Gourmet Takeaway

There are two new food items for take away this year: a healthier version of the traditional nian gao, prepared with cane sugar and mildly tart apricots that cut through the sweetness; and a lo hei platter with salmon roe and air-flown Japanese hamachi — which comes with all the usual accoutrements like shredded yam, carrots, and pickled ginger.

If fish isn’t your speed, the lo hei can also come with Alaskan crab or lobster, with the option of additional toppings like crispy salmon skin, shredded abalone, and Boston lobster meat.

They’ve also kept many of the perennial takeaway favourites, including the savoury radish cake with conpoy and preserved meat; and the lavish Buddha Jumps Over the Wall, which comes  with sizable 3-head abalone.
