Diners stepping into Ruyi now have a chance to savour the first of Ruyi’s Eat Well Live Well dinners, which is available until 23 December 2019. It’s a collaborative effort with Cabana, KapowBalls and Kintry Artisan Food – all purveyors of healthy food.
Cabana is popular with their Acai Bowls and Smoothies using organic acai berries, freshly blended and free from refined sugars. Kintry is a home-grown Malaysian company specializing in healthy snacks made from scratch. Their top-selling halal artisanal snacks such as salted egg potato crisps, cookies and granolas are well-known in the market. Kapow Balls are guilt-free low-calorie dessert balls made from all-natural ingredients … yummy stuff like chocolates, dates, all kinds of nuts, almond butter, chia seeds, berries etc.
Working with these entities, the culinary team at Ruyi has curated a Chinese 6-course fine dining menu at RM168 per person (without cocktails) / RM198 per pax (with 2 cocktails) for those who would like to try something unique and good for their wellbeing.
Dinner kicks off with a refreshing Gin cocktail served in an earthenware bowl. We love the crunchy honey granola served in it – what a novel touch!

The Winter Melon Noodles look like jellyfish strands but once we bite into this, the burst of sweet refreshing juices tell us otherwise. With a light tangy citrusy dressing, it’s a lovely salad and we eat up every single leaf.

Soups at Ruyi is always the bomb … Chef James and his crew brew the most amazing nourishing soups which we always enjoy and can’t have enough. The Collagen Soup is fragrant with ginseng and the fishmaw and sea whelk give it that divine umami taste.

Sea cucumber and abalone have all the good nutritious and antioxidant elements for you. Power Protein indeed and when braised with truffle and acai, the good factors just doubled.

The Fried Rice with Mango and Acai looks so tame but instead of blandness, this bowl of rice is packed with some really nice light flavours.
