My most memorable dinning experience in Xi Yan (Xi Yan 6th Anniversary Dinner)

In the month of October, I was dinning at Xi Yan, This month happen to be Xi Yan 6th Anniversary. Jacky Yu, personally flew in from Hong Kong to introduce his new award-winning creations.

These are the few mouth watering dishes that still linger on my taste buds, long after the experience.

Crispy taro paste with diced abalone, the taste of this dish is traditional but very refine and refreshing.

Angel hair tofu & mushroom soup, this is an award winning dish. The tofu is sliced to the finest of the hair. I can really taste the freshness of soya bean and it melt in my mouth.

Prawn balls in egg white with chinese wine, the freshness of the prawns steams with beaten egg white with a dash of chinese wine to enhance the taste of the dish. This is so tasty

Pagoda dongpo pork with preserved vegetables & mushroom, this is another award winning dish. This dish is artfully presented as a pyramid with a stuffing of preserved vegetables & mushroom.

Last but not least.....dessert

Birds nest egg white custard in coconut juice. Ladies' all time favourite.

I'm so looking forward to my next dinning in Xi Yan.

Lunch in a gallery

Xi Yan prides itself for its private dining concept. One sitting policy for both lunch and dinner. Reservations only. Contemporary Chinese cuisine with an emphasis on creativity was key. Menu is carefully crafted by the chef and changes on a weekly basis. Was here for lunch on 23 April 2011.

Chinese private dining.

Frequented by some of Singapore's social movers and shakers (as well as the epicurally discerning), Xi Yan is the kind of place you would go to celebrate an important occasion, impress a romantic date or wine and dine a client. The cuisine is fundamentally modern Chinese, but brings together the

Delicious home-style Private Dining

Setting was more casual than I expected given

the “private dining” tag, cosy dining room although could get a little rowdy if

there are big groups. Service was equally casual, and a little unpolished

(banging of dishes on tables etc) – though the Filipino waitstaff tried hard.
