Food Tasting at Jack's Place (Bras Basah Complex) outlet

Together with some of the media and influencers friends, we were invited to do a food tasting at Jack's Place, Bras Basah Complex outlet. As it was during lunch time, I went down to the venue from my office which is just two bus stops away. 

We went over to the long table to start off the session with the traditional tossing of the Lo Hei for prosperity and abundance. The Harvest Toss Seafood Salad was really refreshing and I could taste fruits like Mango, Pomelo and Pineapple. Roasted Sesame Dressing was used instead of the usual Plum Sauce. The flavour blends well overall. 

After the tossing of Lo Hei, we went back to our individual table for the Abundance Set Lunch starting off with the Fish Maw & White Fungus Chicken Broth. It feels kind of interesting to be having this super Chinese style soup instead of the usual mushroom soup at Jack's Place. The soup is really tasty and good.

For my main course, I had the Chicken with Pineapple Marmalade and Yam Basket with Scallop. The Chicken Meat was tender and well seasoned with the sauce. The concept of 'East meets West' is well displayed in this dish with the yam and scallop at the sides. 

 We ended the meal with a slice of osmanthus sponge cake which was nicely decorated with a firecracker imaged on an edible chocolate. Super festive!

Not to be missed during the festive seasons are the Lunar New Year Cookies and Cakes. Traditional ingredients are used for their Hainanese Kaya Roll, Nanyang Kopi Roll, Rainbow Kueh Lapis and the Lychee Pineapple Tarts.  

We got to try some of the Lunar New Year Cookies and Cakes too. I quite like the Lychee Pineapple Tarts which is also their popular items. It's more to the sweet side as the Lychee taste is quite strong. For the cookies, they are the melt-in-your mouth kind. We also tried the Rainbow Kueh Lapis which taste like the normal Kueh Lapis but I find it very unique and makes a great gift. Would have got a box but it was not available at the outlet on the day we went.
