Each ingredient in the Yee Sang signifies good wishes for the Monkey year; from the pepper and five-spice powder for health and wealth, plum sauce for sweetness in life, to the raw fish which represents the word "yu" or abundance.
Stir-Fried Hong Kong Pea Sprouts
Fruits Platter With Special Golden Citrus
The highlight of the Dragon-i Fruits Platter is the cute-looking citrus fruit called 'Kumquat'. In Cantonese, the word 'Kumquat' literally means 'golden tangerine'. The fruit has always been a favourite especially during the Chinese New Year, so the fruit is therefore thought to bring luck for the coming year.
Served on a dry ice platter together with chilled grapes and strawberries, these kumquats makes an awesome colourful presentation especially with the dry ice smoke-effects. It have a very distinctive taste with the sweet and bitterness from the skin; probably the only citrus fruit that can be eaten "skin and all".
