As the Lunar New Year approaches, modern-Cantonese restaurant Full of Luck Restaurant at Holland Village rolls out five different set menus, featuring a culinary line up of contemporary Cantonese classics and festive favourites. With five menus ranging from $118-$668 to cater to 2-10 pax, you can even toss the yu sheng with just two people at the table! Set menus are available for dine-in till 19 Feb 2019.
Full of Luck’s Yu Sheng with Smoked Salmon & Yuzu Dressing 4/5
We had the Harmony with Joy Set ($238 - per table of 4 pax). Toss the ubiquitous yusheng to a year of prosperity and good fortune with fresh smoked salmon slices, fruit popping boba to impart a refreshing tangy-sweetness to the colourful stack of julienned accompaniments, brightened by flavourful, tangy notes of yuzu. Full of Luck’s Yu Sheng with Smoked Salmon & Yuzu Dressing raises the 'porksperity' ante with a cute pig design amid the melange of delightful colours, flavours and textures.
Peace & Bliss Fish Maw Clam Soup 4/5
Next on the menu is the Peace & Bliss Fish Maw Clam Soup. Loaded with a medley of fresh premium ingredients such as fish maw, clams, chicken chunks, red dates in a flavourful broth, the comforting bowl of superior soup is a welcoming starter to the rest of the richer savoury dishes.
Traditional Wok Fried Black Garlic Prawns 4.2/5
The Traditional Wok Fried Black Garlic Prawns features fresh bouncy prawns seasoned with a tinge of fragrant black garlic spice, which makes it so wonderfully flavourful without being too overwhelming. The bed of vegetables below adds a nice crunch to the dish as well.
Herbal Emperor Chicken 4/5
There is no better way to usher in the new year with a delicious and nutritious dish. Boasting an easily-falls-apart tenderness, the Herbal Emperor Chicken has a rich herbal flavour as the taste is infused in the chicken while it cooks, and also further steeped in a rich herbal broth when served.
Crunchy Medley of Vegetables 3.5/5
The Crunchy Medley of Vegetables with Lilybulb comes in a medley of crunchy vegetables. While well received for its crunchy texture and clean taste, I personally thought the dish can be more flavourful, as the vegetables may be a tad bland on its own.
Longevity Fish Noodles with Crabmeat and X.O Chilli 4.2/5
One of my favourite dish on the menu is the Longevity Fish Noodles with Crabmeat and X.O Chilli. Made using fish paste, the noodles are al dente with a hint of fish flavour, yet not too fishy. Also served with fresh crabmeat, the noodles is cooked in X.O chilli to give it a subtle spice fragrance which elevates the whole enjoyment.
Water Chestnut Cake with Osmanthus Fragrance 3.8/5, Traditional Pan Fried Nian Gao 4/5
End the meal on a sweet note with their Refreshing Water Chestnut Cake with Osmanthus Fragrance. However, I find the osmanthus flavour to be a tad too bland. The Traditional Pan Fried Nian Gao with Egg fares better with a nice chewy texture and a taste which is not too sweet. Definitely one of the better ones I had.
