For the upcoming Lunar New Year, Jiang Nan Chun (江南春) at Four Seaons Hotel Singapore has specially crafted a range of sumptuous delicacies and specialty menus for family or business festive feasting.
Prosperity Salmon Yu Sheng with Abalone, Japanese Surf Clams and Bird's Nest 4.2/5
A must in every Chinese New Year is the Yu Sheng, tossing to a prosperous and abundant Year of the Dog. Available for dine-in and takeaway at Jiang Nan Chun is the Prosperity Salmon Yu Sheng ($98/$138) with abalone, Japanese Surf Clams and Bird's Nest. Besides the usual shredded vegetables, what stood out is the crispy vermicelli and fried potato strips giving the yu sheng an extra crunch in texture complemented by the dressing of plum sauce and pineapple paste.
Trio of Starter 4/5
Next, we have a trio of starter giving u a glimpse of the offering on the menu. The platter consists of
Roasted Spanish Iberico Pork with Honey Glaze, Greenhouse Tomatoes in Plum Sauce and Poached Chicken in Chinese Wine. My favourite is the roasted spanish iberico park which is a premium version of our local char siew for its succulent texture.
Doubled-boiled Pork Ribs Soup with Sea Whelk, Maka and Dried Scallops 4.2/5
The Doubled-boiled Pork Ribs Soup ($38/pax) with Sea Whelk, Maka and Dried Scallops is a comforting and nourishing bowl of soup. The bowl of soup is packed with depth, drawn from extracting the essence of the ingredients through double boiling.
Wok-fried Boston Lobster in Black Bean Sauce 4.2/5
Most lobster dishes are usually baked or poached but the Wok-fried Boston Lobster in Black Bean Sauce ($38/pax) is a good chance from the norm. The black bean sauce goes well with the bouncy lobster meat, with a hint of smokey wok-hei.
Wok Fried Kai Lan 4.2/5 and Fried Rice 4.5/5
The Wok Fried Kai Lan with Preserved Sausages ($32 per serving) retains a nice crunch with a layer of aromatic flavour from the preserved sausages. Noteworthy is the Fried Rice with Crab Meat, Butterscotch Mushrooms and Dried Scallops ($14/pax). The fragrant and fluffy rice is elevated further by frying in abalone sauce, giving it an extra boost in flavour.
Hot Almond Cream with Egg White 4.8/5 and Coconut Nian Gao 4/5
For dessert, I had the Hot Almond Cream with Egg White and Coconut Nian Gao. I really enjoy the smooth and silky hot almond cream with egg white. Almond can be quite strong in flavour and acquire to some but this is well balanced, smoothing and comforting.
