Ginger – Prosperous Reunion and Gathering at Ginger [MEDIA INVITE]

Baby Lobster with Abalone Sauce

Usher in the Year of The Boar with the new creations by Executive Chef Vincent Aw at Ginger, all-day dining restaurant for PARKROYAL on Beach Road. The luxurious buffet line up for Chinese New Year (‘CNY’) is definitely something to look forward to.

Signature dishes for this Chinese New Year are:

Baby Lobster with Abalone Sauce. Baby Lobster is one of the signature ala minute stations at Ginger. For this CNY, it is cooked and served with Abalone Sauce. The baby lobster is fresh, juicy, succulent and springy, served with a clean and robust Abalone sauce. The combination of delicate broth and lobster is superb and definitely got my two thumbs up. I actually have to stop myself from ordering a few more as I want to try other dishes.

Baked Salmon with Fried Salmon Skin. I am not a big fan of baked salmon normally, however, it just irresistible at Ginger. The flesh of the salmon is pinkish, moist and flaky, basked with creamy seafood sauce. On top of the dish is a deep-fried crispy salmon skin, which I can’t resist.

DIY Ginger’s Prosperity Yu Sheng. This is the time to showcase your creativity in designing your own Yu Sheng. The ingredients are provided and it is up to you to add the rest. I suggest go beyond the Yu Sheng station and add the Crispy Salmon Skin from the Baked Salmon, the assortment of ‘Keropok’ and lots of salmon sushi into the mix. Huat Ah!!!

Braised Dried Oyster with Sea Moss and Abalone Fried Rice are available in the hot food isle. Black Sea Moss (a.k.a. Fatt Choy) represent one of the most auspicious ingredients during Chinese New Year, representing prosperity in the new year. I personally like the braised dried oyster, the solid gooey gravy with the crunchy broccoli. If I ‘struck it rich’ in the New Year due to this dish, it is definitely an added bonus.

Meanwhile, abalone is known to look like the traditional gold ingot. Therefore, it hopes to bring you more money in the coming year. Alas, I only managed to try the fried rice, while these mini abalones got whacked by others.

Grilled Half Shell Scallop and Satay at the Live Station. The juicy and springy scallops are baked just right, you can easily savour half a dozen at one go. The assorted satays have a slightly charred exterior, juicy and well-marinated flesh that can be consumed on its own or with the thick satay sauce. I personally recommend the pork satay.

Satay Pork Collar, combining the western style of cooking with local flavours. Tender, succulent, coated with satay flavour externally.

Soft Shell Crab. Perfectly fried, with crispy exterior and crab filled delicious interior. You won’t feel the oiliness in this dish, despite it is been deep fried. Surprisingly, it is better than those served in most of the Japanese restaurant in the market.

Abalone Salad and Bak Kwa with Pineapple Salad. A very good appetizer that uses the CNY ingredients. The abalone is crunchy and refreshing, while the pineapple with bak kwa, balance up the sweetness from the bak kwa seasoning.

For desserts, there will be Steamed Nian Gao, Pineapple Tarts and Chinese Eight Treasure Longan Soup with Glutinous Rice Ball. You will definitely have you filled with all these Chinese New Year treats.

During the Media Tasting session, Ginger served one of the most delicate Lemon Meringue Pie. It is light and refreshing, it makes me remember those solid Lemon Meringue Pies I had in Melbourne. Kudos to the culinary team at Ginger for making this awesome pie.
