At the recent festive menu sampling, we were delighted to be treated with the 'Prosperity Set Menuthat includes some of the highlights from their extensive Chinese New Year menus. Master Chef Lam is proud to showcase sumptuous set meals featuring traditional must-haves for this Year Of Rat.

The auspicious festive menu showcases the best of Cantonese fine dining highlighting the Chynna  Yee Sang with Smoky Chicken with Rice Krispies adds a festive twist to the traditional festive toss in conjunction with the Year of Rat.

Toss to good fortune with Chynna’s signature Yee Sang for 2020 which is Smoky Chicken with Rice Krispies Yee Sang that’s both sweet, savoury and has great texture. 

The creative chefs behind this long-standing Chinese restaurant surprised my taste buds with one of the most interesting Yee Sang I have ever tasted this year. According to Chef Lam, they required at least 2 days advance notice or bookings for the special motif Yee Sang featuring a little cute mouse and there's an extra charge for it.

Braised Tomato Puree With Seafood, Vegetarian Fins & Crushed Almonds Soup

Featuring a healthy and nutritious soup base made from fresh tomatoes, the seafood was a great complement to this mild-tasting soup extracting out all the natural flavours of the ingredient within. It somehow with all the ingredients, it manages to deliver sweetness expected of a premium seafood infused broth.

 Eight Treasure Salt Baked Chicken ~ Chef Lam Style

Moving on, there's the Eight Treasure Salt Baked Chicken, prepared in Chef Lam Style.  The chicken was smoked just right to perfection so that the meat is still juicy and succulent and not dry. 

This delicious chicken dish was enhanced with Chinese herbs giving it an aromatic fragrance when served.  The dish was complemented with a nice touch by the ginger dipping sauce! 

Steamed Moontail Grouper With Green Lime & Garlic Chilli Sauce

One of the highlights choices of fish is the Steamed Moontail Grouper With Green Lime & Garlic Chilli Sauce .

The premium fish is steamed just right so that the meat is not too flaky, retaining the right texture for eating and the special zesty concoction of the green sauce is relatively mild, allowing diners to enjoy the fish meat itself. This fish dish had everyone clamouring for more including the head and down to bones!

 Sliced Abalone with Sea Cucumbers, Dried Oysters, Sea Moss & Chinese Cabbage In Clay Pot 

Sliced Abalone with Sea Cucumbers, Dried Oysters, Sea Moss & Chinese Cabbage In Clay Pot is a must-have auspicious traditional festive dish for Chinese New Year. Everyone was enjoying a break from the meat and seafood dishes while enjoying this vegetarian dish on its own.

Stir-Fried Prawns with Kam Heong Pepper Sauce

Next, was the succulent and juicy dish of Stir-Fried Prawns with Kam Heong Pepper Sauce, another crowd-pleaser when it arrived on the table. Chef Lam, who enjoys experimenting in the kitchen, said the dish was a twist on a festive favourite as Kam Heong-style usually goes with crab dish instead.

Fragrant Rice With Preserved Duck meat Wrapped In Lotus Leaf

Rice, another mandatory dish for its auspicious symbolism in a festive meal. In them, rice regarded in Chinese culture as the symbolic link between Heaven and Earth has been given the VIP treatment by Chef Lam with this Fragrant Rice With Preserved Duck meat Wrapped In Lotus Leaf dish.

Double-Boiled Almond Cream With Gum Tragacanth

The dessert formed the perfect ending to the night, with the Double-Boiled Almond Cream With Gum Tragacanth giving a sweet ending.

Premium Musang King Dessert 

Leaving the best for last, Chef Lam has prepared the durian-Licious dessert of Premium Musang King to excite our taste buds for the last dish. 

The glutinous rice ball was good and chewy, with fresh durian pulp within,  proving that care has taken to ensure the Chinese New Year offering is good to the last bite.

Oh yes, everyone was delighted with the presence of a tea master, serving us tea in the most skilled manner and style. Reminded me of the time when I was dining in Beijing many years ago!
