Usher in an abundant and charming Year of the Rat at Jade Restaurant at The Fullerton Hotel with exquisite dishes that honour tradition while embracing the contemporary. Chinese Executive Chef Leong has created an ensemble of prosperous feasts from 06 January to 08 February 2020, paying tribute to the first animal of the Chinese zodiac.
Gold Rush Salmon Yu Sheng
This year Chef Leong has come up with the Special Edition Gold Rush Salmon Yu Sheng ($388++). The yu sheng is arranged in a striking image of a rat treasuring a traditional gold coin, painstakingly crafted from white, green and pink radish strips. What surprises me is the cranberry cheese which complements the champagne jelly and the tangy-sweet honey pineapple dressing excellently. Three days advance order is required for this special edition gold rush salmon yu sheng.
Mini Pot of Abundance
Instead of a huge pot of pen cai, this is served in an individual pot covered in parchment paper to keep the essence locked it while cooking. In the Mini Pot of Abundance ($58++ per pax), diners will get to indulge in premium ingredients such as Braised Abalone, Fish Maw, Sea Cucumber, Chinese Cabbage, Flower Mushrooms, Roasted Garlic, Stewed Pork Trotter, Deep-fried Pork Ball and Yam.
Full of Luck Deep-fried Seabass
Art on the plate is the Full of Luck Deep-fried Seabass ($280++). The fish is sliced in crisscrossed section, then deep-fried in hot oil to an attractive golden crisp. Bring this dish together is the sweet peach sauce, which adds an auspicious touch that signifies longevity and good health. This needs to be pre-order a day in advance.
Wok-fried Boston Lobster with Leek and Preserved Meat
A delightful combination is the Wok-fried Boston Lobster with Leek and Preserved Meat ($88++ per 700g). Boston Lobster is usually served with noodles or eaten with baked cheese. Embracing the Lunar New Year celebration, Chef Leong has wok-fried the Boston lobster together with leek and preserved meat; traditional ingredients seen during Chinese New Year. By doing so, the preserved meat gives the succulent lobster meat an extra layer of aroma, elevating the enjoyment.
Hot Stone Silver Needles Noodles with Truffle Meat Sauce
Hot Sweet Soup with Snow Lotus, Honey Dates, Pear and Tang Yuan
Wrapping up the meal is the Hot Sweet Soup with Snow Lotus, Honey Dates, Pear and Tang Yuan ($18 per portion). This traditional hot dessert soup brings together nutrient and health rich ingredients, simmered together to soothe the stomach after a rich meal.
Returning every year in a different Zodiac animal shape, the housemade all-butter Pineapple Cookies are created by Chef Leong and a must for your home. $8++ for a pair (dine-in) and S$38+ for a box of nine (takeaway only)
Note: This is an invited tasting.
