The Han Room, The Gardens Mall
In conjunction with the Gastro Go campaign happening at The Gardens Mall right now, The Han Room's Chef Justin Hor served up a storm at a private luncheon for media.
The Han Room was previously located on the Ground Floor of The Gardens Mall but it has recently relocated to the Third Floor.
I loved the interior. Very classy but still staying true to its oriental roots.
I got my own placard!

Our menu for the day.
This wasn't on the menu but it was some iced lettuce leaves from Hokkaido cooked in a citrusy sauce.
This cute little "mushroom" is actually a bao. The chef sprinkled some cocoa powder on top of it to give it a mushroom look. Inside was a juicy chicken and mushroom filling.
This was a water chestnut pancake. Very tasty and interesting texture.
This was the glutinous rice bun topped with char siew. It was as rich as you can imagine.
Here are the cutesy "piggy" buns to go with the Peking duck. Aesthetically pleasing but standard in taste. However, the Peking duck sauce definitely stood out.
When we were told we would be served fish, I didn't expect it to look like this but it was pleasant to have our fish served in a paste form and tucked into clam shells.
The beef ribs were an easy favourite to many present at the tasting.
But personally I loved the egg noodles with duck the best.
Dessert was so refreshing and it looked great too!
Here are he crystal longevity buns. Chinese people sure like to eat stuff related to longevity and prosperity...
Overall, the experience was great. It's great to see a restaurant under the Oriental Group break away from tradition and serve up a brand spanking new menu that is creative yet staying true to Asian roots.
