Abalone & Salmon with Gold Foil Lo Hei in ‘Shun De’ Style from S$92.00++
Toss to prosperity with Yan’s signature savoury Shun De style yusheng that is available for dine-in only. The yusheng features the crispy vermicelli crowned with shredded purple and yellow sweet potatoes, pickled ginger, gold flakes and decorated with vegetables and sesame seed. Fresh slices of salmon and braised abalone is served as well. This is one of my all-time favourite yusheng every year.
Signature Roast Crispy Suckling Pig & Roasted Duck Marinated with Mandarin peel Sauce
Double-boiled Chicken Soup with Morel ‘Yang Du Jun’ and Fish Maw
Comforting and nourishing double-boiled chicken soup with morel and fish maw.
Steamed Soon Hock with Preserved Lemon Peel Sauce
年年有余 Nian Nian You Yu (May every year ends with ample surplus), which fish is a must-have dish for the celebration every year. Steamed Soon Hock has the delicate taste and texture with mildly tart but lemony flavour from the house-made peel sauce and crispy garlic is definitely a good choice dish.
Wok-fried Local Lobster Tail with Crab Meat & Crab Roe Superior Sauce
Auspicious noodle dishes such as Wok-Fried Local Lobster Tail with Ee Fu Noodles and Wok-fried Scallops with XO Sauce and Mee Pok Noodles convey well-wishes for longevity. Lobster, considered to bring good luck with its bright red hues, is also offered in the Wok-fried Local Lobster Tail with Crab Meat & Crab Roe Superior Sauce. The luscious sauce combines the delicate sweetness of shredded crab meat and crab roe for an alluring pairing with the lobster tail.
Yàn Harvest Pen Cai from S$325.00++
Not to miss is the luxury Yàn Harvest Pen Cai. The treasure trove features layers of 18 delicacies such as 6-head abalone, sea cucumber, prawns, whole conpoy, collagen-rich pork tendons, king grouper fillet, scallops, roast pork, soya chicken, and roast duck. Each ingredient is individually prepared, then combined in a claypot and simmered in a flavourful braised duck sauce.
Chilled Pumpkin Cream with Aloe Vera and Deep-fried Sesame Rice Ball
Bearing well-wishes are desserts such as Chilled Pumpkin Cream with Aloe Vera and Deep-Fried Sesame Rice Ball filled with lotus paste. Golden pumpkin is well-loved during new year celebrations as a symbol of bountifulness and prosperity. Sesame balls not only represent luck with its round shape and caramel gold colour, but also growth in endeavours through its expansion from a small dough ball to a puffed parcel after it is deep-fried.
