Who says health and taste can’t go hand in hand? Sing Yin Cantonese Dining is going to show fans exactly how to strike a balance between nutrition and flavor with its latest 8-dish a la carte menu in September and October, using one of the most versatile vegetables in the world – mushrooms – as its key ingredient.
According to Medical News Today, mushrooms are an excellent source of vitamin D, protein and carbohydrates. Mushrooms have potential anti-cancer properties and low glycemic index which make them a wonderful dietary option for diabetics. They also help in maintaining cholesterol levels and are great for heart health.
With this in mind, W Hong Kong’s Chinese Executive Chef Raymond Wong uses a variety of fungi in 8 new dishes, ranging from mixed boletus to termite mushroom, mix and match them to arrive at something new for you.
The “Braised Sea Cucumber with Termite Mushroom” is an excellent example. Sea cucumbers are known to have anti-aging effects and good for skin. Thus, it becomes a perfect match to the nutritious termite mushroom. To give the entire dish a richer taste, Chef Wong creates a special sauce that requires 2 hours of slow boiling the termite mushroom. It not only makes the mushroom tender and soft, but further enhances the texture of the sea cucumber, producing a lingering and delightful taste.
Another highlight is the “Sautéed Six”, featuring 6 different kinds of mushroom – chanterelle, yellow boletus, red boletus, termite mushroom, catathelasma and Japanese matsutake – all heated and sautéed exquisitely. As each of them has different texture, the combination leaves an unforgettable sensation to the taste buds and provides a perfect textural balance.
Other dishes in this a la carte menu include “Double Boiled Fresh Japanese Matsutake soup with Chinese Cabbage”, “Double Boiled Partridge Soup with Catathelasma”, “Steamed Fillet of Spotted Garoupa with Mixed Bletus”, “Sauteed Scallops with Chanterelle and Milk”, “Sauteed Australian Wagyu Beef ‘Marble Score 8’ with Catathelasma” and “Steamed Mixed Mushrooms Dumplings with Black Truffle”, available from HK$60 to HK$538 per person at lunch or dinner.
