The feasting during Lunar New Year period continues at Yan Ting, Cantonese Restaurant of St Regis Singapore. The Prosperity Yu Sheng with Norwegian Salmon decked with fruits like marinated papaya, honeydew, pomelo, strawberry and snow pear kick start our dinner, tossing to an auspicious start and 'fruitful' 2017.
Chinese New Year Pun Choy 4.5/5
One of my favourite dishes during Chinese New Year is the Pun Choy or Pen Cai. It comes with time honoured indulgences such as abalone, fish maw, oyster, sea cucumber prawns, roast duck etc. This is also available at Yan Ting for takeaway at $488 which includes a Medium Prosperity “Yu Sheng” with Norwegian Salmon, Fried Glutinous Rice with Preserved Meat and Osmanthus Water Chestnut Cake
Deep Fried Sea Perch Fillet with Fermented Beancurd Sauce 4.2/5
You can'r judge a book by its cover, this is so true for the next dish - Deep Fried Sea Perch Fillet with Fermented Beancurd. The deep fried fillet may not look appealing but trust me, have it with the fermented beancurd sauce to change the whole perspective of the dish. The sauce single-handedyly turned them into gold.
Braised King Prawn with Shrimp Oil 4/5
A new creation by Chef Tony Wun is the Braised King Prawn with Shrimp Oil. The huge king prawn is braised with shrimp oil to bring out the beautiful flavours of the ingredients on top of the firm and bouncy texture of the king prawn.
Braised Boneless Short Ribs 3.8/5
The Braised Boneless Short Ribs are infused with the savoury sauce and cooked to fork tender. I enjoy the radish the most as it is like a sponge locking in all the essences.
Wok Fried Green Dragon Vegetable with Garlic 4/5
I noticed the Green Dragon Vegetable has been commonly used in Chinese restaurant lately. I actually enjoy it for its crunch. If I am not wrong, bean sprout to give it more textures.
Wok Fried Glutinous Rice with Wind-dried Sausages 4.5/5
A signature at Yan Ting is the Wok Fried Glutinous Rice with Wind-dried Sausages. It does not need further introduction as the flavoursome glutinous rice perfumed by the wind-dried sausages is eagerly waited for a finale dinner round up.
Fragrant Homemade Almond Tea with Peach Gum 4/5
Thumbs up to Chef Tony Wun who has given the Fragrant Homemade Almond Tea an 'upgrade'. Last year it was just plain almond tea 'koso', this year peach gum is added for an additional textural enjoyment. We were also served with crispy glutinous rice cake to go with the almond tea.
Yan Ting's Lunar New Year ala carte, special set menus and gourmet takeaways will be available from 9 January to 11 February 2017.
