Black Truffle Prawn Dumpling

We love truffle. So after spying this on the description card for the dim sum basket, we set ourselves the mission of identifying and trying it. As the truffle wasn’t overwhelming, we could taste how fresh the prawns were. As for the dumpling skin, it was just the right consistency.

Flamed Cod Fish

This dish consists of fresh cod fish tossed with some garlic, red chillies, ginger, shallots, and green onions. Soya sauce, oyster sauce and water is then added.

It’s a light and delicate dish, but far from bland. The cod was cooked to tender perfection, and the flavours well-balanced.

Black Pepper Angus Beef Cubes

Every bite of the tender meat was a treat. And this was despite us feeling stuffed (hello, food comma)! Each beef cube was evenly coated with black pepper sauce. The fresh and juicy vegetables serve as a great palette cleanser.
