FARE Cantonese.

AMBIENCE Contemporary chic with dark marble floors and walls, and bronze metal and glass dividers making smaller intimate booth areas.

WHO TO BRING Family, friends and business associates.

COST HK$1,000 for two with a glass of wine.

TURN-ONS The wood fried crispy chicken with Italian black truffle paté is a must-try. The chicken is crispy without being oily and the truffle enhances the flavour of the meat. The half chicken portion is enough for three or four people. It is obvious that the chef uses only the best ingredients from all the dishes we tried, especially the dim sum which is freshly made and is popular with diners. We enjoyed the pork and shrimp dumplings with scallop, Sing Yin signature shrimp dumplings and for those who love mushrooms, a must-try is the steamed bun with mixed mushrooms and black truffle. Another dish not to be missed is the steamed crab claw and egg with Chinese wine, which is soft with delicate flavours. The sautéed Australian wagyu beef, "marbled score 8", with crispy garlic, and braised crispy rice with fresh shrimps in lobster bisque were also a treat. This is one of my favourite Cantonese restaurants in Hong Kong.

TURN-OFFS I am usually too full for dessert when I eat here.

DRINKS Speciality teas and wine pairing.
