Yan Restaurant at National Gallery Singapore is introducing the Prosperity Soup Feast for a limited period from 19 September 2016 to 31 October 2016. A total of 25 double boiled soups are prepared using time-honoured recipes. Every week the menu will feature 5 of the soups and rotating them weekly during the promotion period.
Double Boiled Frog with Conpoy and Winter Melon 4.5/5
If you have been under the weather and feeling heaty, the Doubled Boiled Frog with Conpoy and Winter Melon will be the perfect soup to clear the body heatiness. The light and refreshing was not only comforting, it comes with a homely flavour that felt like mother's cooking.
Doubled Boiled Hashima with Huang Qi and Dang Shen 3.8/5
For those ladies that want a nice complexion, the Doubled Boiled Hashima with Huang Qi and Dang Shen will help to improves the skin complexion for a radiant glow.
Doubled Boiled Sea Whelk and Black Garlic 4/5
With the outbreak of Zika in Singapore, you probably want to strengthen your immune system and Yan Restaurant has the right soup in the Doubled Boiled Sea Whelk and Black Garlic, using the medical properties of the black garlic and wolfberries.
Doubled Boiled Duck with Parsley and Dried Orange Peel 4.2/5
Having a cold? The Doubled Boiled Duck with Parsley and Dried Orange Peel is supposed to help prevent cold. Besides the medical benefit and robust soup, what I enjoyed most is tender roasted duck that comes with the soup.
Double Boiled Chinese Cabbage with Yunnan Ham 3.8/5
When I knew that the Double Boiled Chinese Cabbage with Yunnan Ham can help to nourishes the lungs and boosts energy, I thought this is the right soup me as I have asthma and Singapore is starting to experience the haze from the forest fire in Indonesia. I thought the bitterness of the Chinese cabbage threw the balance of the soup a little off or it will be an even better dish.
The soups are priced at $13.80 each, and they all comes with a bowl of rice. It is not a bowl of ordinary rice. The fragrant bowl of rice is cooked in an imperial stock and comes with crispy rice. It has both flavour and texture.
Signature Roasted Crispy Suckling Pig Served 3 Ways
Not to be missed at Yan Restaurant is some of the mainstay dishes such as the Signature Roasted Crispy Suckling Pig ($124 for half, $248 for whole) served in 3 ways. First is to enjoy the crispiness of the crackling skin paired with the steamed pancake, cucumber and scallion.
Carved Shoulder 4.5/5
The second way of enjoying the suckling pig is the Carved Shoulder. If you have enjoyed the crispy skin, this is like 2 in 1. You get to have both the succulent meat as well as the crispy skin.
Oven Baked Fillet with Lemongrass 4/5
Last but not least, we have the Oven Baked Fillet with Lemongrass. I wasn't expecting that little fellow has so much meat. It felt like have Japanese yakitori.
Steamed Thousand Layer Beancurd 4.2/5
We were all so impressed with the knife skill when the Steamed Thousand Layer Beancurd with Dice Honey Glazed Pork, Conpoy, Mushroom and Ginko Nuts. The silky smooth beancurd was complemented by the beautiful sauce and I enjoyed the contrast of textures from the diced pork, conpoy, mushroom and ginko nuts.
Chilled Mango Cream Topped with Vanilla Ice Cream and Oats 4.5/5
Wrapping up our dinner is the Chilled Mango Cream. It is served in a coconut husk and topped with vanilla ice cream and oats for the extra crunch. The bonus is that you can even have the coconut flesh after cleaning up the chilled mango cream and ice cream.
Kindly be reminder that the Prosperity Soup Feast is run on a rotational basis, with a minimum of 5 different soups available daily. If you want to try any specific soup out of the 25 soups, guests is welcome to pre-order at least a day in advance.
