PORK AND GINGER
Pan-fried pork, golden dried scallop
Chef Chan ah Kin gives us a deliciously meaty dish composed of chopped pork belly, mixed with fresh ginger and flavored with soy and oyster sauces, which then is fried atop thin slices of lotus root and served with slivers of golden dry scallop.

TOFU
Seafood lute bean curd
Chef Chan, using soft tofu, showcases its remarkable dairy-like properties, by using it as the binding agent in an Asian equivalent of French quenelles — poached seafood custards — which are then finished in the frying pan. The ocean flavors of fresh scallops and prawns are balanced with the sweetness of corn and the bright green acidity of celery.
