A specially dedicated counter comprising of Fortune Yee Sang, as well as the Emperors Twin Dome (Poon Choi and Yook Poon) is made available for diners. The prerequisite dish for Chinese New Year is definitely the Fortune Yee Sang, which is served with salmon and a variety of sauces and condiments.
On the other hand, The Emperors Twin Dome is presented with Chinese treasures of abalone, black mushroom, scallops, prawns, fish maw, sea cucumber, dry oysters and broccoli.
The next first thing that catches your eye is the seafood on ice. It has a fine selection of Tiger Prawns, Scallops, New Zealand Half-Shell Mussels or Half-Shell Oysters. There is also an array of crisp greens with a range of salad dressings.
Besides, there are palate-cleansing appetizers like Baby Octopus Salad with Spicy Jellyfish, Prawns with Honeydew Salad, Smoked Salmon Platter, White Tuna Tataki with Citrus Dressing, and the Salmon Gravlax.
The menu is vast and includes plenty of hot Chinese staples. An interesting offering is Chef Alex’s Village-Style Steamed Seabass. Besides, there is the Lotus Leaf Fried Rice with Smoked Turkey & Dried Shrimp, Broccoli with Fatt Choy, Pacific Clams and Dried Oysters, and the moderately spicy Kong Poh Prawn with Cashew Nut.
As for hot soup choices, there is the humble Pumpkin Cream Soup and the Szechuan Seafood Soup. The latter had a deep, rich flavour and a nice touch of vinegar and chili kick. If you are a noodle fan, expect to savor the Green Tea Dan Dan Noodles. Served with chicken ragout along with condiments of cucumber, spring onions, and sesame seeds, this is a nice break away from the typical fried noodles.
In addition, there are also Peking Duck Roll (served with pancake, cucumber & sauce) and Roasted Lamb Leg with Parmesan Herb Crust & Mongolian Sauce.
For desserts, fill your tummy with the many Chinese and Western sweet creations. A wide variety of traditional classic desserts such as Sesame Ball, Tao Fu Fa with Brown Sugar, Double Boil Peach Gum with Red Dates, and Mochi are offered. The latter is best described as glutinous rice ball, and the chef had it made with a filling of matcha, red bean, and peanut paste.
For Western choices, choose from the Chocolate Bread Butter Pudding, Moist Chocolate Cake, or the deeply flavored coffee Tiramisu cake. Also not to be missed out is Japanese Cheese Cake, extremely light and melts away in the mouth.
