Helmed by Platinum Award Winner Hong Kong Chef Julian Tam, Wo Peng stands at two outlets and they have been dishing out authentic Cantonese cuisine with a touch of modern flair. Chinese New Year is just around the corner and if your family is looking to dine at a Cantonese restaurant, read on to find out what Wo Peng has to offer.

In light of the raw fish issue, fresh sashimi is not employed in this yu sheng. At Wo Peng, you get fish skin and vegetarian salmon.

Sauteed "Peach Resin" with Egg White and Green Vegetables
This was more on the simpler tasting side with very light flavours and a hint of sweetness from the the peach resin.

Double-boiled Superior Chicken Soup with Almond
I was a little put off by the taste of almond in the soup as I really dislike the taste. But the soup does grow on you and I ended up finishing that silky smooth bowl of goodness!

Steamed Wild Cod Fish Fillet
The cod fish was my favourite dish of the night. The freshness and sweetness of the tender cod fish, coupled with a superior soya sauce was simply delightful. The delicious cod fish comes complete with a fried fish head and fish tail.

Wo Peng "Poon Choy"
The mix of whole abalones, prawns, sea cucumber and assorted dried seafood was a tasty one. This is a very common dish that you can find at almost every Chinese restaurant during the Chinese New Year season and it is typically enjoyable, as it is with the one at Wo Peng. Little did we know that Poon Choy was introduced as a New Year delicacy in Singapore by Chef Julian.

Smoked and Roasted Duck with Camphor and Tea Leaves
Duck is always a highlight for me and I was excited to try the one that is cooked over Camphor wood and infused with tea. The thin skin of the whole duck was crisp but I felt that the meat was a tad dry

Wok-fried Glutinous Rice 
Personally, I felt that the rice was somewhat lacking in the fragrance and taste departments even with the addition of Chinese sausages.

Steamed Running Yolk Cream Buns
The warm golden lava flows out beautifully and it's impossible not to love the generous lava to bun ratio. Give me five more please!

Wo Peng has six different Chinese New Year set menus available so do look them up on their website. Prices start at $368 for six people and $598 for 10. They are open through the festive season and there are private rooms to cater to big families.
