Kaleidoscope of Prosperity 'Shun De' Style 4.2/5
For a different style of Yusheng, Yan Cantonese Restaurant offers the Kaleidoscope of Prosperity 'Shun De' Style ($138). It is savoury rather than the usual sweet type. The Shunde-style yusheng presents a mountain of crispy vermicelli adorned with shreds of purple and yellow sweet potatoes, kailan, and pickled ginger. Surrounding it is a vibrant medley of vegetables, crushed peanuts, sesame seeds, and youtiao, as well as slices of fresh yellowtail, and topped with gold flakes and crunchy coils of mee pok.
Double-boiled Peru Maca Soup with Dried Seafood 4.5/5
Lunar New Year feast doesn't mean we can't eat healthily. The Double-boiled Peru Maca Soup with Dried Seafood ($90/$180) is a nourishing soup. The Peru maca is a Peruvian plant reputed for energy boosting and reduces blood pressure. Sea whelk is added to balance the yin of the body.
Sauteed Prawns with Vegetables accompanied with Deep-fried Mango and Scallop Roll 4/5

Fish is a must-have during Chinese New Year, symbolising surplus and abundance for the new year. At Yan, the wild-caught Steamed Star Grouper is deboned and served with Yunnan preserved vegetables, fresh cordyceps flowers and chye sim.

Pan-Fried Nian Gao 4.2/5
