Upholding the traditions of the Chinese New Year, Executive Chef Eric Neo and his team has put together a collection of festive culinary masterpieces and delightful Lunar New Year goodies to usher in the Year of the Pig at Man Fu Yuan, Intercontinental Singapore.
Prosperity Yu Sheng
Toss to a prosperous year with the new 60-inch Prosperity Yu Sheng ($138). The Chinese character on the Yu Sheng is 亥 ("Hai), symbolizing the twelfth earthly branch the pig is associated with in the sexagenary cycle. The colour prosperity yu sheng consists of baby abalone, Hokkaido scallops, salmon, pork crackling, apple sauce and shallot oil
Double-boiled Chicken Consomme
A comforting and yet nourishing soup is the Double-boiled Chicken Consomme. Clean tasting but packed with rich depth in flavours, you can also find lush ingredients such as nameko mushrooms, sea cucumber, fish maw and bird's nest in it.
Man Fu Yuan Abundance Treasure Pot
One of the highlights at Man Fu Yuan is the Abundance Treasure Pot ($398) brimming with over 18 different ingredients. In the treasure pot, feast to a pot of braised pig's trotters, 10-head whole abalone, fish maw, sea cucumber, Hokkaido scallops, roast duck, goose web, dried oysters, prawns, sea whelk, chicken wing, flower mushroom, cabbage, fried bean curd skin, fried yam, cured meat sausage, liver sausage and fatt choy.
Roasted Pork Belly Roulade with Minced Seafood
New this year is the Roasted Pork Belly Roulade with Minced Seafood ($368 for 4kg). The crackling skin and juicy meat is really enjoyable. However I did not quite like the minced seafood stuffing in between. I still prefer their signature suckling pig stuffed with glutinous rice.
Herbal Chicken in Lotus Leaf
A beautifully executed dish is the Herbal Chicken in Lotus Leaf. It is quite amazing how the chef manage to roll the chicken into a ball. The aroma of the herbs managed to infuse and elevated the appreciation of the tender poultry.
Lobster, Egg Noodles, XO Chilli Sauce
Last but not least we wrapped out our dinner with the Lobster Egg Noodles in XO Chilli Sauce. This slurping goodness is packed with the unami XO chilli sauce, boosted by the addition of freshly fried pork lard. The bountiful lobster lavish the whole enjoyment.
