The Stewed Dried Oyster with Sea Cucumber and Black Moss is one of the must-haves for the season, every ingredient for this dish is symbolic. In it, there are dried oysters (ho see in Cantonese) which means good things to come.

The Wok-fried Prawns with Angled Luffa Gourd, Shimeji Mushrooms and Cashew Nuts are a huge staple in Chinese New Year meals; its pronunciation in Cantonese (har) echoes the sound of ringing laughter, which is often associated with happiness and joy.

The Poached White Pomfret with Shredded Chicken and Mushrooms in Spicy Supreme Stock Fish is commonly served as it symbolises surpluses for the new year and abundance. A signature dish, it perfectly combines prized ingredients from both land and sea.
