Among the new Chinese New Year set menu, we tried out the LONGEVITY menu, for 4 person. Each dish represent prosperity, longevity and happiness.
Starting off with Prosperity Salmon Yu Sheng. Chef decided to prepare all the ingredient in the kitchen instead of buying in bulk from supplier, this is to ensure it is freshly made everyday and the texture is fine, and not too thick. The sauce is specially made too with a bit of Yuzu vinegar added instead of too much sweet sauce usually found in most Yu Sheng.
Double-Boiled Shark’s Cartilage Soup with Fish Maw, Conpoy and Mushroom
The double-boiled shark’s cartilage soup is one of Taste Paradise famous signature dish. The soup is thick and full of flavor with chunky fish maw, conpoy and mushroom. Absolutely delicious and highly recommended.
Stir-fried Prawn in Cream Milk
While stir-fried prawn is a common dish but in Cantonese Prawn means Laugh and having this dish during the Chinese New Year means you will laugh all the way in the new year.
Braised Dried Oyster with Deer Tendons, Sea Cucumber and Black Moss
This is another signature Cantonese dish, very traditional way of cooking. Not easy to cook it just right and so tender. Highly recommended dish here.
Poached Chicken with Special Ginger Sauce
The secret to this tasty dish is the special ginger sauce. The sauce compliment the soft tender chicken, recommend to go with a bowl of rice.
Wok-fried Glutinous rice with Assorted Chinese Sausages
Represent good harvest in the new year.
Steam Nian Gao with Coconut crumbs
Nian gao, sometimes translated as Chinese New Year’s cake, is a food prepared from glutinous rice and consumed in Chinese cuisine. While it can be eaten all year round, traditionally it is most popular during Chinese New Year. It is considered good luck to eat nian gao during this time, because nian gao is a homonym for “higher year.” The Chinese word 粘 (nián), meaning “sticky”, is identical in sound to 年, meaning “year”, and the word 糕 (gāo), meaning “cake” is identical in sound to 高, meaning “high or tall”. As such, eating nian gao has the symbolism of raising oneself taller in each coming year (年年高升 niánnián gāoshēng).
Chilled Almond Beancurd with Longan
The sweet and chilled almond beancurd with longan helps complete the meal. A perfect end to the delicious new year menu for 4 person.
