Di Wei's bringing out the claws this Merdeka Day with the king of shellfish - lobsters taking the lead role. Chef Thian Taik Yong shows you five delicious ways to your heart through his tummy-pleasing lobster dishes: deep-fried with salted egg yolk, baked with cheese, sauteed with garlic, braised with ee-fu noodles or cooked in superior stock. Suffice to say, whichever cooking style you choose, the sweet and succulent luxurious Boston lobsters (RM128++ per portion) are guaranteed to ensure utmost satisfaction.
'Less is more' is the ruling maxim for our first serving that had a whole lobster sauteed with garlic. Speckled with minced garlic, the lobster's inherent sweetness was clearly discernible, amplified by the chef's choice of aromatic accent. Most importantly, the shellfish wasn't overcooked; it was pleasantly firm but not hard to the bite.
Although the Boston Lobster promotion runs until today (August 31), chances are the lobsters will still be available while stocks last.
Experience more heart-touching moments with your loved ones over sumptuous servings of Di Wei's latest Dim Sum selection (RM9++ per basket). We recommend the newest Steamed Three Treasures Prawn Dumplings and Deep-fried Twin Egg Rolls.
Love agar-agar? Then you'd go weak in the knees over the subtly sweet, beautifully cut Osmanthus and Wolfberries Jelly that look like oversized amber gemstones with wolfberries embedded in them.
Dim sum is served at Di Wei daily from 11 am to 3 pm. On Sundays and public holidays, the hours are extended from 3 to 6 pm. The restaurant is open on Saturday, Sunday and public holidays from 10.30 am to 3 pm. Dinner hours are from 6 pm to 10 pm.
