Beautiful beyond description. Extraordinary freshness , exemplary service.
Rare for a critic like me - But I truly enjoyed every dish.
Even the out of the ordinary yu sheng which my sank a little when it arrived but with an open heart ❤️ - after trying - it’s the best yu sheng so far for me this year . ( Thankful to a foodie buddy whom encouraged me to stick with this dish 😁)
Sometimes you just need to open your hearts and minds to new ideas although they may not be alluded to your original idea/s. You may be in for a wild surprise . Fresh beyond fresh with the green soft and leafy tender vegetables and the extremely fresh carrot and radish slices reminiscent of the traditional yu sheng hidden beneath the extremely fresh raw salmon slices.
Drizzled with a homemade yuzu lemon lime dressing and adorned with surprises of julienned jackfruit and freshly peeled pomelo.
The prawn pumpkin soup was another work of art to be praised. Fresh puréed pumpkin infused with prawn stock and then served with a huge fresh prawn with textures so similar to Lobster flesh. Very gratifying.
My favourites of the evening were definitely the xo sauce Lau Shu Fen and the handmade Hakka niang dou fu - one of the best versions I have tried ( filled to the brim with fresh pork and prawn meat ) and then cooked in a savoury black bean sauce.
The Lau Shu Feb was wok fried till so QQ , with a copious amount of dried shrimps and xo sauce. Simple dish it sounds but not easy to execute so well .
All the dishes were light on the palate - nothing too greasy or salty or heavily seasoned .
True to their mission of creating food good for their patrons through mindful eating .
Rare but I only have high praises for this place - So it’s one in a million maybe .
