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
Sweet and sour fish fillet with pine nuts. The fish meat is cut in such a way that, when deepfried, it bursts into a flower!
Deepfried golden tofu stuffed with foie gras and prawn paste
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
Panfried nian gao coated with nutty, aromatic sesame seeds
Glutinous rice cakes in sweetened broth with red dates and dried longan
