DB Fortune Package

Apart from Dragon Bowl offering its fortune packages for takeaway to appease your relatives for your reunion dinner or house visits, it is also offering six special Lunar New Year set menus that consists of traditional Chinese food courses that starts from S$388++ to S$1388++ depending on the menu that is selected.

While they are over 20 different types of dishes that are provided, we were given the Prosperity set menu (S$888++) that consisted of six courses that managed to redeem themselves from the previous time we went to try out their Fortune Package at the Aperia Mall outlet that was a little disappointing in terms of seasoning and flavouring.

DB Yu Sheng

Prosperity Abalone Yu Sheng with Fish Roe: It tastes the same as the previous time we tried it, only that this Yusheng was more sweeter and flavourful as compared to the Aperia Mall outlet. Mostly in part due to the sauce and better seasoning compared to the previous Yusheng.

Braised Superior Shark’s Fins with Yunan Ham: The portion of shark fin given to us was rather generous, its waxy and smooth texture paired well with the rich broth to create a harmonious union that will put other competitors’ shark fin soup to shame.

DB Fortune Pot

Dragon Bowl Prosperity Fortune Treasure Pot: The ingredients in the pot looked more fresher and plump and were nicely coated in the sauce. The dish was adequately seasoned and the abalones were easy to chew on- not as hard as rubber.

Steamed Red Garoupa in Hong Kong Style: The clear star of the set menu, the fish was cooked to perfection as the meat came off the bones rather easily and was exceptionally flaky. There was no indication of the fish having that off-putting pungent smell even as we got to the stomach region of the protein. Don’t forget to lather the fish with the soya sauce before eating it and leave the highly coveted cheeks to the elders and any esteemed guests at the dinner table!

Braised E Fu Noodles with Conpoy and Black Truffle Oil: If not for the black truffle oil, the dish would have tasted pretty sub-standard and similar to most noodle dishes in many major chinese restaurants. However with the addition of the black truffle oil, it added a rich kick to the dish and its sure to gratify both the old and young generation’s cravings for a good tasting carb course.

The dessert will be a hit for the older generation with its herbal taste and it is filled with many nutritious ingredients. Overall the taste has a perfect balance of sweetness and just a hint of bitterness because of the herbs used in this dish.

While the six menus may differ or alike in terms of the types of food items that they offer, its up to each individual to choose the menu based on what they prefer to eat or if they decide to treat their family to a more luxurious meal to wish them prosperity and good fortune in 2018. Regardless of their choice, the core principle of a CNY meal is to bring the family back together to catch up and rekindle old family bonds.

The menu items are available from 1st February 2018 to 2nd March 2018 (The Wealth S$388++) set menu is not available on CNY Eve.)

Dragon Bowl is open throughout Chinese New Year. All outlets will be closed on the 1st day of Chinese New Year, 16 February 2018.
