Helmed by Chef James Wong, a veteran chef of 40 years experience in the Oriental and Cantonese cuisine, and his team, Park Hotel Clarke Quay is back to impress with their magnificent Ultimate Success Premium Abalone Yu Sheng.
Be prepared to have your guests captivated with the allures of colours and flavours of the ingredients meticulously layered into a pyramid. It is akin a rainbow with the purple cabbage, radish, fried shimeji and enoki mushrooms, lycium leaves, yellow chives and carrots piled high to symbolise prosperity, luck and happiness.
At an additional $38 nett, upgrade from Tuna Yu Sheng to premium Abalone Yu Sheng with gold foils.
Savour traditional staples such as the Superior Braised Shark’s Fin Soup with Crab Meat and Homemade Stuffed Crab Claw and Steamed Whole Red Garoupa in Superior Light Soy Sauce.
The Shark’s Fin Soup comes with really chunky yet tender stuffed crab claws. Other soup option is available for replacement as well.
With bones carefully extracted from the Red Garoupa, this fish can be best enjoyed amongst kids and elderly. Each fish slice is then wrapped around asparagus in a modernised and convenient manner of eating.
Kudos to the chef for whipping up a delicious nest of Stir-fried King Topshell with Chinese Greens. They are truly tender with a bouncy texture. Stir-fried in abalone sauce, the flavours are rich and luxurious on the tongue.
Some unique creations to look forward to include the Golden Crispy Chicken with Fresh Button Mushroom in Cream Sauce and Tiger Prawn Toast with Tomato Salsa.
Imagine crispy toast topped with tangy diced tomato, perched on large grilled prawns. Presentation-wise, this dish scores well while the taste doesn’t disappoint either.
The Fragrant Fried Rice with Crabmeat, Egg White and Crunchy Root Vegetables in Vermicelli Basket would ensure your tummies are full and satisfied before moving on to the desserts. As for the fried rice, the overall taste is mild but the ingredients within are abundant.
Dessert is the Mango Peach Jelly, a harmony of sweet and sourness.
