingredients.
A collaboration of five celebrity chef restaurants at RWS: Feng Shui Inn, Forest, Tangerine, Syun and Osia Steak and Seafood Grill, the dumplings bear the respective restaurant’s signature culinary style.
This year, celebrity chef Sam Leong and his culinary team at Forest have created a flavourful X.O. Dumpling with Seafood. Glutinous rice is soaked in chicken stock and stir-fried with a housemade sweet-spicy X.O. sauce.
Wrapped within the rice is a mixture of seafood including dried oyster, scallop and sea whelk. Meanwhile, Feng Shui Inn’s New Territories Village Traditional Rice Dumpling teeming with a whole 10-head abalone from Australia, pork belly, fermented red beancurd paste, roast pork, black fungus and salted egg, is complemented with a homemade superior soya sauce.
Meat lovers will enjoy Osia Steak and Seafood Grill’s Spiced Beef Cheek Dumpling. It is packed with tender Australian grass-fed beef cheeks slow-braised in a housemade five spice concoction, complete with aromatic herbs and vegetables.
Tangerine’s Organic Grains, Lotus Seed & Seaweed Dumpling features barley, brown rice and quinoa cooked in kombu stock, and mixed with steamed lotus seeds. Rich in protein, fibre and minerals, this is a healthier alternative to the traditional meatier versions. Syun’s Japanese-inspired Unagi Dumpling presents a rich, umami-laden option – this version comprises Japanese mochi-gome, or sticky rice married with Japanese eel and shiitake mushrooms flavoured with teriyaki sauce and sansho pepper.
Presented in a three-tiered bamboo steamer, which is also reusable and convenient for easy reheating, RWS’ Dumpling Festival Package ($98) is an ideal gift for family, friends or business associates. The set of five dumplings is only available for takeaway from now till June 15 (collection is until June 18 at Feng Shui Inn). Advance order of three working days is required.
