Hua Ting is one of the oldest Chinese restaurants in Singapore. And the food is excellent, in terms of execution and freshness. It's traditional Chinese food, served exquisitely in appropriate portions. Service is impeccable. This is the place you would like to take guests to if you wanted to impress.
Assorted dim sum. Of course these arrived in lovely bamboo steamers, which I then placed on my plate. From left - chicken pie, prawn roll and carrot cake. The chicken pie was EXCELLENT. The pastry was delicate and slightly sweet. Not flakey, rather it was soft and melted in my mouth. The chicken filling was just right, and contrasted well with the pastry. The carrot cake was delicious, with the perfect ratio of egg and crunchy radish. It was well-fried, with a heavenly aroma of wok hei. The prawn roll was crispy and not oily, with a juicy prawn in the centre.
Roast Goose, one of the restaurant's specialities. It was tender and juicy, with a crisp light skin. Nice.
