Mott 32, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore
I miss HK a lot, particularly Mott 32. Named after one of my favorite streets in Chinatown, NYC, Mott 32’s dimsum and barbecue meats are quintessential to HK trips, bar none.
So if you’re in Singapore, might as well stop by Mott 32 at Marina Bay Sands.
Barbecue Pluma Iberico Pork, Yellow Mountain Honey – SGD 48
First on your list should be the Barbecue Pluma Iberico Pork, drizzled with Yellow Mountain Honey. I thought it was reminiscent of the Wagyu Char Siew at Ho Lee Fook (also a HK local delight), though a bit on the sweeter side because of the honey.
Also, the Soft Quail Egg, Iberico Pork, Black Truffle Siu Mai (SGD 9 / 2 pieces)
The truffle oil was just right, and the soft boiled quail egg in the center was explosive. I had to eat this very quickly, or the soft boiled egg was going to harden soon.
And finally my favorite Cheung Fan, stuffed with prawn and crispy rice paper (SGD 18). The plump shrimps were so, so good. Even better than the Char Siew, in my opinion.
The Apple Wood Roasted 42 days Peking Duck, “Signature Mott 32 Cut” (SGD 108), needs to be ordered 2 weeks – 1 month in advance. At the moment, the queue is intensely long, so best to book early.
