Having your restaurant within a Condominium must be a recent trend. What Diamond Kitchen(钻石小厨) and The French Ladle share in common is the winning formula of great food and affordable price. Diamond Kitchen started by young entrepreneurs Josh Chou, 30, and Lambert Chen, 27, are located at the Laguna Park condominium in MarineParade.
Josh Chou, “The nature of our food and ambience is very heartfelt, unpretentious and welcoming. The location – nestled within this established Marine Parade estate with its neighbourly charm – was the perfect choice for us.”
Chef de Cuisine Kevin Lau (刘坤进) has more than 25 years of experience under his belt, presenting a comprehensive menu which includes signature dishes like Champagne Pork Ribs，Salted Egg Sotong, Sauna Prawns, Crab in Gan Xiang style, Superior Stock Clam Bee Hoon, Pumpkin Bean Curd, and Superior Chicken Soup.
The brightly-lit roomy interior will not impress if you are looking for a place to have your wedding dinner, but the food they serve will satiate the most discerning palate if you are looking for fresh seafood and delectable cantonese cuisine.
What are the dishes we recommend?
Champagne Pork Ribs ($12 / $18 / $24) reigns supreme at Diamond Kitchen. Chunks of pork ribs – the bones skilfully sliced away for convenient noshing – are marinated with Chef’s secret sauce overnight to fully impart the flavours and tenderise the meat. A key ingredient, champagne, adds a lively dimension to this signature dish.
Gan Xiang Fried Rice ($8 / $12 / $16) offers a burst of flavour that will have them coming back for more. Fragrant rice is cooked to perfection with the homemade sauce and egg before being topped with deep-fried chicken pieces.
Crab in Gan Xiang干香 style (market price). The intoxicating smoky aroma emanating from the freshly prepared dish is a prelude to the delectable spicy, sweet contrast between the sauce and sweet flesh of the crab.
Yam Paste ($12 / $24), served with diced pumpkin, ginko nuts, or both toppings. No chinese meal is complete without the sinfully delicious Yam Paste!
