Helmed by master chef Mr. Julian Tam Kwok Fai, Wo Peng Restaurant is well-known for being the founder of Singapore’s Poon Choy, so diners can expect a fair bit of technical flair in their dishes. Of course, the restaurant serves a nice smattering of clean Cantonese dishes using mostly premium ingredients that retains the familiar taste that we are used to.

WOPENG ‘Poon Choy” Braised Whole Abalone with Assorted Dried Seafood in Casserole

Befitting the practice of Cantonese cuisine, casseroling the dish draws out the quintessential sweetness and ultimacy of flavour from the 13 premium ingredients – abalone, conpoy, pattern shitake, fresh prawn, sea cucumber, fish maw, dried oyster, black moss, broccoli, pig tender, roasted pork, pig skin, tianjin cabbage – and making them moist, tender, and seasoned throughout. Wo Peng offers special price for dine in S$38.00++ per person with a minimum of 2 persons. (Usual price S$56.00++ for one person).

Prosperity Salmon Yu-sheng Organic Garden Greens with Crispy Fish Skin

Better to be safe than sorry? Wo Peng regards the recent incidents with seriousness therefore the vegetarian salmon Yu Sheng. Brought in especially from Japanese, the vegetarian salmon has a taste akin to the real thing, and is served in Japanese restaurants to their diners. The tactical addition of fried fish skin contributes a pleasing crunch to the otherwise delicate dish.

Double-boiled Whole Chicken Stuffed with Glutinous and Ginseng Soup

Double-boiling soup is the definition of minimalist Cantonese cooking, combined with a slight complexity. The soup tasted almost supernaturally good: hearty, herbaceous, spiked with nectareous scent of glutinous rice. Double-boiling gently cooks the ingredients, especially the Kampong chicken, until meltingly tender and also creates a complex flavour from a handful of basic ingredients.

Wok-Fried Glutinous Rice with Assorted Chinese Sausages

Frying spongy, chewy glutinous rice together with sapid lap cheong allows the rice to reach a certain level of fragrance and fried shallots definitely helps in the textural and flavour department.

Sautéed “Peach Resin” with Egg White and Green Vegetables

Peach Resin (also known as Peach Gum), which are sap retrieved from peach tree comes with a texture that resembles century egg, is stir-fried with egg white and then placed on top of fresh greens. If unaware, it’ll be hard to tell that there are untold amounts of collagen hiding in the bundles of soft resin.

Smoked and Roasted Duck with Camphor and Chinese Tea Leaves

Immaculately infused with tea leaves, then roasted with patience, the tender-enough duck meat dish would be a pleasant addition to your Chinese New Year dinner.

Hong Kong Nian Gao & Fa Cai Carrot Cake

Every order of glutinous rice cake are freshly made with coconut batter, so you can be sure that you’ll be able to have it crisp on the outside and soft and sticky on the inside. Radishes are evenly distributed within every bite of the carrot cake, which are slowly pan-fried on low heat to retain the mushiness within. Both available for takeaway.

The restaurant is open for business throughout the month. For Chinese New Year set menus, visit www.wopeng.com.sg.
