It was really my honor to represent everdayfoodilove.co to 5SEN5ES to energize five of my sense in just a short food tasting review. First of all, we started with the sen5e of Sight.
Peking duck is one of the most famous dishes from Beijing. The duck is traditionally carved in front of the diners and served in a few steps.They serve with Momo skin, spring onion, cucumber sticks and delicate Hoi sin sauce.
This is utterly fan-ta-bu-lous!
Famous Hong Kong Hand Roulade, Wasabi Lotion Glaze
Severe heat and pan- seared cooking technique lead to the ultimate dining experience with this dish of juicy honeyed prawns and fresh enoki mushrooms.
In Imperial Chinese cuisine, nutrition is the priority. Five Sen5es chefs have created a delicious Imperial broth which includes French Morel mushrooms and vegetables which gives the dish earthy aromas and serve it with an Australian scallop wanton which adds rich flavour and elegance.
What I like the most is the blindfolded part when you sample this. We were all required to be blindfolded before entering the room, that's hilarious when you're blindfold, you don't even know where is your mouth and nose, you can easily get choked because you accidentally feed your nose with the soup. HAHA! I like this though, it really makes you think, it triggers your sense to maximize it's ability to identify which and what flavor is that.
Australian scallop wanton
With its delicate taste, aroma and smooth texture, truffle oil makes a perfect companion to the rich, wok-fried seafood and silken egg white and the combination with the crispy crème brûlée makes for a beautiful and delicious composition.It’s also a healthy, appetizing starter that is full of nutrients. I am madly addicted to the fried scallop with egg whites. It was still semi-runny, which means the egg whites were not overdone. Silky smooth and supple with the kick of truffle oil pungency in every single mouthful accompanied with the crispy buttery pastry.
Crispy Fried Fresh Durians.It's either you hate it or love it. There is no in between. I popped several pipping Durian spring rolls in my mouth, but still begging for more. The contrasting texture of the crunchy skin, and bursting-smooth-aromatic durian flesh spurt out in the mouth when both upper and lower layers of teeth exerted force on this tiny little parcel. That. ugh. feeling. is. so. implausible.
The braised pig’s ear is served simply, yet is deliciously pleasurable with its soft and gelatinous textures. The soy braising essence delivers you delicious aromatics and the Chinese braising spices offer a lightly savoury and slightly sweet element at the same time.
