An Viet Vietnamese Yee Sang CNY 2018 @ Sunway Pyramid Mid Valley

An Viet Sunway Pyramid

Thru the years Yee Sang or "Loh Sang" has evolved from what it was during the early seventies; those days; they were just "Chat Choi Hong Wan Yee Sang".

But nowadays Chef is a real creative lot when it comes to Yee Sang. We have eaten a fair bit of variations especially this year and now at An Viet Vietnamese Restaurant they have the Vietnamese Yee Sang.

Staying true to Vietnamese cuisine that emphasizes fresh ingredients, An Viet yee sang features fresh salmon sashimi complemented with 100% natural fruits and vegetables, such as banana blossom, home-made pickle, radish, dried lotus seed, green mango, roasted peanut, water apple, carrot, pomelo, and lettuce.

Chinese New Year CNY Set Menu 2018 | Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant One World Hotel Petaling Jaya


Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant One World Hotel Petaling Jaya

Celebrate Chinese New Year 2018 at Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant One World Hotel with wealth, luck and good fortune. Get ready to start your Chinese New Year gourmet journey with a selection of specially curated symbolic meaning dishes.

Chef Loh Weng Lam and his culinary team have lined up for diners at the newly reopened award-winning restaurant.

Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant

Compare to the older restaurant; it offers a voluminous space in the main dining hall

and 6 private room for your dining pleasure.

Start afresh in The Year of The Earth Dog by relishing in 7 or 9-course Chinese New Year CNY Set Menu being offered which is Happiness, Harmony and Longevity Set. Each set menu begins with a colourful platter of healthy Fruit Yee Sang With Soft Shell Crab, symbolising abundance and prosperity.

followed by a tummy warming Braised Golden Pumpkin Soup With Sea Treasures. The combination sea treasures are crab meat, prawn meat and scallop which has a strong creamy pumpkin texture which combined well with the natural flavours of the seafood.

The Chef has prepared a special combination dish which features half a roast chicken and half roasted duck in the BBQ Roasted Chicken and Duck Platter Zuan Yuan's style.

What is a New Year meal without prawns? Here we were served the Spicy Wok Fried Sea White Prawn With Oat. The prawn was so crispy until you can even eat its shell. With a tinge of a spicy taste, this dish was one of the dishes that has most thumbs up.

Next, we had the Steamed Red Snapper Fish With Ginger Sauce. The ginger sauce is a special chef creation that marries both the old and young ginger. The topping of the crispy ginger topping adds another taste dimension and texture to this ginger-infused dish. If you are a real fan of ginger, you probably would slurp up every drop of the sauce with a bowl of steaming hot white rice.

For the greens, we were served the Braised Abalone, Mushroom and Garden Green.

While the rice dish is the Claypot Rice With Fried Yam, Preserved Duck Meat and Sausage. As Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant is Pork-Free; the sausages are chicken sausages.

For dessert, we had the Deep-Fried "Nian Gao" with sweet potato. The batter used for the Nian Gao makes it fluffy and crisp even after some time; which is good as normally when we reach this dish, our stomach would usually have very little room and we probably would like to eat this at a slower pace.

and finish off with a chilled Sweetened Dried Longan with Six Treasures

For those that would like to have a change from the Chinese New Year set menu can also opt to try out the Zuan Yuan Deluxe Abalone ‘Poon Choi’ Hong Kong Style.

The set menus are available for lunch and dinner and prices at 
Happiness Set Menu RM1738 Nett 
Harmony Set Menu RM1988 Nett 
Longevity Set Menu RM2218 Nett 
(for a table of ten with a complimentary bottle of wine or a box of Pu Er tea)

Poon Choy Prosperity

Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant remains open on the eve of Lunar Chinese New Year and throughout the festive period. For more information or reservation enquiries, please call 603 7681 1159 or email

Chinese New Year CNY Menu 2018 | Summer Palace Putrajaya Marriott Hotel


For the Chinese; it is important to have a good beginning as well as a good ending. For some companies "Sau Gong" which signifies the closing of the year is a paramount event. Staffs of the companies are feasted with a grand dinner to celebrate this Sau Gong event.

Besides the Sau Gong menu, Chef Yip Boon Seng at the newly refurbished Summer Palace Putrajaya Marriott Hotel has also crafted out symbolic meaning Chinese New Year Set Menu to usher the Year Of  Earth Dog.

This festive set menu is available from 8th January 2018 until 8th March 2018.

For the review, we sample the Sau Gong Set Menu which started with the Prosperity Salmon ' Yee Sang' 新春旺年大家捞(鸿运三文脆皮鱼生)

For the soup, in this set menu we were served with the Braised Crabmeat & Top Shell Soup With Dried Scallops 财圆金玉庆丰收(红烧干贝蟹肉海螺羹). With the use of Top Shell as one of the ingredient; it provides your tastebud with a firm texture of the top shell.

As for the chicken dish, we were served the Steamed Soya Chicken With Chicken Ham 黄金彩凤报喜讯(金华玉树豉油鸡). Frankly speaking for me, if the chicken is of a high grade; the best way to serve it is by steaming it; This cooking style will enhance the natural taste and also the firm and plump texture of the chicken meat. Added with the premium soy sauce; it brings out the deep flavour of the chicken.

