Have you ever wondered what an authentic Chinese CNY would be like? For a taste of genuine eastern Chinese flavours, we head on over to Nanjing Impressions at Plaza Singapura
Jiangsu cuisine isn’t as well known here in Singapore in comparison to fare from more well-known regions like Guangzhou or Sichuan. So in celebration of the upcoming Year of the Dog, we’ve picked out three new CNY dishes from Nanjing Impressions—named so after the province’s capital—to showcase Jiangsu’s signature flavours.
Traditionally, pen cai is an iconic Chinese New Year dish here in Singapore. Nanjing Impressions’ rendition looks a little different from what we’ve come expect.
It comprises regional staples like salted duck, baby lobsters and restaurant signature Lion’s Head meatball. This is also in addition to a whopping 17 other ingredients: abalone, sea cucumber, dried oysters, conpoy and many others.
Price: $208 for six persons, $328 for 10
Treasure Trove dish
Braised pork trotters are yet another Jiangsu speciality.
Braised until they’re soft and tender, these trotters are then topped with fresh seafood like abalone, prawns and mussels to create Nanjing Impressions’ Treasure Trove CNY dish.
Braised Abalone & Sea Cucumber
Located on the eastern coast of China, Jiangsu cuisine benefits from an abundant supply of fresh seafood.
Abalone fans should certainly not miss out on this dish, in which premium abalone and sea cucumbers are braised slowly in superior stock.
This dish, in addition to the pen cai and Treasure Trove dishes, are available for dine-in and takeaway. Just be sure to call two days in advance to avoid disappointment!
Do note that the prices listed are subject to GST for takeaway and dine-in, with additional 10% service charge for dine-in guests.
