Dine like a king – or like important politicians and foreign ambassadors – over at Imperial Feast! Commonly known as the Guo Yan, the imperial feast traditionally features a myriad of legendary cooking techniques from all over imperial China, showcasing the best that Chinese cuisine has to offer.
And Imperial Feast has come up with picket-friendly prices for everyone to enjoy!
The dishes at Imperial Feast are skilfully prepared by award-winning Chef Wu Hai Feng, who has hosted many international leaders, including President Clinton during his visit to Beijing for the news conference with President Jiang Zemin in 1998.
The dishes here at Imperial Feast are rooted in Huaiyang and Cantonese cuisines, which are two of the Four Great Traditions in Chinese cuisine.
And now, for just $48++ (usual price $88++) you can enjoy the traditional state banquet dishes!
Here’re what the set consists of:
1. Imperial Feast Trio Appetiser Platter
This comes with tender abalone uniquely paired with wasabi, zesty passionfruit prawns, and crunchy jellyfish marinated in aged vinegar. A nice marriage between eastern and western cuisine.
2. Chrysanthemum Tofu Soup
A delicacy requiring many years of knife training experience to execute, this dish consists of silky tofu finely sliced into 3,600 strands to form the shape of a chrysanthemum, which sits in a bowl of chicken broth slow-simmered with 2 types of chicken for 8 hours.
This dish was also the winner of the Grand Champion at the 2015 Chinese World Chef Championships!
3. Spanish Kurobuta Pork Chop with Yuzu
Kurabuta pork is beautifully marinated in a special home-made sauce with citrusy yuzu in this dish. The pork chop is then crisp-fried in a pan till golden perfection and garnished with pomelo for a light, zesty finish.
4. Fried Cod Fish with Green Puree
A Guangdong dish with a western twist, the cod fish is baked first and then pan-fried (instead of steamed), and paired with a Western-style puree that is inspired by traditional Cantonese flavours.
5. Tobiko Egg White Fried Rice with Crab Meat and Scallop
Fragrant fried rice mixture of 4 different rice types, stir fried with scallops and crab meat topped off with crunchy gold dusted rice puffs and tobiko. A healthy version cooked using egg whites instead of yolks, the dish requires careful attention of the heat and skilful execution for perfect individual grains that are expertly tossed to a light and less-greasy finish.
6. Double Boiled Roselle Flowers with Red Dates & Dried Longan
A nourishing & collagen booster traditional desert to end your meal, the roselle flowers and amber dew are great for beauty, digestive system, and easing the joints.
Apart from these Guo Yan dishes, you can also try out some of Chef Wu’s other signature dishes that boasts his culinary skills, such as the Squirrel Fish ($58), an entirely deboned fish curled delightfully while frying to resemble a bushy squirrel’s tail and topped with sweet and sour sauce with capsicum and pine nuts. We can imagine just how Instaworthy this dish is going to be.
