5 ON 25 @ Andaz Singapore - Bountiful Reunions with Exquisite Lunar New Year dishes, Curated Set Menus, and Takeaway Goodies


5 ON 25 in Andaz Singapore will launch its Lunar New Year menu from 29th January 2024 until 24th February 2024. Curated by 5 ON 25's Head Chinese Chef Lim Hong Lih, the Lunar New Year menu includes à la carte dishes, yu sheng, pen cai, dim sum, and set courses available for lunch and dinner.

Yu Sheng 4/5

We started with its Yu Sheng( $88/3-6 pax and $138/ 7-10pax), served with sustainably sourced New Zealand King Salmon, topped with fried yam, homemade candied walnuts, and zesty golden plum dressing. What stood out for me were the sweet and crunchy candied walnuts, providing a moreish textural and flavour contrast to the overall dish. Additional seafood toppings are available: Jade Tiger Abalone, Sustainable Australian King Scallops, and Australian Spiny Lobster at an additional cost starting from $38. Available for dine-in and takeaways.

Dim Sum 5/5

Our starter was from the Dim Sum Lunch menu, featuring Bailing Mushroom, Wood Ear & Bamboo Shoot Dumpling, Wagyu Beef Egg Tart and Taro Fritter. The dumpling had a tender skin encasing well-seasoned filling that provided a delightful textural bite. The Taro fritter's crust was light and airy, and within was filled with delectable Yunnan Mushrooms. The Wagyu Beef Egg Tart had a very interesting tangy and creamy custard loaded with wagyu beef, complemented by a buttery and flaky crust.

Double-boiled Fish Bone Soup, Kampong Chicken, Superior Bird's Nest 4/5

The soup course was from one of the Set Dinner menus, a luxurious Double-boiled Fish Bone Soup with Kampong Chicken and Superior Bird's Nest.

Pen Cai 4.5/5

We had the chance to try the Pen Cai, which is for takeaway only. Braised for eight hours, each pot comprises 12 premium delicacies, including six-head abalone, fish maw, sustainable tiger prawns, king scallops, roasted pork, duck, and dried oysters. In particular, the braised duck feet stood out - They were so delicate and tender, with a slight chewiness. The fish maw was equally enjoyable with its gelatinous texture. 5 ON 25 Pen Cai is priced at $398 (4 pax), $598 (6 pax), and $798 (8 pax). A 24-hour advance notice requirement is required.

Steamed Turbot Fillet ‘Hong Kong’ Style 4.5/5

The Steamed Turbot Fillet 'Hong Kong' Style is a fish dish from the Set Dinner menu. It was perfectly steamed, offering a firm and flaky texture.

Crispy Egg Noodles 4/5

The most premium Set Dinner menu features Crispy Egg Noodles served with Half Maine Lobster Tail, topped with Golden Chives and Crispy Garlic for flavour nuances. The lobster was succulent and firm, pairing well with the savoury crispy noodles.

Red Bean Soup, Dried Tangerine Peel 4.8/5

Chilled Cream Of Mango 4/5

We had the joy of trying a few desserts, among which my favourite were the Chilled Cream Of Mango and Red Bean Soup. The latter was nourishing and comforting, laced with fragrant notes of Dried Tangerine Peel.
