Still Waters New Menu @ Hotel Maya Kuala Lumpur

Bring Maya Meals Home

Hotel Maya Kuala Lumpur has recently launched their new one innovative dining menu, available in all their dining venues of Still Waters, Maya Brasserie and Ramah Tamah. After a two-month closure from our global pandemic situation, Hotel Maya has reopened for dine-in in alignment with social distancing guidelines since 10 June 2020.

The new affordable menu features signature items from local Malay and Chinese cuisine as well as Japanese, allowing diners to savor a medley of various flavours at their dining venues or at the comfort of their own homes and offices.

A visit to Still Waters recently had us checking out their set menu as well as some ala carte dishes. Still Waters, a pork free eatery, features Japanese cuisine fused with European and Asian flavours as well as contemporary Cantonese inspired cuisine by their talented Chef Meng, Chef Zainurin bin Mohd Salleh and culinary team.

From their ala carte innovative menu, a piping hot bowl of Braised Hot and Sour Szechuan Soup (RM20) hit all the right spot of warmness. Loaded with lots of shredded ingredients such as chicken, tofu, black fungus and other vegetables, the piquant hot and sourness of the soup was deliciously satisfying and whet our appetite for more. Other soups on the menu includes Soto Ayam with Bengali Bread, Crab Bisque and Hawaii Oxtail Soup with Parmesan Garlic Bread.

Appetizers of Wok Fried Shell-less Tiger Prawns with Butter, Golden Oat, Curry Leaves & Bird’s Eye Chilies (RM23) and Butter Squid with Salted Egg Yolk (RM28) proved to be scrumptious bites of umami flavours.

Both seafood crispy and coated with just the right amount of flavours that kicks in much addictiveness of pleasure. Even for a diner who do not enjoy prawn or squid, he found himself polishing off both appetizers happily…

The culinary team at Hotel Maya has perfected their signature dish of Malay favorites of Set Nasi Kerabu Bersama Ayam Goreng Berempah, Telur Masin, Kelapa Parut Ikan & Keropok Ikan (RM 18) and Set Nasi Tomato Bersama Ayam Masak Merah, Jelatah, Papadom & Sambal Belachan (RM18) to much deliciousness.

Elegant Inn Hong Kong Cuisine Rice Dumpling

With Duan Wu Jie (端午) around the corner, many will commemorate the festival with rice dumplings or Chung in Cantonese. The art of making rice dumplings require a long process with many ingredients to yield a delicious result. Elegant Inn Hong Kong Cuisine has always been synonymous with fine Cantonese cuisine. Owner Jeannette Han and Executive Chef Wesley Ng pride themselves for their fine rice dumpling curated specially for this festive season.

Armed with a tagline that says ‘The Ingredients say it all’, Elegant Inn’s rice dumpling is a luscious concoction featuring Spanish Olive Pork, Japanese Sakura Ebi, Organic Inner Mongolia Mungbeans and Taiwanese Organic Pearl Glutinous Rice along with chestnuts and double salted egg yolk.

The glutinous rice is creamy and delicious. Mungbeans are mixed with the rice to yield that nutty and sweet creaminess enhanced by moreish nuances of tiny Sakura Ebi or Japanese dried prawns. Generous tender pork along with earthy water chestnut and sublime salted egg yolks take this rice dumpling to a whole new delicious level to be shared among family and friends this festive season.
