For this year’s yee sang extravaganza, the 28K Gold Wealthy Koi Yee Sang (MYR168) makes an ideal centrepiece to any meal. Sculpted to perfection by Chef James Ho and his talented team, diners who take a chance on this culinary masterpiece will have a field day tossing to prosperity before digging in to premium ingredients such as addictive salted egg yolk crispy fish skin, fresh Atlantic salmon sashimi and briny sea caviar.
Next up is the Auspicious Ginseng Chicken Broth, a comforting bowl of joy that will soothe almost any ailment. Hearty and nutritious, each serving of broth comes stewed with briny-sweet sea whelks, fish maw and bamboo pith. Fans of seafood with voracious appetites can also have a go at the Boston Big Brother (MYR428), an indulgent feast featuring a massive Boston lobster deep-fried with garlic and served with a side of braised abalone, sweet chilli sauce and crunchy prawn cracker.
For those with room in their belly to spare, the Longevity Lamb makes for a fine addition to any meal. Pan-seared to perfection, each lamb rack comes served with a side of crisp fresh salad and tasty white radish cake with a delightful texture that just melts in your mouth. To satiate any additional carb cravings you might still have, the Fortune Duck Glutinous Rice is a wonderful flavour bomb that is well worth a second helping. Featuring traditional aromatic ingredients such smoked duck, waxed meat, mushroom, dried shrimps and taro, you can practically taste the labour of love that goes into it with every bite.
Of course, no Chinese New Year feast could possibly be complete without munching on the addictive treat known as nian gao. To keep things interesting, Chef Ho’s modern variation of the traditional sticky rice cake includes the Koi Fish Nian Gao (MYR68), a sculpted variation filled with creamy red bean which makes for a mind-bending koi trompe l’oeil.
