Jazz up your Yu Sheng or Pot Luck – Gourmet Salted Egg Yolk Fish Skin Crisps and Potato Crisps

The Golden Duck CNY Packaging

[Media Invite]

Have you ever been in a situation where you are invited to a pot-luck party and you have no idea what to bring? You may not know how to cook, or not want to go to the trouble of cooking, and yet those who can’t cook have already choped the desserts. What do you do then? How about bringing something to jazz up the food that people are going to bring?

Run to the rescue The Golden Duck Salted Egg Yolk Potato Crisps and Fish Skin Crisps. Toss these salty and crispy morsels onto just about any dish you can think off and voila, you’ve added in a bit of extra excitement. I mean admit it, there are precious few people around who DON’T like something crispy, so this is a potentially winning idea! Anyway, even if you don’t eventually use these crisps, they still make good gifts for the host so you don’t end up coming empty handed.

Check out the following dishes for ideas on how to utilise The Golden Duck’s Salted Egg Yolk Potato Crisps and Fish Skin Crisps. During this Chinese New Year period, you can also get limited edition packaging in an auspicious colour complete with a festive saying aka Auspicious Blessings printed on the packet, such as 步步高升 and 身体健康.

Chinese New Year 2018 – Tamarind Hill, literally a hidden gem in Labrador Nature Reserve

[Media Invite]

Situated atop the densely forested Labrador Nature Reserve, and yet only a 10 minute walk from Labrador MRT Station, the restaurant Tamarind Hill qualifies to be called a hidden gem. When you arrive at the restaurant, it’s hard not to be wowed by the charming colonial bungalow that has been decked out to exude a rustic-luxe Asian flair, amidst vast greenery. It really feels as if you are cocooned away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Singapore.

The bungalow may seem small from the outside, partly because it is obscured by all the plants. But once you open the main door, you will surely be wowed by this imposing and grand looking bar area. This is probably the most instagrammable spot in the entire restaurant!

The restaurant serves traditional and contemporary Siamese cuisine, and is led by Executive Chef Wanthana Nikonsaen who hails from a small village near Laos, North-East of Thailand. But I was there to try the Lunar New Year menu, so I was keen to see how this menu might be different from all the Chinese New Year menus I have tried in the past few weeks.

For $88/pax, Tamarind Hill will be offering a 4 course set menu comprising fixed dishes of appetisers, soup, mains and desserts. If you want to have Yu Sheng / Lohei, that’s an additional $38 (small for 3 – 4 pax) or $68 (large for 7 – 8 pax). Check out the photos of the food below. If you have the chance, sit outdoors in the al-fresco area because the greenery all around is just so pretty.

Chinese New Year 2018– Golden Duck with 22-carat French Gold Flakes from Kam’s Roast

[Media Invite]

Kam's Roast - Whole Roast Duck, Iberico Char Siu, Crispy Roast Pork

Prosperity Trio (Whole Roast Duck, Iberico Char Siu, Crispy Roast Pork) – $108 (Takeaway only)

How about living it up this Chinese New Year by getting Kam’s Roast Golden Duck flecked with 22-carat edible French Gold Flakes? Kam’s Roast usual Roast Duck costs $66, but if you want the Golden Duck, it costs $88. OK I guess most people would go for the original Roast Duck to save $22, but the Golden Duck might actually be a good gift for your business clients if you had to get a CNY gift for them!

Chinese New Year 2018– Delicious CNY dishes from neighbourhood restaurant Gao Peng Cuisine!

[Media Invite]

One restaurant I am happy to recommend is this neighbourhood restaurant called Gao Peng Cuisine located in White Sands Mall at Pasir Ris, which I have been frequenting for the past 1 year whenever I visit the Pasir Ris Library or take Baby Edward for enrichment classes. I love the dim sum here, especially this dough fritter wrapped in cheong fun dish, which is only available until 5pm.

Gao Peng Cuisine also has another outlet at Junction 9 in Yishun. In fact, Gao Peng is owned by Gao Ji Food, which also owns House of Roasted Duck in Bugis Village and Sultan Plaza. Apparently, Gao Ji Food was started all the way back in 1954 when founder Mr Chong Seng Tong plied the streets of Chinatown with his wife on foot selling Hakka Yong Tow Foo. You know the famous Koo Kee Yong Tow Foo, my favourite Yong Tow Foo, it’s started by Mr Chong!! You can read more about Gao Ji Food here.

Gao Peng CNY 2018 Menu

History aside, I was happy to find out that Gao Peng Cuisine will be offering a Chinese New Year menu, and I was privileged to be invited to sample the menu before hand. Scroll down for pictures of the dishes we tried. Oh if there’s one thing you must order, it’s the Pencai from House of Roasted Duck. Most Pencai feature seafood ingredients, but because this Pencai from House of Roasted Duck, there’s roasted duck and roast pork included, which makes a refreshing change to the usual hotel pencais you see around. The roast meats also add to the flavour of the broth.
