Circuit Breaker Takeaway: Yàn Cantonese Cuisine

By Saturday, May 30, 2020 , , , ,

Hi guys, hope you are well! Sorry for the lack of updates. The Circuit Breaker in Singapore has kept me very busy at work in fact and i resorted to updating more on IG @msskinnyfat instead. If you wanna stay connected with me, hop over to the other side to check out the meals i've been whipping up or work out with me! 

I was hoping that things would go back to normal soon but it'll be awhile before we can start dining out. I don't enjoy takeouts as much since the experience is very much diminished but i guess we all need something to look forward to and food is a way to maintain that normalcy. So i'm back to sharing here again but in a shorter form since things can get cray at work. 
Anyhow, here are some bentos from Yàn, a restaurant that i frequented. When it comes to takeaways, i enjoy variety and these are great for individual diners. There are 4 bentos to pick from and they are a steal at only $10.80. Plus you get a 20% discount if you pick it up yourself.   
My favorite is the Set A, which consists of Pan-Fried Carrot Cake with XO Sauce and  Chinese sausage; Honey Glazed BBQ Char Siew; Deep Fried Prawn Dumpling with Mayonnaise (2 pcs); and Mushroom with Broccoli. This bento holds up even with cross island travel and it also keeps well overnight in the fridge. I would know because i ordered an extra set to keep for lunch the next day. 
Set B is the Signature Roasted Duck set, with Steamed Fresh Prawn Dumplings and Deep Fried Beancurd Sheet with Shrimps and Chives; Sautéed Sliced Heura Chicken with Black Fungus and Luffa; Classic Fried Rice with Egg and Ginger. The dimsum were plump and juicy but the roast duck was unfortunately dry and on the boney side. Jr and i disliked the mock chicken meat which was rubbery and artificial.
Set C is the Fish Fillet with Seven Spices with stewed Crabmeat Vermicelli with Pumpkin Puree; Handmade Pork and Prawn Siew Mai with Fish Roe (2 pcs); Sauteed Kai Lan with Diced Garlic. This is also a decent option. The vermicelli soaked up the sweet crustacean flavors while travelling home and Yàn dimsum is really good. I would suggest ordering that for takeaways. Jr thought the fish was meh with a muddy taste to it. 

Set meals, a la carte, dimsum and now rice dumplings are available on Yàn's estore ( Free delivery above $80.
