We tried their selections of Goldleaf CNY Menu and here is our review.

Goldleaf Reunion Abalone Yu Sheng 

Goldleaf Reunion Abalone Yu Sheng. Fresh, delicious and crunchy. The abalone is bouncy and juicy, providing a contrasting chewy texture in the yu sheng. On top of that, keep a lookout for the Goldleaf signature lychee bubbles, for the bursting fruity juice in the yu sheng.

CNY Emperor Chicken in Housemade Sauce. Cooked in homemade sauce with mushroom and fish maw, it produced a superb dish filled with robust gravy. The chicken is moist, tasty and super tender, I almost able to inhale the chicken meat and the delicious chicken skin.

The portion is very big, each pax can have 2 servings each and best paired with a bowl of white rice. It is so so good, I even order this dish for my family reunion dinner.

Super Tender Breast Meat

Steamed Red Snapper in Hong Kong Style. Not a common type of fish served during CNY, however, the most important factor is the taste. Steamed to perfection, the red snapper flesh is firm, moist and flaky. The superior soy sauce and spring onions, accentuate the flavours of the flesh.

Braised Sea Cucumber with Tofu. I find this dish very comforting. The sea cucumber has a crunchy exterior, followed with a soft interior. The fried tofu is fried first to ensure it retains the texture during the braising process and also to add a slightly chewy texture in the dish.

Assorted Mushrooms with Seasonal Vegetables. Crunchy, earthy and light in flavours. A must-have dish for mushrooms lovers.

Sauteed Prawns with Black Pepper Sauce. The prawns have a crispy exterior, followed with crunchy and bouncy flesh. They are coated evenly caramelised black pepper sauce, that is sweet and packed with peppery heat as well.

Taiwanese Noodles with Scallops in XO Sauce. This dish uses the popular Taiwanese thick and broad noodle (台湾刀削面) that is known for its QQ texture. It is cooked in a fragrant, tasty and delicious XO sauce.

Yam Paste with Gingko Nuts and Goji Berries. The version of Orh Nee here is smooth and creamy, as the coconut milk is folded into the paste. This differs from the traditional version that is thick and the coconut milk poured on top before serving. I find Goldleaf version is very yummy and enjoyable, giving it a traditional sweet end to the meal.

CBK Verdict: A very enjoyable and comforting CNY meal with a Taiwanese flair.
