Cassia at Capella Singapore has line-up a bountiful feasts of culinary delights to usher in the Year of the Dog. The resort's Chinese specialty restaurant has curated 2 reunion set dinner menus for reunion dinner on 15 Feb 2018 and 4 lunar new year set menus throughout the 15 days of celebration.
Cassia Signature Loh Hei 4.2/5
In all Lunar New Year dinner, a must-have is the Yu Sheng. We had the Cassia Signature Loh Hei ($38++ per pax) which consists of a vibrant mix of shredded vegetables and condiments. The propitious salad also comes with premium ingredients such as lobster, salmon and north pole clam. A homemade hawthorn sauce is pour over the yu sheng before tossing to an abundance and prosperity year ahead.
Double-boiled Thick Chicken Soup 4.2/5
The Double-Boiled Thick Chicken Soup is packed with rich flavour that has a lot of depth. Not only that, the comforting bowl of soup comes with premium ingredients such as sea cucumber, fish maw, duo of scallops and flower mushroom.
Wok-fried Prawns 4.2/5
The Wok-Fried Prawns stuffed with minced shrimp allows diner to enjoy the crustacean in two ways. What I appreciate more is the the use of crispy garlic, cook in Bi Fong Tong Style. This is a good change from the usual herbal, salted egg yolk and cereal prawn dishes.
Steamed Cod Fish with Black Garlic in Light Soya Sauce 4.5/5
Why I enjoyed the sweetness of the black garlic, as well as knowing its health benefit value, it is not the highlight of the Steamed Cod Fish with Black Garlic in Light Soya Sauce. Instead it was the yellow ginger sauce that gives live to the cod fish. The cod fish was also steamed to perfection. It was so moist and buttery that literally melted in the mouth.
Fried Rice with Mini Abalone and Preserved Chinese Sausages 5/5
Fried rice is a common dish that you can probably find in every Chinese restaurant menu but to get it right and made me go wow is quite hard. It is not until I tried the Fried Rice with Mini Abalone and Preserved Chinese Sausages at Cassia. The mini abalone is more like garnishing here. The highlight is the fried rice itself. Not only did it come with wok hei and the aroma of the Chinese sausages, the golden-coloured rice is so well fried and coated evenly with the fragrant of the egg. I guess this is what we meant by the golden ratio in fried rice. Each mouthful of the fried rice is a multi-sensational enjoyment.
Chilled Coconut Cream with Pearls and Sago topped with Ice Cream 4/5
Wrapping up the dinner is the Chilled Coconut Cream with Pearls and Sago topped with Ice Cream. The milky coconut cream with pearls and sago felt like I was having bubble tea, just that it is served in a bowl and not in a cup.
