A bed of smooth steamed egg white served as the base to showcase tender halves of Steamed Fresh Water Prawns with Golden Garlic and Egg White. We detected a faint whiff of Chinese wine as we savoured the fresh, springy crustacean whilst lapping up the creamy roe and sublime jus. Sedap giler!
Toothsomely QQ texture of the prawn paste made the palate-pleasing dish of Pan-fried Scallops utterly memorable. Guaranteed to put an extra spring in your step for the joyous festivities! The cluster of broccoli should ensure your green quota would be met too.
Instead of lap mei farn, a huge portion of Steamed Glutinous Rice with Diced Chicken, Yam & Duck in Lotus Leaves wrapped up the substantial parade of mains. Carb die-hards would succumb to the hearty flavours reminiscent of hearth and home.
Sweet conclusion came in a platter of Deep-fried Chinese New Year Cake and Mochi Green Tea Paste. Mindful of today's health-conscious diners, both offerings were subtly sweet; teasing the tastebuds with different textures and adroitly combining the old (nin gou) and the new (mochi).
Washing it all down with Chilled Mango Puree with Mixed Fruits & Sago, the whole plethora of festive specialities was indeed fit for an emperor. For the Fire Rooster Lunar New Year celebrations, The Emperor proffers four set menu options: Fortune of Gold (RM1,188 per table of 8-10 persons), Abundance & Wealth (RM1,388 per table), Luxurious Prosperity (RM1,688 per table) or Everlasting Prosperity (RM1,888 per table) for your picking.
