Media Tasting at Yan Restaurant
Yàn ‘宴’, a lavishly furnished Cantonese restaurant located within National Gallery Singapore, brings forth the meaning of convivial gatherings and feelings of togetherness.
Its usual menu reflects the fine authentic Cantonese cuisine through the diversity of ingredients and innovative pairings. Besides a couple of new and existing dishes from its menu, Yan has also rolled out their signature repertoire of five traditional mooncakes, and a new snowskin mooncake to mark and celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival.
Started off with the least impressive dish that night would be the Yan’s combination platter of soy sauce chicken, house special caramelised BBQ pork and the side of sliced cucumbers. Not exactly appreciating the slightly tough chicken breast meat but really love the lean slices of caramelised BBQ pork.
The scent of truffle filled the air as the Steamed Black Cod Fillet with Truffle Oil and Minced Garlic arrived. Being fond of garlic, I would say I really enjoyed this truffle-garlic combination that paired with the cod fillet. Not forgetting the bed of golden mushrooms beneath, soaking up the aromatic gravy.
The House Special Baked Pork Ribs with Black Olive would be my kind of slow food to tone down my eating pace as well as to appreciate its many cooking process. The Australian pork rib was first marinated, steamed, and deep fried before sautéed with preserved black olive sauce, sugar, and vinegar. It results in the meat texture being just right!
Yan Signature Braised Rice Vermicelli with Shrimps, Fish and Salted Fish was surprising delicious despite its mundane appearance. The ingredients were wok fried before adding into the stock to braised further, before adding in the rice vermicelli.
Besides Yan’s classic selection of White Lotus Paste Mooncakes with macadamia nuts or single / double yolk, thousand layers yam mooncakes, Yan’s Mao Shan Wang Durian Snowskin Mooncakes has made a debut this year.
Be sure to be addicted to the rich, luscious Mao Shan Wang durian pulp encased within yellow snowskin.
Available as a set of four, the mooncakes will be presented in elegant two-tiered fuchsia.
