Chinese New Year: TAO Seafood Asia’s Yaorawat Creations
And specially for this coming Lunar New Year, it serves some of the CNY classics with a Yaorawat spin to usher in the year of the goat.
There was nothing but praises from everyone upon first bite. Each fish skin fried to golden brown was coated uniformly with salted egg sauce. A simple dish executed perfectly. I guess this phrase is most apt than anything in describing this dish: The simplest things in life gives the greatest pleasures!

Yaorawat Pen Cai – What sets Tao’s Pen Cai to be different from others is the thick gravy soup and its spongy Thai fish maw all the way from Yaorawat. Personally, the premium sea cucumber is worth a mention as it was so soft and succulent, soaked of the noble gravy. Not to be forgotten is the housemade Tao’s special green chilli blend that seems to go so well with the Pen Cai and even all other dishes. This special Yaorawat-style green chilli unparalleled spiciness would probably bring out the spice girl in you but its oh-so-addictive that you would not stop dipping the fish maw or roasted pork in it despite the burning sensation you would feel on your tongue!
This is priced at $318++ for 6 guests and $488+ for 10 guests and 2 day advance reservation is required.

TAO Thai-Teochew Curry Crab – Definitely not to be missed. It was not spicy, more of leaning towards the sweeter side and the curry sauce was very fragrant, enhancing the freshness of the wok-fried crab. And, it goes super well with fried mantous. How could anyone resist this dish right! The crabs each at least weighing a heft kilogram was simmered over slow fire and doused in the curry potion which the chef concocted. Not to forget, the green chilli blend goes on well with the crab to escalate the spicy level for spicy lovers!
This is priced at $6++ per 100 grams.
