JenjalanKami was honored to be invited by Corus Hotel Kuala Lumpur to have some food tasting of their new CNY menu at Ming Palace Restaurant, located in the hotel!
Being in the CNY mood, Shafa decided to wear a casual CNY themed outfit, which she had bought years ago. Glad it still fits!
The hotel itself was lovely decorated with CNY decorations. Festive mood is in the air!
The restaurant was oriental-themed, perfect for those who are eating out to celebrate CNY.
Meet the Executive Chinese Chef behind the CNY menu – Mr. Ng Chee Wah! Beside him was the Senior Marketing Manager of Corus Hotel KL – Ms. Azlinda Mohd.
OMG we swear this was the tastiest and the most heavy full course we’ve had in our entire life! 😂
Let’s dive on into each of the dishes!
1. Lou Sang Set Of Pear And Salmon Fish Yee Sang
We started of with, first and foremost, the Pear And Salmon Fish Yee Sang! This was second or third Yee Sang for Shafa, but the tastiest one she had so far!
She’s a big fan of salmon and salads, so this dish easily became her favourite (hence, the happy face). There were pears, guava and pomelo mixed with the salmon and pine nuts. Mmmm… So yummy and crunchy!
2. Double Boiled Chicken With Abalone, Sea Cucumber And ‘Ming Mok Yee’
Have a look at Shafa’s face, and you can imagine how fragrant the broth was. This double boiled chicken soup tasted quite intense, as it is more of a tonic than a broth.
With abalone and ming mok yee added, it is said that this soup can help ward off physical and mental fatigue, improve one’s mood, regulate blood sugar levels, improve blood circulation and keep the body healthy as a whole – perfect as a dish for Chinese New Year!
3. Steamed Tiger Grouper In Supreme Soy Sauce
The dish looked so good, Shafa opened her mouth wide to eat all of them straight away (she’s a big fan of steamed fish). 😂
This Steamed Tiger Grouper drizzled with the chef’s secret Supreme Soy Sauce was so delicious! The flesh is tender, silky and super delicate – you may want to consider to ask for second serving!
4. Lemon Salad Chicken
This Lemon Salad Chicken was so good. The sauce was sweet and tangy – totally makes you feel like you’re in heaven! The chicken was crispy outside and juicy inside. We really fell in love with this dish!
5. Baked Tiger Prawn With Salted Egg Yolk
This savoury goodness was our favourite! The golden yellow dish has a sandy texture that tasted so good in each and every bite – especially since it was mixed with Nestum cereal. There’s no word to describe how good it was!
6. Fried Rice With Almond And Raisins
We totally fell in love with this dish! The combination of almond and raisins were so savoury and sweet – it pairs beautifully with other dishes in the set. This is definitely a perfect side dish for the Chinese New Year!
7. Chilled Sea Coconut With Longan
The Chilled Sea Coconut With Longan is very nourishing and cooling – perfect to beat the heat of Malaysia’s hot weather.
This dessert has many benefits for the body, such as moisturises the lungs and tonifies the kidneys – yet the sweet taste of the longan make it as scrumptious as any dessert. We wouldn’t mind eating bowls and bowls of this!
8. Sweet Dainties Duet
This dish has 2 desserts in it (hence the name duet) – which are steamed bun with red bean filling and fried ninko bun yam based with lotus paste filling.
The hot and fluffy steamed buns were irresistible! The soft and fluffy buns were stuffed with sweet red bean paste filling. As for the ninko buns, they were wrapped around lotus paste and dipped in a yam batter which were fried to perfection. They tasted so good, it made us want to have a second serving!
The set menu starts from RM 1,188 nett onwards (per table of minimum 10 persons) inclusive of one bottle of red wine or chilled orange juice with a 38% off on a second table of 10 pax.
