Together with omy.sg and Lianhe Wanbao, a special collaboration was held together with food critic Ah Lun(黄卓伦), I had a chance to savour some good foods from another 2 different famous restaurants in Singapore.
Read about my first experience here!
Of course, With Christmas and Chinese new year coming by, we've been hosted with some of the best foods, according to the festive seasons.
First up, Fortune Yu Sheng at Shin Yeh restaurant.
as part of our chinese tradition in Singapore, we would recite prosperous chinese quotes, like "恭喜发财“, meaning congrats on the upcoming fortunes, while we mix up the ingredients.
And comes the tossing, the higher, the more "stirs", the better our fortunes!
However messy it can be, or how unusual the ingredients are, it always tastes delicious, we had fresh sashimi and mandarins(chinese oranges) in it!
Next, Taiwan-style Double-boiled Abalone, pig's stomach, chicken, scallop and sea cucumber in Casserole.
The thick chicken broth(I think it was chicken broth), was just so satisfying!
And a whole piece of abalone(a type of sea snail by the way)
Oh yeah, I had to control my appetite and save some food for Kiyomi who came late! She's lucky I didn't touch her shares!
Taiwan-style steamed marble goby with small olives.
Teach you friendly readers something! If any fish is prepared well, the skin will never/should not stick onto the chopsticks!
Smoked chicken with premium Taiwan Oolong tea, really strong Oolong smell, and very deeply marinated.
Crispy chicken skin.
Every part, including the breast, was tender, guess the chef spent lots of time massaging the dead chicken.
A dish hat wasn't listed, guess it was a surprise from the chef, stir fried veggies with large crunchy prawns.
Nice prawns....now into my mouth you go...
Second surprise from the chef, mua chi with crushed peanuts, very common Taiwanese snack, popular with local Singaporeans, mua chi is basically minced rice.
Kiyomi's happiness = Food food food.....
Taiwan-style red beans over shaved coconut ice and yam cubes.
close up on the shaved coconut ice.
the yam cubes, yammy.

Next place! Szechuan court! While everyone was still full with the food we ate at Shin Yeh, we had a quick rest.
First warm up dish, Garden grown salads with pan seared shitake mushroom in teriyaki dressing.
those orange color fried carrots/orange peel were my favorite part.
Double-boiled chicken soup with supream mixed dried seafood, which includes abalone, fish belly, shredded fish lips, dried oyster, dried scallop, pacific clam.
Look at the size of this mussel!
The soup looked normal at first, a closer look and a few scoops, everything was hidden.
more different varieties of seafood in the soup.
Braised cod in shaffot oyster sauce with sauteed, assorted vegetable, egg white ad diced capsicums.
Probably Kiyomi and my favorite of that day!
Kiyomi's second happiness photo of the day.
Once again, like I've emphasized, fish that's well done, will not have it's skin sticking with the chopsticks, yummy cod skin!
Wok-fried rice served with roasted spices chicken.
Very spicy toppings, Szechuan people(I mean the real place in China) have a habit of consuming really hot and spicy food.
The dessert platter, cream of mango sago pomelo, Chng Tng and Chilli ice cream, that's right, chilli ice cream, you didn't read wrongly.
Honestly, the chilli ice cream wasn't up to my liking at all, I had small bite and left it aside, I don't like chilli in my ice cream! But nonetheless, it's worth a try if you're a chilli lover, well, I'm not.
With the super spicy ice cream, I was glad I didn't had the Chng Tng and cream of mango sago shots yet.
Another surprise from the chef, layered chocolate log cake.
It was pretty funny, who uses chopsticks to eat cakes! WE DO!
Our friendly guests.
