With more than 20 years of experience, chef Chai has become one of Malaysia's brightest talents with cooking techniques that have thrilled local business figures and urban celebrities.

The Shima-Aji Sashimi in Cantonese Style is delightfully delicate, tossed in a preparation that evokes yee sang for all seasons. The sashimi is buttery and lusciously tender, its clean flavours enlivened by a wealth of herbs, seeds and nuts for beautifully balanced flavours and textures.

This is a brilliant rendition of raw top-tier fish, deepened with soy sauce and duetting with delightful vegetables, demonstrating how sashimi can be equally excellent in Cantonese cuisine as it is in Japanese gastronomy.

Chef Tsang seizes the spotlight for the Double-boiled Chicken Broth in Winter Melon Cup.

This is a revival of a revered Cantonese recipe that has nearly been forgotten. It contains a variety of winter melon available only during selected seasons in China. The winter melon is first fried, then slow-simmered in chicken broth, brimming with grouper roe and seafood.

This is a soulful soup that's surprisingly rich and robust, laced with premium fish that lends a lovely umami to the chicken broth, gently sweet and earthy with winter melon. It's a bowl of nourishment that warms the heart and soothes the spirit.

Braised Hong Kong Goose with Plum and Yam is a highlight of this night.

This is a must-try, meticulously prepared in traditional fashion, slow-cooked in a claypot till triumphantly tender, evoking a sense of decades-old nostalgia.

The goose is supremely succulent, brightened with a buoyant plum sauce that's multifaceted with chillies, onions, garlic, ginger, spring onions and goose oil. Poultry at its peak, illustrating how goose ranks as one of Hong Kong's most spectacular specialities.

Stuffed House Special Abalone with Village Chicken brings together sea and land in hearty harmony, served strikingly in fiery foil that harbours tender meat paired with plump abalone, encapsulating the essence of time-honoured, generations-nurtured cooking.

Fun fact: This dish fuses together the popular Herbal Chicken and Prosperity Chicken, innovatively enhanced with abalone and dried scallops.

For a decadent savoury finish, the Steamed Glutinous Rice with Lobster and Truffle is amazingly aromatic, loaded with luscious lobster meat to infuse a full-bodied chew to the supple, stretchy rice.

This is another magically mouthwatering twist, using glutinous rice instead of conventional noodles.
