Dragon Indulgence 

Dragon is a symbol of power, honor and prosperity beloved by the Chinese for millennia—a fact that makes the Year of the Dragon extra special.

No Chinese New Year is complete without an extraordinarily sumptuous feast, and The Ritz-Carlton, Macau’s Chinese fine dining establishment, Lai Heen, has the ultimate Chinese gastronomy experience. The Chinese New Year Lunch features some of the Michelin-star restaurant’s greatest hits, crafted with innovative techniques and luxurious ingredients. Highlights include the Double-boiled French Francolin Soup, the Sautéed Tiger Prawn with Asparagus and Termite Mushroom, and a CNY staple—the Fried Glutinous Rice with Air-dried Sausage, Conpoy and Taro.


Meanwhile, the Chinese New Year Dinner promises a full-out celebration underpinned by a delicious blend of traditional influence with modern sensibility. The eight-course meal is a culinary tour-de-force packed with prized delicacies, starting with a trio of appetizers such as the Crispy Crab Meat Stuffed with Crab Coral Parcel. They are followed by a string of masterfully prepared plates including the Braised Whole Abalone with Foie Gras and Morel Mushroom, the Wok-fried Prawns with Green Vegetables and Sun-dried Shrimp in XO Chili Sauce, and the Pan-seared French Quail Breast with Pearl Onion in Cognac Sauce. Finally, the Sweetened Red Bean Cream with tangerine peel, lotus seeds and lily bulbs and the Deep-fried Glutinous Rice Ball bring on the tradition and nostalgia for a sweet coda.

While popular all year round, dim sum plays a particularly important role on the holiday table. This Chinese New Year, Lai Heen is introducing the Good Fortune Dim Sim menu, which boasts an array of delectable and auspicious morsels from the Signature Lobster Dumpling with Shrimp Mousse and the Pan-seared Fish Mousse Cake, to the Pan-fried Glutinous Rice Pudding with Red Date Purée and Ginger Juice. 

For those looking for the perfect Chinese New Year gift, the Rice Pudding Treasure Box would be a great choice. The limited-edition gift box contains Traditional Glutinous Rice Pudding and XO Sauce Turnip Cake wrapped up in stunningly beautiful packaging.
