For this year's Lunar New Year at Goodwood Park Hotel, the team at Min Jiang has created pineapple-themed delights and irresistible savoury specials to usher in the Year of the Rooster. All these will be available from 10 January to 11 February 2017 for a friends, families and business associates to celebrate this significant season of joy and abundance.
Prosperity Amberjack Lo Hei 4.2/5
New on the menu is the Prosperity Amberjack Lo Hei ($168 for large portion) that comes with a drawing of an elegant rooster standing majestically against a bamboo forest. Most restaurants nowadays preferred to use abalone, crabmeat or smoke for their Yu Sheng. Hence the delicate amberjack is welcoming sight.
Festive Appetiser Takeaway Platter 4/5
For those that is planning to celebrate the occasion at home, Min Jiang has also put together a Festive Appetiser Takeaway Platter ($155.55 nett) which comprises of five delicious bites of deep fried chicken with sesame chilli sauce, deep fried prawns coated with salted egg yolk, deep fried ngoh hiang, sauteed kurobuta pork loin with coffee sauce and marinated jellyfish.
Doubled Boiled Wild Chicken Consomme 4.2/5
Rich but yet comforting is the Double Boiled Wild Chicken Consomme with Abalone, Fish Maw and Wanton in Claypot ($228 Dine-in). Boiled for hours, the soup has extracted the essence of the quality ingredients like braised Australian 10-head abalones, fish maw, spring chicken and Tianjin cabbage. This is also available for takeaway.
Braised Pork Belly with Sea Treasures in Claypot 4.5/5
A good celebratory dish is the Braised Pork Belly with Sea Treasures in Claypot ($268 dine-in) which is available for both dine-in and takeaway. The pork belly which has been painstakingly prepared for almost 4 hours, poached and steamed, in order to achieve that mouth-wateringly tender piece of meat. This is further complemented with premium ingredients such as Australian 10-head abalones, sea cucumber, dried oysters, dried scallops, flower mushrooms, black moss, gluten puffs and Tianjin cabbage.
The Huat! Tart 3/5 and Auspicious Golden Pineapple 3/5
We also sampled some of these year's Lunar New Year goodies. One of them is the enlarge version of the quintessential bite-sized pineapple tart. Named as The Huat! Tart ($40.65 nett), this is a whole pineapple tart measuring 6.5 inch!
The Auspicious Golden Pineapple ($94.15) is a majestic work of art. The 9-inch tall five layer vanilla pound cake sandwiched with butter cream symbolises an abundance of wealth.
Wrapping up the dinner, we have 3 different types of nian gao creation. There is the popular Durian Nian Gao Roll, Deep Fried Yuan Yang Sesame Nian Gao and Ondeh Ondeh Inspired Nian Gao. My all time favourite is the Durian Nian Gao which is comes with layers of luscious D24 durian paste and gula melaka infused nian gao sprinkled with coconut flakes.
