Plaza Brasserie (PARKROYAL On Beach Road) Chinese New Year Buffet 2017

[Media Invite]

Even though each of us has busy schedule, all our extended family members make an effort to have reunion dinner together on the eve of Chinese New Year. To enhance the bonding moment, the choice of food for reunion dinner is very important, however, one challenge we face is to accommodate everyone's preference. Therefore, the fusion of local, Asian and international flavours offered by Plaza Brasserie at PARKROYAL on Beach Road would solve our problem!

Inspired by the Chinese zodiac horoscope of the rooster, the buffet menu of Chinese New Year Prosperity Feast 2017 at Plaza Brasserie gave us a pleasant surprise!

To celebrate Chinese New Year, one of our favourite activities is "lo-hei" (撈起), and my children love to toss the ingredients as high as they can! We were introduced to an interesting creation called Prosperity Lo-Hei Yusheng with Deep-fried Salmon Skin & Deep-fried Chicken Skin! What a creative twist by Executive Chef Ken to the traditional yusheng! My children loved the deep-fried salmon skin and deep-fried chicken skin which were very crispy and yet not too oily.

As a Cantonese, I love drinking soup. 'Chicken' Jumps Over The Wall won my heart as I could taste every single drop of goodness from the perfect combination of chicken drumsticks, fish maw, dried scallops and mushrooms. The chicken drumsticks were succulent and soft, it was very easy for me to cut for my children.

I haven't had eaten duck meat for a long time because I had some unpleasant experience with duck meat that was too tough and dry to chew. However, Braised Eight Treasures Boneless Duck offered me a new experience with duck meat - succulent and tasty!

The next dish was Sea Cucumber with Roasted Pork. The roasted pork was tender and juicy, and the sea cucumber was infused with the flavourful sauce. The crunchy broccoli balanced the texture of the dish. 

Please pardon my "unglam" look when I savour Salted Egg Crab. I smiled to the waiter who offered me some serviettes - I didn't really need the serviettes to clean my fingers, because the salted egg sauce was finger licking good! 

We were delighted to find that there were many variations to the chicken wings! Wings of Fortune - Soya, Garlic, Spicy & Salted Egg, each wing is unique with different flavour. I love chicken wings and drumlets, and I finished all 4 of them within 59 seconds! If you ask me which one was my favouite, I would say that the soya one got my vote!

After all the delicious protein treat, we had some Fried Crab Meat Mee Sua to balance the meal with some carbohydrates. It was a heaven for crab lovers to savour crab meat without having the trouble to de-shell the crab! 

At the end of the hearty Chinese New Year reunion dinner, it would be nice to catch up with the family members over some delicious Chinese New Year Assorted Cookies, and some tea or coffee!

Of course, there are many other dishes on the buffet menu!

Thank you Plaza Brasserie at PARKROYAL On Beach Road for the gastronomic treat!
