Chynna Stanchart Dinner-2 (640x480)

Let's see what Chynna has in store for this Extravagant 8 Menu... which, by the way, is only available from 20 January till 17 February 2011.

P1030425 (640x474)

As customary, a Lunar New Year festive meal will not be "festive" without starting off with a Lo Sang - a concoction of shredded vegetables and fruits, fried crispies, crushed peanuts and tossed with a special sauce.

P1030454 (640x427)

Organic Melon, Gold Pumpkin & Fruits Lo Sang
This traditional dish has all the usual colourful shredded vegetables and lots of crispies & crushed peanuts - will definitely appeal to those who love lots of crunch & nuts in their Lo Sang!

P1030477 (640x480)

Hot & Sour Soup with Kimchi, Fish Maw & Bamboo Piths
The regular Hot & Sour Szechuan-style soup given an extra "oomph" from the dollop of Kimchi added.

P1030491 (640x463)

Steamed Canadian Cod in Fisherman Sauce

P1030506 (640x472)

Stewed Sun-dried Oysters with Fatt Choy, Braised Peanuts & Chicken
Very "home-cooked" feel to this dish, as the cooking style and ingredients used bring on the "comfort food" nuance - a tad too heavy on the sodium though... perhaps some white rice accompanying this would not be a bad idea?

P1030510 (640x488)

Wok-fried Nian Gao with Chinese Cabbage & Mushrooms
Slices of white smooth slippery rice cakes lightly cooked with perhaps just a dash of hoisin sauce?

P1030528 (640x441)

And dessert...

Chynna Stanchart Dinner (640x480)

Chynna is helmed by the affable Chef HH Lam...
