Full of Luck Restaurant at Holland Village, known for its modern touch for classic Cantonese fare has launched a new menu to tantalise the taste buds of its diners. We dropped by the restaurant recently to try out some of the new dishes on the new menu.
Sesame Prawn Toast with Yuzu Mayonnaise 3/5
We started our dinner with some light bites such as the Sesame Prawn Toast with Yuzu Mayonnaise ($12) and Salted Egg Molten Lava Cheese Tart ($10 for 3pc). Prawn toast is not new. What makes the classic dim sum item different from the norm is the addition of yuzu in the sauce, enliven the enjoyment.
Salted Egg Molten Lava Cheese Tart 3/5
Quite similar to the Hokkaido cheese tart, the Salted Egg Molten Lava Cheese Tart ($10 for 3pc) is an upgraded version with oozing salted egg filling. A delightfully sweet and savoury combination. However, I find it a bit stretch for modern Cantonese cuisine.
Black Vinegar Pork Ribs 4/5
One of my favourite dishes is Black Vinegar Pork Ribs. It has a beautiful coat of sticky sweetness complementing the folk tender pork ribs. This is best to have together with a bowl of steam rice.
Chicken Poached Rice in Collagen Broth
A hearty and comforting bowl is the Chicken Poached Rice in Collagen Broth ($16). A housemade broth that is slow-boiled for hours is poured into the pot of rice and chicken. Looking out for the dancing rice, when the fried rice crisps are poured into the sizzling hot broth. We were told that their Poached Rice with Fish in Pumpkin Broth is as good too.
Crispy Pu-Er Tea Smoked Chicken 4.2/5
We waited for a while for the Crispy Pu-Er Tea Smoked Chicken ($20), but it is worthwhile. It is a delightful aromatic dish. The chicken is tender and juicy, with super crispy skin. I also like the thoughtful touch of the Japanese cucumbers marinated with osmanthus and plum sauce at the side that helps to cut the grease. It even comes with homemade ginger-scallion sauce to complement the smoked chicken.
Pandan-infused Black Glutinous Rice with Mango (Hot) 3/5
For dessert, we tried both the Pandan-infused Black Glutinous Rice with Mango (Hot) and Steamed Milk Pudding with Ginger (Chilled). Unfortunately, dessert is not their forte. The combination for the Pandan-infused Black Glutinous Rice with Mango (Hot) is a bit weird for me. I would prefer to stick with the classic. The Steamed Milk Pudding with Ginger is also not as silky and smooth as I would have liked.
Steamed Milk Pudding with Ginger (Chilled) 3/5
With the new menu launched, Full of Luck Restaurant has also rolled out a few promotions. If you are looking for a quick or casual business lunch, there is Weekday Lunch Delight priced at $12.80 with delectable choices of appetisers, mains and beverages. Citibank credit cards member will also get to enjoy 15% discount on regular priced items up to 28 February 2020.
Note: This is an inviting tasting.
