January 14 to February 28
While we can’t have big-group dinners this Chinese New Year, you can still dine with the company of 100,000 marine animals at Resorts World Sentosa’s Aqua Gastronomy. The multi-sensory dining experience, where meals are served in futuristic dining pods that overlook the S.E.A Aquarium’s Open Ocean Habitat, will serve up its Spring Edition from January 14 to February 28. This will also be Aqua Gastronomy’s final run, and your last chance to savour a unique mealtime experience.
In true CNY fashion, the interiors come spruced up with lanterns and festive decor. The five-course menu ($168) features sustainably sourced seafood – with courses paired with light shows and voice-overs. It begins with a dimming of lights, and a deconstructed yusheng drizzled with an orange sauce that glows in the dark. Mains are then served in pairs to signify abundance and prosperity; steamed King prawns, dressed with vermicelli and dragon chives, are served with a side of mini pumpkin bun; barbecued USDA prime rib and salted egg yolk crumble come paired with a comforting bowl of beef consommé with wanton; and toothfish comes with a side of Hong Kong-style steamed rice stuffed with dried scallops and Chinese sausage. Dessert comes in the form of a golden mandarin orange tart sitting atop citrus bak kwa crumble, and crumbly bites of housemade pineapple tarts. And as the meal comes to a close, you’ll want to ready your phones to capture the underwater dragon dance performance. Given the recent tightening of safe distancing measures, this is probably one of the few places you can still catch a glimpse of festive performance this season.
