King oyster mushroom enveloped by a thin slice of cucumber, topped with grated ginger. I have always loved the crunchiness of king oyster mushrooms. I like how they innovate to create dishes that resemble our local food. This was made to taste like steam chicken. What do you think?

Cherry tomato soaked in sour plum sauce, on a bed of Osmanthus Jelly. The cherry tomato was extra juicy having soaked up all the sauce.

Caramelised Monkey Head Mushroom on top of rock sugar which oddly taste like chicken too. I love it!

The firecracker nest was interesting which features a mala spices with fried Monkey Head Mushroom in a Meekia Nest. The mushrooms remind me so much of Popcorn Chicken!

Love the sorbet. It is creamy and has a citrusy tang to it. The kumquat wedge on top has a melt-in-the-mouth texture which was so good!

The last main we had was the Black truffle with mushroom clay pot rice which was jazzed up with truffle resulting in the strong fragrance.

The pudding had a lovely moist texture and goes well with the orange cream sauce that is infused with orange extract.
