Press Release


New rabbit-inspired reunion dishes and sumptuous seafood fare to usher in the Year of the Royal Rabbit at Szechuan Court (Singapore)
Promising to quell the tiger's roar, the year of the rabbit bodes blessings of peace and harmony, and is an especially auspicious time to renew family ties and strengthen business relations.

Hopping onto the harmonious forecast for this year is Szechuan Court's Head Chef Sebastian Goh, who has specially created two new "bunny-inspired" delicacies to bring together family, friends and associates for hearty reunions this Lunar New Year.
"Lucky Rabbit" Yusheng with Salmon, Tuna, Abalone, Pomegranate, Jackfruit and Beetroot ($188)
Headlining the Lunar New Year celebrations at Szechuan Court is Chef Sebastian's "Lucky Rabbit Yu Sheng", elaborately styled on a platter in the shape of an adorable rabbit, known as one of the luckiest signs in the Chinese zodiac.

This unique creation is not only a delightful sight to behold, but also promises to take your wealth and health to greater heights with every toss and bite.
Traditionally comprising finely-shredded radish, carrots and fish, this festive favourite is given a healthy power-packed twist with the addition of "power fruits" such as pomegranate and beetroot, which are rich sources of antioxidants and cancer fighting agents.

Pomegranate, with its numerous seeds, is a symbol of fruitfulness and fertility in Chinese culture, while its bright red tones add an auspicious touch of colour and tanginess to the dish.

On the other hand, beetroot contains betaine, which is known to significantly lower blood pressure and maintain cardiovascular health, in addition to being rich in Vitamin C, potassium and magnesium.
Spicy Szechuan Heavenly Soup Pot with 18 Treasures and Rabbit Meat (Regular: $198, for 6pax. / Large: $328 for 10pax.) * Option to substitute rabbit meat for chicken meat is also available
Melding Szechuan and Cantonese tradition, Chef Sebastian concocts a spicy rendition of a soup stew abundantly filled with 18 culinary treasures that the whole family can tuck into.

This heartwarming heavenly soup pot brims with premium and freshly-marinated ingredients such as house-smoked abalone, beef tendon, fish belly, fish fillets, fish maw, fish cartilage, shredded fish lips, dried scallops, clam topshell, oysters, meatballs, flower mushroom, chicken mushroom, beancurd and cabbage, simmered in a rich stock and topped with spring onion, chilli and Szechuan peppercorn.
Says Chef Sebastian, "This being the year of the rabbit, I thought that this would be auspicious opportunity to introduce rabbit meat to Chinese diners by adding it into this dish, as rabbit is very seldom featured in Chinese cuisine."
New Lunar New Year Seafood Signatures Other premium highlights from Chef Sebastian's Lunar New Year repertoire include Slow-cooked Marble Goby with Fish Stock and Chinese Herbs ($12/100g), Deep-fried Tiger Prawns tossed with Salted Egg Yolk, Golden Corn and Basil Leaves ($18/100g), and Black Olive Fried Rice served with Braised Black Truffle Oil Lobster ($18/100g).
Lavender Nian Gao ($8 per pc) No Lunar New Year feast would be complete without Nian Gao, or sweet sticky cake, said to bring greater heights of prosperity year after year, as its name implies.

Chef Sebastian has infused the essence of lavender flowers into this time-honoured favourite, with a sprinkling of sliced coconut, creating an exquisite and aromatic dessert.
Lunar New Year Prosperity Set Menus and Promotions Szechuan Court also offers a wide array of Prosperity Set Menus for family reunions, 'lo hei ' luncheons and celebratory feasts.

Priced from $70 to $138 per person, the menus range from 8 to 10 courses and feature sumptuous delicacies such as Truffle-braised Whole 12-head Abalone served with Dried Oyster and Poached Spinach, Double-boiled Fish Cartilage and Fish Belly in Superior Ginseng Chicken Soup, and Slow-cooked Duck with Spices served with Osmanthus-laced Minced Pork stuffed in Thorny Sea Cucumber.
Guests will enjoy a free flow of soft drinks for celebrations comprising 30 guests or more, coupled with a complimentary pair of mandarin oranges for each guest for parties of 60 guests or more.

Guests will also receive a $10 prosperity voucher for every $120 spent from 17 January to 17 February 2011, which is redeemable at Szechuan Court from 18 February to 31 March 2011.
