<Sing Yin Deluxe Combination Platter>
This delicate deluxe combination platter comes with three different cold and warm appetizers. We started off with the Jellyfish Marinated In Vintage Vinegar As expected with such a classic “banguet feast” appetizer dish, this was extremely crunchy jellyfish, but what a clever twist to add the vintage vinegar that offers a pleasant aromatic flavour and this takes it to another level, making it so complex and tasty on the palate. A must try!  We then moved on to the succulent Roasted Crispy Suckling Pig that was an absolutely perfect rendition of one of our favourite dishes. The crackling skin was absolutely crispy to the max and the meat was so flavoursome, never too greasy and never enough. The last bite on the plate was the beautifully  Crispy Sliced Lotus Stuffed With Crab Meat  - Another triumphant creation by Chef Wong that came with a perfect combination of a crispy outer shell and delicate yet meaty crab meat being stuffed inside that is not dominating and extremely satisfying on the palate. It was also such a good counterpoint after the richness of the suckling pig. Put this on your hit list!

<Double-Boiled Chicken Soup with Black Wolfberry and Sea Cucumber>
This light chicken consommé is packed with flavour and is simply so heart-warming. The lightly cloudy broth was extracted from the additional ingredients that added some texture but never took away from the key highlight, which could have been enjoyed just on its own, but it made for a lovely presentation with the floating wolfberry that adds a hint of sweetness to the taste.

<Braised Boston Lobster with Fresh Chinese Yam and Chenopodium Quinoa>
Deliciously cooked and artfully presented food deftly balances contemporary influences with unwavering respect for tradition on a large hollow pasta dish plate. The meaty lobster was so fresh and tender, tasting the sea almost immediately and well paired with the really crunchy diced yam that is full of fibre, absorbing the entire accompanied sauce that is simply umami. The quinoa adds another element that is visual and subtle in flavour on the palate. Overall a winning combination that shows Chef Wong's crafted culinary skill.

<Braised American Angus Beef Rib with Gravy Sauce>
Soft, tender, juicy and flavoursome. The meat was sensationally braised in precise cooking with succulent taste, garnished with Bok Choy roots. The gravy was the cherry on top with the added bonus of dried mushrooms, with an all-round quality which cannot be denied. This is a great dish for beef lovers!

<Braised Noodle with Abalone, Ginger and Spring Onion>
Seemingly Chef Wong’s master creation focuses a lot on his most sought-after dishes that uses the braised cooking technique to bring out the best of the chosen ingredients. The presentation on this dish may be quite monotonous yet let the ingredients speak by itself as this quintessential Cantonese noodle dish absorbed the gravy thoroughly and harmoniously in taste with the entire combination of flavours that was so delicious. A good way to end the savoury sojourn. Yum!

<Sing Yin Singature Dessert Sampler>
Osmanthus Pudding Jelly Such a classic and all time favorite desert visually admirable and also taste wise. It provides a refresher for the palate after so many of the rich tastes.  The Crispy Red Bean Sesame Ball - Another classic and brilliantly executed. Fluffy and a little richer in texture that was packed with flavour with sweet red bean filling and was a nice contrast on the palate after the osmanthus pudding jelly and then to round up with the hearty, warm and creamy Almond Soup - This well-like Cantonese soup base and delicious desert that has such a harmonious and delightful flavour to end Chef Wong’s culinary sojourn and you can’t get better than this rendition.

The whole evening was pleasant and ticked all the boxes of the best dishes and to highlight the meticulous yet complex cooking techniques that Cantonese culinary is renowned for. The service was perfectly timed and they listened to our every request and always attended to our table at just the right time throughout the evening. You simply must make a bee line for Sing Yin and indulge your culinary senses. Chef Wong’s epicurean perfection focuses on high-level selected ingredients. It was indeed a lucky treat to be able to experience the master chef’s creation with realistic excitement and blissful world class gastronomy adventure. As the name suggests, you can dine like a star at Sing Yin or at least savour the star-rated feast from its renown Cantonese dining and taste from many of their signature star dusted dishes that convey a refreshing interpretation of contemporary and a truly quintessential Cantonese gastronomy, the hearty Sing Yin W Hong Kong is where you need to go.
