Prosperity Yu Sheng with condiments – Get the moods lifted instantly with some lou-hei to usher in more huat, luck and good health for year 2023. The Yu Sheng platter is served in a floral octagon coin like tray that shouts bountiful blossom of happiness with a carrier handle on the cover
It comes with all the condiments to make a tasty yusheng with an iced vacuumed smoked salmon sashimi to top the Yu Sheng. Add a splash of lime to the salmon for more zesty kick that bring out the sweetness of the smoked salmon.
By the time you are done with your lou-hei, the IHEAT Fortune Mini Buffet is now hot and piping. Remove the covers from the food containers and enjoy the hot food. Steamed herbal chicken is one of my favourite dish, so I will dive right into this first. This dish is well flavoured with premium ingredients such as ginseng, danggui, goji, red dates and more herbs. The soup is rich with the clean flavours and feels very nourishing with each sip. Chicken is stuffed with the herbs so that the meat becomes infused with aroma as well. Fork tender with springy texture that can be enjoyed easily with the cutlery.
Lotus leaf rice with diced chicken and Chinese chicken sausage – I love the way How’s Catering has kept the traditional must have food during Chinese New Year intact. To retain this traditional dish, Chinese chicken sausage and real lotus leafs are used to wrap and steam the rice. Those who made this dish for CNY will know how laborious it is to create this. The lotus leaf is not easily available, you need to buy and prepare all the ingredients in advance. The soaking, frying of the ingredients, preparing of lotus leaves, assembling and wrapping is no easy feat. The result is aromatic lovely lotus leave scented rice with intense flavours from the cured meats, shiitake mushroom, braised chicken and more.
Jin Ling salt brine duck – the looks are deceiving with a natural hue of cooked duck. This duck has an addictive briny flavours that is infused into the meat. The lean meats are really tender with a melt in the mouth type of fatty skin with mild springy texture. This is a dish that really surprises my taste buds with the tender texture and strong flavours.
Sweet and sour dried fried prawn – This dish is also affectionately known as Har lok by the Cantonese. These are deep fried fresh prawns in a very appetising sauce like those in sweet and sour chicken cutlet. This used to be a popular dish in the older days which is served only at Chinese weddings and birthdays in a Chinese cuisine restaurant. The frying of the prawns intensifies the sweet aroma of the seafood flavours. The prawns are crunchy and firm with a tangy sauce.
Yam pudding with golden pumpkin – Served in dainty shot glass style with a thick rich base of yam paste, sweet golden pumpkin puree topped with golden rice pops and a gingko nut. Even my grandma approves this dessert and took a second serving. It is that good!
