A symbolic of good luck, prosperity, health and all things auspicious, the tossing of Yee Sang is simple a must at this festive meal. Five Sen5es’s Taiwanese Top Shell Abalone & Norwegian Salmon Yee Sang is set with plenty of ingredients that is sure to bring the abundance of everything good to diners.
Savor thick luscious slices of Salmon and premium Top Shell Abalone slices with the fruity and tangy sweetness of the yee sang salad after the obligatory Lou Hei!
Warm the tummy and heart with Double Boiled Chicken Consommé with Sliced Fish Maw, Trumpet Shell & Ginseng. Slow double boiled for hours, the consommé is full of glorious chicken and dried seafood essence enhanced with nutritious ginseng. Every spoonful was a soothing note of satisfaction. There were premium ingredients of gelatinous fish maw, tender trumpet shell, chicken and red dates.
Making a comeback was a favorite of mine from last year menu. Crispy Roasted Chicken with Spicy Garlic Sauce had crispy skin roasted chicken smothered in piquant garlic loaded sauce concocted from black vinegar, chili, peanuts, garlic and sesame seeds. The chook is beautifully tender and moist. Coupled with the moreish sauce, the dish is just as how it was last year.
The fish course was a classic Steamed Pomfret with Bean Curd Skin & Mandarin Skin. The large highly-prized pomfret was cooked to perfection. Superior soy sauce enhanced with a citrusy aroma of dried mandarin skin paired so well with the fish. The fresh bean curd skin had also soaked up the delicious flavours of the sauce well.
The clean and natural sweetness flavours of Stir Fried Fresh Scallop with Two Kinds of Fungus was a favorite on the table. Plump large scallops are gorgeous and paired with crunchy asparagus, sweet peppers, crunchy black fungus and brown fungus. The brown fungus is unusual and has a tender and tasty woody flavour with a subtle sweetness.
To rejoice the festive with plenty of Har Har Siu, the next course of Deep Fried Prawn with Avocado Salsa is Chef Tan’s latest creation in using nutritious avocado. The crispy battered prawns are nicely cooked with a subtle sweetness. These goes so well with the creamy velvety avocado sauce, cubes of avocado and the pebbles of tangy sweet pomegranate seeds.
The next course was also a new take of a classic dish. Inspired by Hong Kong style dish, Chef Tan whipped up Braised Dice Chicken & Abalone Rice. Aromatic egg fried rice is paired with a braised brown chicken and baby abalone gravy. The delicate flavours of the rice and sauce exuded comfort and soothing warmness. Its practically home cooked comfort flavours if you don’t take in the baby abalones. Tiny tobiko eggs and lots of spring onions completed the dish.
Desserts take form in Chinese New Year Nian Gao and Sweetened Chilled Coconut Sago with Rock Melon & Jack Fruit. The Nian Gao is a delight to eat. Thin nian gao shaped like tortellini envelopes a filling of sweet potato. The fresh grated coconut offset the sweetness of the nian gao and gave it a creamy note. The chilled sweet coconut sago had a lovely deep caramelized sweetness from brown sugar and had fruity bits of rock melon, jack fruit and sago for textures.
