Amazing CNY Reunion Meal - Edit

Elemen is a restaurant offering a pleasant dining experience by serving wholesome food that benefits your health without compromising the Earth’s sustainability. This Chinese New Year they will have a menu serving a wonderfully made 8 course menu that is sure to fulfill your reunion meal needs.

Chinese New Year ‘Proper-licious’ Course Menu:

We start off with Handmade Rosemary Breadsticks and Raspberry Yoghurt for starters. I was very fascinated by the shiny pink yoghurt but I couldn’t try it ‘cause (obviously) it has dairy in it. The bread sticks are vegan! It’s infused with rosemary so it smells aromatic.

Then comes the 松露 富貴撈生 Truffle Yu Sheng with a grand entry of dry ice fog.
What a sight to see! You can smell the truffle scent from afar. The Yu Sheng consist of Konnyaku slices, shaved truffle mushroom slices, Beetroot, peanuts, sesame seeds, pomelo, ginger, carrot, red cabbage, crackers, curry leaves and edible flowers. What I love about this Yu Sheng is that is it includes curry leaves to enhance the flavour of the dish. The downside of it is that the combination of usually strong flavours (pomelo and ginger) covered up the taste of truffle mushrooms.

Next, we have the 元素五行湯 5 Elements Soup. This soup was boiled for 5 hours with ingredients such as 竹笙 Bamboo Fungus, 黃木耳 Jelly Fungus, 香菇 Shiitake Mushroom, and 紅棗 Jujube, inside a coconut shell, adding a coconut fragrance to the soup. The coconut flesh comes off smoothly and has that ‘creamy’ flavour to it - definitely my favourite!

The 金蠔菇伴竹炭豆腐 Charcoal Beancurd with Golden Oyster Mushroom dish isn’t vegan as it contains egg. It’s also made with charcoal and soy milk. My friends at the same table love the flavour only that it needs more sauce for it.
For me, I had one with fried silken tofu instead! The sauce went perfectly well with the tofu and asparagus that don’t mind second servings!

We’re served with 幸福蘋果醋 Apple Cider Vinegar right after as a palette cleanser for what comes next.

如意爆竹金絲巢 Firecracker Nest dish is made vegan for everyone at the table. It usually contains milk and eggs. It is Lion’s Mane Mushroom covered in fiery hot red chilli pepper, hence the name ‘Firecracker’.
The spiciness comes with a hint of numbness to it, sort of like 小辣 little spice or 中辣 medium spice for Mala Hotpot. I love this!

常滿紅燒松露蒸飯 Steamed Truffle Rice with Braised Sauce combines truffle flavour with savouriness of the sauce. It’s sort of like steamed glutinous rice but with an extra aromatic flavour that made the dish taste so amazing.

草莓梅子特調 Strawberry with Plum Sauce Drink has mint leaves, and both freeze dried strawberry bits and a fresh strawberry halve as topping. Needs a bit of stir to bring up the sweet plum sauce at the bottom. This was very refreshing.

We end the meal with dessert! The 香椰雪糕紫米粥 Purple Rice Porridge with Coconut Ice Cream was switched to a Coconut Sorbet to accommodate the vegans at the table. With the heaviness in flavour for coconut milk and rice porridge, I say the dessert suits better if it’s with a sorbet rather than ice cream!

Pros: Using ingredients that doesn’t compromise the eart, pleasant dining experience
