[Media Invite] CNY Buffet Dinner at Amara Hotel

In about a month's time, we will be ushering the Year of the Dog.  Look at this yusheng which is arranged nicely in the shape of the dog, isn't this very creative?  In fact, I find the doggie face looks really cute too!  =)

On the 15 February 2018 from 6pm at Amara Hotel's Grand Ballroom, the one-time reunion dinner is opened to all guests celebrating this Lunar New Year’s 2018 Earth Dog. 

The reunion dinner is followed by a sumptuous line-up of culinary haven with affordable 8-course menus which guests can choose from. The Golden Prosperity at S$68++ or Joyous Abundance at S$88 per person with a minimum of six persons per table.

For that extra posh and private dining experience, guests can take up the Imperial Fortune reunion package at S$1,888++ for a table of 10 persons. Each room comes with a fully equipped family karaoke system. The menu comes with dishes like sea urchin, black chicken ginseng soup and cod fish.  We tried the karaoke while we were having our dinner in the Grand Ballroom, it was fun!

Chilled Angel Hair Pasta with Truffle Oil and Kombu

Drunken Chicken

 Cucumber with Sesame Dressing

Homemade Beetroot Salmon

Homemade Mandarin Orange Salmon

Hot Selection
Vegetarian Treasure Pot (Pen Cai)
For a change, you may want to try vegetarian pen cai.  I think this is an interesting alternative from the usual pencai even for non-vegetarian.

Black Pepper Crayfish

Smoked Duck with Camphor and Tea Leaves (Whole)

Roasted Chicken with Spicy Sichuan Sauce (Whole)

Beef Bourguignon

Dessert Station
Instead of having durian desserts which are becoming very common, Amara Hotel introduces a variety of Chempedak desserts instead.

Chempedak Cake

Chempedak Butter Cake

Chempedak Agar Agar

Chempedak Swiss Roll

Chempedak Pudding

Chempedak Crème Brulee

During the media tasting, we had the special Pomelo Tangyuan.  On the actual reunion dinner on 15 Feb 2018, the Tangyuan (glutinous rice ball) will be sprinkled with edible gold leaves to mark the customary occasion.

The highlights are the lion dance performance where the rambunctious lions will perform “Cai Qing”- the plucking of the greens and guests can get pictures with the adorable God of Fortune mascots distributing gold ingots of chocolates.
