Madame Fan @ The NCO Club - Introducing Over 10 New-to-menu Masterfully Crafted A La Carte Delights


Executive Chinese Chef Pak Chee Yit at Madame Fan has put together more than 10 new masterfully crafted a la carte dishes to the menu, bridging both classic and contemporary culinary techniques, flavours and philosophies.

Pan-fried Foie Gras, Truffle, Caviar with Crispy Beancurd Skin 4/5

We commenced the dinner with some delightful starters, beginning with Pan-fried Foie Gras ($38) that is paired with caviar and truffle. It is served in a crispy beancurd skin tart. Chef Pak incorporated modern ingredients while retaining longstanding heritage of the dish, creating new and different flavours or textures for the palate

Smoky Lishan Oolong Mala Quail Eggs 4.2/5

The Smoky Lishan Oolong Mala Quail Eggs ($16) reminded me of the Chinese Tea Eggs. It is given a modern take by marinating the quail eggs in mala sauce and smoked in premium Lishan oolong tea leaves, resulting in a smoky, earthy and savoury taste profile.

Alaska King Crab Somen 4.2/5

The Alaska King Crab Somen ($22) is a refreshing starter served chill. A hot and sour consomme made from preserved Szechuan vegetables is poured at tableside, giving the silky smooth somen a subtle hint of tangy for the palate.

Kampong Chicken Soup 4.8/5

An indispensable part of Cantonese dining table is the culture of soup drinking. At Madame Fan, Chef Pak's Kampong Chicken Soup ($88) is savoured over two courses. 



The first course is a Chicken Soup whereby the essence of the kampong chicken is drawn from simmering over low heat for four hours, served with cordyceps flower and bamboo pith. Diners can also opt to add on premium fish maw at a supplement of $28 per person. The second course is Hand-shredded Chicken in Aged Vinegar Sauce. The chicken is handed shredded and refreshingly dressed in vinegar ginger sauce.


Braised Cognac Soon Hock

The Braised Cognac Soon Hock (Seasonal Price), doused in cognac is delicately braised to retain its natural juices, paired with Chinese yam, baby cabbage in a rich broth with flavours of shellfish, lobster, crab and clam.

Slow Cooked Wagyu Oxtail

A beautiful dish that is slow cooked to tender is the Wagyu Oxtail ($38). The cooking breaks down the collagen-rich tissues, resulting in a thick, velvety, and almost sticky consistency. It gives the dish a luxurious mouthfeel to the dish in a cinnamon and star anise sauce.

Boston  Lobster with Winter Melon 'Noodles'

The Boston Lobster with Winter Melon 'Noodles' is a creative dish replacing the usual noodle with shredded winter melon. The winter melon noodles are simmered in a spicy pickled pepper to give it a good balance of tangy and sour to the refreshing broth. It is paired with sweet Boston lobster meat for a luxurious indulgence.

Gui Zhou Maotai Ice Cream

Last but not least, we had the Gui Zhou Maotai Ice Cream for dessert, paired with cinnamon chocolate stick and ginseng crumbs. The infuse of alcohol gives the ice cream a sweet, fruity finish with a lovely aroma.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
