We’re loving the sound of latest offerings, In the Mood for Lobsters, River Prawn Fiesta, and Secrets of a Claypot.

Fans of claypot dishes can expect 19 tantalising creations from executive Cantonese chef Leung Wing Chung. We like the nourishing Claypot Rice with Chicken, Live Frog and Black Garlic for its sweet and earthy notes. Try the spicy Braised Beef Tendon with Curry Sauce (best with white rice) and the tender Braised Venison with Vermicelli in Spicy Chilli sauce. $68/person for a seven-course menu.
