Lotus Leaf Rice
What better way to start the Lunar New Years with good food and blessings for you and your loved ones. This Lotus Leaf Rice – 荷叶饭 is an auspicious dish to be eaten at your reunion dinner.
The reunion dinner symbolises the gesture of appreciation and to celebrate the coming of a brand new year together as a family. Unlike the usual family gatherings, we prepare many delicacies as part of the celebration.
Irresistibly wonderful aromas of umami flavours with the sweet scent of the lotus leaves. Sealed within these humble pieces of leaves is a treasure trove of flavours, waiting to be uncovered by you and your family.
From The Meatmen, wishing everybody an Advanced HUAT HUAT Happy Chinese New Year! 🙂