Normally for the fish dish, Garoupa will be a top choice these days but here at the Summer  Palace the Chef has selected the Golden Pompano aka Golden Promfet i.e. Deep-Fried Golden Pompano Fish With ‘Pattaya’ Sauce  一帆风顺年年(暹式芭提雅炸黄立鲳鱼). Usually, you will find a smaller size fish which is not so suitable for Set Menu dish. But the Chef has managed to get a supply of this bigger size fish which means plenty of meat to go around. Secondly; the name of the fish which carries the word Golden has a symbolic meaning for the Chinese New Year. We like the sweet spicy taste of the Pattaya sauce which has some Thai influence.

The next dish is the Baked Tiger Prawns With Homemade Sauce 金龙呈祥贺新岁(香叶干煎大老虎虾). The juicy and plump prawns are Deep Fried and coated with an LP Sauce and BBQ-inspired sauce which is really great with a bowl of white rice.

The next dish which is Braised Dried Seafood With Garden Green 荣华盘满财好市(发菜海味盘菜) is one of the festive must-have dishes to celebrate the CHINESE NEW YEAR due to the ingredient used. I particularly enjoyed the Sea Cucumber which was braised to a firm texture and the sight of the Abalone, Dried Oyster and Black Moss, heighten the overall flavour of this auspicious dish.

Moving out of the norm, The Chef decided not to served a rice dish on this set menu instead. He is serving the Stir-fried Egg Noodles With Squid ‘Singaporean’ Style  金银盘满满钵满(星洲花枝片炒帝皇面). Most will be familiar with this Singapore style but it is usually cooked with BeeHoon. With this slight twist, the egg noodles give out a slightly different flavour.

This simple looking dessert which is Chilled Mango Cream With Ice-cream & Sago 雪花齐放迎新年(香芒雪糕西米露) hides the full flavours of the dish. The Mango cream was very fragrant and marries to the ice cream to give you that extra chill while the sago gives you a bouncy feel to this dessert.

Lastly, we had the Homemade Dessert Combination 旺年吉庆百业盛(羊城美点映双辉).

There are a number of Sau Gong Set Menu available from 8th January to 14th Feb 2018 which includes the

Auspicious Sau Gong Menu (RM1388 Nett) 
Longevity Sau Gong Menu (RM1788 Nett) 
Abundance Sau Gong Menu (RM2288 Nett)

Chinese New Year CNY Menu 2018 | Ee Chinese Cuisine Eastin Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Get Together, Toss For Prosperity & Let the Feast Begin at Eastin! 

To usher the auspicious Year of the Earth Dog; Ee Chinese Cuisine Eastin Hotel Kuala Lumpur has developed its Pork Free Chinese New Year CNY Menu 2018 that conveys an abundance of wishes for prosperity, wealth, success and happiness to its diners.

Celebrate this festive Chinese New Year with families, friends and loved ones and be prepared to feast in wholesome and sumptuous meals for a great start of a brand new year. 

Among some of the popular festive dishes Ee Chinese Cuisine Eastin Hotel Kuala Lumpur has exquisitely blended both traditional and modern flavours to cater for both the young and old alike.

Our festive dinner started with the Prosperous Abalone and Salmon Yee Sang With Rice Crackers.

For the soup, we had the Double Boiled Superior Shark Fin Soup With Fish Maw American Top Shell and Dried Scallop. Filled with top seafood quality and flavourful ingredients; this fragrant soup which is double boiled has extracted all the natural flavours of the ingredient into one. Although we felt a little guilty having to consume the Shark Fin's; the taste and quality of this soup; not even a single drop is left in the bowl.

The next dish which is the Steamed Capon Chicken Traditional Style scored in many angles and was a clear favourite among the diners that night as the smooth firm texture and the taste of the chicken meat was noticeable on the first bite. The cooking method calls for the special preparation and the use of quality Chinese Wine and herbs that extracted its flavours into the chicken.

The second main course is the Oven Baked King River Prawn With Cheese. This style reminiscent very much to Au Gratin Lobster. But instead of serving lobster; the Chef uses the King River Prawns (Sang Har). The reason being is the King River Prawns has more roe in its big head and marries well to the combination of Mozarella and Cheddar Cheese. The meat was also firm and succulent.

For the fish dish; we were served the Steamed Cod Fish With Superior Soya Sauce and Black Fungus. Using the soya sauce enables us to really taste the natural taste of the freshness of Canadian Cod Fish fillet with its' snow-white flesh. It has been quite some time; restaurant in Klang Valley serves the Codfish as it is quite pricey for a premium top quality fish like this and not many can do it right.

No New Year will be complete without a prosperity sounding dish like Braised Abalone Limpet Sea Cucumber and Dried Oyster With Garden Greens. With a full list of prosperity and fortune sounding ingredients; this dish is almost a certain appearance in most Chinese New Year meal. 

Another must-have for the festive season is the Claypot Fragrant Rice With Preserved Waxed Meats. I must say that as a Pork-free restaurant; making this rice dish delicious can be a real challenge. Most of the time, when it comes to the rice dish; almost everyone will have their stomach filled to the brim. But when we started tasting this rice dish; it was so delicious until we have to take a second helping and the third as well until no even a single grain is left.

For desserts, we were served the Sweet Duet and

the Double Boiled Snow Lotus With Longan and Snow Fungus. Served cold; it was indeed a refreshing end to our meal.

From the 15th January to 2nd March, Ee Chinese Cuisine offers sumptuous festive set menus starting from RM688nett alongside with Reunion Buffet Dinner at Swez Brasserie at RM148nett per adult on the eve of Chinese New Year and is ideal for gatherings with family and loved ones.
