To welcome the Year of the Water Rabbit, the team at Grand Millennium KL will be serving up delectable spreads at Lai Ching Yuen.
Yee Sang with Sliced Norwegian Salmon and Crispy Fish Skin
We started off with Yee Sang where it is served beautifully with the fresh Sliced Norwegian Salmon and Crispy Fish Skin. The yee sang is exceptionally delicious where the ingredients are superbly fresh and every mouthful is simply heavenly.
Double Boiled Chicken Soup with Dry Scallop, Sea Cucumber and Agaricus Blazei
You can enjoy the Double Boiled Soup which is packed with flavours and one of the highlights is they had added the Agaricus Blazei which is the imported mushroom. They are also using the Dry Scallop from Japan and the soup is double boiled for 7-9 hours. The soup is complete with the aromatic hint from all the ingredients and each sip is heavenly.
Wok-fried Slipper Lobster in “Bei Fong Tong” Style
Inspired by the famous Hong Kong Cuuisine, Lai Ching Yuen had recreated their own version of “Bei Fong Tong” using their own created style. This is where the chily together with loads of garlic is deep fried till perfection leaving you the light spicy hint but yet addictive flavours.
Fried Green Eye Grouper with Hot Oil in Wave Style
Using the Green Eye Grouper which is beautifully prepared In the Hot Wave Style. This is where the fish is being splash with water and oil to create the flaky texture of the fish. They are indeed so good and delicious.
Hong Kong Roasted Duck
He duck is specially imported all the way from Ipoh. We understand that the duck is feed with organic and healthy food creating the meat comes tender and succulent. They are indeed well roasted and we love how they had made it where it leaves you with the crispy skin and yet the tender and juicy meat with no gammy taste in it.
Braised Dried Oyster with Sea Moss, Dry Scallop, Shredded Mushroom and Garden Greens
As for this dish, we found out that the dried oyster is different from many place we tasted. In here, the oyster is all the way from Gongdong Provience and the chef had choosen the best oyster here. In here, the oyster is not dried but it comes pulpy and delicious. It is sides with the Sea Moss, Dried Scallop and the Chinese Cabbage. Superbly good.
Chinese Wax Meat Rice wrapped in Lotus Leaf
The dish is irrestible and I am totally in love with it. The Lap Mei which is used is all the way imported from Hong Kong and in here chef’s had combined the wax meat, Chinese waxed meat and wax duck in it. Using the fragrant rice and chef’s signature recipe, it is beautifully cooked in the lotus leaf leaving the flavours of the lotus leaf absorb in to it. This is so good and I don’t mind having the second bowl.
Crispy Yam Nian Gao
Sweetened Red Bean Soup with Glutinous Rice Ball
We ends our meal with the awesomely prepared Crispy Yam Nia Gao where it is the signature of Lai Ching Yuen The nian gao here is made from scratch by their chef and they are one of the items which is available whole year round. The flour is hand grinded by themselves and it brings you with the perfect sweetness and stickiness.
