“In Sichuan, a bowl of dou hua, or silken beancurd, is a symbol of welcome offered to guests in homes and we wanted to offer the same welcoming experience to our diners in the restaurant. This heartwarming restaurant has been with us since 1996, renowned for its Sichuan and Cantonese cuisines. We are familiar with their classic signatures such as suckling pig, dim sum, fine teas and nutritiously packed doubled boiled soups. Besides the widely known flavor, the “mala” (Tongue-numbing spiciness), go on an educational flavor tour with their 100 savory dishes with the recently introduced One Gastronomic Feast At Si Chuan Dou Hua.
This PARKROYAL on One Gastronomic Feast At Si Chuan Dou Hua is offered at ParkRoyal On Beach Road. Do not be confused with the outlet at ParkRoyal on Kitchener Road. At ParkRoyal Beach Road, they have another restaurant Ginger which we visited for the Crab Buffet recently.

Chilled Sliced Radish in Sweet and Sour Sauce
This did an excellent job in cleansing your palate! It worked very well as an effective appetizer as well due to its sourish nature. You may like to start off with this as a preparation step for the feasting and have this as a go-between as you go along the gastronomic journey so that you are able to savour the true flavour of every single dish.
Fresh Prawns in Tomato Sauce
Prawns are fresh, succulent and most importantly without shells. Enjoy digging in straight away without having any extra efforts needed to be made to remove the shells. Great pairing with the not too overly sweet, yet thick tomato sauce. We could still taste the subtle sweetness from the prawns. Thumbs up.
Its good that not everything is spicy, thus it caters to those who do not take spicy food or even children making it great for families.
Deep fried fish fillet in Tomato Sauce
A crispy one. Who doesn’t love fried food? Fried perfectly and just the right portion. Great on its own or paired with the sauce. The flour and fish were well proportioned.
Its great that the sauce was not all over the fried fish so that diners can choose how they wanted to pair this with the sauce.
Fresh Scallops with Sichuan Pepper and Minced Spring Onion Sauce
Fresh juicy scallops, we love how its being paired up with a light pepper and spring onion sauce. Chewy and moist scallops infused with the non overpowering spring onions. Very subtle and light. Natural sweetness from the scallops gave it the unique flavour.
Glutinous Rice Balls with Red Bean Paste
Unfortunately, we did not had a liking for this dessert. The Glutinous Rice was a bit too dry and does not have the fragrance from the red bean. Probably reinventing this player into a soup version would have been a better choice so that both flavours can be more infused and creating a better combination as a whole.
Nonetheless, it is really an eye opener and a great feast. There are vegetables, seafood, pork, duck, desserts etc. The variety at One Gastronomic Feast At Si Chuan Dou Hua is simply stunning. Be spoilt for choice and not knowing which to start or end with. Definitely a cost worthy buffet where you get to try so many different flavours in small quantities across all the flavours (Sweet, Spicy, Sour, etc).
Now we know that Sichuan is not all about MaLa and Spiciness!
