steamed grouper fish Cantoense style with premium soy sauce

Next up is a "Yuan Yang" style combination of roasted duck and fragrant garlic roasted chicken, which pack a depth of rich flavour. Gentle drizzle the thick sauce to the duck to give it a more robust flavour to the palate. Personally, we felt it was great as there are 2 different types of flavour being introduced in this dish, which is the umami roasted chicken and denser roasted duck. 

Any Chinese New Year dinner is incomplete without a fish, which carries the meaning "Nian Nian You Yu" as a wish to have the year with abundance of surplus. The grouper fish is prepared in Cantonese style and topped with premium soy sauce. It was a soothing dish and very gentle to the palate, and the timing comes just nice after the flavourful chickens and ducks.

Before the meal ends, the hotel has prepared a double boiled snow lotus with a range of Chinese herbs to cool the body as we prepare for more goodies in Chinese New Year.
