Chinese New Year Delights from Min Jiang and Goodwood Park

Chinese New Year Delights from Min Jiang and Goodwood Park

Chinese New Year 2016 - Min Jiang at One-North - Fruity Yusheng with Bacon & White Truffle Oil

The culinary teams from Min Jiang (Goodwood Park Hotel) and Min Jiang at One-North have introduced three new, raw fish-less Yusheng creations to tuck into this year. My personal pick is the Fruity Yusheng with Bacon & White Truffle Oil (Dine-in only at One-North outlet, $78 small, $128 large) crafted by Master Chef Goh Chee Kong.

It is a delectable teaming of vibrant colours and flavours of mango, rock melon, Japanese cucumber and strawberries with a generous portion of greens, layered with crisp bacon strips, deep-fried yam and potato slivers, then finished with a flourish of chef’s own dressing sauce—a unique blend of plum sauce, mixed fruits and heady white truffle oil.

If you’re looking for a noteworthy takeaway option, try the Crispy Salmon Skin Yusheng ($118 large) by Master Chef Chan Hwan Kee that’s available for both dine-in and takeaway at Min Jiang.

The artful and well-executed plate of fresh, crunchy vegetables—sweet romaine hearts, yellow frisée, wild arugula, baby radish, purple cabbage and the likes—is enjoyed with a touch of traditional orange peel, jellyfish, crisp crunch of homemade fried salmon skin, and a mix of ground peanuts, sesame seeds and pine nuts for that added earthy fragrance and crunch.

Perfect for anyone who loves mahjong is Master Chef Chan’s ‘Gong Xi Fa Cai’ (Dine-in and takeaway at Min Jiang, $298 for 8 persons)—a salt crust replica of an oversized ‘Fa’ (發) mahjong tile that breaks to reveal a feast of fork-tender, braised pig’s trotter, Australian 6-head abalones, dried scallops, flower mushrooms and black moss luxuriating in a rich, flavoursome sauce.

What started out as just something fun for Jasper has developed into a passion for food over the years. Always having weird urges to take pictures of other diners’ food, he is used to being forcefully restrained by dining companions, but has yet to have security called on him. Jasper is open to all sorts of cuisines and dishes, and is always on the lookout for a good meal or deal. To him, an ideal restaurant is one that combines good food, friendly service and a warm ambience. "Food is all about the dining experience."
