Sheraton Towers Singapore celebrates the Lunar New Year with a line-up of reunion feasts from 2 January to 8 February 2020. From traditional Cantonese cuisine with a selection of Chinese set menus to the casual but lavish buffet spread, you can also opt for festive takeaway treats to enjoy your reunion in the comfort of home.
Served in set menus and available for takeaway as well, Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant has created a new “Yu Sheng Loh Hei” Platter. To enhance the textural enjoyment of the yu sheng, Coral clams and sea whelk are added.
Coral Clams Yu Sheng 3.8/5
Coral Clam Yu Sheng Platter ($98/$188) features coral clam atop an array of ingredients such as yam, sweet potato, white radish, carrot, pickled ginger and pomelo.
Salmon Roe and Seawhelk Yu Sheng 3.8/5
A more lavish version will be Salmon Roe and Sea Whelk Yu Sheng Platter ($118/$208) that comes with an additional serving of salmon roe and succulent sea whelk.
Double-boiled Bird’s Nest Soup 3.8/5
Highlights of the set menu include this nourishing Double-boiled Bird’s Nest Soup with Fish Maw, Chicken and Morchella Mushrooms.
Braised Abalone, Stuffed beancurd Skin, Dried Oyster 4/5
Shaped like a yuanbao, I like how the flavour and texture of each individual ingredient - Abalone, Beancurd Skin and Dried Oyster, are being bound together by the braising sauce. Black Moss is added for the auspicious purpose.
Sauteed Lobster Claw, Prawns with Broccoli 3.5/5
Another dish as part of the menu to denote happiness is the Sauteed Lobster Claw, Prawns with Broccoli. The addition of the plump lobster claws to the succulent prawns seems to be a display of abundance and prosperity.
Crispy Roasted Chicken with Black Truffle 3.8/5
For a touch of modernity, Crispy Roasted Chicken is served with Black Truffle gravy. With the skin so beautifully crisped and meat that moist and tender, it might be better to appreciate the meat at it is.
Price starts from $888++ for a table of 10 persons. For bookings and enquiries, please call (65) 68395845/32 or email email@example.com.
For festive takeaways, other than the new Yu Sheng options, Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant has also curated a couple more new auspicious delights alongside traditional favourites.
Lotus Seed Cake with Preserved Meat, Lily Bulb, Chinese Yam & Dried Shrimp 4.8/5
Available for dine-in and takeaway, one of my favourite festive treats is this Lotus Seed Cake with Preserved Meat, Lily Bulb, Chinese Yam & Dried Shrimp ($52). With lotus seed and lily bulb mixed with alongside the Chinese yam to pump up the texture and flavours, each bite is full of surprises and definitely a lot more moreish than the traditional version.
Water Chestnut Cake with Osmanthus 4/5
To balance all the richness of the highly-flavoured savoury dishes, Water Chestnut Cake with Osmanthus ($50/order) is perfect to go along with a cup of Chinese tea.
The Dining Room will also be holding a special Chinese New Year Eve Dinner Buffet on 24 January 2020.
DIY salad with Chicken Bak Kwa and Pok Chui
To complete the experience, you can create your own salad yu sheng at the DIY station with toppings like chicken bak kwa and pok chui (crispy crackers).
Ngoh Hiang Salad with Pineapple and Cucumber
Other small bites include Ngoh Hiang Salad with Pineapple and Cucumber.
Black Pepper Crab Meat Timbale with Avocado and Chives
Indulge in petite but premium Black Pepper Crab Meat Timbale with Avocado and Chives.
Black Sesame Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage, Asparagus and Tobiko 4.5/5
Look out for the belly-warming Black Sesame Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage, Asparagus and Tobiko. Brimming with flavour and texture from the savoury and chewy Chinese sausage, saltish Tobiko, nutty black sesame, crunchy asparagus and of course, the fried rice itself, this dish is such a pleasure to tuck into.
You can also look forward to dishes such as Prosperity Clay Pot featuring an ensemble of premium ingredients including baby abalone, baby lobster, dried scallop, XO Chinese sausage and roasted pork belly, Four Treasure Soup prepared with fish maw, sea cucumber, shredded abalone and crabmeat, Spicy Szechuan Chicken, and Glutinous Rice with Chicken, Shiitake Mushroom and Chinese Sausage.
Price: $98 (adult); $49 (child) Prelude to Chinese New Year Lunch and Dinner Buffet.
