Embrace the Blessings of Spring!
It’s another month of celebration as we embrace the coming Lunar New Year with a feast with family, loved ones and friends. Head on over to a tempting line-up of specially crafted Chinese New Year set menus theme Joyful Reunion Set Menus from 16 January to 2 March, 2018 at Dorsett Grand Subang.
With many delicious dining options, one of the more notable restaurant not to be missed is The Emperor Chinese Restaurant helmed by newly appointed Executive Chinese Chef Bryan The and his culinary team. Chef Teh’s resume includes 16 years of Chinese culinary experience with his last previous stint in Macao before his appointment at Dorsett Grand Subang. Not only has Chef Teh and his culinary team crafted 4 Joyful Reunion Set Menus, diners are also in for a scrumptious list of the chef’s new dishes soon to be available at The Emperor.
Here’s a sneak peek at what The Emperor as well as other restaurants are offering this festive CNY season. Selected dishes from all the set menus were showcased in no particular order.
It is almost mandatory to usher in the Lunar New Year with the tossing of yee sang!
The Emperor is offering 5 varieties of yee sang from the classic to the premium. The Prosperity Hee Har Pink Prawns & Fresh Fruits. Expect bouncy firm pieces of poached crustaceans tossed in an abundance of yee sang ingredients along with fresh juicy batons of fruits in the classic plum sauce.
The fresh fruits along with jelly fish gave the yee sang a delightful freshness that is easy to enjoy. The dried orange peel emitted a wondrous aroma of citrus that lifted the flavours of the yee sang as well. Besides prawns, there is also other variations of yee sang with jellyfish, salmon, soft-shell crab and baby abalone.
Next on the list is a celebration of laughter with Wok-Fried Jumbo Prawn with Golden Garlic & Superior Stock Sauce. Served on a large platter for sharing, one will enjoy the luscious sweetness of the jumbo prawn paired with a Cantonese style egg laced superior gravy.
Another obligatory classic dish to be enjoy this season is Steamed Lotus Leaf Rice Mixed Glutinous Rice with Diced Chicken, Yam & Duck. This version is super yummy with just the right soft and lightly sticky glutinous rice and rice texture. Harmonious comfort flavours are elevated with generous stuffing of soft cubes of creamy yam, chicken and duck with dried shrimp.
End the set menu with plush sweetness of Deep-Fried Chinese New Year Cake with Glutinous Dumpling Shanghai Style as well as a warm and nutritious Double-Boiled Fuji Apples with Snow Fungus & Honey Dates.
The house made ‘Nia Gao’ has a glorious creamy coconut aroma and flavour that make the deep-fried Nian Gao even more tastier. Thin slices of yam and sweet potato made way for the nian gao as the star of this dessert. It is also not as sweet and the thin crispy batter is utterly delicious with the soft gooey nian gao. The glutinous dumpling makes a great pairing with its soft chewy mochi like texture. Filled with fragrant nutty black sesame filling and coated with a peanut sand, the dessert is just as good as the nian gao if not better.
For a warmth note, the Double-Boiled Fuji Apples with Snow Fungus & Honey Dates ended the gastronomic festive journey with much soothing sweetness.

Besides the Chinese New Year festive dishes, there’s more to look out for at The Emperor. Chef Teh is introducing a few new signature dishes to the menu. Diners will be pleased with the soothing flavours of the Double-Boiled Chicken Soup with Vegetable in Coconut. Double-boiled over 6 hours, the broth is lusciously moreish with a subtle sweetness from the essence of black chicken, dried scallops and coconut. The fish maw added drool worthy notes of luxuriousness to the soup.
If there is one dish that is a must-order, it would have to be the Wok-Fried Lamb Chop with Mocha Coffee. The aroma of coffee was very enticing even before the dish was savored. The lamb chop was so tender that it cuts like butter. It was simply divine in flavours and is deliciously addictive with that extra hit of mocha coffee note, balanced up with savory sweetness. One lamb chop is simply not enough as this is good enough that one may need a few extra lamb chops per diner!
Chinese cuisine always prepare fish with minimalist to allow the fresh sweetness of the fish to shine. The Poached Pear Grouper Fish with Taro & Superior Soup is a dish that exudes comfort flavours. Delicately sweet and tasty, the grouper goes so well with the creamy yam, radish, tofu and fresh herbs. With the addition of Chinese Tong Kwai and wolfberries, this is one dish that is a sure crowd pleaser with diners who enjoy tasty and delicate flavours.
