Chinese New Year is nearing and I can’t wait to don new clothes, collect ‘ang paos’, catch up with families and friends, and stuff myself silly with grandma’s treasure duck, homemade pineapple tarts and other goodies. Speaking of glorious food, we sussed out some of the latest creations crafted by our Resort’s chefs for Chinese New Year.
1. Feng Shui Inn
What is it: A medley of refreshing flavours and colours combined with thinly sliced flamed salmon infused with Chinese wine.
What to expect: Sweet and tangy, the texture is enhanced with crispy fish skin made from top grade Catfish from Hong Kong. According to Feng Shui Inn’s Chef Li, a layer of Chinese wine is brushed on the fresh salmon which, when flamed exudes a sweet and fruity flavour. To mix things up, strawberry jam is used instead of the usual plum sauce. Expect to find ‘bak kwa’ (beef jerky) in this indulgent toss-up too, for that extra smoky, meaty kick.
Price: $88+ for 3-6 pax, $128+ for 7-10 pax (10% service charges apply for dine-in)
What is it: A unique vegetarian creation filled with healthy greens and fresh fruits such as dragon fruit, kiwis and strawberries.
What to expect: Great if you want something lighter before the start of a heavy reunion dinner. It’s sweet and juicy and the tiny, crispy crackers give each mouthful an extra bite. The peanut shavings furnishes it with an earthy, nutty undertone that lingers. It will be a hit with the kids.
Price: $48+ for 3-6 pax, $68+ for 7-10 pax (10% service charges apply for dine-in)
What is it: Well-braised selection of luxurious seafood ensconced within a buttery crust and baked till golden-brown.
What to expect: A sight to behold: shiny glossy crust with a hint of buttery fragrance. When opened, the smell of exquisite ingredients including fish maw, sea cucumber, abalone, black moss, and dried scallops waft up tantalizingly. This lush creation comes with a small ‘hammer’ so you can crack open the ingot, which symbolizes good fortune.
Price: $688+ per ingot, meant for 8-10 pax (10% service charges apply for dine-in)
What else: 8-course set dinners start from $1388++ to $3288++ for 10 pax

2. Forest 森
What is it: A soupy bird’s nest dish with crab meat and roe
What to expect: There’s something about sipping on a decadent dish of nutritious bird’s nest and warm, hearty soup topped with tender crab meat and roe. Sharing it with family completes the experience. It’s good for your skin too, so all the more reason to dig in.
Set dinner: $198++ per person for a 6-course meal
Perks: RWS Invites members enjoy complimentary Yu Sheng with a minimum spending of $400.
For reservations, please call 6577 7788.
3. Hollywood China Bistro, Universal Studios Singapore
What is it: Prosperity Treasure Bowl, or Pen Cai
What to expect: Generously filled with 11 exquisite ingredients. Tuck into well-braised and chewy abalone, dried moss, savoury duck, sea cucumber and more. We love how the accompanying gravy is rich yet not too thick nor salty.
Price: $188+ (Small), $288+ (Large) (10% service charges apply for dine-in)
What else: Prosperity set menus start from $68++ for 2 to $338++ for 10 persons
Perks: With a minimum spending of $50 nett from 1- 24 Feb, RWS Invites members will receive a Prosperity Yu Sheng worth $38++.
