Notably the dishes at Zuan Yuan are a mix of Teochew and Cantonese. A sneak peak of some the yummy dishes from the festive menu:

Yee Sang with Soft Shell Crab and Condiments
Must say that I love the tasty sweetness of the soft shell crab that added character to the yee sang.
So good that cutie pie Ethan was having a lovely time eating every bit of soft shell crab that he could find on the yee sang platter.

Braised Shark’s Fin Soup with Dried Scallop, Fish Lips and Crab Meat. 
You can opt to omit the shark's fin too! Just inform the waitress at the point of ordering your meal.

Zuan Yuan Crispy Roasted Duck
Succulent flesh and tasty skin that is simply irresistible. In fact this duck received top points from my Teochew dining companions!

Steamed Star Garouper with Mandarin Orange Skin and Fresh Bean Curd
My fave dish. Perfectly steamed fish with a beautiful superior sauce that would be lovely with a bowl of white rice.

Wok Fried Tiger Prawn with Oats and Chilli
A lil spicy with the natural sweetness of oats and prawn makes this a lovely dish to eat with your hands.

Braised Abalone with Dried Oyster and Sea Moss in ‘Golden’ Bag
A very auspicious dish that will certainly score high points with the older folks. The lil parcels of beancurd skin contains a vegetarian mix of different mushrooms.

Steamed Lotus Leaf Rice with Assorted Preserved Meat, Chicken Sausage and Yam
Pork free but the assorted preserved meat made this absolutely delicious. It helps that this is long grain rice making it absolutely delectable unlike the usual glutinous rice that many places serve. 

Chilled Soy Bean with Sea Coconut, Lotus Seed and Black Pearl
So good that I had 2 servings despite my cough:D

Pan Fried ‘Nian Gao’ with Cheddar Cheese
Home made nian gao. Not too sweet. The cheddar cheese part was a hit and miss with some of my dining partners.
