Spinning for Good Fortune Dishes --- Sensations

From 1st through 28th February 2013, Sensations is presenting a series of Spinning for Good Fortune Dishes. The chefs have named each dish with lucky meanings to enlighten the guests' New Year spirit.  Available 24 hours daily!

The Roasted Whole Pigeon dish (MOP 68/ per pigeon) is named "Xin Chun Bao Xi", meaning"the arrival of happiness in spring". The chef uses a custom-blended sauce to season a pigeon and leave it to air-dry. Then it is deep-fried to crisp up the skin and preserve the tenderness and juiciness of the meat. The golden brown colour of the dish symbolizes wealth and fortune in Chinese traditions.

Wok-Fried Scallop with Broccoli and Egg White (MOP 88) is named "Hua Kai Fu Gui", which means "fortune will come with blossomed flowers". The Broccoli is shallow-fried briefly to retain its freshness and crunchy texture. Using fresh scallops makes it as a low-fat and high-fiber option for families of all ages during Chinese New Year.

Prawn implies "happiness" in Chinese because of a similar Cantonese pronunciation, so the chef has named Pan-fried King Prawns with Tomato Sauce (MOP 118) as "Haha Da Xiao". The prawns are lightly fried until they turn golden brown, and then are seasoned with a custom-blended sauce and dried onions. The fresh and tasty prawns with colorful ingredients have become one of the best dishes for a family reunion dinner.

Sensations has also prepared Abalone Treasure Tureen to wish its guests a healthy and prosperous year ahead. The Poon Choi contains several precious ingredients including abalone, dried scallops, Ligameti Cervi, sea cucumbers, dried oysters and shrimps.
