Shang Palace casts black garlic magic
Have you ever tried black garlic? Known for its concentrated, sweet and smoky flavours, the prized garlic is believed to have twice as much antioxidant as white garlic.
To savour this prized ingredient, head down to Shang Palace at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore this March. Master Chef Steven Ng has created special dishes to capitalise on the distinctive flavour and aroma of black garlic. The promotional black garlic dishes are available in à la carte and set menus from 1 to 31 March 2014.
Master Chef Steven Ng pairs the prized black garlic with familiar ingredients like kampong chicken and premium seafood, such as lobster, scallop and fresh abalone. The nourishing Braised Lobster, Prawn, Black Garlic and Leek Thick Soup is a comforting dish for the belly. Fans of the crustacean will not wish to give Steamed Lobster with Black Garlic Sauce (see main photo above) a miss. Chef Steven also gives the usual rice staple a twist with Fragrant Fried Rice, Scallop, Black Garlic and Salted Egg Yolk. End your meal on a sweet note with Almond Pudding enhanced with a hint of black garlic.
The Black Garlic six-course set menu is priced at $118 per person. À la carte dishes start from $12 per portion.
