Yàn CNY 2022 – Convivial feasts to toast to health and wealth
Celebrate the joyful spirit of the Lunar New Year with five set menus (from $138++ to $268++ per person) offering six to seven courses featuring premium meats and seafood, and an eight-course vegetarian set menu ($88++ per person).
Toss to prosperity with Yàn’s signature savoury Abalone & Salmon with Gold Foil Lo Hei in ‘Shun De’ Style (from $92++). Available for dine-in only, the yusheng features a mountain of crispy vermicelli crowned with shredded purple and yellow sweet potatoes, pickled ginger, and gold flakes. The stunning tower is decorated with a vibrant garland of vegetables and sesame seeds symbolising harmony, and fresh slices of salmon and braised abalone for a year of abundance.
Fish is a must-have for its symbolic significance of ample surplus. The nourishing Double-boiled Chicken Soup with Morel ‘Yang Du Jun’ and Fish Maw brims with deep flavours skilfully coaxed from every ingredient. Another customary dish is the Steamed Soon Hock with Preserved Lemon Peel Sauce. Savour succulent marble goby flesh along with the tangy house-made lemon peel sauce and crispy garlic.
Auspicious noodle dishes such as Wok-Fried Local Lobster Tail with Ee Fu Noodles and Wok-fried Scallops with XO Sauce and Mee Pok Noodles convey well-wishes for longevity. Lobster, considered to bring good luck with its bright red hues, is also offered in the Wok-fried Local Lobster Tail with Crab Meat & Crab Roe Superior Sauce. The luscious sauce combines the delicate sweetness of shredded crab meat and crab roe for an alluring pairing with the lobster tail.
A quintessential centrepiece for celebratory gatherings is the Yàn Harvest Pen Cai (from $325). The treasure trove features layers of 18 delicacies such as 6-head abalone, sea cucumber, prawns, whole conpoy, collagen-rich pork tendons, king grouper fillet, scallops, roast pork, soya chicken, and roast duck. Each ingredient is individually prepared, then combined in a claypot and simmered in a flavourful braised duck sauce.
Bearing well-wishes are desserts such as Chilled Pumpkin Cream with Aloe Vera and Deep-Fried Sesame Rice Ball filled with lotus paste. Golden pumpkin is well-loved during new year celebrations as a symbol of bountifulness and prosperity. Sesame balls not only represent luck with its round shape and caramel gold colour, but also growth in endeavours through its expansion from a small dough ball to a puffed parcel after it is deep-fried.
