Famous Treasure – Ushering In The Year of The Rat [MEDIA INVITE]

Prosperity Shun De Yu Sheng @ Famous Treasure

Usher in the year for the Golden Rat with Authentic Nanyang cuisine at Famous Treasure. The year of the Rat symbolises wealth and surplus and bountiful opportunities. The culinary team at Famous Treasure has crafted celebratory set menus showcasing nostalgic dishes of Teochew, Hokkien, Cantonese and Hainanese with influences from Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia.

This Chinese New Year, Famous Treasure brings back the traditional flavour of Yu Sheng with “Prosperity Shun De Yu Sheng (顺德鱼生 - Available for à la carte and takeaway order during CNY period and normal days, 3 days advance notice is required. ($118++ for Small, 6 diners & $180++ for Large, 10 diners)). Ingredients for this Yu Sheng are Hamachi, ginger, garlic, shallots, spring onion, fried yam, roasted sesame, soy sauce, sea salt, lemongrass and chilli.

Prosperity Shun De Yu Sheng 

We have gotten used to tossing the Yu Sheng together at the centre of the table. The
Prosperity Shun De Yu Sheng is treated differently. Diners will build your own Yu Sheng base on the ingredients of your liking. I did two versions, the first one I added soy sauce to taste. It has a taste profile of Cantonese steam fish and the oil and soy sauce bind fish, ginger and spring onion together.

The second version I use salt instead of soy sauce, while the rest of the ingredients remain the same. It tasted fresh and clean, like the fresh taste of the ocean. This brought back memories of the extinct Yu Sheng flavour that you previously get with you order your porridge in Maxwell market.

Roasted Silver Hill Irish Duck (爱尔兰烧鸭 - $58 for half and $138 for whole for CNY à la carte Menu. Also available in CNY set menu Success, Happiness, & Fortune).  The Roasted Silver Hill Irish Duck at Famous Treasure is one of the best in the market and it is a signature dish here as well. It is roasted to perfection, resulting in crispy skin, followed with juicy succulent meat as the rendered fats melt into it. Although it is served with plum sauce on the side, I normally eat it without the sauce as the taste its awesome on its own.

Chicken Soup with Morel Mushroom and Peach Gum (羊肚菌鸡汤 – new dish. $68 for medium and $138 for large, available in for CNY à la carte menu). The chicken soup is robust yet tasted clean at the same time. The delicate essence of the chicken is infused into the soup, while the morsel mushrooms added a unique woody flavour into the soup while the “vegetarian collagen” gave it an air of exquisiteness. Yum Yum.

Wok-fried Prawn Ball with Traditional "Nanyang" Style (南洋风味虾球 – new dish. $36 for small, $54 for medium and $72 for large, available in for CNY à la carte menu). I would call this prawn rendang. The prawns are deep-fried first to create a crispy texture and also retain the juiciness and bouncy texture of the prawns. The “rendang” gravy is aromatic, fragrant and packs a good kick of spiciness. The signature lemongrass flavour really shines here. Love this dish and I even ask for white rice to savour the rendang sauce further.

Steamed Marble Goby "Fisherman Style" (渔夫蒸笋壳 , available in CNY Set Menu Wealth and Fortune). The Soon Hock is steam with simple salt marinate. The final toppings of ginger, spring onion and chilli are added at the end. This style showcases the freshness of the fish and allowing the natural sweetness of the soon hock to shines.

Signature Famous Treasure "Pen Cai" (盆菜, Pre-Order. Available in à la carte menu and take away menu. $388 for small, $588 for large). Ingredients include abalones, prawns, sea cucumbers, dried oysters, scallops, black moss, vegetables and solid stock gravy. The gravy is rich, robust and well infused with the luxurious ingredients especially the abalone, sea cucumber and dried oysters. It is best to all Pen Cai to cook longer and put in scallops and prawns last so it does not become overcooked.
