The Place I am constantly on the lookout for the best Peking Duck in Singapore and I have heard much about the high culinary standards at Hua Ting Restaurant. As one of the most renowned Cantonese restaurants in Singapore, Hua Ting is located at level 2 of Orchard Hotel and it has a very traditional Chinese yet modern interior setting. It is recommended to make your reservations early, especially if you are planning to order the Peking Duck.
The Food We ordered the Whole Peking Duck ($76), where you can choose to do the wrapping of the Peking Duck skin yourself or by the service staff. Unlike other restaurants, the Peking Duck was not presented to us before it was sliced for some reasons, which kept me guessing how big my duck was exactly. Not surprisingly, the serving of the Peking Duck was quite small I must profess, considering that I ordered the Whole Duck. It was barely enough for 2 people.
I must say that I was disappointed with the standard of the Peking Duck at Hua Ting. The taste of the Peking Duck skin as well as the meat is a notch less than the Peking Duck from Imperial Treasure Super Peking Duck Restaurant or Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant.
Will I return again? Definitely not for the Peking Duck. I might return to try the Dim Sum instead the next time round.
