What are the five best things to order at Jin Xuan?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

Executive chef Ooi Soon Lok is a master of classic Cantonese cooking dressed up with a bit of flair. Here are the five best things to order:

1. The duo platter. In the starters section, the duo platter features a piece of umber duck skin, crispy and succulent, placed over a slice of foie gras on one side, and a plate of chilled baby abalone doused in a refreshing orange dressing on the other. The combination of rich and light is the ultimate surf and turf.

2. Jasmine-smoked pork rib. Chef Lok works wonders with this dish — the meat falls silkily from the bone.

3. Black-pepper beef. This stunning version of the dish uses Wagyu beef and the chef’s own house sauce.

4. Signature steamed vegetables. For something healthier, our Forbes Travel Guide editors recommend the signature steamed vegetables — a variety of seasonal mushrooms and greens arranged into a stunning display and covered lightly in reduced chicken broth. 

5. Poached Chinese pear. At the end of the meal, try the poached Chinese pear in lightly sweet tangerine-infused syrup. It’s the perfect way to wind down the evening.
