Poached Golden Seafood Broth with Wild River Prawn, Alaska Scallop and Crabmeat
The flavourful broth was rich and packed with fresh and succulent seafood goodness.

Two Varieties Chicken
The sweet and sour chicken was really delicious, crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside while the juicy and tender roasted chicken marinated with black garlic has a whole new depth of flavour.

Steamed Pearl Loong Fu Pan Fish with Minced Garlic Chili Sauce
Superb fresh, the fish was firm in texture and heavily laden with the slightly pungent garlic chili sauce.

Braised 10 Head Abalone with Sha Jing in Cucumber Ring

Braised to perfection, the abalone was flavourful and tender, but I am especially enjoying the broccoli, soft yet firm enough to bite.

Steamed Waxed Duck Meat Glutinous Rice
The rice was good and aromatic, generously laden with an abundant of waxed duck meat and BBQ dried chicken.

Dessert was the classic Sweetened 'Tang Yuen' with Ginger Infused Syrup
