Denoting fame and
recognition, we tossed and stirred the refreshing platter of Prosperity Yee
Sang with Salmon and Shredded Young Mango with much gusto before relishing the
melange of freshly shredded fruits, vegetables, crisps and crackers dressed in
a fruity-plum sauce.
With promises of career success, the subsequent tureen of Double Boiled Wild Mushroom with Bamboo Pith and Farmed Village Chicken was warmly welcomed. The concentrated sweetness of the various ingredients was a soothing balm for the soul.
Heralding an abundance of blessings, the Roast Crispy Chicken with Barbecue and Chilli Oil proved on-point with its crispy skin and juicy meat. The accompanying barbecue-chilli oil dialled up its appeal factor, adding some tantalising spicy heat to the chook.
Eaten to symbolise hope and
abundance for the Lunar New Year, we thoroughly enjoyed the delicate sweetness
of the Hong Kong Style Steamed Live High Fin Patin with Superior Soya Sauce.
The smooth flesh coupled with the garlicky and mildly sweet soy sauce made it something
to write home about.
When it comes to evoking laughter
and happiness, Chef Eric San banked on his crowd-pleasing Wok Fried Tiger
Prawns with Superior Soya Sauce. Suffice to say, the delicious crustaceans brought out the smiles at first bite.
Fervent wishes of good things
and prosperity were foremost in our minds when the Braised Sea Cucumber with
Dried Oysters and Sea Moss was served. A perennial Lunar New Year dish eagerly partaken by everyone,
this luxurious dish ticked all the right boxes for us.
A joyful reunion of Steamed
Organic Brown Rice with White Rice and Smoked Duck garnered two thumbs up in
place of the more traditional glutinous rice.
To ensure a sweet year ahead, we feasted on Doubled Boiled Red Dates with Sweet Peach Resin and Snow Fungus accompanied by Deep-fried Chinese New Year Cake and Glutinous Dumplings Shanghai Style. It was a relief to find these treats are restrained on the sweetness level.
