Fullerton CNY 2020 – A Bountiful Feast at Jade Restaurant

Executive Chef of Jade Restaurant Leong Chee Yeng says, “A symbol of strength and dedication, the mighty yet humble ox traditionally plays an essential role in reaping a bountiful harvest. This motif reveals itself in this year’s specialties, alongside other inspired creations imbued with well-wishes for bliss, prosperity and togetherness. Designed to serve smaller groups, the newly created dishes are ideal for sharing meaningful moments of warmth with one’s closest kin.”

The quintessential starter for auspicious feasting is the spectacular Premium Gold Rush Salmon Yu Sheng, meticulously arranged into an image of the spirited bull, while families with younger children will delight in the special children’s version, arranged into an endearing representation of a playful calf. Fresh ingredients are elevated by champagne jelly, shallot oil and kumquat dressing, striking a captivating balance of rich and refreshing flavours.
