SUMMER PALACE RESTAURANT Moon Cake 2018 & Dim Sum Set Lunch Menu @ Marriott Putrajaya Hotel

 Moon Cake 2018 & Dim Sum Set Lunch Menu @ SUMMER PALACE RESTAURANT Marriott Putrajaya Hotel


Marriott Putrajaya Hotel Summer Palace Restaurant Mooncakes Mid Autumn 2018

During our Staycation recently at Marriott Putrajaya Hotel, we had our lunch at the Summer Palace Restaurant which has a special Dim Sum Set Lunch Menu at RM88.00 per person. We decided to try this crafted lunch menu set by Chef Dixon Lai.

Summer Palace Dim Sum Set Lunch Menu - Deep Fried Salmon Fish Skin With Salted Egg Yolk

The Dim Sum Set Lunch Menu started with a Deep Fried Salmon Fish Skin With Salted Egg Yolk. The Salmon Fish skin is fried to a crunchy crisp with a well smothered salted egg yolk into every inch of the crispy fish skin, we just can't stop taking one piece after another.

Summer Palace Dim Sum Set Lunch Menu - Marinated Japanese Cucumber With Minced Garlic

The second starter is a cold starter which is the Marinated Japanese Cucumber With Minced Garlic. The chef has added a special peppercorn that has a tongue-numbing sensation after we bite into it. The Zucchini has a nice crunch bite while the black fungus slippery texture makes them ideal complimentary ingredients.

Summer Palace Dim Sum Set Lunch Menu - Braised Hot & Sour Szechuan Soup With Prawn Dumpling

Next on the menu is the Braised Hot & Sour Szechuan Soup With Prawn Dumpling. Being a Szechuan dish, you can expect a nice sourish spicy taste to this soup. The prawn dumpling was simply marvellous as each bite into the prawn filling which was sandwich into the dumpling skin was superb. It is indeed a nice change instead of the familiar Wanton soup based.

Summer Palace Dim Sum Set Lunch Menu - Dim Sum Combo

The next dish came in a bamboo basket which is a Dim Sum Combination of four exquisite Dim Sum dishes. In it, you can see what look like a goldfish Dim Sum which essentially is the Steamed Seafood Dumpling With Japanese Dumpling while the other one is the Steamed Squid Ink Prawns Dumpling with Black Truffle Oil.

Summer Palace Dim Sum Set Lunch Menu - Deep Fried Chicken Siew Mai With Teppanyaki Sauce and Fish Roe

The next Dim Sum is the Deep Fried Chicken Siew Mai With Teppanyaki Sauce and Fish Roe


Summer Palace Dim Sum Set Lunch Menu - Deep Fried Crispy Beancurd Roll With Prawns & Cheese

and the last Dim Sum dish is the Deep Fried Crispy Beancurd Roll With Prawns & Cheese


Summer Palace Dim Sum Set Lunch Menu - Stir Fried Hong Kong Kai Lan in Two Different Style

This is the followed by Summer Palace speciality vegetable dish which is Stir Fried Hong Kong Kai Lan in Two Different Style 

Summer Palace Dim Sum Set Lunch Menu - Wok Fried Flat Noodles & Crispy Vermicelli With Seafood & Egg Sauce

And finally, the dish that will fill your tummy is the Wok Fried Flat Noodles & Crispy Flat Noodles With Seafood & Egg Sauce.  Conventionally this Cantonese Yin Yeong is using the Fried Vermicelli but Chef Dixon uses the Flat Noodles which is the crispy portion of this dish. It is something out of the norm but it does taste nice.



For Dessert, we had the Baked Lemon Cheese Tarts to end our meal.

Then it is cooked with the chestnut to enhance the aroma and flavours which is evident on our first bite of this melt in mouth spare ribs, especially on the fatty layer.  The sauce is perfect with a bowl of white rice.

Mid Autumn 2018 Steamed Chicken With Lotus Seed & Garlic In Lotus Leaf

The second dish is the Steamed Chicken With Lotus Seed & Garlic In Lotus Leaf (RM120.00+) which Chef has meticulously prepared it with 2 step process which the first is to poached the chicken and then simmered the village chicken with a special salty broth to encapsulate into the chicken giving it a special light salty taste. 

The chicken is then cut into individual pieces and places on a lotus leaf and together with the lotus seed is sent to the steamer. The result is a distinct salty taste of the firm-tender chicken meat which has a broth that is again perfect with a bowl of steaming white rice.

Mid Autumn 2018 Wok Fried Giant Grouper Fillet in Hong Kong Fishing Village Style

The next dish is the Wok Fried Giant Grouper Fillet in Hong Kong Fishing Village Style. Usually, crabs or prawns is used for this style of cooking but the Chef has used the Giant Grouper fillet for a change. This prized fish is normally best served using the steaming style as one can really taste the elastic texture of the fish. For a change, the fish fillet which was battered; is then deep fried and wok fried with garlic, dried chillies and black dace to give it a fiery taste to this dish.

Mid Autumn 2018 Poached Ming Prawn With Chinese Yellow Wine

This is then followed is the Poached Ming Prawn With Chinese Yellow Wine. The extra big size Ming Prawns are laid on to the special pot, It is then fired up and cooked in front of the customer while the broth of Chinese Yellow Wine is slowly poured into the pot. 


You can see the changes in the colour of the cooked prawns and this is best eaten as soon as it is cooked so that you can enjoy the taste to its fullest with the nice bouncy texture of the cooked prawns.

For the vegetable dish, we were served with the Braised Homemade Bean Curd With Fish Lips & Mushroom in Abalone Sauce. 

The fish lips are braised to a nice firm texture together with the thick shitake mushroom and the soft homemade bean curd which is then served with poached broccoli.
