During the Lunar New Year, many families and offices will make booking at Chinese restaurant to celebrate the festive occasion with their family members or colleagues. I heard that the reservations at a lot of restaurants have already been filling up fast. If you have not make your reservation, you may like to check out Mitzo Restaurant & Bar at Grand Park Orchard known for offering progressive Cantonese cuisine.

Pearls of Prosperity Kanpachi Kingfish Yu Sheng 4.2/5

Tossing to an abundant year of happiness and wealth is the Pearls of Prosperity Kanpachi Kingfish Yu Sheng ($68/$108). The generous lashings of Kanpachi sashimi, crispy salmon skin, lychee caviar with the savoury Chu Hou sauce made this a magnificent platter in its unique play on textures and flavours.

Superior Lobster Fortune Pot 4.5/5

Pen Cai a traditional Chinese dish where luxurious ingredients are layered into a pot. The Superior Lobster Fortune Pot ($398/$688)comes with braised lobster in Mao Tai Wine, abalone, dried scallop, flower mushroom, sea cucumber, deep fried fish maw, dried oyster, roast duck, cabbage, lotus root, white radish, roasted pork belly and fa cai. This is one dish I always look forward to during Lunar New Year.

Steamed Live Soon Hock with Minced Ginger in Soya Sauce 3.5/5

The Steamed Live Soon Hock with Minced Ginger in Soya Sauce did not keep impress me. First is the presentation without the fish head. In Chinese tradition, it is believe to be a good symbol if the head and tail is intact, 有头有尾. While I enjoy the soya sauce which brought out the flavour of the fresh fish, I felt that the minced ginger was on the overpowering side, throwing the dish slightly off.

Koi Fish Nian Gao, Batter Deep Fried and Steamed Nian Gao 4/5

Another symbolic item during Lunar New Year is the Nian Gao which means promotions or prosperity year after year, 步步高升. Shaped into a Koi Fish Nian Gao ($28), it was sliced up and done in two ways. I preferred the Batter Deep Fried Niao Gao over the Steamed Niam Gao for its extra crispy texture.
