Shanghainese Steamed Meat with Black Truffle Dumplings
 Firstly, start off with a mouth-watering meat filling and piping hot soup of Shanghainese Steamed Meat Dumplings or Xiao Long Bao. Compared to the conventional Xiao Long Bao usually ordered here, this luscious 18 fold plaited dumplings have been added with black truffles to enhance its flavour that permeates through the inner dumpling's soup. As I have mentioned before in previous posts before, do not throw away the soup that is inside the dumpling as that is what makes this dumplings complete. Enjoy this dish with their vinegared sliced ginger sauce while it is still hot.

Double-boiled Chicken with Fish Maw and Superior Shark's Fin Soup
 Next, slurp down a bowl of a rich double boiled chicken soup (6 hours). As the strong chicken essence soup makes it nutritional for the elderly, the addition of sliced fish maw and superior shark fin brings a luxurious element to the strong flavourful broth that is attributed to its generous portion of ingredients used.

Braised Shanghainese Pork Belly with Sea Cucumber (10 pax)
Braised Shanghainese Pork Belly with Sea Cucumber

Enjoy some pork goodness with their modified version of their "Chef Recommended" Braised Shanghainese Pork Belly. This delicious pork belly was braised for about 2 hours that makes every bite juicy with it sauce. Take a slice of pork belly and put in a piece of steamed bread and munch down all the meaty goodness! In addition, the sea cucumber served was cooked just perfectly chewy with a serving of broccoli, and mushrooms .

Sauteed Hong Kong Seasonal Vegetables with Dried Scallop
Remember how our mothers always ask us to finish our vegetables? Savour down this sauteed Hong Kong Bak Choy that tasted just nice and drenched with a rich flavourful dried scallop sauce. The vegetable tasted nice with a rich scallop essence to it.

Yong Chow Fried Rice
Finally, for your staple dish, you can choose either a Yong Chow Fried Rice OR Fried La Mian with Diced Chicken in Black Pepper Sauce. Looking up above  this Yong Chow Fried Rice was fried Chinese wok style with a mixture of eggs, peas, scallions, diced meat, and mushrooms.

Other Dishes (Not included in Promotion Menu)
These dishes below are not included in the promotion menu, however if you would like to top up your meals with other choices, feel free to browse below.

Crispy Caramelized Eel
The crispiness of this fried eel coated with sesame seeds and caramel sauce was crunchy and addictive to continuously keep on munching. A recommended appetizer to start off your meals!

Chlled Drunken Chicken with "Hua Diao" Rice Wine
 A low heat cooked farm chicken infused with chinese wine base & condiments. Every bite of the sliced drunken chicken was a rich herbal incorporated juicy meat that to open up your taste buds.

Japanese Cucumber with Minced Garlic
 A refreshing dish of sliced japanese cucumbers served above a pool of garlic sauce.

Dragonfruit Juice
 A rich and flavourful dragon fruit juice to quench your thirst..

Corn Juice
 I was surprised at the first sight of this drink. Although, I was skeptical at first, this corn juice was simply divine with its rich corn taste that reflects a "sweet corn ice cream potong flavour" with less sweetness and stronger flavouring.

Mango & Pomelo Sago Cream
 Their signature Mango & Pomelo Sago Cream was great! A rich blend of crushed ice and cream, with sliced mangoes & pomelo that ended our meal satisfaction.
