Lunar Year of the Ox is barely a few weeks away and the nation is currently
facing an unavoidable global pandemic situation through a lockdown. Despite the
current situation, The Oriental Group of Restaurants is bringing festive
cheer to everyone to usher in the festivity with a sumptuous CNY menu available
for takeaway or delivery.
festive CNY menu starts 12 January and diners can still enjoy a feast at the
comfort of their homes with Group Executive Chef Yap Poh Wong and culinary team
creations. All restaurants offer something different while signature favorites
are also available at most outlets. Here’s what a peek at new festive dishes
available from the Oriental Group…
This Year of
the Ox inspired their pretty and scrumptious creation of Golden Bull Yee
Sang (RM168). An abundance of ingredients to represent an abundance of good
blessings for the new year ahead, the yee sang is a stunner in terms of
presentation and flavours as well as textures. Lots of fresh vegetables along
with fruits, nuts and choices of seafood, the yee sang has a beautiful
juiciness that makes one go back for more.
Salted Egg Yolk Fish Skin
(RM25) is additional but its so delicious that you would certainly want to
add-on this side order to your yee sang!
Other yee sangs
available are Golden Prosperity Yee Sang, Boston Lobster Yee Sang, Forever
Youthful Vegetarian Yee Sang and classic ones. If you’re up for splurging,
there’s even a Boston Lobster Yee Sang, Moet Et Chandon Champagne Yee Sang
and Dom Perignon Champagne Yee Sang!
always been Oriental Group masterchefs’ forte. This Ox-spicious year had Chef
Yap and Chef James Ho curating a nutritious Double-Boiled Shark's Fin soup
with Fresh Fish Maw & Black Garlic (RM68 per portion). The meaty seafood
broth is very aromatic and tasty with the addition of black garlic. Every
spoonful warms the soul and tummy. There’s also bamboo pith, premium fa gao or
fish maw, shark fin and chicken in the soup.
A CNY meal
is never complete without a fish to represent Nian Nian You Yu. A golden
creation of Deep-Fried Yellow Corvina Shanghainese Style (RM33 per
portion) elevated a classic fish to modernity with its presentation. The
exquisite fish is renowned for its fine sweet flesh. Fried to golden
crispiness, the fish is further enhanced by a side of black vinegar with
ginger. The sweetness of the fish took on new flavours with that light touch of
tangy and sweet vinegar. One can literally almost eat the whole fish except for
the main bone and head as the fish was so crispy.
A modern take on the highly prized sea cucumber had us tucking into Crispy Stuffed Sea Cucumber in Hot & Sour Sauce (RM33 per portion). A bundle of prosperity, the crispy battered sea cucumber stuffed with seafood paste, is served with a beautiful tasty sauce. What was unexpected was that the sauce had a wonderful kick of heat that rendered this dish unforgettable.
Freshwater Prawn with Golden Garlic & Creamy Sauce (RM58 per portion)
looked utterly divine at sight. Not only does the crustacean looked enticing,
the luscious garlicky sauce is a match made in heaven with the prawn. Lip-smacking
to indulge and it’s the king of crustacean in the form of Boston Lobster
Ee-Fu Noodles (RM368). Slurp up that delicious strands of crustacean soaked
egg Ee-Fu noodles and tuck into that chunks of lobster for that satisfying
Desserts are sweet endings not to be missed! The Bird Nest Lemongrass Infusion with Basil Seeds & Mixed Fruits (RM28 per portion) is refreshing and has that vibrant fruity notes, making it great on the palate after course meal.
Nian Gao, presented
in a pair, is a mouthful of sticky sweetness with a filling of red bean. Diners
are encouraged to add on freshly grated coconut, coconut cream and syrupy brown
sugar for that lovely flavour and texture. This dessert also comes in a Triple
Wealth, Health & Happiness set where it includes a traditional Yee Sang of
your choice from the list, a Radish Cake with Dried Scallop & Chinese Waxed
Meat and the Koi Fish Nian Gao plus Oriental Group Teochew Spicy Sauce, all
packed in Oriental Group Festive Warmer Bag for RM398nett.
many more dishes and CNY set menu available at all their restaurants for this
