Racines (Sofitel Singapore City Centre, Tel: 6428-5000) is having an impressive first Chinese New Year.
There are two standouts: The Treasure Pot ($198, good for six to eight people) and the slow-cooked French corn-fed chicken (only available with the set menu, from $780 a table).
The Treasure Pot is laden with ingredients such as abalone, Hokkaido scallop and roasted French duck breast, simmering in an umami brown sauce. It is also available for takeaway.
The chicken is the opposite – it is light, tender, aromatic and makes a pretty Instagram post.
