CNY Yee Sang Menu @ Park Royal Kuala Lumpur

Celebrating the prosperous Year of Horse at the award-winning Chinese restaurant at Park Royal Hotel Kuala Lumpur, this year Si Chuan Dou Hua offers 6 set menus for table of 2,4, 6 or 10.

As an early celebration for this festive season, Si Chuan Dou Hua prepared us a memorable dinner at one of their private dining rooms, putting together a bountiful feast of symbolic dishes expertly crafted by a team of talented chefs led by Chinese Sous Chef Sim Nin Looi.

Dining with a dash of drama is enjoyable. If you're lucky, you'd be delighted with the fine art of serving tea with metre-long spout kettle. I wonder how the tea master does that!

Signature Eight Treasure Tea

#1 Tropical Fruits Yee Sang

Yee Sang delights are available as early as 2 weeks before Chinese New Year. Toss to prosperity with the refreshing Tropical Fruits Yee Sang, which is colorful with kiwi, dragon fruit, strawberry, mango, apple and pomelo. Yee Sang comes in various side orders including Abalone, Shark's Fin, Jellyfish, Pacific Clam, Scallop Skirt, Tuna, Salmon, Soft Shell Crab, etc) that are available for both dine-in and take-away. 

This year, unlike many Yee Sang out there, here you can choose your favourite specially concocted Sour Plum Sauce! You can choose among sour plum sauce enhanced with fruity flavour, spicy plum sauce with mango or back-to-basic traditional sour plum sauce. Each type is distinctive in flavour, definitely leaving a memorable taste on the palate.

The setting of the restaurant focused on a contemporary approach, yet keeping its Chinese essence. If you plan to try more than just the Chinese New Year item, I'd recommend some dim sum and Szechuan dishes! 

#2 Braised Coral Shark's Fin with Crab Meat, Bamboo Piths and Dry Scallop

Next up was a hearty shark's fin soup with loads of oceanic goodness in it. The nutritious soup, which was slow-boiled into thick consistency, had generous amount of dried scallops in it. Simply satisfying!

#3 Deep-fried Cod Fish with Pomelo Sauce

The fish came with a very crispy skin and was not ladened with too much oil. Pomelo sauce was a welcome change from the usual soy sauce, leading to a refreshing taste on the fresh oceanic piece. 

#4 Traditional Chef's Specialty Smoked Farm Chicken

New item on the menu, the smoked farm chicken exuded heavy smokiness upon being served hot from the kitchen. Thinking that the smell was too pungent, I was surprised that the chicken tasted extremely good! Fluffy and sweet on the flesh, it would appeal to fans of this particular poultry.

#5 Sauteed Fresh Water Prawns with Butter and Corn Flakes

Another notable dish was the butter milk prawns that had been deep-fried to bouncy, fragrant perfection. The corn flakes, which were finely grounded for the prawn coating, gave the fresh prawns a more crispy bite.

#6 Braised Sea Cucumber, Black Mushroom, Dried Oyster and Black Moss with Greens

Also served during the meal was the symbolic dish of wealth and prosperity. It seems like a must-have item in every Chinese New Year set menu, therefore I have no complaints for this.



#7 Sichuan Dan Dan Noodles with Scallop

For those who do not enjoy rice as their staple, you may opt for the individual portion of the signature Szechuan Dan Dan noodles crowned with minced meat, vege and large piece of scallop. The soup was more savoury and spicy, so don't be deceived by the name of the dish!


#8 Steamed “Nian Gao" with Coconut Flakes

Putting a sweet endnote to the sumptuous dinner, one could devour the thinly sliced steamed glutinuos rice cake, which were lightly coated with coconut flakes. It tasted amazingly light yet sweet enough to satisfy me.
