As explained by Chef Justin Hor, all the ingredients used for these dishes are of the top quality and cooked using techniques that will exude the natural flavour of the ingredients and taste that will linger in your taste bud.

Tapas-Like Dishes For Starter
Tapas-Like Dishes For Starter

For this review, we taste the Majestic Set which starts off with 6 individual tapas-like dishes instead of the more commonly Four Season platter which are norms for Chinese set meals.

 Chilled Bittergourd in Sweet Chilli Sauce

We started off our lunch with the Chilled Bittergourd in Sweet Chilli Sauce. Served with an orange peel as decor, the bitter gourd has a light crunch chill taste which was refreshing to bite in. Married to the Thai inspired light sweet taste, it is a real nice starter, to begin with.

Next, we had the Chilled Chicken With Szechuan Peppercorn Sauce, served chilled with a mild peppery taste to suit the palate of most Malaysian which like a little spicy taste.

Capsicum & Apricot Mushroom in Miso

Coming up next was the Capsicum & Apricot Mushroom in Miso. An unassuming dish of yellow, green and red capsicum cut into bite size and stirred fried with Japanese White Miso sauce. It has a light flavoured Miso taste which Chef Peter was inspired during his stints with a Japanese Chef on the use of Miso as a sauce base for stirred fried dishes.

Radish Cake Typhoon Shelter Style

Next is a deep fried dish, we were served the Radish Cake Typhoon Shelter Style. Normally this Typhoon Shelter cooking style uses the crab as the main ingredient, but the Chef has replaced it with radish cake which is infused with a subtle garlicky taste.

 Fragrant Black Sesame Flat Noodle

The fifth starter is the Fragrant Black Sesame Flat Noodle. When the dish arrives at the table, our first thought is that this dish was eel but when Chef Peter explained that it's actually Black Sesame Flat noodle, we were a little surprise as the texture does have the soft firm texture of the eel meat.

Liver Sausage with Prawn Roll

Our final starter is the Liver Sausage with Prawn Roll; A real delight of deep-fried crispy bean curd skin wrapped delicately with the bouncy prawn meat and the rich fragrant taste of the liver sausage matched with the crunchy cucumber and sweet cherry tomatoes all in one mouthful.

Double Boiled 'Haruan' Soup with Fish Maw served in Paper Wok

After our starter dish, our first main is the Double Boiled 'Haruan' Soup with Fish Maw served in Paper Wok. We were really delighted to taste this soup as it's soup based is cooked with the Haruan fish bones that were boiled in a thick rich white milky broth. It was heavenly with every spoonful as you can literally stain your mouth with the rich fish oil taste.

According to Chef Justin, the Thousand Layer Tau Foo was included to balance the fish oily feel as it penetrates into the bean curd. To finish off with the silky smooth taste of the fish maw; this soup set the tones for more surprises and expectations of the dishes to be served.

Treasures Chest Duck, Braised with Abalone and Soft Boiled Quail Egg
In this Majestic Set, the poultry dish is the Treasures Chest Duck, Braised with Abalone and Soft Boiled Quail Egg. This dish used to be very popular in the 70's in Hong Kong which was called the 'Ba Wong Ngap'. Chef Peter remembers during his early days' apprenticeship in Hong Kong, the restaurant he used to work in; serve about 35 to 40 bird per day.

Treasures Chest Duck, Braised with Abalone and Soft Boiled Quail Egg
To prepare this dish takes plenty of efforts; as it first needs; to be de-boned and kept overnight in the fridge. On the next day, the stuffing which is cooked using Salted Eggs, Barley, Lotus Seed, Mushroom, Chicken Dice (replace with Bacon) are put into the duck carcass and then fried to a light crisp before stewing it with the broth. The final result is the tender meat skin with the full flavour of the ingredient.

Mini Ajitama Quails Eggs

One of the other highlights of this dish was the boiled quail eggs, we thought it was just an ordinary hard boiled quail eggs but we made aware by Chef Justin that this is no ordinary boil quail eggs as when we bite into the quail eggs, we can feel the bursting warms of the flowing quail egg yolks much like the Ajitama eggs.

The third main dish is presented as a gift set when it arrives on the table. This dish is called the Crystal Wrap Steamed "Soon Hock" with Radish and Green Ginger. According to the Chef; the traditional steaming process will release all the flavour as steam which escapes during the steaming process. With the wrapping, the flavours of the condiment and ingredient are sealed in the wrapping.

Once the wrapping is removed, we can smell the natural fresh fish flavours with the strong aroma of ginger and scallion. As the fish was deboned making it easier to eat; with every bite of the firm texture of the fresh fish meat which marries perfectly to the soft ginger/ scallion paste, it was a pleasure to slurp up the each piece of the fish meat.

 Scallop in Golden Egg White Souffle

The next dish which is the Scallop in Golden Egg White Souffle does spring a surprise for everyone at the dining table. Chef Peter offers to do a live cooking session for us to appreciate this simple and delicate dish. The white of the eggs is beaten to a creamy like texture and stuffed with the fresh scallop to be deep-fried to a golden brown finish.

This was then braised with a Bacon/ Chicken superior broth which is infused with scallion and slow cooked. To serve to the diners the soupy based is bedded with boiled spinach to absorbs the broth taste. The Egg white has a soft texture while the fresh scallop has a firm bouncy texture was a good combination with the broth.

Yin Yang Rice With Lobster & Crab Meat in Superior Crab Soup

Our final main dish is the Yin Yang Rice With Lobster & Crab Meat in Superior Crab Soup. The Yin Yang rice is made up of 1/3 portion of Glutinous Rice and 2/3 of Deep Fried Rice Cracker. This provides a nice soft crunch of the rice.

The rice cracker is cooked with the specially curated crab soup to embed the taste into the golden rice grain. Although our stomach by now, is almost over the top, the taste of the lobster meat, crab meat and the infused flavoured rice was too much for us to resist and we end up wanting a second helping of this addictive dish.

 
Chilled Peach Resin in Snow Pear

To end our memorable luncheon tasting session, we had the soothing and sweet Chilled Peach Resin in Snow Pear for dessert. The Snow Pear was first double-boiled and then stuffed with peach resin that can easily be mistaken to bird nest. It is accompanied with Pak Hup, Wolfberries and Longan fruits. 

I was lucky to be the first few to taste their Classic Nanyang Cantonese Cuisine Promotion curated by two awards winning chefs ~ Chef Peter Tsang, namely the 2016 Asian Top Chef In Taiwan and Chef Justin Hor, another winner of the prestigious title of 'World International Top Chinese Chef' and 'King of Kitchens (Ambassador of Cuisine) and 'Master Chef (Asian) (Master of Authenticity) at Hospitality Asia Platinum Awards (HAPA).
