The highlight for me is the Pan-fried Nian Gao, especially that layer of coated peanut and toasted grated coconut which brightens the enjoyment of the glutinous rice flour.
Set meals, a la carte, dimsum and now rice dumplings are available on Yàn's estore (https://www.yan.com.sg/estore). Free delivery above $80.
Yan Restaurant at National Gallery celebrates the joyful reunions with a bounteous spread of six set menus, ranging from $98++ to $198++ per person, with classic Cantonese fare curated by Head Chef Ng Sen Tio.
Pen Cai is one of the must-have dish for Chinese New Year and Yan hearty pen cai price starts from S$280.00++.
I enjoyed the clear flavours of the concentrated broth and always a good choice for a Chinese meal.
Staying true to Yan's ethos of offering a convivial feast of Cantonese flavours for the tummy, eyes and soul, Chef Ng curates a new and refreshed menu.
To commemorate Singapore’s Bicentennial National Day, Yàn has launched an array of 5 dim sum specially for this National Day.
If you like herbal bak kut teh, you will probably like the Steamed Xiao Long Bao with Bak Kut Teh Stock ($5.80 for 4 pieces) too.
One of the must haves at Yàn ought to be the soup.
Overall, if you are on the look out for a CNY venue for CNY reunion dinner and haven't found one yet, I'll recommend Yan because of their delicious yusheng and suckling pig!
Serving authentic Cantonese cuisine presented in an elegant modern setting, Yan Restaurant ‘宴’ entices diners with its exquisite a la carte items and set menus (from $68 per person).
Superior Chicken Broth with Fish Maw. Highly recommend to have this goodness of broth when you dine in at Yan. Tasty and deep flavourful I would say.
Well if you are looking for a place to enjoy some nostalgic Cantonese dishes, or perhaps a restaurant for a small wedding banquet, look no further than Yàn.
Frankly, we have not been a big fan of Yan during our initial visits here. The new chef and his new dishes are convincing us otherwise now. A revisit for his other new dishes and that Steamed Kampong Chicken sounds like an exciting proposition.
Overall I have enjoyed the new dishes on the new menu. I like Chef Lai's new finely executed home-style meals. Indeed he has brought heartwarming dishes to the table and rejuvenated Yan.
Not-to-be-missed is Yan’s signature ‘Shun De Style’ Lo Hei.
Yàn's signature Crispy Suckling Roast Suckling Pig can be enjoyed in three ways.
To usher in the Year of the Dog, Yan (宴) at National Gallery has put together 7 set menus for reunion of all sizes - from the multigenerational to nuclear families to couples.
The set menu is more value for money in my opinion. If you have been itching to get your hands on hairy crab this season, these Dutch ones are worth a try.
