Yee Sang with Jelly Fish and Crispy Fish Skin
The must have traditional dish on every table during this festive season. With the usual condiments of yee sang such as pomelo, ginger, radish, carrots and bits and pieces, the jelly fish and crispy fish skin are one of the main stars in the yee sang dishes. Love the crispy fish skin with hint of saltiness to go around with the other condiments and sourish sauces. It serves as a great beer food too!
Let’s toss to good fortune and remember to speak up everything good during the tossing.
Assorted Seafood Soup with Tofu
Loaded with lots of seafood such as crabs, prawns, fish in this soothing tofu soup, it was indeed a essence-filled tummy warmer before the real dishes coming up.
Butter prawn with sinful shredded butter layering the fragrant prawns.
Steamed Mandarin Fish with Minced Ginger
I am not a fan of minced ginger but I kind of fancy this. The minced ginger was comforting, not overly spicy and layered on forever smooth and sweet mandarin fish. With just steaming method and drizzled with their own special soy based sauce, the chef does know how to make the flavour of the fresh fish appears lively on the taste buds.
Cantonese Style Toasted Crispy Duck; to go with the sour plum dipping sauce.
富贵荣华 ( 炸金针菇扒港芥兰)
Deep fried Enoki Mushroom with Hong Kong Kailan
Oh boy, never know deep fried enoki mushroom can be this good. Perhaps time to get some inspiration of it to make some for Chinese New Year as snack.
Fried Rice with Assorted Chinese Waxed Meat wrapped in Lotus Leaf; love the additional of yam cubes in the fried rice as it jazz up the whole combination and absorbed the fragrance and oil bits of the waxed meat.
New Year “Nian Gao” Dual Variation
Double Boiled Chrysanthemum with Logan & Black Sesame Rice Dumpling
Both the sweet endings were not too greasy and not too sweet, suitable for current’s health-conscious trend.
