    Yusheng with white chocolate?! Yes, the chef has fashioned eight piglets from white chocolate for this Chinese New Year. Mindful of striking the right balance of flavours, the plum sauce is tweaked to be less sweet.

    On the menu are also eight yusheng options that include everything from smoked salmon ($88) to more unconventional combinations such as bird’s nest and pear ($138), marinated hokkigai clam with jellyfish ($98) and a vegetarian purple cauliflower with lily bulbs ($88). For something really unique, top up your dish with additional accompaniments of choice, such as poached lobster, salted egg yolk crispy fish skin, fish lips and more (from $10 per portion).
