The baby pomfret is carefully selected, seasoned and deep fried till crispiness. Drizzled with the cili padi and also the crispy minced garlic on top. It brings you the aromatic flavours with the crispy addictive bites with it. Don’t waste any parts of the fish where you can enjoy everything inclusive the bones. That’s perfectly a good appetiser to start off.
The lovely done clam roll which is different from many places we had. The clam roll is deliciously done with the juicy bites in it where the meat is carefully minced together with carrot and clams in it. And it is them marinated with the five spices powder and deep fried till golden brown. Awesomely delicious whee I love the aromatic taste of the crispy clam roll and it is well compliments with the chilly sauce with it.
The deliciously done Black Squid Ink Balls is indeed bouncy and savoury. Covered with the sesame seed . Indeed enjoyable munch with the bouncy texture and light crisp in it. Paired together with the cherry tomato and cucumber.
Using the premium ingredients , the bowl of hot soup is completed with the 4-head Abalone, Superior Shark’s Fin, Fresh Fish Maw, Sea Cucumber, Japanese Dried Scallop, Conch, Yunnan Ham, Japanese Mushroom, Pork Tendon, Chicken, Ginseng, Superior Tong Sum, Huai San and Wolfberries. The hearty bowl of soup is being double boiled for 6 hours in the special bone china bowls which is made in Chiu Chow. It is perfectly made just for this occasion. And what’s more interesting is the recipe that was taught to Chef Justin by his master, retired Chef Fok You Wing from Hong Kong, whom he worked for as apprentice in Singapore and Malaysian for around 6 years.
The bowl of soup is just gorgeous with the packed flavourful taste in it. Love how this is done, especially the tender abalone, as well as the deliciously fresh fish maw. Love how everything in it and we are indeed filled up with the soup alone.
Another highlights is of course the Roasted Baby Hong Kong Pigeon. Sourced all the way from Chong San with the perfect size of 250gm each, the baby pigeon is being cooked to the tender perfection allowing its succulent fragrant meat to be enjoyed with its soft bones. We are all truly indulged with it even we are quite full at the time, but when it served the aromatic smell of its makes our tummy drolls again. Crispy skin, juicy meat something must order when you are there.
Being one of the famous dishes during the 60s, it is said that this dish is simply tedious to prepare and requires great skill to produce. The selection of the fresh ingredient itself is important as the Chinese cabbage must not be too tight so that he heart of the cabbage can be easily removed. Once the ingredients are stuffed into the cabbage, it has to be tied with a delicate water reed, not to tightly or too loosely, to prevent the stuffed ingredient from overflowing. The whole stuffed cabbage is braised for three hours before serving and this deceptively simply dish comes with complex flavours fit for king. Love all the goodies inside the cabbage especially the fresh sweet crab meat , dried scallops and water chestnut. Not just that, the textures of the cabbage itself comes with the sweet vegetables tastes and it is also flavourful too.
This is awesomely delicious. I love the overpowering Bentong ginger taste as I am a big fans of ginger and love how it is done with the robust flavours in it Topped with the sweet prawns on top. It is perfectly a good match with the glutinous rice making it even more delicious with the luscious prawn roes.
No one will leave here with some desserts. Not just their mains are perfectly delicious, but their desserts is definitely melts you too. Using their 3 year old imported orange peel from China, it brings you with the aromatic notes with the right balanced of sweetness. Love how it is done, especially Chef Hor took extra efforts in soaking the red beans a day before and using the imported orange peel.
And of course, end your meals with the flaky white lotus paste as well as the chewy crystal pumpkin dumpling.
