A few more Chinese New Year Set menu posts, and we should be all set for the festivities. I've had the opportunity to sample Dynasty Restaurant, Renaissance Hotel Kuala Lumpur's Chinese New Year dishes the other day, prepared by Executive Sous Chef Kok Chee Kin and his team of talented chefs. Check out what they have to offer below.
|Dynasty Restaurant, Renaissance Hotel Kuala Lumpur Chinese New Year Set Menu|
Focusing on the use of traditional ingredients while emphasizing on light and fresh flavors for healthy feasting with family and friends, Dynasty Restaurant has created three (3) festive set menus namely Happiness Set, Fortune Set and Longevity Set priced from RM1388++, RM1638++ and RM2288++¬¬ respectively for groups of ten (10) persons.
However, if you are dining with a smaller group, Dynasty Restaurant has also created a set menu for 2 persons and priced at RM388++; and for 6 persons priced at RM808++. These menus come with yee sang for diners to toss their luck and good fortune. Or, choose the Prosperity Treasure Pot set menus suitable for 5 persons if you would like to overwhelm your family and friends with a lavish meal.
Dynasty Restaurant offers 6 types of Yee Sang – Salmon, Fruity Fiesta, ‘Fu kwei” abalone, Lobster & salmon, Abalone & salmon and Hokkaido scallop. Available in “half serving” and “full serving,” take-away Yee Sang can also be arranged for home reunion dinners and special get-togethers. The Yee Sang is priced from RM88++ to RM238++.
We had the Fruity Fiesta, a fruit yee sang that day, served with the myriad colors of fresh fruits like the pomelo, dragon fruits, honey dew, blueberry, strawberry, and mangos. Refreshing, yet I still would have preferred the more traditional salmon ones.
|Fortune Combination Platter|
As usual, up next would be the first dish to kick off a string of delicious noms from Dynasty Restaurant. Aptly named the Fortune combination platter, it comes with a basket of vegetables thats filled to the brim with vegetables, asparagus and scallops. Served beautifully on the side were deep fried delicacies, the money bag, deep fried rolls with seafood and surprisingly a rather exotic banana spring roll.
|Fatt choy, whole dried scallop & garlic with broccoli|
A must have vegetable dish, this time around there were no mushrooms, replaced with some really good non halal signature roast pork. Whole dried scallops, broccoli, and fatt choy basically makes up this very savoury and tasty traditional dish. Remember to take some of that fatt choy for prosperity and luck!
|Dynasty's Treasure Pot Of Prosperity|
Poon choy! Dynasty’s Treasure Pot of Prosperity offers a serving for 5pax at RM338++. The set comes with 15 items in the pot which includes whole Sun-dried scallop, Fish maw, Stuffed dried oyster, Fresh scallop, Flower mushroom, Fu kwei abalone, Farm chicken, Roasted duck, Money bag, Sea cucumber, Roasted pork, Vegetable, Tiger prawns, Fish stomach and Coral clam. A perfect dish to indulge in for small families, do try them out.
|Roasted Crispy Farm Chicken|
|Steamed live tiger-dragon grouper with scallion & ginger|
The mandatory poultry and fish dishes came next in the form of the roasted crispy farm chicken and the Steamed live tiger-dragon grouper with scallion & ginger. Both were prepared very well, with the chicken served with very crispy skin, and tender juicy meat. The steamed tiger-dragon grouper tasted exceptionally good, as it is very fresh and have a healthy amount of ginger inside to enhance the flavour.
|Wok-fried glutinous rice with assorted wax meat|
If you are not yet full after all the sumptuous dishes above, then be prepared to stuff yourself with some good ol' Wok-fried glutinous rice with assorted wax meat . I would have liked it if it was a tad more moist, but overall the rice tasted pretty good. The slices of abalone placed on top added that touch of luxury to an otherwise plain looking dish.
|Double boiled ‘lok mei’ with aloe vera & glutinous dumpling|
We ended our meal at Dynasty Restaurant, Renaissance Hotel with some sweet desserts. We had the Double boiled ‘lok mei’ with aloe vera & glutinous dumpling as well as the Dynasty fortune pastries. The Dynasty fortune pastries were these cute little gold fishes which were made from red bean paste while the “nien kao” is steamed and coasted with shredded coconuts on top. The dessert is sweet with multiple herbs used inside such as dried longan flesh, dried lotus seeds and lily bulbs.
