Only a few more days before the Fire Rooster comes in. Still looking for a place to celebrate the Chinese New Year? Why not at Marco Polo’s Lung Hin where you’ll surely be treated to a grand and fun celebration. 😉
Yes, the place does look grand. It exudes this elegance yet making their diners feel right at ease. I liked the seating arrangement on the right and left side of the place as it’s suited for those small gatherings. They also have function rooms that’s perfect for corporate meetings or fun celebrations.
For this year, Executive Chef Raymond Yeung prepared set menus, namely, Yin and Yang. It’s just fitting for the festive celebration.
And the plate looks really lovely with all those colors. Each ingredient serves a purpose to the whole plate aside from it being tasty. After the sauces were added in, it was now time for the fun part: the mixing part. 🙂
And it looked like they had fun! Hahaha. They said that the higher the toss is, the more luck one would have. And it’s okay to be messy. It’s all part of that dish’s charm. The mixed dish might not have looked appealing but it was tasty.
This had an earthy and calming taste. It was very soothing. The pork was very tender and paired nicely with the dried oyster.
This probably is their version of a Pata Tim. And I must say, it is gooooddd. This was one of my fave dishes that day. The taste was rightly sweet. And the meat was just tender.
Say hello to those huge prawns! I liked the simplicity of this dish. It wasn’t overdone and the red wine pears paired nicely with the prawns and asparagus.
To be honest, not much of a pigeon fan. I can’t recall the last time I ate one. But this was actually okay. The meat was tender. I especially liked the flavorful fried skin.
Despite its huge serving, it didn’t get to an oily point. The thing with fried rice is that it tends to be oily at times. So sometimes, you’re left with this greasy feel. This didn’t do that. I could have many cups of this.
I only had one piece but I could actually eat 3 or more. Hahaha. These pan-fried sweets were not too sweet. I liked the hints of coconut that makes a good ending to all the dishes served.
And we got buns! This isn’t part of their set menu but really more of a Lung Hin offer. Served warm and soft, I liked the mild sweetness of the filling which went nicely with the dough.
And their serving of Iced Tea was huge! Can’t remember if I finished it. It was good as you could still taste the brewed tea. It wasn’t that sweet too. Perfect as a palate cleanser
With all the dishes served, it was indeed Yin and Yang. It created this balance yet having that festive feel. Overall, it was a good menu that will surely bring luck to all its diners. Couple that with the nice ambiance, one would surely have a good time celebrating Chinese New Year here. 😉
