Chef double-boiled this clear chicken broth in long hours with abalone, dried scallops, bamboo pith and vegetables, love the light flavor with natural taste from the ingredients.
One of the must-order Chinese New Year dishes, chef braised the Japanese sun-dried Shiitake mushrooms together with dried oysters and fatt choy. I love the presentation as well as nice flavors with different textures.
If you find waxed-meat glutinous rice is too boring, why not try something different, like this golden fried rice with luxurious diced lobster, tobiko and fragrant bonito flakes. Full of ‘wok-hei’, the fried rice was cooked till perfect in texture, and I love how the tobiko gave the dish a hint of saltiness that I enjoyed so much.
Served with crunchy asparagus and fried onion rings at side, these salmon fillets were nicely baked with chef’s own-mixed honey sauce, highly recommended for those who prefer a twist of Western flavor in their ordinary traditional Chinese New Year dishes.
The meal closed with the perfect ending, crispy deep fried golden sesame balls with creamy salted egg yolk custard and refreshing durian mochi with real durian pulp filling. Both also my top favorites, really awesome!
From 26 January to 5 March 2015, we invite all our guests at The Reunion Dinners at Tai Zi Heen to add more colour and happiness to the event by taking ‘wefie’ to capture the togetherness and happiness of the moment with their beloved families.
