Signature Braised 10-Head Australian Dried Abalone in Abalone Sauce S$228.00++ per piece
The chef took a whole week to prepare the dish from rehydrating to simmering and braising the dried abalone. This explains the bouncy texture and fork tender abalone with umami abalone sauce. It is indeed a luxury dish to slowly savour it.
Stewed Chicken Claw
Not everyone is a fan of chicken claw aka chicken feet but I liked it. The stewed method gives a nice gelatinous layer with savoury abalone sauce all over it. The abalone sauce is made with dried abalone sauce, concentrated chicken broth and jinhua ham.
Crispy Golden Tofu
Crispy exterior and silky soft interior tofu which is recommended to order when you are here.
Signature Charred Honey BBQ Kurobuta Pork S$20.00++ & Crackling Pork Belly S$18.00++
Kurobuta Pork is prepared Hong Kong style with a combination of savoury and sweet. You can taste the slightly char and smoky flavour too. Not to miss the crunchy and fatty pork belly too.
Steamed Live Marble Goby ‘Soon Hock’ with Garlic and Beancurd Skin S$13.00 per 100gm
Beautifully steamed fish that comes with beancurd skin and Shunde-style soy sauce.
Baked Live Prawn with Vermicelli in Black and White Pepper S$10.00++ per 100gm
Peppery flavour with the sweetness from the baked live prawn. One of the favourite dish of the night.
Poached Rice with Assorted Seafood in Lobster Broth S$52.00++
Pao Fan is available here as well. It comes in lobster broth with ingredients like scallop and crab meat in it. And of course the crispy rice for the sizzling and texture flavours to complete the pao fan experience.
