Lime Restaurant, PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering: Lobster Laksa to take 2021 by the horns

Last Updated: February 3, 2021

Written by Nicole Lam

PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering is somewhat of an architectural marvel; a shimmering urban oasis spilling over with plants from every crevice that makes my millennial heart sing. Besides being a poster child for Architectural Digest, PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering also houses Lime Restaurant, a stalwart in the dining scene and famous for their All-you-can-eat Lobsterfest.

Well, Lime Restaurant has certainly outdone themselves this Chinese New Year. After all, whenever Chinese New Year means feasting until you have to quietly and unceremoniously unbutton your pants from all that glorious food.

What I tried 

Sze Chuan pepper infused Pork chop from Lime Restaurant Parkroyal Collection Pickering 4

It starts with the Feast of Fortune, a bountiful spread of Lunar New Year classics to usher in the year of the Ox. There’s the Pan Seared Szechuan Pepper-Infused Pork Chop that promises a hearty and tongue-numbing kick. I loved how tender each sliver of pork was, and the trademark tingling mala sensation was a great introduction to what the Feast of Fortune has in store for me.

The ever-abundant Steamed Glutinous Rice with Assorted Waxed Meat Wrapped in Lotus Leaf is sure to leave you rubbing your tummy. The glutinous rice comes chock-full of earthy mushrooms, tasty morsels of Chinese sausage that will require second and even third helpings.

Elsewhere, there’s a Szechuan Chicken with Matcha Soba Noodles which would make for an interesting lunch for those who want something adventurous this year.

Of course, classic dishes never go out of style—you can always count on the tender Rock Salt Oven Baked Free Range Chicken for a supple, savoury bite. When it comes to any chicken dish, a good barometer would be the breast meat. We all know how finicky breast meat can be, threatening to turn into cardboard if we’re not careful, but this one was soft and oh-so-flavourful.

If not, the Roasted Beef in Natural Jus is just that touch of luxury, we all need this Chinese New Year. Lime Restaurant has got you covered for those who want to take a deep dive under the sea.

You can look forward to the ever-popular Seafood on Ice or the Three Taste Prawn with Edamame Peas to suit your fancy. Plus, you’ll also receive a complimentary Yu Sheng Platter (Small) when you dine in groups of five adults or more.

Durian Pengat Lime Restaurant Parkroyal Collection Pickering 20

A feast is not complete without the sweet treats, and the ever-delectable Durian Pengat with Gula Melaka is sure to delight. A godsend for all durian lovers made with liberal lashings of coconut milk; each spoonful was rich and fragrant.

If not, have your hand at their colourful Rainbow Cake made with a light-as-air sponge that is easy on the eyes and the stomach will do very well.

Lime Restaurant’s Joyful Reunions is the right kind of glitz and glamour for those who want the Bling Empire treatment. We can’t have all the sparkles every day. Similarly, Joyful Reunions is only available on Chinese New Year Eve, 12 to 14, & 26 February 2021, so make sure you plan ahead.

No Chinese New Year is complete without the showstopper that is the Buddha Jumps over the Wall (one serving per guest) filled with Sea Cucumber, Fried Fish Maw and Dried Scallops. At Lime Restaurant, you’ll get a little bit of everything, so there’s no need to squabble over who gets the last bit abalone.

Then, you have to indulge in PARKROYAL COLLECTION’s signature Pickering Lobster Laksa, here you’ll find a succulent half-lobster luxuriating in a rich and piquant gravy.

At first glance, it might seem like a rather petite portion, but oh my, does that creamy, coconutty gravy pay off. As one of Lime Restaurant’s specialities, you won’t want to miss this. Do note that this deluxe bowl of laksa is only available during dinner, so come hungry.

Steamed Seabass with Kim Hwa Ham from Lime Restaurant Parkroyal Collection Pickering 12

For those with a penchant for seafood, you’ll be pleased with the spread of fresh Sashimi Sankan and Cold Seafood Platter that is sure to satisfy. I particularly enjoyed the Steamed Seabass with Kim Hwa Ham, where you get a flaky serving fish in a light soy sauce. It’s simplicity at its best.

Braised Premium Pot from Lime Restaurant Parkroyal Collection Pickering 7

Just to make your meal even better, you’ll also get to enjoy Braised Premium Pot (except for lunch on the 11 February 2021). Served as individual portions, each bowl comes replete with treasures from the sea.

With the likes of mushroom, golden oyster, sea cucumber, fish maw, roasted pork and sliced jade abalone, I’d reckon it’s mandatory you lick the bowl clean.

It’s hard to resist a good deal, and with every five or more paying adults, you can toss to a more auspicious 2021 with a complimentary Prosperity Yusheng.

Hold on, and it gets better. Lime Restaurant offers Free Flow Fever where you have Bottomless Beverage add-on, so I’m talking about wine, Prosecco, and beer with prices starting from S$25.

For those that want to channel their inner Martha Stewart, Lime Restaurant is here to help you out without breaking a sweat. Lime Restaurant’s E-Shop will deliver all these New year delicacies right to your door. Adorn your table with the must-haves such as the Reunion Pencai and Prosperity Yu Sheng as well as Carrot Cake with Preserved Meat and Braised Golden Oyster with Broccoli—yes, it’s a party alright.

Final thoughts

Chinese New Year might feel a little different this year, but it is a celebration, nonetheless. Lime Restaurant at PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering keeps the spirit and traditions alive by reminding us of the best part of Chinese New Year—sharing a superb meal and enjoying each other’s company.
