Cantonese cookery originated in Guangdong province in southern China. It's one of the Eight Culinary Traditions of Chinese cuisine and the most widely served style of Chinese cookery in the world. Cantonese cuisine is sometimes called Yue cuisine, although the modern version is somewhat different from ancient Yue cooking. However, it's still based on the principal of lightly cooked, fresh ingredients served with sauces that are slightly sweet. Delicious dishes that are popular with diners in Cantonese restaurants in Singapore include Char Sui and noodle dishes and everyone's favourite, Dim Sum.
Many Cantonese restaurants in Singapore open for both lunch and dinner. A Dim Sum lunch is a perfect pick-me-up after a busy morning spent shopping with friends on Orchard Road and, if you book ahead with Quandoo, you'll be shown straight to your table. Dim Sum traditionally consists of a range of bite-sized portions and your lunch at one of our Cantonese restaurants in Singapore might include steamed buns or dumplings with meat, vegetable or seafood fillings and Spring Rolls.
Pick dishes like crispy duck or roast pork (Char Sui), tuck into a bowl of Wonton Soup or try classic noodle dishes like Chow Mein or Lo Mein. Cantonese recipes call for spices like star anise, ginger, chilli peppers and five-spice powder but they're used sparingly. Other ingredients like soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine and spring onion enhance fresh seafood, meat and vegetables. This delicious regional food is just made for sharing and Cantonese restaurants in Singapore are ideal for birthday or anniversary meals or impromptu parties with friends. You don't really need an excuse - you can reserve tables at Cantonese restaurants in Singapore at any time with Quandoo.
