Hamachi “Loh Hei” Platter $78 (small), $138 (large)

Featuring Hamachi that has been specially flown in all the way from Japan, this Loh Hei platter is one of the new items that will be introduced.

CNY ’18: A Joyous Reunion Celebration @ Cassia, Capella Singapore

Chinese New Year is just around the corner and what better way to usher in the Year of the Dog than to indulge in a medley of sophisticated Cantonese dishes concocted by Cassia’s executive chef, Chef Lee Hiu Ngai. For all 15 days of the Lunar New Year – beginning from 16 February to 2 March – Chef Lee will be delighting diners with signature items from his Lunar New Year set menus.

These once-a- year specialities include: wok-fried prawns stuffed with minced shrimp and garlic, braised three-head Australian abalone with sea cucumber, and double-boiled chicken broth with fish maw, not forgetting Cassia’s signature Lou Hei platter – a prosperity salad tossed with fresh seafood and vibrant greens. As the set menus would only be available for a limited period, it is advisable for diners to book early to avoid disappointment. Additionally, the Prosperity Lou Hei ($68++ per platter) and Cassia Signature Lou Hei ($38++ per person, min 2 pax) will be available for both dine-in and take-away from 1 Feb to 2 March.

Ring in another year of prosperity and boundless success with Cassia Signature Lou Hei platter, a multi-layered assemblage of thinly sliced vibrant greens moulded in the shape of Chinese pyramids. Other symbolic condiments and ingredients, such as crushed peanuts, golden crackers, salmon sashimi, arctic surf clams, and plump lobster meat, are generously scattered around the pyramid for additional boosts of luck and wealth. Before the mandatory tossing occurs, a server from Cassia will sweeten the whole experience with honeyed lashings of invigorating hawthorn sauce, a secret sweet-and- sour blend that magically unites and complements the other flavours of the dish. On the whole, this was one of the best yushengs that we had by far for the simplistic, no-frills nature of the salad was, in essence, delightfully palatable and almost addictive!
