Shisen Hanten at the Mandarin Orchard Singapore has prepared a wide array of Chinese New Year delicacies and festive goodies from 26 January to 5 March 2015. 

Ten set menus that are themed around good luck have been drawn up this auspicious season, designed to help usher in a year filled with prosperity, fortune, success and wealth. Favourites in the menus include steamed sea perch fillet, and stirfried clam and prawn in XO sauce.

Diners can feast on traditional Cantonese favourites in addition to seasonal treats such as the classic “lo hei,” (yu sheng) for which ingredients must be tossed as high as possible to attain greater heights and fortune for the year. 

Shisen Hanten's take on the lo hei includes salmon and olives. The Prosperity Salmon Yu Sheng topped with Plum Sauce with Olive and Spring Onion Oil boasts a harmony of flavours and offers good luck with every toss. 

Alternatively, the Baby Abalone Fortune Pot is ideal for small groups, and includes 20 treasures, including dried oyster and fish maw, to start the year of the goat off right.

Festive goodies such as Hokkaido pumpkin cake (S$38), golden ingot pineapple tart (eight pieces for S$38.80), and koi fish nian gao (a pair for S$48) provide a prosperous end to meals, and are excellent for gifting, too. Other gifts which can be preordered include honeyed walnuts, steamed rice cake with water chestnut and Shisen Hanten's very own mala sauce.

Helmed by celebrity Chef Chen Kentaro, Shisen Hanten is situated 35 floors above Orchard Road and offers breathtaking views. Reservations can be made by calling +65 6831 6262 or 6831 6266, or through emailing shisenhanten.orchard@meritushotels.com. The service charge is waived for all yu sheng and pen cai takeaway orders.
