Today’s the second day of a brand new year and in 30 days’ time, we will be celebrating Chinese New Year. In recent years, many Chinese families [including ours] have moved away from the tradition of dining at home to dining out for reunion dinners and if you belong to the latter, here’s one alternative you might want to look at.
We were recently invited to a food tasting session at STREET 50 Restaurant & Bar and we had a really great time of bountiful feasting. Just to let you know, the Fortune of Flavours Buffet at STREET 50 Restaurant & Bar fuses the flavours and tastes of both Western and Asian cuisines and this is very unlike the typical Chinese menu you find in a Chinese restaurant.

This special menu is available for 5 days only, from 29th January to 2nd February 2014 and it is priced at $58++ for adults and $28++ kids between 6 and 12 years old. The option of adding on free-flow of alcohol, soft drinks, and juices is also available at an additional cost of $28++. Kids below 6 get to enjoy the Fortune of Flavours buffet for free with every paying adult.

5 Specials Highlights of the Fortune of Flavours Buffet

Smoked Duck & Salmon Yu Sheng

A colourful platter of shredded vegetables like carrots, cucumbers, radish, pomelo, pickled ginger, red and green yam, and coupled together with slices of fresh salmon and succulent slices of smoked duck. Toss it together with the ginger and sour plum sauce for sweeter relationships with your loved ones and you will be in for a refreshing and flavourful time.

Prawn Tartare with Rock Melon and Nuts

Salad prawns layered with sliced Japanese cucumber and rock melon, then dressed in a tangy ginger and Thai mango dressing, this bite-sized appetizer will welcome you with an abundantly blessed year ahead and stimulate your taste buds for the rest of the buffet’s fare.

Curried Chicken in Lychee Tempura

Golden round pillows of Curried Chicken in Lychee Tempura served on a bed of rice crisps burst into a symphony of flavours at each bite. The sweetness of lychee accompanies the chunks of chicken, along with a hint of curry powder. This unique twist of flavour is sure to appeal to all taste buds, especially children.

Lion Head Meatball with Truffle Oil, Wood Ear Fungus & Water Chestnuts

Immersed in a thick gravy of flavour, the Lion Head Meatball with Truffle Oil, Wood Ear Fungus & Water Chestnuts would have you coming back for seconds. This Shanghainese meatball is a combination of minced pork, mushrooms, chestnuts, coriander, Chinese wine and truffle oil.

Banana and Sago Cotta

The smooth creamy cotta is topped with caramelized cubes of banana that has been simmered slowly with gula melaka. Definitely a divine melt-in-the-mouth goodness.

Apart from the 5 special highlights, the Fortune of Flavours Buffet also offers a variety of gourmet dishes such as Salmon Roll with Barley Salad & Wolfberries in Aspic, Drunken Chicken, Chinese Cold Cuts Platter, Chicken Soup with Scallops, Fish Maw & Chinese Zucchini, Wok-Fried Beef with Tri-Pepper, Dried Longan & Fermented Beancurd, Braised Sea Cucumber with Mushroom, Chinese Spinach & Fatt Choy, Egg Noodles with Prawns, Shredded Duck & Yellow Chives, Warm Glutinous Rice with Chinese Sausage & Lotus seeds.
