The noodles texture was very thin and smooth. Its' goes well with the aromatic sourish-spicy sze chuan gravy. The lobster meat was fresh, firm and chewy.

Braised Dried Treasures Pot with Sea Cucumber and Snake Gourd ((蛇)瓜聚宝) - Zodiac: SNAKE 

With snake gourd like emerald lending appeal to the dried seafood such as the auspicious fish maw, dried oysters, mushroom, sea cucumber and fa cai in a pot, it's a Chinese New Year dish not to be missed.

I guess this dish will be the elderly favourite. Because they have lots of veggie in it and the elderly will tend to have more of it.

Monkey Mushroom with Chinese Spinach (猴头三菇菠菜香) - Zodiac: MONKEY 

A vegetarian dish with a trio monkey mushroom, bailing mushroom and Chinese mushroom, atop a bed of Chinese spinach, makes it a must have dish on the first day of Lunar New Year. 

This dish is full of veggie and mushroom. Mushroom lovers will love it. An healthy and hearty dish to go along with your Lunar New Year meal.

Rock Salt Baked Chicken Thigh - Zodiac: ROOSTER 

With dang gui and Chinese wine, this rock sea salt baked chicken thigh is not only rich in oriental touch but signifies or affinity of bringing people together. 

My favourite Lunar New Year dish among all. The chicken was soft, tender and aromatic. The chicken was well soaked with the dang gui and chinese wine fragrance. I can simply have this everyday. 

Wolfverry Drunken Herbal Chicken - Zodiac: DOG 

With dang gui, Chinese angelica root and Chinese wine, the dish is given a nutritious boost with a generous aprinkling of wolfberries and embellished with ginger and spring onion.
