Four Seasons Chinese Restaurant, Capitol Piazza: “World’s Best Roast Duck” from UK now in Singapore

four seasons roast duck singapore reviewSome has named London’s Four Seasons Chinese Restaurant for best roast duck in the world. When I was in London, I tried it and like that lor. So so lor. It was nice, but not spectacular. But when the duck flies to Singapore, will it still best in the world?

The roast duck wasn’t the best roast duck in the world, but it was decent. Subtle herbs, tender yet with a bite at the same time. If we don’t compare the roast duck with some hawkers in Singapore, the duck itself was quite delicious.

And the fried rice in lotus leaf ($28, below) was my favorite and best dish–wok hei with the aroma of lotus leaf. A pity it was oily, the grains stuck together, and the prawns were atomized.

four seasons restaurant singaporeI’ve heard people complaining that Four Seasons Restaurant in Singapore is terrible. It’s about managing expectations. I’ve been to the London flagship so I knew what to expect. Also: this is a Chinese restaurant that came from an angmoh country–why would anyone have so high expectations for it?

We were satisfied with both the meal and the service. Since we were the only table around, we were looked after very well. We paid $105 for two persons. Overpriced.
