Well known for their tantalising Asian and International delights, Ellenborough Market Cafe at Swissotel Merchant Court has launched a selection of Prosperity Set meals and buffet offerings featuring a variety of ambrosial festive creations to usher in the Lunar New Year. Available from 5 February to 2 March 2018, diners can choose from two different sets of menu at $788 per table of 10 or $988 per table of 10.
Salmon Yu Sheng 4.5/5
In all Lunar New Year reunion dinners, a must-have to start off the evening is the Salmon Yu Sheng to toss for abundance, prosperity and good fortune for the year ahead. Consisting of a vibrant medley of shredded vegetables and assorted toppings, the plating of the yusheng resemble that of a cute dog, specially created for the year of that particular Chinese zodiac. It is also served with generous servings of fresh salmon slices, sweet plum sauce and other condiments before the Lo Hei commences.
Double-Boiled Fish Maw with Dried Scallop and Cordycep Flower 4.2/5
The Double-Boiled Fish Maw with Dried Scallop and Cordycep Flower comes in a clear double boiled soup packed with a robust flavour of herbs essence, and a subtle hint of sweetness from the scallop.
Imperial Herbal Chicken 4.5/5
With a strong herbal aroma infused in the meat soaked in a rich herbal broth, the Imperial Herbal Chicken is a welcoming dish full of herbal goodness. While the meat boasts a tender texture that I really enjoyed, the infusion of the herbal essence makes it an even more comforting experience.
Hong Kong Style Fried Garoupa 4/5
The Hong Kong Style Fried Garoupa comes in a sizable whole portion, deep fried and doused in an appetising sweet-savoury sauce. Underneath is soft, tender meat with a melt-in-the-mouth consistency.
Wok-fried Asparagus with Pearl Scallop in XO Sauce 4.2/5
While I enjoyed the crunchy asparagus and capsicum cooked in XO sauce, the highlight of the Wok-fried Asparagus with Pearl Scallop in XO sauce is the fresh and juicy scallops executed excellently with a tinge of spice and sauce fragrance.
Braised Abalone and Sea Cucumber with Australian Broccoli 4.2/5
Thick slices of sea cucumber, juicy braised abalone and crunchy broccoli render the Braised Abalone and Sea Cucumber with Australian Broccoli an enjoyable dish, especially with the full-bodied savoury gravy that complement excellently with the rest of the ingredients.
Fried Glutinous Rice Wrapped in Lotus Leaf 4/5
For something more substantial, the Fried Glutinous Rice Wrapped in Lotus Leaf comes in a large portion of fragrant glutinous rice, with a mix of lup cheong or Chinese sausage with mushrooms.
Bring the meal to a sweet finale with the Double-boiled “Hasma” with Red Dates, a nourishing bowl of double-boiled soup filled with nutrition value. The red dates lend a subtle sweetness to the double boiled soup, delivering a sweet touch to the dish.
With Lunar New Year just around the corner, diners can look forward to enojying a scrumptious dinner with loved ones at the Ellenborough Market Cafe, Swissotel Merchant Court Singapore which is a great choice for the reunion event.
