Ushering in the Year of Rat at Man Fu Yuan with a luxurious selection of Lunar New Year delicacies and prix-fixe menus from 6 January to 8 February 2020. This year, Executive Sous Chef Aaron Tan and his team have put together eight prix-fixe menus and a collection of auspicious dishes.
Toss to a successful year ahead with the new 60-inch Treasure Yu Sheng adorned with Abalone, Hokkaido scallops, salmon crisp fish skin, and refreshing passionfruit roselle sauce, shaped in the form of the Chinese character "Yuan" (苑) which symbolises a garden of plenty.
Superior Pumpkin Bisque
A change from the usual double-boiled soup for Chinese dinner is the Superior Pumpkin Bisque. It is a welcoming change. A western-style soup incorporating Asian ingredients such as Chinese cabbage, fish maw, Chinese cured meat and Sarawak bird's nest.
Signature Smoked Duck
Not to be missed is the Signature Smoked Duck with Superior Chinese Herbal Stock ($88). The fragrant and tender smoked duck is good to serve up to 5 pax and available for takeaway.
Man Fu Yuan Abundance Treasure Pot
One of the dishes I look forward to during Lunar New Year is the Pen Cai. Over at Man Fu Yuan, the Abundance Treasure Pot ($388) is brimming with 18 different ingredients. They are braised sea cucumber, 10-head abalone, Canadian lobster, Hokkaido scallops, prawns, fish maw, goose web, pig's trotters, whelk, oysters, chicken wings, preserved meat sausage, Yunnan black tiger palm mushroom, cabbage, wheat gluten, fried yam and fatty choy.
I have heard so much about Man Fu Yuan exclusive and premium Steamboat, and I finally get to try it. For this lunar new year, guests will be able to purchase 10 of the steamboat ingredients to dine in the comfort of their home. They are Eight-head abalone, minced Hokkaido scallops ($108), Homemade crab claw, minced fresh prawns ($28), USA beef rib eye ($48), Poached Drunken Chicken, Chinese herbs, huadiao Chinese wine ($22), Traditional fresh prawn dumplings ($26), Minced pork dumplings, mushrooms ($22), Homemade premium USA Angus beef balls, water chestnuts ($32), Homemade crab meat balls, prawns ($32), Dace fish balls, fatt choy ($26), and Minced pork balls, dried oysters ($32)
Roasted Suckling Pig
A signature at Man Fu Yuan is the Roasted Suckling Pig stuffed with Preserved Cured Meats and Five Grain Glutinous Rice. A multi-sensual enjoyment with crackling skin and succulent meat. The preserved cured meats enhanced the flavours while the sticky glutinous rice provides the extra texture. This is so shiok.
Chilled Coconut Jelly, Butterfly Pea Flower Sesame Mochi, Pineapple Balls.
Wrapping up the dinner, I have the Chilled Coconut Jelly, Butterfly Pea Flower Sesame Mochi and Pineapple Balls. My favourite is the light and refreshing chilled coconut jelly paired with Aloe Vera and Snow Bird's Nest.
