Must-try new dishes in spring
Chef Zhang Guobang, who has more than 25 years of rich cooking experience, follows the essence of Cantonese cuisine’s “clear but not light, thick but not greasy” flavour characteristics, and continues to introduce new ones in line with seasonal changes, cleverly using spring bamboo shoots, asparagus and perilla leaves. The ingredients, with just the right heat and seasoning, perfectly interpret the original flavour of the ingredients. The restaurant has carefully created a number of refreshing and stomach-warming private dishes, allowing guests to enjoy the delicious taste of Cantonese cuisine.
Stir-fried geoduck with bamboo shoots in X.O. sauce (1,680 NT$)
The chef specially selects fresh geoduck directly from Canada, paired with spring bamboo shoots, asparagus and sweet peppers with rich water content and fresh taste, and adds special X.O sauce. The springy texture of geoduck and the crispness and sweetness of double bamboo shoots are a match in heaven.
Mapo Lobster Chiba Tofu (1,080 NT$)
Inspired by the classic mapo tofu dish, Chef Zhang slices the tofu into 60 thin slices with exquisite knife skills. He chooses fresh lobster and cuts it into small pieces. He adds shiitake mushrooms and spices and sauté the shrimp head oil to make the sauce base. The elegant and delicate flavour is the signature of this dish.
Gulu Liusha Huaishan Ball (580 NT$)
The local yam is steamed into a ball, wrapped with coconut milk filling, and sprinkled with homemade dried pineapple crisps boiled in sugar water and air-dried, and the delicate sweet and sour taste with fresh strawberries is unforgettable.
