White Rose Café @ York Hotel - Debuts Classic All-Time Favourite Cantonese Claypot Rice Specials


White Rose Café at York Hotel has recently launched its very first Claypot Rice Specials, available for a limited time only from 1 October to 30 November 2023. Four distinctly flavoured claypot rice are on the menu - Seafood Pao Fan, Wok-fried Black Pepper Angus Beef Claypot Rice, Black Olive Shrimp Claypot Rice, and Cantonese-style Chicken and Chinese Sausage Claypot Rice. Executive Chef Ho Chan Fei recreated this classic with all-time favourite Cantonese style to modern Asian flavours, with precise control of time, heat, and balance of the claypot during the cooking process to avoid burnt rice.

Wok-fried Black Pepper Angus Beef 3.8/5

Wok-fried Black Pepper Angus Beef in Claypot was a rare delight, tantalizing with tender Angus beef coated in black pepper sauce and accompanied by an onsen egg. The sautéed onion, ginger, and spring onion added sweetness and a touch of freshness to elevate the overall taste. The onsen egg gave an extra oomph to the dish.

Black Olive Shrimp Fried Rice 4.2/5

Black Olive Shrimp Fried Rice is uniquely delicious, a savoury Thai-Chinese style claypot rice featuring olive fried rice with egg as the base, topped with basil minced pork and crunchy cashew nuts. The texture of this dish was highly enjoyable, and the onsen egg beautifully bound the ingredients together.

Cantonese-style Chicken and Chinese Sausage Claypot Rice 4.2/5

The classic flavour was good. The Cantonese-style Chicken and Chinese Sausage Claypot Rice is loaded with chicken, preserved Chinese chicken sausage, Chinese mushrooms, onsen egg, bok choy, and coated in dark soy sauce. The chicken was tender and exceptionally well-flavoured from marination. The sausages added richness and a mouthwatering depth of flavour to the dish, and I particularly enjoyed the chunks of mushrooms and bok choy, which complemented the meat perfectly.

Seafood Pao Fun 3/5

Seafood Pao Fun features cooked rice soaked in a sweet and savoury broth served with sea prawns, clams, and sliced fish and topped with crispy fried garlic for a burst of flavour. While it was tasty, it was rather average.

Sarawak Kolo Mee 3.5/5

Sarawak Kolo Mee is a new addition to their à la carte menu, served with wanton on the side. The kolo mee is flavoured with scallion oil and crispy pork lard bites, a simple combination that many of us found to be moreish and delicious. Personally, I would prefer the noodles to be more al dente.

Singapore Rojak 4.5/5

Singapore Rojak is an amped-up version that delivers satisfaction. The culinary team went through more than 20 attempts to perfect the rojak recipe, even with precision in the cut of the ingredients. The result is a refreshing dish with chunky pineapples, cucumbers, and turnips, enhanced by the crunch of youtiao and an extra bite from jellyfish, making it irresistibly delicious. The prawn paste was elevated with calamansi, carrying hints of ginger flower, which paired exceptionally well with the distinct flavour of the century egg.
