Two-Michelin-Starred Ying Jee Club Welcomes the Year of the Rat with Luxurious Chinese New Year Menus and Puddings

(Hong Kong, 13th December, 2019) The season for auspicious meals is nearly here, and in celebration of the Year of the Rat, two-Michelin-starred Cantonese fine-dining restaurant Ying Jee Club is pleased to introduce a series of luxurious Chinese New Year menus and puddings. Available exclusively during the first month of the lunar new year, these limited-time menus feature authentic Cantonese recipes elevated through the use of the finest ingredients and stunningly artistic presentations, highlighting the masterful skills of Executive Chef Siu Hin Chi and his culinary team.

In celebration of the lunar new year, Chef Siu has added decadent ingredients such as foie gras and caviar to give blessings, prosperity and good luck to guests. As a result, diners can enjoy classic items given contemporary and elegant updates such as Taro Puff with Scallop and Caviar to represent a Chinese gold ingot and silver coins.


Idiomatic expressions and traditional foods with colourful, non-literal names are key components of Chinese culture, so Chef Siu’s Chinese New Year menus also feature dishes with auspicious names and meanings. For example, the Braised South Africa Abalone with Sea Moss and Sun Dried Oyster has the lucky Chinese name of 包羅萬有, an idiom that means “having everything.” This succulent dish showcases the culinary team’s skill and commitment to perfection, as the abalone must be braised for more than 10 hours and then combined with chicken, pork, Chinese ham and dried oyster that has been separately prepared before being served to guests.

As the festival calls for the gathering of family, friends and loved ones, Ying Jee Club is offering an exclusive 8-course set menu for groups of 10 guests. Priced at HK$12,888 + 10% service charge for the table, the showstopping menu includes crowd-pleasing Cantonese dishes like Crispy Suckling Pig; Marinated Sliced Abalone with Jelly Fish; Bird’s Nest Broth with Fish Maw, Conpoy and Chicken; and Crispy Salted Chicken. Other highlights include Sautéed Prawns and Scallops with Broccoli, Steamed Spotted Garoupa and Fried Rice with Roasted Duck, Chive and Garlic. To conclude the celebratory meal, there’s a trio of delicious desserts: Red Bean Cream with Sesame Dumplings, Sesame Ball with Banana and Lotus Seed Paste, and Glutinous Roll with Egg Custard and Coconut.

For smaller parties, Ying Jee Club has an equally tempting 8-course menu to satisfy gourmands with a delicious variety of moreish Cantonese recipes. Priced at HK$2,288 +10% per person, the menu’s standout dishes include Stir-fried Lobster with Shallot and Scallion, Steamed Tiger Garoupa with Bean Curd and Scallion and Double Boiled Imperial Bird’s Nest with Coconut Juice. Symbolising longevity, Braised E-Fu Noodles with Enoki Mushroom and Conpoy is a perfectly auspicious dish for diners to share during Chinese New Year.

In addition to set menus, Chef Siu has created special à la carte and dim sum items for Chinese New Year celebrations. Available at lunch only, the new dim sum items include Steamed Pork Dumpling with Shrimp and Whole Abalone; Braised Black Mushroom with Shrimp Paste, Scallop and Crab Roe; and Pan-fried Turnip Cake with Conpoy and Air Dried Meat. Meanwhile, dishes exclusive to the Chinese New Year à la carte menu include Sautéed Lobster with Water Chestnut and Crispy Conpoy, Pork Tongue Soup with Dried Oyster and Sea Moss and Fried Prawn with Sea Whelk and Asparagus.

It wouldn’t be Chinese New Year without delicious puddings, so guests will want to reserve Ying Jee Club’s limitedtime seasonal offerings to gift family and friends or bring to their own celebratory meals. Continuing its annual tradition, Ying Jee Club is offering two handcrafted, preservative-free CNY puddings in celebration of the Year of the Rat, both packaged in auspicious gift boxes symbolising luck, fortune and prosperity.

The savoury option is a classic Turnip Pudding with Conpoy and Air-dried Meat (HK$298 per box) made with grated turnip, conpoy, dried shrimp, Chinese sausage and Chinese bacon, creating a luxurious and flavour-packed option to enhance any meal. For those who prefer a sweeter taste, there’s the Chinese New Year Pudding with Coconut Milk and Ceylon Tea (HK$238 per box) which uniquely pairs coconut milk with a hint of delightful Ceylon fragrance. Both flavours will surely impress any discerning palate, making them the perfect gifts for Chinese New Year.
