Double Boiled Black Garlic And Sea Treasures Soup 黑蒜海宝炖汤
After the “lou hei” session, we were served with a bowl of Doubled Boiled Black Garlic & Sea Treasures Soup. Very comforting soup, as it warmed up our whole body after finishing everything. It is peppery, a bit similar to Singapore style bak kut teh but with mellow flavours from black garlic.
Deep Fried Stuffed Chicken Skin with Mango Mayonaise 香芒奶滋百花金龙鸡
Serving whole chicken on the table is way too main stream for this year of Rooster so Chef Wong put in extra effort in “transforming” the chicken dish into something more interesting – Deep Fried Stuffed Chicken Skin with Mango Mayonaise. Very crispy at the top layer, followed by “fish paste” texture meat below, drizzled with fruity dressing on top. Like dim sum!

Stewed Abalone with Sea Cucumbers and Duo-Coloured Dumplings 鲍鱼海参拌双色饺
Stewed abalone, sea cucumber and dumplings in finer way – we love all so don’t ask which is better. hahaha. Gravy that dressed over these premium ingredients is especially great, not too salty but packed with seafood sweetness. A bowl of white rice with the sauce fits in right perhaps.
