Golden Dragon Boat Restaurant 2017 Chinese New Year Johnnie Walker Special Pairing Dishes



Usher in the 2017 Chinese New Year (Year Of The Rooster) with the
luxurious flavours of Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve And Golden Dragon Boat Restaurant Special Chinese New Year Set Menu Pairing.

Golden Dragon Boat Restaurant Address
10, Jalan Kampung Pandan, 
Kelab Golf Di Raja Selangor, 
55000 Kuala Lumpur

Blended from selected reserves of malt and grain whiskies to create the premium drinks experience, Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve is touted as the celebratory blend fit for indulgent celebrations and festive seasons. Its multi-layered luxurious, creamy and honeyed flavours which are made for unforgettable events with friends and family, is enjoyed neat or even with a choice of mixers due to its versatility.


In conjunction with the upcoming Chinese New Year festive season, Johnnie Walker, the world's number one Scotch whisky, has collaborated with the Golden Dragonboat Restaurant, one of Kuala Lumpur’s most exquisite restaurant that serves quality Chinese cuisine in traditional fine dining ambience, to introduce a specially selected Chinese New Year indulgent menu that would pair perfectly well with the versatile blend.


Introducing the Golden Dynasty Set (RM 1,688++) featuring Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve and a selection of mouthwatering dishes include:-



The first dish on the table is the Braised Australian 3 Head Abalone With Fish Maw - The fish maw was braised to a nice spongy texture while the firm texture of the abalone clearly distinguishes the taste and flavours of these 2 key ingredients. Served with the crunchy boiled broccoli on the side, it makes the perfect combination of the ingredient in this premium dish.



The second dish under this set menu is the Baked Water Prawn With Cheese. Cut in half, each prawn is cooked to extract out the full flavour of the prawn roe with the firm white meat of the fresh prawn. With a strong taste of the roe, it is a perfect match to the light taste of the whisky.



The next dish is the Roasted Crispy Pork's Knuckle. Fried to a deep crisp and crunch, it is the best cooking method that is used to pair to the Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve. With a slightly salty and firm texture of the meat with a balance of fat and meat, it makes a flavourful combination that only a whisky connoisseur will be able to appreciate to its fullest.



The last dish is the Braised Rice With Rich Soup Served In Claypot. This version of braised rice has some similarity to the Teochew style porridge in which the rice are cooked with a rich seafood broth of prawns, crabmeat and seafood. It is indeed a flavourful dish to end our meal with.

For reservations, kindly contact Golden Dragonboat Restaurant at
03-9281 9933 or 03-9281 1313.
It is open daily from 11 am to 3 pm and 6 pm to 11 pm.

Chinese New Year is all about families, friends and loved ones getting together under one roof indulging in wholesome and sumptuous reunion dinners and reconnecting with each other.


This Chinese New Year, our Master Chefs have lined up flavoursome festive dishes that exquisitely blend both traditional and modern flavours to create an epicurean feast for both young and old alike. Simply perfect for Reunion Dinners, Yee Sang Specials and more. From the 1st January to 11th February, Ee Chinese Cuisine offers more than five types of hearty selection Chinese New Year set menus for your selection.


Starting with the not to be missed out is the one to performance one of the Chinese customary traditions of starting off the feast with the traditional tossing of the Salmon Yee Sang with Fried Fish Skin. At Ee Cuisine Chinese Restaurant it also offers some other unique varieties of Yee Sang including Salmon Trout, White Tuna, Shell Fish, Live Geoduck and others from RM98nett per serving.


The first main on the table was the Soup which is the Eight Treasures Seafood Soup, especially for the seafood lovers. It's rich in seafood flavour especially with ingredients which are crabs, prawns, shark fins, dried scallop and fish maw are some of the treasures you will find in your soup.


Next, we had the Roasted Pei-Pa Duck which was roasted to a perfect crisp with a chef signature Pei Pa sauce that went wonderfully with the roasted duck.


The fish dish which is Steamed Giant Grouper Fillet With Fresh Beancurd Skin and Ginger Sauce was steamed to the right temperature ensuring the tender-firm slice meat texture of this fish a real delight to be eaten. Supplementing the fish is the superior housemade sauce of ginger and scallions.


for the prawn dish, the chef has whipped up the Wok-Fried Sea Prawns Tossed With Golden Salted Egg Glaze. The flavourful salted eggs are nicely glazed to each of the deshelled prawns, making it very easy to eat the prawns.


For vegetables, we were served with the Stuffed Sea Cucumber With Sha Jiang Oyster, Garden Greens & Sea Moss Sauce. We like the premium Sha Jiang Oyster which is a bigger size compared to the normal dried oyster that was used for this dish and paired with the broccoli and stuffed sea cucumber.


For the rice dish, the Chef has created a personal serving portion of the steamed glutinous rice. When it arrives on the table, our first thought is that it resembles the popular Dim Sum dish of the 'Law Mai Kai' but it is seasoned with the Waxed duck meat, sausage and topped with a slice of chicken meat.


For dessert, Chef Alex serves us the Batter Fried Nian Gao With Sweet Potato; a traditional 'Nin Kuo' battered and deep-fried to a golden brown perfection with a nice crisp on the outside while the sweet cake has a melt in mouth texture.

What is so special about the steamboat/hot pot offering from Secret Garden. For us, there are 3 things that make a perfect steamboat. The first is the broth, second will be the ingredients and the third is the sauce that goes with your cooked ingredients.


A little secret for you is that one of the core founders of Secret Garden is also the founder of Yezi; which offers premium steamboat to its' patron; needless to say, the offering at Secret Garden is comparable in quality.



We started our steamboat review with a Salmon Yee Sang


As above, there is 2 soup base on offer at Secret Garden. We opted for the Imperial Chicken Broth (RM78.00) which is boiled overnight using chicken, dried ham and dried scallop to ensure the full flavours extraction from all the ingredient that was used. The use of village chicken makes this broth extremely tasty. We took the first spoonful and all of us agreed on the rich broth was so good, we can have this with some white rice.

Seafood Dumplings 'Kao Zi

The collagen-rich broth was ideal that every time we put some ingredient into the pot, we will taste out the soup, and it never fails us to want more of it.

Handmade Pork Balls with Mushroom

The way to truly appreciate this Taiwanese Hot Pot is to ensure that ingredients are simmered in according to a sequence in which the staff at Secret Garden will be on hand to assist you to get the best of the steamboat/ hot pot meal.

Handmade Fish Paste

The second criteria of a good steamboat are the ingredient, here at Secret Garden, all the seafood balls and paste are hand made, which means quality and original flavours are as expected.
