Since Elyssa is a vegetarian, she decided to try the Impossible Lion’s Head Meatballs.
They also opted for the Sweet Potato Macaron which we have to say may just be the pretties Lunar New Year treat this year!
Let’s start with this sweet treat first!. The Macaron is a beautiful raspberry hue.
The outside was crispy with a soft crunch outside and a softer middle (all the things you’d want from a macaron.)
Inside you’ll find the macaron piped high with sweet potato filling. the buttercream and crème fraiche give it the sweet potato a light sweet taste!
We definitely enjoyed this treat right down to the gold painted strip on the front – So pretty!
Here’s a closer look at the Impossible Lion’s Head Meatballs!
We had some cabbage and spring onions served with ours.
The Shaoxing Wine Reduction gave the whole dish and exotic yet delicious flavor!
We definitely recommend treats served here so pick up those Sip and Savor cards and head over to Red Dragon during your Lunar New Year visit!
