The premium selection also includes a set of baby abalone in savoury abalone sauce per diner. This abalone is braised and is tender to the bite. The steamed broccoli brings out the natural briny flavour of the abalone with the silky texture of the dressing sauce.
Mock shark fin is also included and free flow too. The mock shark fin with rings of soft pillowy fish maw, shredded crab meat and silky ribbons of egg white in a thick gelatinous savoury chicken stock is best enjoyed over a hot bowl of steamed rice. Add some vinegar and white pepper for extra kick and a hint of tartness to the stew.
Marble goby also known as soon hock is a premium freshwater fish sought after by many in traditional Chinese 10 course dinner for its sweet and delicate meat that melts in the mouth. The marble goby is served deep fried atop a pool of fragrant gingery soy sauce oil.
Topped with crispy shredded ginger, the crispy crust is like a savoury piece of fish cracker. Under the crust holds some tender juicy meat and best enjoyed with a drizzle of savoury soy sauce oil. Each table is entitled to one marble goby.
This is steamed scallops with minced garlic and glass noodle to soak up the sweet seafood juices. Limited to one steamed scallop per diner as this is part of the premium menu. It has some chewy scallop fin with some contrast from the custardy roe.

The meat is savoury and tender with a caramelised skin that holds an interesting deep five spice flavour.
Another popular item on the buffet menu is the garlic herbs roasted chicken. The chicken is deep fried to create a paper thin glistering browned skin and some savoury meat.
Topped with some crispy garlic chips for extra umami flavour and a sweet garlic kick.
Those who love prawns, this is something you should order during the buffet. The cereal prawn is butter coated with savoury crisp baby oats with strong aroma from the curry leaves and a light hint of heat from the chill padi.

Gulp down unlimited cups of ice cold bubble tea that is extra light, airy and rich with some black chewy boba pearls. The bubble tea comes in classic, earl grey, roasted Oolong, matcha flavour and is part of the buffet.
This shaker is the magic behind the light and foamy bubble tea texture. The bubble tea gets shaken repeatedly by this shaker machine to induce air into the drink, just like teh tarik.
