Let start off the meal with the Yee Sang
Four Seasons Prosperity Yee Sang 四季兴隆捞生
The must-have traditional dish on every table during this festival; symbolizing good luck, prosperity and everything good. Tai Zi Heen’s version contains butterfish, salmon, tuna, jellyfish; resembling the four seasons. And of course, they do have Abalone, Hamachi, Canadian Surf Clam, Salmon or Snow Pear (vegetarian) as alternative options based on your preferences.
Let’s toss to good fortune and remember to speak up everything good during the tossing, 捞生捞喜 !!!
Take away options for all Yee Sang are available for your enjoyment with family and friends at home too.
Double-boiled Chicken Broth with Whole Abalone, Dried Scallops, Bamboo Pith and Vegetables 鲍鱼竹笙菜胆炖湯
Such a clear and flavourful double-boiled soup with freshness of all ingredients remained in the soup!
Braised Japanese Sun-Dried Shiitake Mushrooms with Dried Oysters and Fatt Choy 花菇蚝士发菜
Love the dried oysters very much; finely selected oysters which were not totally dried, but half-dried. They were really juicy with essence of freshness locked within, levelled up the flavour of whole mushroom-oyster dish to another stage. Try it out and you will understand why.
Baked Salmon Fillets with Honey and Onion Rings 蜜汁烤三文鱼
A fusion east meets west dish that surprised us and couldn’t believe this is in their CNY menu. We love the coating of honey glazed on the salmon steak, using the method of grilling-BBQing the char siu till perfection. Each mouthful of the fish fillet was accompanied with natural omega-rich oil and the sweet taste of the glaze.
Wok-fried Rice with Diced Lobster, Tobikko and Bonito Flakes 龙虾魚子炒飯
Fluffy fried rice tossed in and loaded with diced lobster, tobikko and topped with dancing bonito flakes. A very fancy and luxury version of fried rice.
Crispy Deep-fried Sesame Balls with Salted Egg Yolk Custard and Durian Mochi 流沙芝麻棗拼榴櫣麽芝
This version of sesame balls is only available in Tai Zi Heen, claimed Chef Michael Wong.
Crispy skin encased with hot and runny salted egg yolk. One bite and you will madly fall in love with it if you are the salted egg yolk custard fan. Durian Mochi is another highlight too. Rich and creamy durian fillings wrapped within the soft, smooth and very thin mochi skin. Sorry, I am not a fan of durian, so I don’t really know how to enjoy it.
Tai Zi Heen remains open during Lunar New Year’s Eve and throughout the 15 days of the festival from 12 noon to 2:30pm for lunch (Mondays to Fridays), 11:30am to 2:30pm for lunch (Saturdays and Sundays) and 6:30pm to 10:30pm for dinner (Mondays to Sundays).
