2010 Chinese New Year (CNY) Set Menu @ Whole Earth
Posted on 02 / 23 / 2010
Happen to get to know about CNY Set Menu at Whole Earth. There are about 5 CNY sets but we tried the 6-course CNY Set Menu - Joy Set @ S$188+ (LNY Special Menu) on 6 Feb 2010. Taking advantage of the early bird discount, we got a discount of 10% plus a complimentary dinning voucher.
Prosperity Abalone Fruit Enzyme YuSheng
This is well presented and looks so much better than the photo we got. Those few pea shoots on YuSheng look like fallen leaves lying on the ground, so natural and beautiful. There were many ingredients in this Yusheng, but I have no idea what there were and only know it tasted good. I guess the rest of us just find this dish delicious and really have no idea that it was healthier (using Fruit Enzyme) than the normal Yusheng which used plum sauce and oil.
Doubleboilded Golden Pumpkin Sharksfin Soup
LOVE it. It was real delicious, special, rich and my son kept asking for more. There were many different ingredients, yet balanced well and harmonize with the rest of the ingredients. Using pumpkin puree in the broth, make it looked like a pot of gold.
Nyonya Homemade Tofu Fish with Thai Dill Leaves
Appetizing and delectable! Something new to me - Thai Dill Leaves, still wondering what is that herb. The sauce of this dish came with the right thickness, sweet, sourly with bit spiciness. It was very appetizing and paired well with the Tofu Fish and steamed rice.
Monkeyhead Mushroom served on Asparagus
As usual, Monkeyhead Mushroom is our favourite. This dish was rather exceptional as it used Angelica Root which is full of goodness and yet not overpowering. Nicely presented. Asparagus is never my favourite but this dish was well done. The baby asparagus was fresh and not over cooked and soaking up the favour from the sauce nicely. Therefore, we could finish something which wasn't our favourite veggie.
Thai Vermicelli Tang Hoon
I like bean vermicelli (Tang Hoon) but not this combination. So, we requested the waitress to help us packed it as takeaway. Maybe, they should allow choices on noodle or vermicelli.
Homemade Lemongrass Jelly with Longan
For dessert, wobbly jelly full of lemongrass flavour was been served. Sweet (it tastes like there was honey) and refreshing!
Thai Battered Oyster Mushroom @ S$15
This dish was not in the CNY set menu. Whole Earth whips up this di
