WHY GO

Can­tonese spe­cial­ties that re­flect time-hon­oured tra­di­tions take cen­trestage at Zuan Yuan, with decor rem­i­nis­cent of Ori­en­tal splen­dor.

WHAT TO OR­DER

The sig­na­ture dou­ble-boiled black chicken soup is given an ex­tra di­men­sion with the in­clu­sion of abalone while the deep-fried baby duck is also teamed up with abalone, in the form of a sauce. Although at first sight it looks like noth­ing more than a small duck, it turns out to be ex­cep­tion­ally ten­der. The abalone sauce pro­vides a rich ac­com­pa­ni­ment.

There is a pi­o­neer­ing ap­proach to a non-tra­di­tional ingredient such as cod, mak­ing it even less tra­di­tional by adding ap­ples to a tomato-based sauce.

You can tell that the chefs are hav­ing fun with new flavours, and the cham­pion is durian. There is one dessert that com­bines three ap­proaches to durian in what should be­come an ac­cli­ma­ti­sa­tion course for those who think they hate durian. The durian spring roll, pan­cake and ice-cream make for a holy trin­ity of taste.
