Now serving pork, and aside from a comprehensive a la carte menu, Five Sen5es features a different bill of fare every season specifically designed to stimulate each of our senses.
Our Autumn sensory excursion took us on a voyage of Taste with Secret Double Boiled Tau Fu Fa. Chef’s secret clear broth steaming with soft bean curd carved in the shape of a chrysanthemum flower arrived with three types of mushrooms on the side. Morel, shimeji and enoki mushrooms, each added a spoon at a time, provided a central theme escorted by an elevation in intensity with the inclusion of each.

sense of smell
A bountiful basket of Signature Thousand Threaded Lion Head Prawns stimulated the sense of Touch. Taken with special cold metal chopsticks, the hot succulent prawns were a direct contrast to the cool steel, eating utensils. A wasabi mayonnaise contributed further invigoration with its sinus clearing strength.
We heard the next dish before we saw it. Featuring the sense of Hearing, House Fried Crispy Pork Intestines Hong Kong Style came inside a wind up music box! The impact of teeth biting into the crunchy fried rolls also sent a crackle up to our ears. Chef’s secret recipe plum sauce and shredded salad leaves were afterthoughts on the side. Although this dish was the least appealing to my taste buds, it was the most intriguing generating childhood nostalgia of a less hurried life and the wonder that such simple things as a music box could bring.
Dessert, Home Made Silken Tau Fu Fa Golden Corn Oat Glaze, engaged the sense of Sight and was presented in numerous stages. First a creamy sauce was poured over an oat glaze into a martini glass forming a snow white cone. A colour and shape dimension slid in with a spoon of round yellow corn kernels and black dots of basil seeds. Finally the vase was crossed with a stick threaded with mint and a blueberry.
