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.

Chinese New Year 2018 – Swissotel Merchant Court Ellenborough Market Cafe

The Chinese New Year 2018 media tastings are coming in fast and furious, and it’s not a minute too early because have you heard, some popular restaurants are already fully booked or close to being fully booked. Some hotels have even resorted to opening up their ballrooms to cater for more reunion dinner tables, although those are likely to be buffet style because getting manpower on Chinese New Year Eve is going to be craaaazy!

Chinese New Year 2018– Pan Pacific Hai Tien Lo

[CNY Media Invite]

And just like that, we’ve moved into 2018 and it’s now time to talk about Chinese New Year 2018 instead of Christmas 2017. A couple of weeks back, I had the privilege of having a sneak peak at what Hai Tien Lo Restaurant at Pan Pacific Singapore has in store for family reunions, CNY gatherings and Lo Hei luncheons. Hey come to think of it, I celebrated Christmas with a Champagne Brunch at Pan Pac, and I got to celebrate CNY early at Hai Tien Lo. Good times Smile

Available from 22 January to 2 March 2018, Hai Tien Lo will be offering a grand total of eight reunion set menus featuring everyone’s favourite CNY delicacies. There will also be one nutritious vegetarian set menu. Scroll down to see pictures of a selection of dishes from the set menus.

[CNY 2017] Lo hei with gold flakes at Yàn 宴 to give yourself a prosperous start to 2017!

Yan Cantonese Cuisine - Yellowtail Fish & Crispy Lobster Fillet Yu Sheng with Golden Flake in Shun De Style (3)

Yes, you heard me right. A yu sheng so decadent it boasts gold flakes in it! Dine at Yan Cantonese Cuisine at the National Gallery and you’ll be able to toss to a year of abundance with the signature Yellowtail Fish Yu Sheng with Golden Flake in Shun De Style. The gold flakes aren’t the only special thing about this yu sheng. Because crispy fried vermicelli is used as a base instead of the usual vegetable strips, the yu sheng tastes savoury rather than cloyingly sweet. Coupled with cubes of crispy lobster fillet, it’s no wonder I completely cleaned my plate when I tried this decadent yu sheng last week. Scroll to the end for more pictures of the Yu Sheng.

[CNY 2014] Crystal Jade Golden Palace

*Media Invite*

I guess with the posting of this post, Christmas 2013 is well and truly over. I always have a bit of a problem “letting go” of Christmas. December is such a time of merriment and holiday feel, and the adrenelin rush of making sure all the presents are bought and Christmas plans made. And it all just seems to literally pop and disappear come December 26, but nothing spells end of Christmas as starkly as seeing all the Chinese New Year decorations come up in full force overnight. I think I would very much prefer Chinese New Year to be in February, thank you very much. But that’s not to say that I loath Chinese New Year. I love it in fact! You’ll probably find me writing a similar post about Chinese New Year come February this year!

I had an early taste of Chinese New Year via the media tasting held at Crystal Jade Golden Palace at Paragon Orchard Road, last month in fact. Even though I was in a Christmassy mood then, I must admit that the food that was served was so delicious, I almost contemplated having a Chinese meal for Christmas instead! (In the end I went for Regent Hotel’s Christmas Afternoon tea, one of the best places for afternoon tea in general)

Crystal Jade Golden Palace - (1)

Most people are familiar with Crystal Jade Kitchen, which is the more casual restaurant serving affordable Chinese dishes. But did you know that Crystal Jade also boasts a line of more fine-dining/premium restaurant such as the Crystal Jade Palace Restaurant at Takashimaya, Crystal Jade Premiu at One degree 15 Marina Club Sentosa Cove and Crystal Jade Dining IN at Vivocity. We had our reunion dinner sampling at the Crystal Jade Golden Palace. The restaurant looked really posh, even more so than the Vivocity and Takashimaya one I feel. If you’re looking for a fine-dining Chinese restaurant, you gotta check out Crystal Jade Golden Palace!
