Mothers across the country have longstanding crushes on him. Fathers everywhere would passionately quote the King of Gambling whilst playing cards over the New Year. If your parents are big fans of actor Li Nanxing, then there may be no better way to celebrate Mother’s and Father’s Day 2021 than to savour dishes created in collaboration with the man himself.
White Restaurant has collaborated with actor Li Nanxing to create a Parent’s Day menu featuring the LNX Dried Scallop Hae Bee Hiam, a spicy condiment made using Li Nanxing’s family heirloom recipe. The four hae bee hiam-infused dishes are available at all White Restaurant outlets from 27 April to 26 July 2021.
The highlight of this special menu is the Dried Scallop Hae Bee Hiam XO White Beehoon ($10.80++). This spicier rendition of White Restaurant’s signature dish features a mix of dried scallops, prawn, squid and hae bee hiam for a muskier flavour. A dash of XO sauce, made in-house, is also added to the dish. If Mum or Dad enjoys White Restaurant’s famed seafood white beehoon, but likes bolder, spicier flavours, they will find much to love here.
The other three dishes in the Parent’s Day menu are the Homemade Soy Tofu with Dried Scallop Hae Bee Hiam Minced Pork ($13.80++), the French Beans with Dried Scallop Hae Bee Hiam Minced Pork ($14.80++), and the Stir-fried Prawns with Dried Scallop Hae Bee Hiam ($20.80++).
Of the three, the Homemade Soy Tofu with Dried Scallop Hae Bee Hiam Minced Pork was our favourite. The fried soy tofu, which was already tasty on its own, made for a perfect pairing with the minced meat and mushroom topping. We loved how the hae bee biam added a nice, bold flavour and just the right amount of spice to the topping.
Li Nanxing is not the only celebrity to collaborate with White Restaurant this season. You can also try soothing teas from Teabrary, a specialty tea brand founded by actress and TV host Vivian Lai. We tried Teabrary’s Osmanthus Oolong ($3.00++ per cup), which was delightfully refreshing, and a great complement to the hae bee hiam dishes.
White Restaurant is offering its Parent’s Day menu items as specialty sets. These Hae Bee Hiam Sets are priced at $58++ for 2 pax; $108++ for 4 pax; $168++ for 6 pax; and $268++ for 8 pax. Each set will come with a serving each of the Dried Scallop Hae Bee Hiam XO plus the other three hae bee hiam dishes, as well as the Signature Meat & Seafood Roll (ngoh hiang), Plum Sauce Duck Confit with Sea Cucumber, drinks, and dessert. Food portions will vary depending on the size of the group.
From now until 20 June 2021, diners who purchase any set meal can also stand a chance to win a complimentary meal worth $268 and a meet-and-greet and photo opportunity with Li Nanxing and Vivian Lai. So if your parents are ardent fans of both celebrities, taking them to White Restaurant for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day this year can indeed be a star-studded treat.
