Christmas is just round the corner but the Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy has already put together an extensive selection of exquisite set menus, takeaways and delicious goodies for the upcoming Lunar New Year 2016 celebrations.
Integral to every Chinese New Year celebration is Yu Sheng (a festive salad for good luck and good fortune) and an over-indulging Pen Cai which consists of premium ingredients (e.g. abalone, scallops, prawns, oysters and mushrooms) which are cooked in a deliciously rich broth. Other signature dishes include the "Buddha Jump Over the Wall" and the Jia Wei Roasted Duck by Master Chef Victor Lee.
Another signature creation of Chef Victor at Jia Wei Chinese Restaurant (Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy) is the Baked Pig Trotter in Golden Ingot. This prized ingredient is cooked slowly and thoroughly with 8 Head Abalone alongside an assortment of seasonal vegetables in a signature sauce. To impress you further, Chef Victor places all these ingredients into a golden ingot-shaped salt case which is then broken open when served to the table.
Extend the festivities outside of the Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy by taking home some of the handmade creations by Head Chef Lester Wang:
- Pineapple tarts
- Kueh Bahulu
- Fragrance Honey Bee Hive
- Mocha cookies
- Blueberry cookies
The Sofitel Singapore City Centre officially opened just over two months ago and Racines has already established itself as a prominent restaurant in the central business district. I was completely won-over by Racines since my first visit and I have been back on multiple occasions for lunch and dinner (in fact, I even considered getting an Accor Plus membership at some point because I really enjoyed the food!). While the French kitchen in Racines (led by Chef Jean-Charles Dubois) has been objectified as one of the best places in the area for well-executed French cuisine, most diners have not tried many dishes from the Chinese menu. As such, the Sofitel Singapore City Centre wanted to make up of the upcoming Lunar New Year (2018) to showcase some of the culinary highlights from the Chinese kitchen and from what I have seen so far, it is looking pretty good!
Not many people know this (myself included) but Amara Singapore Hotel is home to pretty impressive Chinese restaurant - Silk Road.
