As REINVENTING TRADITION has been at the core of their culinary distinction an exclusive six-course menu has been crafted by Executive Chef Chong Chee Wah embodying the finest ingredients, notorious Chinese cuisine heritage delivered with colorful and contemporary flair.


The introductory amuse bouche of the dining journey was Cháng shòu miàn also known as Longevity noodles, a Chinese tradition performed in the first year of life that is enjoyed with the wish of a long life. Other highlights of the six-course set menu included Chāo Cháo Treasures, three bite-sized delicacies Golden garlic scallop, Salt ginger shredded chicken & the famous Peking Duck with black truffled foie gras sauce.
