APPETIZER | Chilled Noodle, Seafood, Sesame Sauce, Chrysanthemum

This creative appetizer fully embraces the scent profile of the chrysanthemum. Floral water extracted by steeping dried chrysanthemums is used to cook the four-colored noodles, which is then chilled and served with seafood and sesame sauce on top, presented on a bed of fresh chrysanthemum petals and drizzled with chrysanthemum floral water. Upon lifting the plate cover, an elegant floral scent and mist pervades, revealing the tasty chilled noodles which are refreshing in both taste and texture. This dish serves as the perfect dreamy prelude to the Chrysanthemum Quintet.

SOUP | Double-boiled Consommé, Bean Curd, Chinese Baby Cabbage

Floral water is extracted from steeping dried chrysanthemums. Mature chicken, brown meat and Chinese baby cabbage are then added to the floral water and stewed to create a consommé enriched with the light fragrance of chrysanthemums, which is then double-boiled into a clear double-boiled consommé using a unique Chinese culinary technique. An expertly cut chrysanthemum-shaped silken bean curd blooms in the soup, making for a highly picturesque masterpiece.

HOT DISH | Wok-fried Saga Wagyu Beef, Deep-fried Whole Chrysanthemum

The Saga Wagyu beef is diced and wok-fried in chrysanthemum oil made from fresh chrysanthemums. The scent of chrysanthemum finely balances the Wagyu beef that is richly marbled with fat. The beef is presented on top of a beautiful deep-fried whole chrysanthemum and served with an appetizing sauce made from homegrown lemon leaves and fresh chrysanthemums, creating a well-layered flavour profile that will tickle your tastebuds.

The wine brings out the essence of the flavour in this highly intricate dish.

DESSERT | Chilled Chrysanthemum Tea Pudding, Imperial Bird’s Nest
