2023 Pre-CNY Teochew Restaurant Lunch at Paradise Teochew Scotts Square

The 2023 CNY Paradise Teochew set menus are out (pictures at the end of this post). But we were at Scotts Square to have a pre-CNY Teochew restaurant lunch before the busy rush of lo hei and other Chinese New Year festivities break out next week in Singapore.

This week is probably the lull before the storm of feasting and entertaining takes place before and during the Lunar New Year 2023. Many Chinese restaurants are already fully booked during the peak days of the CNY festive period that starts from the reunion dinner on 21January 2023 (eve of Chinese New Year). So the build up will start next week with business lunches and family meals. We therefore try to avoid Chinese restaurants for casual meals during the CNY period.

Paradise Teochew Scotts Square was already quite busy during our 8% GST lunch on a weekday. It is not a large restaurant and we can imagine that it can easily be filled up during peak periods. The restaurant seemed to have been renovated since our last visits. The booth seats had been converted into small private dining rooms, making the open dining area look smaller. Even though it is small, the restaurant is capable of producing banquet style dinners – read about a dinner feast we had at Paradise Teochew here.

The Regular Menu

Here are pictures of some sample pages from the regular a la carte menu of Paradise Teochew Scotts Square. We selected a few (mainly Teochew) dishes and dim sum items.

Dim Sum and Teochew Food

The two dim sum items we tried were pork dumpling with olive and vegetables ($7.30) and steamed Teochew dumpling ($8.80). Both were very good and have Teochew characteristics.

Stewed pork ribs and bitter gourd soup ($28) was very enjoyable. The meat and vegetable must have been cooked for a long time till they were soft and easily eaten. Their flavours as well as those of beans and preserved vegetables had been extracted to create a wonderful soup.


Our next dish is also a “very Teochew” dish – stewed duck casserole ($39 for half a duck). This stewed duck had probably been cooked longer than the usual braised duck. The meat falls off the bone easily. Almost as good as the duck are the chunks of yam.

We also tried a dish of sweet and sour pork ($28). This was not as good as the others. We should stick to the Teochew classic dishes the next time.

To accompany all the food, especially the stewed duck, we had some Teochew porridge ($4.40 each). Paradise Teochew now serves their porridge together with three side dishes – deep fried fish and preserved vegetables. It looks very traditional.
