HungryGoWhere CNY2014 Dinner @ The Royal Flush Oasis Square, Ara Damansara

On the eve of the last day of Chinese New Year, I had the opportunity to dine at The Royal Flush Oasis Square Ara Damansara thanks to the good folks from HungryGoWhere. It was going to be my last Chinese New Year styled dinner for the year. Being the first time I have joined a HungryGoWhere event, it was nice to be able to meet new faces over some scrumptious chinese cuisine.

It was actually the first time I'm dining at The Royal Flush too, even though I've seen lots of reviews of the restaurant. Located in the serene Oasis Square at Ara Damansara, I found it to be a good venue to hold the HungryGoWhere Chinese New Year 2014 dinner, where we could just sit back, relax, and enjoy our meal amidst the laughter from new found friends. Check out what we had that evening, it is part of Royal Flush's CNY menu priced at RM1188++ for 10pax.

We kicked off dinner with the customary tossing of Royal Flush's Yee Sang with Salmon, followed closely by the Double Boiled Top Shell with Ginseng Root. Well, I was told the dish was Double Boiled Top Shell with Ginseng Root, but there wasn't any hint of ginseng to me, as it tasted more like double boiled herbed chicken soup. It was really flavourful though, sweet to the sip. 


#2 Steamed Kampung Chicken with Dried Scallops

The Steamed Kampung Chicken with Dried Scallops was a refreshing change from our usual Chinese New Year dishes. Served hot, with generous amounts of dried scallops, the steamed 'white chicken' tasted really good. The sauce reminded me of the usual 'shark fin's soup', same taste without the shark fin, and we get to have tender soft kampung chicken to go with it.


#3 Steamed Dragon Garoupa Fish with Superior Soy Sauce

The fish dish came next, in the form of the Steamed Dragon Garoupa Fish with Superior Soy Sauce. It was a good thing that the fish was really fresh, with the soft white meat literally melting in our mouth with each bite. Now I'm not a fish expert, but I have not eaten garoupa fish recently, and it sort of surprised me with its sweet taste. 


#4 Fried Prawn with Butter Sauce

When the Fried Prawn with Butter Sauce was brought out, I thought it looked really nice, and expected it to taste the same. Unfortunately, the taste did not bring in the 'kick' that I expect from the dish. The butter sauce was mild, and did not have that oomph to it. I have tasted better, well at least the prawns were fresh. 


#5 Sea Cucumber Seasonal Vegetables with Abalone Sauce

I've never been a big fan of oysters, hence when the Sea Cucumber Seasonal Vegetables with Abalone Sauce was brought out, I only took the sea cucumber, mushrooms and the brocolli. Nothing much to shout about though. Again, the sauce used were really flavourful, which got me thinking. I have the impression that The Royal Flush uses too much seasoning and sauces to flavour their dishes. 


#6 Lotus Leaf Waxed Meat Rice

The Royal Flush's Lotus Leaf Waxed Meat Rice came in these cut-out portions good for 10 diners. It had a rather unique presentation too, where the waxed meat were placed on a separate plate, letting us choose how much meat we want with our rice.

We ended the meal with this chinese styled jelly-like dessert, where they used these chinese herbs and some 'flowers' added in. Refreshing will be the best term to describe the dessert. Throughout the meal, the folks from HungryGoWhere were very friendly, answering all our queries relating to them. Check out some of the photos I managed to capture of the bloggers and friends at the event below.

Thumbs up to HungryGoWhere for the kind invite and a good meal at The Royal Flush Oasis Square Ara Damansara.
