The Yu Sheng with Norwegian Salmon Fish with Assorted Pickled Vegetable & Shredded Fresh Fruit Plum Sauce was quite classic but jazzed up with lots of fresh honeydew and cantaloupe. This version offers a vibrant freshness and juiciness from the fruits, making it easy to enjoy. The generous salmon slices are luscious and tasty.
Here’s to another year filled with abundance of everything good! Lou Ah…
The next course of Roasted Corn Fed Chicken with Spicy Onion Sauce was nothing new but definitely scrumptious with its crisp golden skin and tender meat. The lightly spiced up sauce has just the right balance of savory, sweet and spice note to make the chook delectable at every bite.
Chef Ho takes on a creative approach when it comes to seafood in the set menu. The Fragrant Golden Jin Sha Style Spicy Slipper Lobster is unusual and superb. The Slipper Lobster is tender and smothered in chef special Jin Sha style sauce which resembles our classic Kam Heong except its lighter and more saucy. Needless to say, the sauce is worth licking for…
Another dish that looked relatively simple but require skills to cook the scallops and shrimp well for the dish to shine. The Wok-Fried Fresh Scallop & Shrimps with Macadamia Nuts & Sweet Bean is executed with finesse with just the right doneness of the seafood and the delicate control of flavours. The scallops are so tender and sweet while the shrimps are bouncy and tasty. Coupled with the crunchy snow peas and nutty macadamia nuts, the dish is a sure crowd pleaser.
Every festive feast this season will always include much lavishness and this one is portrayed in the Braised Abalone Shell Meat with Scallop & Black Mushroom in Supreme Oyster Sauce. Both abalone shell slices and scallops crowned plump earthy Shitake mushrooms braised in rich oyster sauce. The dish is a classic done well and finished with florets of crunchy broccoli ring.
Celestial Court offers yet another unusual creation of Seasonal Vegetable with Morel Mushroom Topped with Diced Seafood. This was one of the prettiest dish this year and it taste even better than just being pretty at sight. Morel mushrooms are premium ingredient that are not easily available. Chef Ho managed to cook the morels till tender and aromatic. These were paired with Hong Kong Kailan covered with a generous prawn, scallop, crab meat and crab roe sauce. The flavours are superb and the mushrooms go so well with the greens and seafood sauce.
Dessert is classic and ends on a sweet note with a delectable old school Pan Fried Traditional Chinese New Year Cake.
In addition to the Year of the Rooster, Dim Sum Chef, Ken Liew have also created a special home-made ‘Nian Gao’, shaped as Koi Fish that symbolizes good fortune, success, prosperity and longevity. It is considered good luck to eat nian gao during this time, because ‘nian gao’ is a homonym for “higher year”. As such, eating ‘nian gao’ has the symbolism of raising oneself taller in each coming year (年年高升). Our special home-made ‘Nian Gao’ is available in 2 different size package – Twin Koi Fish priced at RM 88 nett per pack or 1-large Single Koi Fish priced at RM 118 nett per box.
