1. Lung King Heen
There’s always an element of excitement when Lung King Heen at Four Seasons unveils its Chinese New Year treats, and this year is no exception. Aside from the ever-popular creations including abalone and turnip pudding with conpoy, Lunar New Year coconut pudding and taro pudding with black truffle, the Michelin-starred restaurant has also launched a new unique flavour this year: water chestnut pudding with camomile tea, which is made with the finest tea leaves from Yú Teahouse for a refreshing aroma.
