Bakerzin SG All-NEW CNY Set Menu 2015

If you are looking for a delicious place to soak in the Chinese New Year atmosphere without spending a bomb and going through the tedious multi-course meals at typical Chinese restaurants, check out Bakerzin's newly launched CNY set menu featuring one appetizer and one main course for just $18.80++!! 
Available at all 10 outlets except the one at Terminal One from 5 Feb to 5 March 2015, the ALL-DAY menu offers 2 choices of appetizers and 2 mains for diners to pick from. Every set comes with a complimentary iced lemon tea

One of the appetizers is the trio of pan-seared Prosperity Prawns that sat atop some I sweet and tangy carrot green papaya pickles. These crunchy pickles complemented the stout reduction sauce and kumquat marmalade dressing to turn this into a refreshing dish that tasted surprisingly like Lo-Hei (CNY tossed raw fish salad)! 
The Opulent Salmon veers more towards the classic western canapé of pairing smoked salmon with dill cream. What makes this dish unique is the homemade bread at the base that is studded either with cranberries or walnuts.
Treasure Chicken 
Bakerzin's take on the classic oven-roasted Chicken Roulade compromises nothing in taste with a superbly fragrant glutinous rice with dried shrimps, diced mushrooms and Macadamia nuts. It was an ingenious move to coat every single grain in marmite sauce, which evoked nostalgic tastes of traditional glutinous rice with simple dark soy sauce. 
It was love at first taste when I encountered the sharp spicy kick from the chilli padi in my favourite Hakka dish. Tossed in Shitake mushrooms, lotus root, dried shrimps and chili padi, the Fortune Yam is an interesting colour combination of white and purple yam balls. Some felt that it could be chewier but I thought it needed more yam. Nonetheless, the tantalizing aroma created a nice aura that encourages one to dig in continuously. 
There is no CNY dessert but Bakerzin CNY tarts and cookies would satisfy that itching sweet cravings. Voted as one of the top 3 Pineapple Tarts in SG during a blind tasting test conducted by the Straits Times, the Classic Yuan Bao Pineapple Tarts (21pcs/box for $23.80+) was soft, buttery and not too dry. For that spark of light citrus acidity, try the new Golden Leaf Orange Pineapple Tarts (21pcs/box for $23.80+) whose fillings are bumped up with orange zest. I prefer the Classic Yuan Bao as it has a better pastry to filling ratio and is less sweet. 
Good Luck Cookies Galore (Cashew Nut/Coconut Macademia/Coffee/Green Tea/Ginger/Pistachio & Cranberry Chocolate Chips) 
This season, Bakerzin has also launched 5 new flavours on top of the all time favourite Pistachio & Cranberry Chocolate Chips. My favourites were the delicate and fragrant Coconut Macademia nuts as well as the zippy Ginger Cookies filled with candied ginger and lemon zest. The assorted crunchy nibbles are sold in a box of 30 pcs at $21.80++ and each piece is individually wrapped to ensure freshness. 

Instead of the usual 8-treasure confectionary gummy box, why not get all 8 types of cookies and plate up your own 8-treasure cookie box to for your guests this year?
