As for the menu, Chef Martin Foo has redesign and exploring new ground of modern touches, while preserving the heritage of traditional Chinese cuisine. I attended the media tasting session and here are the highlights of the night:
Deep-fried Chive Steam Pancake S$14.80++
Everyone’s favourite of the night that comprises a tasty combination of sweet chives stem, minced prawns and bits of Chinese ‘lap cheong’ between sheets of spring roll skin. You couldn’t stop at the first piece. Trust me!
Roasted Irish Duck with Black Truffle
S$26.00++ for regular | S$48.00++ (half) | S$98.00++ (whole)
Signature classic roasted duck is a must try dish when you dine in here. Crisp skin with succulent duck meat and the aroma of truffle oil makes a good combo.
Double-boiled Chicken Soup with Peruvian Ginseng and Sea Whelk S$26.00++
Comforting broth made with Peruvian Ginseng and sea whelk. Rich-tasting soup you wouldn’t want to miss it when you are dining here.
Braised Sea Cucumber with Grandma’s Braised Pork Belly S$36.00++
Featuring braised Australian sea cucumber with slippery and tender texture infused with flavours of the ingredients and sauce. The braised pork belly tasted soft and tender. It literally melts in your mouth. This is best to go with a bowl of white rice.
Sauteed Beef Cube with Shishito Peppers in Black Pepper Sauce S$36.00++
Make sure you eat it with a bowl of white rice. Chef uses premium beef short-rib cubes with mildly-spicy Shishito peppers, which are first dry-roasted in a wok.
Fried Crispy Rice and Orzo Pasta with Prawn & Shrimp S$26.00++
Al-dente grains of orzo pasta tossed over high heat with prawns, char siew and petite cubes of red and green capsicums, with a final sprinkling of crispy sakura ebi and deep-fried rice grains for textural contrast. Shiok!
