Pin Si, A Jewel In The North (品食)

I was first introduced to this restaurant by my students. They’d suggested going to Safra Yishun for a Rifle Shooting Session + lunch @ Pin Si Restaurant after their class graduated. It was a treat from them & these were what we had.

I went to Pin Si with very low expectation, maybe because it’s a neighbourhood eatery. But I was totally blown away with the quality standard. The XO Prawn with Celery, Peking Duck, Tofu with Pork Floss & Pork Ribs were actually quite good, which led me to my 2nd visit.

Review Picked as Editor's Choice @ OpenRice S'pore

This time, their promotional Set Menu @ S$68++/pax attracted my attention:
Chef Signature Salad

Braised Home-made Spinach Beancurd
with Ling Zhi Mushroom

Pan-fried Glutinous Rice with Conpoy & Chciken

Dessert of the Day

Dishes that impressed & warrant my future visits for more:

The Braised Superior Shark’s Fin in Superior Stock was of high benchmark, comparable to many 5-star restaurants. I was stupefied by the rich tasty stock & the big chunks of Shark’s Fin.

I also ordered their 2-head Abalone aside from their Set Menu & it was so delicious that it rocked my palate! Thumbs-up!

Their Fresh Scallops & Prawn Balls sautéed with Asparagus was another reason why I went back. The aroma of this spicy XO dish filled our noses before our taste buds hit the note.

So if you’re living in the North of S’pore or running out of places to eat in town, be sure to hop over to the gem.
