Boston Lobsters, Mooncakes & New Dim Sum – Di Wei @ Empire Subang

I think no one would ever say “No” to a lobster meal, seeing how this highly-prized crustacean is regarded as king and stands proudly at the top of the list of desired seafood.  Well, unless you are allergic to seafood, that is.  I was told lobsters are actually pretty healthy for the diet; it’s actually lower in cholesterol, calories and healthier than roast beef!  If this is not good reason enough to eat lobsters, then I don’t know what is.

If you head on over to Di Wei Chinese Cuisine Restaurant in Empire Subang Hotel this month, you can indulge in this delicacy at very affordable prices.  Chef Thian Taik Yong has selected the finest and freshest Boston lobsters for your dining pleasure.  Priced at RM128++ per portion, you can savour this exquisite dish in 5 cooking styles:

  1. Deep-fried with salted eggyolks
  2. Oven-baked with cheese
  3. Deep-fried with garlic
  4. Braised E-fu Noodles with Lobster
  5. Lobster cooked with Superior Stock

Now, I prefer my seafood cooked as simple as possible to let their fresh natural sweetness to shine.  That’s precisely the reason why I loved our medium-sized Boston Lobster cooked with Superior Stock – a style so plain and simple with only the superior stock bathing the lobster lightly.  That’s all that’s needed to enhance the tasty marine flavours of the lobster.

While you are at Di Wei, do check out their 2 latest dim sums: the Steamed 3-Treasure Prawn Dumplings and Deep-fried Twin Egg Roll.  Each serving consists of 3 pieces and priced at RM9++ per serving.  Both items are scrumptious.  The dumplings are plump and shiny, the translucent skin almost bursting with the bouncy minced prawn inside.

I love the thin crispy roll encasing half a boiled egg and half a century egg with a soft gooey centre.  It hit all the right notes and egg lovers will definitely swoon over this.

Two new desserts have also made their appearance on the menu.  They are Mango Puree with Crystal Noodles and Osmanthus with Wolfberries Jelly.  The Mango Puree Crystal Noodles are smooth jelly strips covered with fresh mango and topped with basil seeds and decorated with some strawberry cubes.  Very pleasing to the eye and very slurp-worthy, I tell you.

The Osmanthus with Wolfberries Jelly is a classic Cantonese dessert, very popular in Hong Kong.  The aromatic Osmanthus blooms are good for the complexion and wolfberries have traditionally been prescribed to promote eyesight, so go ahead, have lots of this jelly – it’s definitely very good for you!
