A la carte menu
The a la carte menu crafted by Executive Chinese Chef Kong Hing Sun includes the pan-fried wagyu beef in truffle sauce, braised whole green lip abalone and goose web and steamed Canadian sea perch with golden mushroom and black fungus.
The sea perch with barbecued sauce is braised in a flavourful sauce before being baked. The flavours have fully penetrated into the flesh of the fish.
Festive set menu
The festive set menu is available from 18 January till 24 February 2013, ranging from S$90++ per person to S$638++ for 6 persons. Highlights include baked beef cheek with salt and spices, stewed Boston lobster tail with lemon sauce, and stir-fried scallop and coral clam drizzled with XO chilli sauce.
The stewed Boston lobster tail with lemon sauce is a fusion of east and west with laksa leaves imparting an alluring aroma and chilli providing a hint of spice. The luscious lemon sauce brings everything together on the palate. This dish will leave you yearning for more.
For a more well-rounded feast, the wok-fried glutinous rice with Hong Kong cured sausages will gratify. Seasoning and flavour is evenly interspersed throughout, permeating every grain of rice.
Conclude your meal with the glutinous rice dumpling, a dish that symbolises togetherness. Immersed in a milky almond tea, this dessert is not overtly sweet.
Take one bite of the steamed peanut nian gao, and familiar flavours will start to come through. It reminds one of muah chee, with its sticky glutinous texture, coated with crushed peanuts. This is a highlight!
Perfect for gifts, the Four Treasures mini nian gao (S$48) includes traditional nian gao with gula melaka, Hokkaido pumpkin nian gao, carrot cake with Chinese sausage and black sesame nian gao.
