First of all – it’s 7th day of Chinese New Year, also known as Ren Ri 人日 (Human’s Birthday) aka Chinese Valentine’s Day.
Hope this Year of Horse is treating you well so far. And of course, Chinese New Year and feasting is inseparable.
Cafe2000 is holding Chinese New Year Buffet Dinner at S$52++, Buffet Lunch at S$33++, Steamboat Dinner S$65++ per adult.
Of course the necessary ‘Lo Hei’ is available from S$28.80++ (Small) onwards, together with an array of New Year Goodies e.g.
Traditional Nian Gao w/Organice Cane Sugar
Carrot Cake with Chinese sausages
8 Treasures Niao Gao
Chestnut Cake w/Osmanthus
Also available are hampers starting from S$98+ onwards – Pierre Jean red wine, HK Chinese sausages, Specialty XO sauce and whole lot of other luxurious dried seafood items.
To my surprised, my favourite ingredient salted egg yolk is found in Salted Egg Yolk Stir Fried Crab.
Satay sticks fared well too with tasty marinade and tender meat.
Western dishes like baked pasta, potato gratin, lasagne and thin pizza slices were decent.
There is a small Japanese food station on the side – nevermind the soba and maki.
Hit the sashimi – salmon and tuna straight!
I especially love the well pan fried potato cubes to accompany the grilled meat items.
Each one of them was flavourful and succulent – from New Zealand rack of lamb to US Angus beef slices.
Cold seafood was decent – not extraordinarily fresh but the juicy prawns.
Scallops, shucked oysters, Hokkaido king crab legs, crabs and crayfish for you to indulge in.
I love the Teriyaki style grilled salmon chunks and the intense white wine sautee sea snails.
Make sure you eat the cheese baked scallop once arrived, that was pretty satiating.
For the upcoming Valentine’s Day – International Buffet Dinner included a glass of Sparkling Rose $ 70.00++ per adult is available.
