Only for dine-in at Min Jiang, Kanpachi and Tuna ‘Yu Sheng’ (黄尾鱼金枪鱼捞生, $138) is a glorious platter of pristine goodness to mark the start of a happy occasion. Created by Master Chef Chan Hwan Kee (曾繁基) of Min Jiang, it features a lofty stack of mesclun greens, strips of radish, carrot, red ginger, jellyfish and fried silver cod fish, pine nuts, topped with sweet potato and yam crisps, and finished off with ground peanuts, sesame seeds as well as ‘pok choy’ (crispy golden ‘pillows’) tossed in a balanced plum-wasabi-lime juice sauce. The wasabi sauce provides a Japanese take to a Chinese yusheng. The ultra-fresh seafood stars of kanpachi and tuna complete this celebration must-have.
Joy of Abundance 好运鲤鱼过丰年 ($298 for 6 pax) is an impressive centrepiece for the table. This dish is adorned with two beautiful koi swimming in a sea of wealth that encases sumptuous sea treasures within. Break open the salt crust to ‘release’ the good fortune and feast on scrumptious eel maw stuffed with dace fish paste, Australian 10-head abalones, dried oysters, dried scallops, flower mushrooms and ‘fa cai’ (black moss). It is available for dine-in and takeaway at Min Jiang.
If you prefer something healthier, head to Min Jiang at One-North for Assorted Fruits and Vegetables ‘Lo Hei’ (鸿运水果蔬菜捞起 – $80 small / $130 large) by Master Chef Goh Chee Kong (吴志光). Artfully arranged delicate plum slices are topped with pomelo-mango bits, and enhanced with an assortment of dragon fruit, mango, rock melon and cucumber. Crushed peanuts, sesame seeds, toasted pine nuts as well as yam, sweet potato and seaweed crisps add fragrance and provide a crunchy textural contrast. A dressing made of mustard, sesame sauce and fruit juice provides an appetising finish.
Chef’s Braised Pork Belly in Tianjin Cabbage Roll with Sea Treasures (金鲍白菜卷海味锅, $248 for 6 pax) boasts melt-in-the-mouth pork belly which has been seasoned with garlic, ginger and spring onions, then tenderly slow-cooked for 5 hours. Sichuan pickled cabbage and fresh chillies are added to the dish, which is then further steamed for two hours to achieve a perfect blend of salty and tangy flavours. For the final flourish, the pork is snugly wrapped in Tianjin cabbage, steamed for ten minutes, then served with sea cucumber, Australian 10-head abalones, dried oysters, dried scallops, flower mushrooms and ‘fa cai’ (black moss) on a bed of Tianjin cabbage. It is available for dine-in and takeaway at Min Jiang at One-North.
Fans of the thorny fruit can rejoice with the hotel’s new creation of Durian ‘Nian Gao’ Roll (榴梿年糕卷 | $28/2 rolls for takeaway, $18/6 slices for dine-in).
