Xin Cuisine at Holiday Inn Atrium welcomes the year of the monkey with a number of prosperity and reunion set menus, specialty curated by the team of master chefs to celebrate the joyous Lunar New Year. Tossing to an abundance and prosperity year, we have the Yusheng with Salmon, Bamboo Clam and Champagne Dressing.
Festive Dim Sum 4/5
If you do not know, Xin Cuisine serves dim sum on their menu too. In conjunction with the Lunar New Year, we tried the Festive Dim Sum for a glimpse of their delectable offering. On the platter we have the Steamed Xiao Long Bao with Crab Meat, Pan Fried Yam and Pumpkin Cake, Steamed Seafood Dumpling with Cordyceps and Deep Fried Mussel Stuffed with Shrimp Paste. The quintessential dim sum will delight every diners.
Xin's Traditional Pen Cai 4/5
A tradition during Lunar New Year feast is the luxurious Xin's Traditional Pen Cai that is filled to the brim with abalone, prawn, oyster, pork belly, roasted duck etc. For those that wants to impress their guests or family members, this is also available for takeaway during the festive period.
Braised Vermicelli with Crab, Ginger and Onion 3.5/5
A new creation for the Lunar New Year menu at Xin Cuisine is the Braised Vermicelli with Crab, Ginger and Onion. While it was an enjoyable dish with plump and juicy crab meat, the vermicelli lacked the essence of the crustacean.
Wok Fried Glutinous Rice with Preserved Meat 3.5/5
Rice is an essential part of a meal in Asia and it is even more fitting to celebrate the festive season with the Wok Fried Glutinous Rice with Preserved Meat. The glittering rice grains are infused with the wok hei aroma, with the flavour further accentuated by the preserved meat.
Xin's Traditional Nian Gao, Double Boiled Snow Pear 4/5
Wrapping up our dinner is the Xin's Traditional Nian Gao and Double Boiled Snow Pear with Osmanthus and Snow Fungus. My favourite is the double boiled snow pear with osmanthus and snow fungus. It is a light and refreshing dessert after the sumptuous meal.
