For the Year of Rat, Chef Ku Keung from Golden Peony at Conrad Centennial Singapore has prepared a selection of signature dishes, as well as six specially curated set menus for a gastronomic reunion experience. The Chinese New Year dishes and takeaways are available from 6 January to 8 February 2020.
Fortune Salmon and Crispy White Bait Yu Sheng
Available for more dine-in and takeaway is the Fortune Salmon and Crispy White Bait Yu Sheng ($68/ $128). The addition of the crispy whitebait provides the extra textural enjoyment, tossing to a year of abundance and prosperity.
New Bedford Scallop
The sweet and plump New Bedford Scallop is dressed in Butternut Pumpkin Sauce and topped with Crispy Potato Crumbs for texture.
Crispy Soft Shell Crab, Parsnip Puree with Spiced Salt
Somewhat similar to the Bi Feng Tang cooking style, The Crispy Soft Shell Crab is paired with parsnip puree with spiced salt.
Prosperity Eight Treasure Congee with Black Truffle
The highlight goes to the Prosperity Eight Treasure Congee with Black Truffle. Not only does it look pretty in presentation, but it also tastes heavenly too. The comforting bowl of congee is smooth and silky, with the taste further elevated by the addition of black truffle. I would add the pickled lettuce and youtiao for complete enjoyment of the congee.
Steamed Sea Perch with Spiced Coconut Milk
A new creation is the Steamed Sea Perch with Spiced Coconut Milk. It is an adventurous take for a Cantonese restaurant. It is like having curry fish head but in a more refined manner, though I wish the spiced coconut milk can be spicier.
Roasted Suckling Pig filled with Portuguese Chicken Rice
A signature at Golden Peony is their Roasted Suckling Pig. Every year the restaurant will introduce a unique stuffing for the suckling pig. This year the suckling pig is filled with Portuguese chicken rice.
Chilled Dragon Fruit with Crystal Ball
Wrapping up our meal is the Chilled Dragon Fruit with Crystal Ball. The chilled soup tangy, yet refreshing with a subtle fruity sweetness.
