When a humble tomato has heirloom as part of its name, you can be sure to expect a one-of-a-kind gastronomical experience upon tasting it.
From August 15 to September 30, Min Jiang at One-North will be introducing the heirloom tomato in a special appetiser platter. Prized for their intense flavour, these tomatoes also come in a variety of shapes and colours, and make for an aesthetically unique dish.
Heirloom Tomato Appetiser Platter
Created by Master Chef Goh Chee Koh, the Heirloom Tomato Appetiser Platter, $28++, is a visually enticing arrangement of four different interpretations of the heirloom tomato paired with deluxe ingredients to bring out its intrinsic sweetness.
Start off your meal with the Marinated King Crab Salad, served in a sweet and juicy tomato which complements the tangy bits of green apple and creamy mayonnaise perfectly, followed by the Steamed Pork Dumpling with Yunnan Ham-Infused Tomato Broth which is a light yet richly-flavoured dish made from minced pork and turnip, deep-fried then steamed.
After which, dig into the Baked US Wagyu Beef in Tomato where the flavour of the juicy cubes of tender premium beef is brought out by the delicate sweetness of the tomato, and then try the Deep-Fried Prawn Roll with Tomato Salsa – a mixture of minced prawn, onion and tomato wrapped in filo pastry and deep fried, served with a zesty salsa.
Those who prefer more meat in their diet will delight in the restaurant’s Legendary Wood-Fired Crispy and Juicy Beijing Duck, $45++ for half, or $90++ for a whole bird.
Prepared according to an ancient Chinese recipe by chefs from China, the ducks are freshly delivered every day and marinated and stuffed with vegetables and a secret combination of special Chinese herbs, before being roasted in a custom-made apple wood-fired oven.
If you’re looking to try some top-notch Chinese food, both traditional and with a modern twist, Min Jiang at One-North will not disappoint.
The Heirloom Tomato Appetiser Platter is available at Min Jiang at One-North for $28++ per person. From August 15 to September 30, pay for only three platters with every four ordered.
