Still looking for a place to gather for a reunion dinner with your family and friends? Well, look no further with QuintESSENCE of festive buffet lunch and dinner treats at STREET 50 Restaurant & Bar located at Bay Hotel Singapore! 

This year, Chef Ricky at Street 50 Restaurant & Bar has also collaborated with Brands Essence of Chicken to come up with a series of a la carte buffet and hotpot buffet dishes. Best part? They are even utilising the chicken essence in their hot pot broth and Yu Sheng - which are limited edition items by the way! Between 5 and 21 February 2016, you can also stand to win five $200 BRAND’S® Hampers when you dine at the restaurant!

Here's a view of their buffet spread! 










Other than hot pot ingredients, they also have spring rolls, Peking duck wrap and also an array of fresh seafood for you to choose from! You can also opt for their series of Brands Essence of Chicken a la carte menu dishes that I will be introducing below! 




Essence of 8 Treasures Platter

The Essence of 8 Treasures Platter is essentially a salad of Pacific Clams, Prawns, Smoked Oysters, Sea Asparagus, U.S Asparagus, Black Fungus, “Fatt Choy” and Roasted Pine Nuts with Essence Vinaigrette. Our favourite part of the dishes were definitely the perfectly-cooked fresh prawns used which were exceptionally firm and crunchy! For those of you who were wondering, nope, the dish did not have the fishy aftertaste that you would usually get from drinking chicken essence. Rather, it was really fragrant and this dish really wowed us that night. 


Fortune Chicken with Essence Consomm√© 

The Fortune Chicken with Essence Consomm√© is Street 50 Restaurant & Bar's rendition of herbal chicken soup, prepared with Herbal Chicken steamed with Old Ginger, Chinese Wine, Dried Longans, Red Dates & Chicken Essence. The herbal soup was tantalizing and sweet without any hint of fishiness which was also another winner that night! 


 Sixth Happiness Seabass in Essence

Another wondrous creation using Chinese Essence! The dish was prepared with Steamed Seabass Fillet with Carrots Pearl, Barley, Green Zucchini Pearl, Yellow Zucchini Pearl, White Fungus and Chicken Essence! 


EssenceTIAL Yusheng - Regular $38++ (up to 4 pax), Large $68++ (8 to 10 Pax)

If you were wondering what the black jelly cubes were, they were actually chicken essence cubes! EssenTIAL means none other than To Infinite Abundance and Luck, and EssenceTIAL Yusheng and it comprises of Smoked Salmon Low Hei Salad with specially made BRAND’S® Essence of Chicken Aspic & Vinaigrette! Unfortunately, the EssenTIAL Yu Sheng is not part of the buffet menu but hey, I wouldn't mind paying extra for this since you can rarely find Chicken Essence Yu Sheng anywhere else! 






Tossing to a year of good fortune in the Year of the Fire Money! 


Seventh Heaven Crabmeat Noodles in Essence Stew 

The last a la carte dish we tried was the Seventh Heaven Crabmeat Noodles in Essence Stew, made with Crisp Hong Kong Noodle with Yellow Chives, Mushroom, Crabmeat, Chinese Mushroom & Lily Bulb in Essence Stew. Though we had this dish nearing the end of the meal, we were surprised that we could still chomp it down since it wasn't as cloying as the Yee Mian noodles that we usually find at zi char stalls. Rather, the sauce used for this was rather light and not overly gooey. 



As previously mentioned, specially for Chinese New Year, Street 50 Restaurant and Bar will be introducing the healthful BRAND’S® Essence of Chicken broth, which is the latest addition to three lovingly prepared choices of soup bases – Imperial Chicken Broth, Siamese Luck Tom Yum Broth and Indonesian Bakso Broth. 

The hotpot is served up in individual, Chinoiserie chic pots with customized designs of propitious dragons. The hot pot buffet menu boasts a mouth-watering ensemble of about 50 ingredients from unlimited servings of healthy greens to fried specialities and premium platters of fresh seafood to delicious meats with over 50 ingredients to choose from! Some special highlights include Red Grouper fillets, white clams, sliced squid, Canadian scallops, flower crabs and red prawns! There's definitely something for everyone there! 


Last but not least, we were also treated to the traditional Chinese Cheng Teng dessert at the end of the meal, and no, there was no Essence of Chicken infused in this hahaha because it'll taste reaaaally weird.
