Salmon and fresh scallop yee sang with chef Wong Wing Yeuk’s special Chinese mustard sauce



Double boiled soup with wantan dumplings, bamboo pith and dried scallops. Lovely change from the usual sharks fin soup

Braised Shanghainese pork with bamboo shoots and broccoli beautifully presented like the¬†Forbidden City. So yummy and tasty. The meat is braised for hours. Wong says the key to this dish¬†in using a super sharp knife to cut the meat and bamboo shoots into thin sliver.¬†Yet, amazingly, he manages to keep the structure of the “palace” standing


Imperial fried rice with prawns, crabmeat and egg


Shanghai’s signature Xiao loong bao with pastry skin that’s really thin and translucent
