Dim Sum



Xin Tian Di serves premium Cantonese dim sum. The quality and authenticity are ensured by no less than the restaurant's Hong Kong-born Executive Chinese Chef Peter Yeung. The a la carte menu features a variety of steamed and fried dumplings, rolls, and buns.



Steamed Pork Dumpling with Crab Roe (Shumai) - Xin Tian Di's shumai are firm, chewy, yet juicy. The dumpling must have been made with more pork meat. The crab roe added umami taste to the shumai. Each order includes five pieces of shumai.   



Steamed Shrimp Dumpling (Har Gao) - Those translucent dumplings are filled with plump and juicy shrimps which tasted fresh and sweet. We recommend adding a bit of chili-garlic paste to enhance the taste of the dumpling. Each order comes with five pieces of har gao.



Fried Radish Cake - We requested the radish cakes to have a toasted crunch. The inside is soft but not mushy, just the way we like them. Minced Chinese sausage is mixed in the radish cakes to add umami to the taste. We also loved the Xiamen-style chili sauce served with the radish cakes. 



Steamed Lobster Dumpling Topped with Black Truffle - A generous filling of lobster meat and black truffle as topping makes this one of the premium items on the menu. A bite of this dumpling is immediately followed by a burst of flavors, a mix of umami and sweetness from the lobster. A piece of steamed lobster dumpling is equivalent to about three pieces of har gao.




Dim Sum Unlimited Plus



The new Dim Sum Unlimited Plus promo at Xin Tian Di features a curated selection of more than 55 dim sum items and is available for lunch and dinner every Friday to Sunday. Read more ►



Oven-Roasted Peking Duck



The Oven-Roasted Peking Duck is one of the signature dishes at Xin Tian Di. Perfect for family-style dining, the Peking duck is served two ways here at Xin Tian Di.



The first way to enjoy the Peking Duck is to wrap the carved duck meat in Chinese pancakes together with scallion and hoisin sauce. The Peking duck will be carved tableside. Below are the Peking duck wraps beautifully plated for us by Alex, the dining staff attending our table. Thank you, Alex!



For the second way of enjoying the Peking duck, the remaining duck meat will be used to prepare another dish. We chose the Stir-Fried Minced Duck in Lettuce Cup. The other two options are the Work-Fried Shredded Duck with Wheat Noodles, Wild Mushroom in Abalone Sauce, and the Duck Soup with Vegetables and Bean Curd.



The 2-Way Oven Roasted Peking Duck is good for six to eight persons. Half order of the Peking duck is also available and is good for three to four persons. In our case, we opted not to order rice anymore since there were only two of us sharing this meal. The dining staff should be able to guide you with the portions.



A La Carte Dishes



The a la carte menu of Xin Tian Di offers a variety of classic and modern Chinese dishes, including new signature dishes by Chef Peter Yeung. Here are some of the dishes we tried so far.



Conpoy, Eight Treasure Fish Lip Soup - This warm and flavorful soup is the best way to start your meal. The silky-smooth broth is contrasted by the strings of vegetables. The conpoy (dried scallops) added umami to the dish.



Fried Lobster with Butter, Salted Egg & Golden Garlic - This premium dish is made with lobster marinated in butter, garlic, onion, and leeks, deep-fried and topped with fried garlic and salted egg. This dish is best served to celebrate special occasions.



Pan-fried Wagyu Beef Striploin with Black Pepper Soya - Another premium dish is this Wagyu Beef seasoned with Himalayan pink salt, pan-fried, sliced, and served on a bed of French string beans with a drizzle of Chinese black pepper soya sauce. The meat was very tender and moist while the flavor was rich in umami.



Hot Prawn Salad - This all-time favorite dish is made extra premium by using generously large prawns which were batter-fried until golden, and finally coated with mango yogurt dressing. I love the well-balanced sweetness and tartness of the dressing. This is a must-try!



Stir-fried Spanish Iberico Pork Loin with Chinese Vinegar and Honey - The use of Iberico pork automatically makes this a premium dish. The meat was moist and tender and was perfectly flavored by the sweet honey sauce. This dish goes perfectly well with steamed rice.



Five Spices Soya with Homemade Spinach Tofu - On a lighter side, this dish is made of fried tofu with pureed spinach crust which is then braised in five-spice soya. The dish is served with blanched greens and mushrooms. This also goes well with steamed rice.



Dessert



Buchi Surprise - Glutinous rice balls are filled with chocolate and fried until crispy. The chocolate filling is unexpected from the green color of the buchi.



Black Sesame Soup - This is not part of the menu but it is available upon request. This Cantonese dessert is made of black sesame paste and rice flour. It is lightly sweet and has a thick consistency.





Overall, we are consistently satisfied with our dining experience here at Xin Tian Di. The quality of Chinese cooking here is superb and the taste is very authentic. The dining staff was very engaging and you can feel their genuine pleasure to serve. We will keep coming back here for sure!
