This year, Ti Chen is offering three (3) themed set menu creations namely the Silver and Gold Set, Rich and Affluent Set, and Fortune and Longevity Set, signifying representations of the astrological tradition.

“We are excited about our special menu created for our guests this year, highlighting the abundance set menu style meal packages of Silver and Gold, Rich and Affluent, and Fortune and Longevity, targeting corporate clients, families and friends to toss and celebrate the mark of another wonderful season,” says Chef Lim Chee Woi, Chinese Executive Chef. “2020 is set to be a year filled with luck, growth and prosperity”. Symbolic of good luck, prosperity, health and all things auspicious, toss to “Loh Hei” with Ti Chen.

Below are some of the restaurant’s signature dishes (that are in the three menus) that we tried during the media preview.
Soft Shell Crab and Salmon Yee Sang with Crispy Shredded Treasures and Blackcurrant-Plum Dressing
This yee sang was topped with both salmon and soft shell crab! Takes the crown for being my fav yee sang (so far) this year!
Double Boiled Chicken and Vegetable Soup with Bamboo Pith, Fish Maw and Sun Dried Scallops
A rich and flavourful (and very healthy!) soup that really warms the soul!
Stewed Chicken with Dried Seafood and Chinese Herb
Something different from normal (and sometimes dry) roast chicken.
Oven Baked Fresh Water Prawns with Chef’s Signature Sauce
One word to describe this – DECADENT!
Steamed Fish Cod Fillets with Chinese Herb in Congee Sauce
This was a really wonderful dish of perfectly cooked cod fillets in a flavourful (but not overpowering) sauce!
Braised Abalone 5 Head, Dried Seafood Cake and Fatt Choy with Green Vegetable
Chilled Lemon Grass Jelly with Yuzu Sorbet
Steamed Golden Fish Chinese New Year Cake with Grated Coconut
A sweet end to the meal with steamed nian gao “fishes” swimming among the grated coconut. Top marks for presentation!
