A thank you to Yardley Kyling from Chefs Gallery and Thang Ngo from Noodlies for organising and inviting me to the launch of the Chefs Gallery new winter menu. I felt like I had collapsed and went to dumpling heaven and above me were several cute little angel piggies floating around awaiting to be eaten. Thou shall not squeal no more my oh so dear delicious piggies! buahahaha

beautifully presented and served with ice cream.
|Trillium prawn dumplings|
Besides the trillium prawn dumplings, the peking duck wrapped inside a roti was my other favourite. I heart a lot of food dishes but one thing but one thing that will always be on my top 5 list is peking duck. So in a way yeah I am kind of biased but most things with peking duck taste so succulent and juicy so when you add the peking duck and hosin sauce and roti - how can you not! nom nom nom

|Steamed chicken thigh fillet with sticky rice|
The sticky rice with the steamed chicken was another winner of the day! It was simple as there were only a few ingredients but it tastes better than your typical sticky rice that get at most Chinese restaurants. The chicken was unbelievably tender and there wasn't too much soy sauce where it would have destroyed the whole dish. It comes with a shot of soy sauce, I didn't add it so that could probably be why lol.

As you probably have figured by now I had problems eating this dish because it was too cute to destroy!! I couldn't destroy their home and I most definitely couldn't murder my piggies. boohooo but the dish was getting cold and it had to be eaten =P
Overall, I'd thought that Chefs Gallery had given quite some thought in developing their new menu. I mean even the piggies got a new home and it looks much better than their old boring steamed basket. Would definitely be returning for more pig squishing fun!
Gotta go eat!!
