Xin Cuisine Restaurant Concorde Hotel

Fresh from one good Chinese New Year Lou Sang feast, I had the opportunity to dine in at another nice restaurant. Xin Cuisine Chinese Restaurant in Concorde Hotel Shah Alam kicked off their Golden Dragon Prosperity Feast, which is a rather unique name for their Chinese New Year menu set. It was my first time dining at Concorde Hotel, hence I was rather excited to check out their dishes that afternoon.

The Golden Dragon Prosperity Feast starts from RM588++ per table of 10 ("Auspicious" Set), to RM988++ per table of 10 (Prosperity Set). We were served the mid range "Longetivity" set at RM688++ which had a mix of poultry and seafood with their signature Salmon Yee Sang. It is not always we get to enjoy Xin Cuisine Restaurant's Salmon Yee Sang as they are only available during the Chinese New Year season.

#1 Salmon Yee Sang

Xin Cuisine Restaurant's Salmon Yee Sang was not that different from other similar Chinese Restaurant's Yee Sang which is not a bad thing as we got to toss it high for luck, success and prosperity. These once-a-year delicacies are available in small and large portions. Served during lunch and dinner, the Yee Sang dishes are priced from RM68.00++ onwards.

#2 Braised Sea Cucumber, Fresh Scallops and Crab Meat Soup

#3 Crispy Roasted Chicken with Nam Yu Sauce

The first two dishes that were served namely the Braised Sea Cucumber, Fresh Scallops and Crab Meat Soup and the Crispy Roasted Chicken with Nam Yu Sauce was pretty good, kick starting our appetite for more Chinese New Year dishes. The chicken with the crispy skin went really well with the Nam Yu sauce. 

"Nam Yu, euphemistically referred to as Chinese cheese, are little 2 cm squares of soy beans paste fermented in wine, salt, spices, chili flakes and red rice yeas. The  fermented bean cubes have a creamy, soft cheese-like texture, are very salty and are used as a cooking condiment"

#4 Steamed White Patin Thai Style

#5 Braised Dried Oyster with San Gan, Black Mushrooms and Broccoli

We wondered why Xin Cuisine Restaurant used the Patin Fish (a type of freshwater catfish) which did not go really well with our tastebuds. The fish was fresh, it just had a rather unique after taste and the Thai sauce was special too. As for the Braised Dried Oyster with San Gan, Black Mushrooms and Broccoli, my table partners said it was good, especially with all the exotic ingredients being thrown in. I personally don't really fancy dried oysters, hence could not comment much on the dish as I only had the broccoli.

Chinese New Year Dishes
#6 Deep Fried Prawns With Sweet Corn and Anchovies

The usual deep fried prawn dishes will usually come buttered, but Xin Cuisine took it a step higher and prepared this delicious Deep Fried Prawns With Sweet Corn and Anchovies dish. The shell peeled off the prawns really easily, which re-emphasized my theory that fresh prawns' shell can be peeled easier than not-so-fresh ones.

#7 Special Fried Rice with Vegetables

#8 Two varieties of Dim Sum, which in this case was fried "popiahs" and jelly

#9 Warm Soya Bean and Glutinous Dumpling

The dessert was good, consisting of fried popiahs, jelly, and my favourite the Warm Soya Bean and Glutinous Dumpling. The sweetness from the desserts really complemented our taste buds, ending the afternoon rather well.
