Dorsett Grand Subang Chinese New Year 2014 Set Menu

More Chinese New Year food coming up on this space of mine. This time around, I had the opportunity to dine at The Emperor Chinese Restaurant, Dorsett Grand Subang to try out their scrumptious Chinese New Year set menu.  We were in for a treat as the 'Goodwill Set' was served, packaged at RM 1388++ for a table of 8-10 persons. Check out what we had below.

As with any Chinese New Year set menu, we kicked off the feast with the traditional tossing of the yee sang. At Dorsett Grand Subang, the Prosperity Yee Sang came with a yummy twist, the addition of soft shell crabs to enhance the overall flavour. Now I'm a big fan of soft shell crabs, as I do like the softness and very tasty savory flavour of the crab. Tossing it with the Yee Sang does sound like a very good idea.

The usual suspects were found in the yee sang mix, namely the sesame oil, plum sauce, sun dried orange peel, pomelo, korean pears, shredded vegetables, crackers, toasted peanuts and pickles. Of course, if you're not into soft shell crabs, there are multiple other Yee Sangs to be chosen from. The Yee Sang can be ordered ala-carte, pricing as below.

Up next, the Double-Boil Cordyceps Flower with Dried Scallops and Black Chicken is indeed a very healthy soup. With generous portion of the expensive cordycep, and dried scallops thrown into the mix, the soup suited Janice perfectly. Double boiled to perfection, the soup had a sweet taste to it, with the black chicken literally dropping off its bones. If you love to be pampered with nourishing soup, then you'll love this dish. 


Roasted Spring Chicken

Nothing too spectacular, except maybe the size and the supposedly more tender meat from the spring chicken, our subsequent dish, the Roasted Spring Chicken was served in a rather large platter. Small sized, you could actually eat up one whole chicken, or more depending on your appetite. Roasted to a crisp, it was a nice poultry dish, but it would have been better had more of the flavour seeped into the meat.

"Now that's a lot of garlic", my initial impression when the Steamed Red Snapper with Golden Garlic and Superior Soy Sauce was brought out. Surprisingly, the garlic did not drown out the flavour of this steamed fish dish, but instead complemented well with the soy sauce. It did help that the fresh red snapper had these silky smooth white meat. 


Butter Prawns with Chicken Floss

I always like my prawns served this way, prepared with butter and herbs, served with either crunchy corn flakes, or in this case, chicken floss. The Butter Prawns with Chicken Floss was literally Janice's favourite dish of the night, as the prawns were fresh, making it easy to peel off from its skin and popping it into our mouth. A combination of butter, herbs and chicken floss can do no wrong by me. 

Mushroom, Sea Cucumbers with Oysters

With many other Chinese New Year set menus, it has become customary to include in this vegetable dish, a combination of Mushrooms, Sea Cucumbers, Brocolli, Oysters, and sea weed. Now I'm not a big fan of oysters, hence I just picked up the few ingredients that I liked. For prosperity, I was told to eat the 'fat choy' hair-like weed vegetable. The sauce was good, and complemented the vegetables rather well.

Usually, by the time we reach the rice dish, our stomach would have been really filled up by the previous dishes. That night we were served with their Glutinous Rice with Assorted Preserved Meat in Lotus Leaf dish, and not surprisingly, I could not take much of it as I was already stuffed. Dorsett Grand Subang is a pork-free restaurant, hence the preserved meat in this dish were poultry based, and tasted just as nice.

We ended the rather heavy 'prosperous' meal with sweet desserts in the form of the Deep-Fried Chinese New Year Cake with Glutinous Dumpling “Shanghai” Style and the Chilled Mango Puree with Fresh Mix Fruit and Sago. I do like the sweetness of the glutinous dumplings, deep fried to satiate my craving for fried stuffs. The mango puree was okay too, with water chestnuts contributing to the texture and flavour of the dessert.
