Zing, Grand Millennium KL: A Chinese Six Course Meal Deal with Groupon!

Recently, I have been dining in style! Guess what… you can too! Watch out for an Unbelievable Deal coming this week from Groupon Malaysia with Zing, Grand Millennium.

For a limited time only, you can dine with grandeur at Zing (non-halal), Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur’s signature Chinese Restaurant that specializes in authentic Cantonese cuisine with light, creative oriental menu. The restaurant’s interior reminds me of Shanghai in the 30s with not an oppressive dose of the traditional elements. Zing also places a strong emphasis on the daily Dim Sum made live on the open kitchen led by their award winning Chef Leong WH.

The restaurant, which seats 110, also has nine elegant private rooms with discreet entrances and additional amenities such as exquisite custom-designed flatware and dishes. The interior is packed with contemporary dialogue cream-colored armchairs and long, curved settees with comfortable cushions. Zing is simply out-of-this-world classy and elegant. It also features a Dim Sum station open concept to tempt your appetite!

This caught my attention and it was certainly a sight indeed! Can I take this home with me please? J

Raised by a family with a passion for Chinese, Chef Leong started his career at Chan Kee Hakka Restaurant as a cook and was inspired by many great chefs along his 20 years of career.  After working at the Hotel Merlin for four years, Chef Leong joined Zing, serving Northern and Western Chinese cuisine from the heart of Kuala Lumpur. With an innate fascination and passion for food, Chef Leong’s outlook fits perfectly with the ideology and concept of what makes Zing unique.

Chef Leong fired up his wok and we were treated for a live presentation of our lovely course meal!

We started off with a very delectable and scrumptious Four Hot Appetizer platter simulating the four season course in a typical Chinese set course dinner. The presentation was charming and I just couldn’t wait to dive in! J

Salad Wanton was stuffed with fresh prawns and dressed with a salad cream. Kung Pao Chicken was perfectly executed as the chicken was evenly coated with the Kung Pao creamy dark sauce with a hint of dried chili. Fresh Squid Stir Fried in X.O. Sauce was nice as it was full of taste and textures. Last but not least, Deep Fried Soft Shell Crab was deliriously yummy with its crispy batter but soft inside. I could defiantly have a few rounds of this platter… hehehe.

Our next dish was a Trio Roasted Meat Platter which consists of Roasted Duck, Roasted Pork Belly and Honey Barbequed Pork Char Siew.

My favorite was the duck and Char Siew. Both had deep intense flavors and was so enticing. Pork belly was average.

A luxurious Stewed Soon Hock Fish with Bean Puff and Whole Garlic was subtle and sweet. The fish was fresh and a good size. A simple but well controlled dish by Chef Leong.

The next one dish of Braised Homemade Bean Curd with Stir Fried Scallop and garden greens was another beloved dish of mine! The house made bean curd was smooth and eggy while the scallop was nicely seared. The overall execution was again subtle and luxuriously put together.

Our fifth course was the chef’s special Stir Fried Egg Noodles with Shredded Honey Barbecue Pork and Soy Sauce. Nice wok hei as I caught the chef stir frying this with such gusto and huge flame.

We ended our six course meal with a classic Sweetened Potato Soup with Sesame Glutinous Rice Dumpling. Everyone at my table loved the gingery soup with the dumplings as it was so comforting to the tummy. What a way to end the meal… sigh with content.
