As most savvy travellers and knowledgeable gourmets known, Singapore is one the globe’s most revered fine dining destinations, supplying the best cuisine from around the world as a matter of routine. It’s probably fair to say that great food is more than a national pastime; it is part of the island-nation’s identity.
Whatever taste and whim dictates, you’ll find it in Singapore, from haute cuisine to local specialities. And there’s no doubt that you’ll find any number of establishments specializing in Asian cookery, but few, if any, have managed to reach the kind of heights that Peach Garden @ 33 seems ever so comfortable inhabiting.
Rather than bringing a hotel kind of experience to their valued diners, they seem to have jettisoned the impersonal and kept all the best bits of their collective knowledge. Peach Garden @ 33 is obviously a result of a passion for people, food and good living. This is made evident the moment you arrive in any of the restaurants, where you’re quickly made to feel welcome. Personal service is high on the list of qualities which have landed the trio of restaurants on many coveted lists for fine dining, including being awarded top spots in Singapore Tatler and Wine and Dine Magazine.
Angela Ho and Veronica Tan’s approach is very hands-on. If you haven’t been warmly welcomed and seated by either one personally, it’s because they’re at one of the other branches and will be around soon to make sure that all is well, that diners are happily awaiting their next course from the magnificent menu of traditional and modern Cantonese delicacies. This rare sense that each diner is important simply because they have a passion for exceptional food is all the more charming for its contrast with the typically chic and elegant dining rooms.
Warm tones and furnishings with oriental accents are stylishly contrasted with beautiful tableware and crisp white linens, while a judicious inclusion of art and artefacts help set the stage for Cantonese cuisine that takes from rich tradition and fine tunes it for the experienced 21st century eatery.
Great service, elegantly attired and well informed staff, and the general air of sophistication are certainly part of the appeal, but the menus are the main event. Set menus are the way to go, and you’ll find a wide choice depending on the number of your party. Signature dishes like the Double-Boiled Shark’s Bone Cartilage Soup and Roast Pork Cube might sway a table one way, although each of the menus offers myriad delights from the first steaming course to the final note of sugary conclusion.
Those partial to the rare wonders of perfectly roasted Peking Duck will find it an inspiring prelude to other marvellous morsels like Deep-Fried Stuffed Scallop with Salted Egg Yolk and Broccoli, to name just one of the courses that each reveal themselves like gifts to the table.
The reputation of the food and the service of Peach Garden @ 33 is such that it has become one of the country’s most prestigious venues for special events. From dignitaries and figures of trade and industry, to special occasions of every variety, Veronica and Angela have turned their banqueting experience to great advantage for all who hope to mark their important occasion with the many desirable qualities of Peach Garden @ 33.
Those who have something different in mind, perhaps a venue of their own, can take advantage of Peach Garden’s equally covetable catering. Able to lend the same bright efficiency and wonderful food to just about any amenable location in Singapore, it’s little surprise to discover that the catering side of the business is in high demand. Those who don’t want to miss out better plan their event well in advance.
No matter whether you’re enjoying a romantic meal for two, hope to disarm corporate clients with the finest Cantonese food in the Singapore, have a birthday party planned for someone special, or hope to bring that specific Peach Garden magic into your own home, it is part and parcel of the spirit of these very special restaurants, and the women who have created them, to bring a combination of personal service and unrivalled adventures in flavour to all who share a passion for good living through fine food
