Staying true to the philosophy of "optimal ingredients with original taste", our chefs seek out the finest ingredients, and employ creative cooking techniques to provide foodies with fresh seasonal recipes. We invite you to pamper your palate in a stylish and luxurious urban environment.
Mr. Lucas Li, hails from Zhaoqing, Guangdong, and boasts 16 years of experience in the catering industry. He has worked at several renowned Cantonese restaurants and international luxury hotels, whilst serving as the deputy secretary-general of the Catering Branch, Sichuan Travel Agency Association. Chef Lucas is skilled at crafting carefully selected ingredients in ingenious ways, and presenting dishes that preserve their original flavour. Thanks to his efforts, Yue Hin maintains a high standard of food and service. Over the years, it has gained a good reputation amongst gourmets, and has become one of the most popular Cantonese restaurants in Chengdu.
QING YUAN CHICKEN
Yue Hin selects Qingyuan chickens exclusive to Qingyuan City, Guangdong Province. Qingyuan chickens are raised in a free-range and slow-growing manner in an ecological environment with fresh water, natural diet and native vegetation. This way of breeding makes the meat crispy outside and tender inside. Chef Lucas introduces a varied selection of Cantonese flavours by exploiting his seven distinctive cooking methods that involve scallion, salt crust, sesame and sand ginger.
LARGE YELLOW CROAKER
The large yellow croaker is sourced from the sea near Fuding Island, Sanduao, Ningde, Fujian. Yellow croaker, thriving in the sea with strong currents and excellent water quality, features a golden body, red lips and firm flesh, all of which contribute to a lean and tender texture. Chef Lucas makes use of all available cooking methods, either seasoning with XO sauce, or steaming with aged Huadiao wine, tangerine peel, or Parmesan pork, so as to ensure freshness and tenderness to the maximum extent.
DUMPLINGS WITH TRUFFLE & BAMBOO
Made with black truffle sauce from Italy and bamboo fungus from Zhuhai, Yibin in the south of Sichuan, the exquisite recipe contains bamboo fungus indusium, king oyster mushroom, crab-flavoured mushroom, black truffle sauce and Yunnan zucchini. The strong and fresh truffle brings out multiple flavours.
MASHED "LI PU" TARO, PURPLE SWEET POTATO, PUMPKIN AND COCONUT JUICE
Chef Lucas masterfully prepares quintessential landmine desserts with his creative and aesthetic inspirations. Lipu taro and Chongqing purple sweet potato are combined to form gradient layers in the goblet. Their delicate and silky-smooth texture offers sweetness and softness in every bite, bringing aficionados both visual and gustatory pleasure.
