Ring in the Lunar New Year with grand celebrations overflowing with happiness, abundance and prosperity at Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant, Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel. Award-winning Executive Chef Brian Wong has crafted set menus for the occasions, starting from $108.80++ per person (4 to 8 persons) to $2088++ per 10 persons
A must have at every reunion dinner is the Yu Sheng. Wan Hao has come up with six different renditions of Yu Sheng, catering to all taste buds. Worth noting is the substitution of the usual sweet plum sauce with homemade Kumquat sauce, which is not too sweet, refreshing with a zesty twist. We had the Peak of Prosperity Yu Sheng ($268++ Large) featuring lobster, scallop, tuna, salmon and caviar yu sheng with kumquat sauce.
Braised Bird's Nest 4.5/5
Lining the stomach before the great feast, is the Braised Bird's Nest with Assorted Dried Seafood Broth and Golden Superior Stock. I could taste the richness of the seafood broth, after long hours of boiling and extracting the essence. This is further sweeten with the addition of pumpkin and hence the orangey appearance.
Deep Fried Lobster 3.5/5
Next is the Deep Fried Lobster with Yuzu Mayonnaise and Broccoli. Coated in a light batter, I could still taste the sweetness of the bouncy lobster within. This is complemented by the yuzu mayonnaise sauce. I thought if the lobster is poached, it may go even better with the sauce.
Braised U.S. Short Ribs 4.2/5
The Braised U.S. Short Ribs literally melted in the mouth and it is paired excellently with the Japanese light soya sauce. A well balance dish, allowing the short ribs to shine.
Deep Fried Cod Fish with Celery Sauce 4.5/5
My eyes brightened up when the accompanying celery sauce of the Deep Fried Cod Fish touched my taste buds. It is a bit sweet and tangy, resembling a bit like Mei Cai. It is very appetising and it goes very well with the buttery and fatty cod fish.
Crispy Pork Trotter with Wolfberry Sauce 3/5
Another deep fried dish on the menu is the Crispy Pork Trotter with Wolfberry Sauce. Unfortunately this dish falls short from the other dishes we had. While the appearance is appealing, the taste did not live up to the expectation. Even the wolfberry sauce did not manage to lift the dish.
Wan Hao's Imperial Pot of Prosperity Pen Cai 4.5/5
The Wan Hao's Imperial Pot of Prosperity Pen Cai ($1088 Large / $688 Small) features an amalgamation of 14 deluxe ingredients from the land and sea, such as crispy oyster, braised Irish duck, abalone, fish maw and pig trotter. The pot of gourmet delicacy is braised for hours in a rich and flavourful stock boasting Chinese ham, old chicken, scallop and more.
Chilled Lemongrass Jelly with Lemon Sorbet 4/5
Wrapping up our dinner is the Chilled Lemongrass Jelly with Lemon Sorbet. A light and refreshing dessert that is well received after all the feasting.
That’s not all, new to the celebrations this year is the Golden Nian Gao Tart with Cempedak ($32 for 8 pc) boasting a rich cempedak paste snuggled in-between sweet nian gao and a golden tart shell. Back by popular demand is the addictive Golden Nian Gao Tart with Yam ($28 for 8 pc) that features layers of sweet yam filling and chewy nian gao encased in a golden, buttery tart shell. More spring temptations await, such as Glutinous Red Rice with Chinese Sausage, Dried Shrimp & Mushroom ($78 for 6 pc); Wan Hao’s Signature Ginseng Roast Duck ($96); Koi Fish Shape Osmanthus Water Chestnut Cake ($52); Koi Fish Shape Fresh Mango Pudding ($58), and more.
