Whether it’s the all-important reunion dinner or any other meal during the coming Chinese New Year, Si Chuan Dou Hua at the PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur is all geared up with a variety of set menus and Yee Sang specials.
The new lunar year will be welcoming the Year of the Goat, according to the Chinese zodiac. So perhaps because of that, one of the special yee sang dishes features barbeque lamb. It’s a first for me. The lamb is lightly marinated with some spices and has to be grilled in medium heat and closely monitored to retain the juices. Barbeque Lamb Yee Sang should appeal to lamb lovers as the unmistakable flavour is pretty discernible even among the mountain of vegetables and fruits. In the a la carte menu, the BBQ Lamb Yee Sang is priced at RM98 nett (half portion) and RM148 nett for full portion.
For vegetarians, there’s the Vegetarian Goose Yee Sang and a healthy Tropical Fruits Yee Sang followed by the more rudimentary salmon, jellyfish and abalone versions. These are priced from RM58 nett (half portion) and RM98 nett (full portion).
I like how Si Chuan Dou Hua has come up with special menus for minimum 2 persons (starting from RM158 nett per pax) so if you have a smaller group, the set menu will still apply. Sets for 4 and 6 pax go for RM488 nett and RM688 nett respectively.
Poon Choy is also featured in Si Chuan Dou Hua – a treasure pot of goodies that symbolizes family reunion and prosperity. The layers of auspicious ingredients consist of dried scallops, fish fillet, mushrooms, fish maw, roast chicken, tiger prawns, dried oysters, roast duck, yam and Chinese cabbage. The poon choy is complemented by 6 other main course including the BBQ Lamb Yee Sang and these sets are priced at RM398 nett (2-5 pax) and RM988 nett (6-10 pax). For 10 pax, go for various sets with very auspicious names like “Happy & Prosperous”, “Smiles of Fortune”, “Golden Prosperity”, “Bountiful Wealth” and “Prosperous Blessings” with prices starting from RM1,288 nett.
Recently I had samples of some of the dishes from the set menus.
Double-boiled Sharksfin Soup with Prawns and Fresh Scallops – may be controversial to some but they do have other soups on the list.
Steamed Village Chicken with Dried Seafood and Chinese Herbs – very homely kind of dish, aromatic from the herbs and complement white rice perfectly!
Stir-fried Prawns with Eggwhite – I love this dish for its simplicity and lightness, not to mention how healthy it is! Wrap spoonfuls of the prawns and eggwhite in the crisp lettuce leaves before popping into the mouth – no guilt factor in this dish.
Braised Seasonal Vegetables, Beancurd and Dried Oysters with Pumpkin Puree – absolutely love the colors in this dish! Impressive knife skills in play too – just look at those thin unbroken slivers of smooth tofu.
Fried Rice with Black Mushrooms, Lotus Seeds and Smoked Duck – lovely smokey flavours, a nice change from the usual waxed meats version.
Chilled Grapefruit Sago
Steamed Nian Gao with Crispy Oats
