Celebrating Our Roots
Teochew cuisine is well known for its use of fresh and quality ingredients to emphasise natural flavours. At The China Club, we have prepared a special Teochew menu just for this quarter.
Our 6-course Teochew set celebrates this tradition with a line- up of exquisite offerings, including a gourmet platter with a trio of chilled lobster, shrimp dumpling and soy- brined duck. Other highlights include Braised Fish Maw & Crabmeat Soup with Chrysanthemum, Steamed Cod Fillet with Plum Sauce, and Oyster Omelette with Picked Radish & Chives. The traditional and much loved orh nee will also be served for dessert.
In September, grab your lanterns and gather your loved ones for a night under the full moon to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival. It is said that the moon is the brightest and roundest on this day, symbolising a time of thanksgiving and reunion with your families. Our special dessert menu featuring Sweetened Peach Tree Sap with Green Apple and Snow Fungus, Aloe Vera Cream with Longan & Ginseng, and Deep-fried Sweet Potato & Egg Custard Dumpling will be the perfect accompaniment to your sweet reunions.
In Chinese, there is an idiom 饮水思源 which means to remember where your blessings come from. It also means, in a literal sense, to remember the origins of your water when you drink it. In that spirit, we have included a fun fact about Singapore’s first water source at the back of this newsletter. But more importantly, in the midst of celebrating our roots, let us also approach this season with a heart of gratitude for all that has been given to us and our families.
