Celebrate CNY 2017 with The Square @ Furama RiverFront [MEDIA INVITE]

CNY 2017 - The Square @ Furama

The Square @ Furama RiverFront will be celebrating Chinese New Year 2017 with its own signature buffet line up. The festive delights will be curated by award-winning Executive Chef William Lum and his team.

The highlights of the buffet that will be served during the Chinese New Year period will include dishes like:

Prosperity Salmon Yu Sheng

Prosperity Salmon Yu Sheng (富贵发财鱼生). The combination of vegetables and preserved fruits are well balanced. The sweet sauce is concocted well enough to wet your appetite without feeling overwhelming. Of course, not forgetting this dish also come with abundance auspicious meanings. Huat Ah!!

The Aftermath Version 

Double boiled Sakura Chicken with Winter Melon, Dried Scallop & Honshimeji Mushroom (干贝冬瓜鸡汤). Sakura chicken, known for its free of growth hormone provide a nice base to the soup. The winter melon, dried scallops and mushroom added to different layer of flavours and also nutrients in the soup. As it is double boiled, the soup base remain clear, light and good to warm up your stomach.

Wok Fried Coffee Pork topped with Almond Flakes (杏仁片咖啡排骨). Wow, it has been a while since I had a serving Coffee Pork Ribs, kind of missing this dish after all the hype on the salted eggs dishes. When this dish was served, the fragrant coffee aroma really fills the room. The ribs are tender and succulent, while the caramelisation of the coffee that coated the ribs does not affect the crispiness texture. Yum Yum.

Braised Sea Cucumber with Sea Moss and Flower Mushroom (包罗万有). The sea cucumber and flower mushroom absorbs the braising sauce nicely. The sea cucumber has a nice tenderness bite to it and the mushroom has a solid juicy flavour when you bite into it. I just wish my portion was bigger.

Steamed Sea Garoupa in Home-Town Style (家乡蒸海石斑). During the tasting, fish was steamed just right. Smooth, silky flesh of the fish simply tells you the freshness of the fish. The Home-Town Style of sauce which was cooked with mushroom and black bean provide a good companion to the fish without overpowering the subtle flavour of the fish. Yum Yum.

Rice Cracker in Superior Golden Broth with Seafood and Coriander Stem (金汤海鲜窝粑). My type of comfort food. The sweet and robust broth is filled with the seafood flavour from the scallops, prawns and crabs. The crispy rice is light and crispy making this staple dish taste lighter than usual.

Dessert was Chilled Refreshing Lemon Grass Jelly Delight (经典香茅冻). The touch of chilled lemon grass jelly provided a sweet and refreshing ending the meal. The berries inside provided a sharper, contrasting acidic touch to the dessert. While the sesame crackers is simply aromatic and crispy.
