A first-of-its-kind dish in Singapore, the Golden Collagen Treasure Pot with Abalone (from $298) features pumpkin collagen. Pumpkin and chicken are simmered over low heat for over eight hours to produce a moreish supreme stock. Nourishment for the skin, each sip of the stock is packed with a palate-enveloping sweet and savoury note.

5. Kam’s Roast
This is the first time Kam’s Roast is launching a CNY Prosperity Treasure Pot (from $288++) – a collaboration between legendary Chefs Lee Chiang Howe of popular Teochew Huat Kee and Wong Kwan Sang of Kam’s Roast. Enjoy the best of both worlds – Hong Kong-style roasts as well as Teochew-style seafood delicacies in one pot! The pot is beautifully arrayed with luxurious ingredients including Kam’s Roast signature Roast Duck and Roast Pork, Chestnut, Fried Fish Maw, Dried Fish Maw, Shiitake Mushrooms, XL size Dried Oyster, Premium Black Moss and Australian Abalone. The premium golden broth in the Prosperity Treasure Pot is made using a secret recipe which includes pork bones and chicken, boiled for over 16 hours.
Kam’s Roast Prosperity Treasure Pot is available only for takeaway, from $248++.
The wildly popular dish is making a comeback and is now updated with even more premium ingredients! The golden broth for the hot pot is made with a medley of high-grade ingredients: jinhua ham, old hens, chicken feet, pork bones, lean pork, pork trotters, dried scallops and carrots. The soup is brewed for six hours, and during this time all the natural essences and goodness of the ingredients are extracted. Ingredients for the hot pot include wild morel, wild golden fungus, sea cucumber, abalone, scallops, prawns, mushrooms, fish maw and chong cao hua (cordyceps). The wild morel used for the YUN NANS Prosperity Treasure Hot Pot, touted as the king of edible mushrooms, is a delicacy, costing more than S$800 per kg. All the ingredients are cooked and presented in an earthen pot that is specially imported from Yunnan. The porosity and natural insulation properties of the earthenware allows heat and moisture to circulate throughout the pot – this in turn helps to bring out the best flavours of the high-grade ingredients.
