1. 烧味双拼盘 Barbecue Combination Platter (two types)
A Canto dining experience wouldn’t be complete without roast meats on your plate. Yàn will spoil you with their wide array of juicy and flavourful roasted delights, which are all prepared Hong Kong-style, with slightly fatty meat that is juicy and tender.
The restaurant also serves up glistening roast meats to sink your teeth into, such as honey pork, Peking duck, crispy chicken, roast duck, pork belly, and soya chicken. Instead of having to pick and choose, Yàn made it easier for you to enjoy all these crowd-favourites by combining them all in one scrumptious platter.
2. 鸳鸯虾球(千岛拼曰式芥茉) Prawns cooked in Dual Style Deep-fried with Thousand Island Sauce and Wasabi-mayo
We don’t know about you, but when it comes to picking a condiment for crispy buttered prawns, we’re always torn between wasabi-mayo and thousand island sauce. Why decide when you can have them both? Get the best of both worlds with this dish that comes with both sauces. This famous dish is also cooked in two styles which makes it even more special. It’s a seafood lover’s dream indeed.

3. 千页豆腐 Steamed Thousand Layer Beancurd with Diced Honey-glazed Pork, Conpoy, Mushroom and Gingko Nuts
Precision and artistry come into play in the making of this dish. Beancurd is sliced into thin sheets and carefully topped with a light brown sauce to create an infusion of Cantonese flavours. When you eat everything together, you get a burst of flavours that complement the beancurd without overpowering it.
4. 极品酱鲜菌焖面卜 Braised ‘Mee Po’ with Fresh Mushroom and X.O. Sauce
One of the must-try dishes in the menu, this dish brings together fresh mushrooms, seasonal greens and springy homemade noodles in a delightful culinary symphony. The noodles are then drizzled with the restaurant’s signature X.O sauce that is made with a medley of prawn roe, salted fish, and dry-cured Jinhua ham. With so much goodness on a plate, it will be hard for mum to find fault with this dish.
So, If you are looking at traditional Chinese fare that will be a big hit for mum, look no further than Yàn.
