The Yee Sang with a twist this year from Chef Terrence's creation, namely the Special Yee Sang with Soba Noodle, grilled Chicken and Smoked Duck comes with generous slices of flavoursome grilled chicken and smoked duck instead of raw fish, and new ingredient of  Soba Noodle, enhanced by the tangy tinge from the sauce made specially in-house.

The other dish that is not to be missed is the Wok-fried Prawns "Bei Fong Tong" Style - tender and succulent meaty big prawns making for an unforgettable interesting experience.

Even the prawn skin was edible for my hubby as was so crispy and well-fried to perfection.

Steamed White Cat Fish with Minced Ginger

Another dish that merits a mention is the Steamed White Cat Fish with Minced Ginger, steamed with minced ginger and premium light soy sauce. So simple yet so delicious, I was impressed with Chef Terrence's choice of choosing to serve the White Cat Fish, also known as "Pak Shok Kung" in Cantonese.

Steamed White Cat Fish with Minced Ginger
You see, throughout my CNY menu tasting, most chefs would serve Tiger Grouper as it's a favourite of many and this fish is famous for its tender, sweet and flaky white meat. The White Cat Fish is a fresh water fish, challenging fish to cook and it's not easy to prepare the fish in steam style as it's sometimes leave behind a mud taste.

Chef did an excellent job with the delicious fish - packing quite a punch, the meat texture was sweet and fresh and melted in my mouth with not a single trace of mud taste.

Moving on to the more meat dishes, there was the Roasted Crispy Chicken "Pi Pa" Style with Prawns Crackers. The big fat chicken is marinated, dried and roasted to a nice juicy golden brown. Chinese dishes are the most challenging.

To create a proper dish, it requires a combination of several techniques and the most difficult part is retaining the natural colour of the food, an important aspect of Chinese cooking.

Rounding up the main dishes was the Stir-fried Hong Kong Kailan topped with Enoki Mushroom. Chef's favourite dish in fact as it was served in last year CNY menu too. You can see that the crispy and tasty deep-fried Enoki mushroom was a hit for everyone at the dinner as it was gone in minutes after serving leaving the greens behind.

New Year "Nian Gao" Dual Variation

We ended our meal with yet another back-to-basics traditional dessert of New Year "Nian Gao" Dual Variation which is the same "Nian Gao" your grandma or mum would served at home. Sweet potato and yam are both sandwiched between the rice cake, dipped in batter and deep-fried till cooked.

Next. the other variation of servings was the "Nian Gao" Slice is dipped in egg before being pan-fried and served warm while the rice cake is still soft and gooey, making it a sweet and savoury plus fragrant with the egg flavour. Thumbs up for that, something different from the norm and it was so good that we cleared up the whole platter of sweet treats!

Going with the concept of hot and cold, after tasting the warm "Nian Gao" dessert, we were served with Doubled Boiled White Fungus with Longan and Sea Coconut. These lovely dessert truly captured the essence of the Lunar New Year.

  3. Chinese cooking is usually done in a wok or a bamboo steamer. A wok is simply a large, bowl shaped pan that can hold soups, stews or stir fry easily. Phoenix Chinese Restaurant
