Peony Jade Restaurant's 2016 CNY Artful Creations

[CNY 2016] Peony Jade Restaurant at Keppel Club might not be located at the most accessible of locations without car transport, but still I made my way over again this year because the previous Lo Hei meal I had there made quite an impression.

The branch at Clarke Quay could be more convenient for most, but no matter which is your preferred branch, Peony Jade is already poised to welcome the prosperous year of the monkey with new artful creations, unique bites, meticulously planned set menus, and takeaway packages from 14 January to 22 February 2016.

Highlights include Monkey-shaped Yu Sheng, Sautéed Boston Lobster, Premium Black Truffle & Braised Whole Abalone Poon Choy, Steamed Red Grouper Fillet, Roasted Kurobuta Pork Belly, Pit-fired Roasted Deboned Suckling Pig Rolls, Poached Boston Lobster Broth.

Are you salivating already? :p

The Monkey-shaped Yu Sheng 猴(厚)瑞添财连年步步高捞生 ($388.88, 10pax, dine-in, 1-day advance order) had the whole table at hello with its adorable design, before enticing us with the host of premium seafood including lobster from Canada, premium 2-head golden abalone from Australia, geoduck clam, sashimi-grade tuna and salmon.

Together with crispy salmon skin, champagne jelly, lychee pulps-pops, deep-fried thin taro strips, roasted pine nuts, toasted sesame seeds and even edible 18k gold leaves tossed in fresh apricot and peach jam dressing, it was indeed a joyous deluxe party in the mouth.

This is the type of "Chinese-style salad" which I don't mind eating everyday If I can! Lol!

I also don't mind having more of that Premium Black Truffle & Braised Whole Abalone Poon Choi 黑松露原只发财鮑鱼盆菜 ($88.88 per pax, $498.88 medium-6pax, $698.88 large-10pax, dine-in, 1-day advance order)! What began as a humble peasant dish that originated some 900 years ago in China has now evolved into a classic culinary touchstone on any celebratory table.

The rendition at Peony Jade luxuriates with 6-head whole abalone from Australia, dace fish, shrimp balls with foie gras, fresh plump scallops, spikes sea cucumber from South Africa, king-size prawns, shiitake mushrooms, premium golden oysters, deshelled crab claws, high-grade fish maw, taro and broccoli.

This was extremely irresistible, especially when the flavors are further intensified with ooh..... shaved black truffles!

We continued with Pit-fired Roasted Deboned Suckling Pig Rolls 玉河畔发财鸿运生炒腊味糯米乳猪 ($198.88 half-6pax, $388.88 whole-10pax, dine-in & takeaway, 1-day advance order required).

The Cantonese roast favorite with its perfectly-crisp skin is coupled with fragrantly wok-fried glutinous rice, Shiitake mushrooms and Chinese sausages.

Eating this dish is akin to being in a love-hate relationship. You know the savory richness is not exactly the healthiest, but its deliciousness binds you so deeply that you just surrender to whatever your heart tells you to do. Think less and just enjoy.

From one indulgence to the next, Sauteed Boston Lobster with Egg White 鱼子, 瑶柱, 蛋白炒波士顿龙虾 ($128.88, 8pax, dine-in, 1-day advance order) that is presented in form of a cherry blossom tree to signify bliss, success and fortune in the new year.

Topped with crispy conpoy, fish roe and caviar, this delicacy was comparatively lighter on the palate to the earlier dishes, but no less gratifying.

Set menus are priced from $118 per pax to $658 for a group of 6pax, and from $798 to $1898 for a table of up to 10pax. Ala-Carte Buffet is also available for lunch and dinner at &78.88 per adult (50% off for child below 10 years old)
