For intimate dinner dates, a second-floor dining room is a chic setting in which to further explore Lychee’s mouthwatering menu. Slow-braised in master stock – a secret blend of more than 20 spices and herbs – sliced beef tongue is accentuated with flavors of pickled apple and Sichuan chilli, and a nod to a much-loved staple of many a Chinese home. Elsewhere, a salad of picked roast duck, spiked with birds-eye chillies, julienned ginger, Sichuan flavors, and signature lychees is a hands-down highlight. From the sea, mussels cooked in a Thai-inspired coconut cream reveals an underlying punch of chilli jam; while a melt-in-the-mouth tuna tartare on avocado puree is a taste revelation!
