1. Ricotta Pancakes from Foragers Table The melt-in-your-mouth, heavenly Orange Blossom Ricotta Pancakes from Foragers Table is the fluffiest, most moist pancakes you will ever taste. Each serving has three stacks of light and velvety pancakes topped with candied orange and fresh strawberries for an addition of fruity and citrusy flavors. The soft ricotta cheese in the pancakes batter produce a unique consistency with moist center. 2. Dim Sum Platter from Hakkasan The signature Hakka Steamed Dim Sum Platter from Hakkasan is unlike any dim sum dishes you will taste in Chinatown. Inside the bamboo steamer is two sets of scallop shumai, har gau, prawn and Chinese chive dumpling, and chicken and corn dumpling. Each dim sum - made using the finest ingredients - is so beautifully executed that a photo snapping is a must before you devour it. 3. Duck Egg and Polenta from La Sirena The hearty Duck Egg and Polenta from La Sirena - the newest culinary opening of legendary duo Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich - is an interesting fusion of coastal Italian cuisine with the American South influence.
