It’s a tantalising palate-teaser for the Opulent (RM2,388++) set menu for a table of 10 persons. Depending on your preference, more of the distinctive dressing is better in elevating the tastiness of the yee sang salad while the soft shell crab bestows extra crunch.
Soused in aromatic soya sauce, the Steamed Whole Sultan Fish with Superior Soya Sauce is bound to score with diners too, not only for its symbolism of abundance and excess but also for the sweet, fine fish meat.
Chef Wong (right) says the farmed river fish weighs in at about 1.2kg each, primed for the restaurant’s expectations. “It’s pricey but the fine-boned fish tastes good when prepared the classic way, by steaming.”
Your search for happiness this CNY will come to fruition when you relish the speciality of Braised Sea Cucumber, Mushroom and Broccoli with Crab Roe Paste.

Sweet ending to bowl you over features Double Boiled Snow Bird’s Nest with Lemongrass Brown Sugar Syrup and Glutinous Rice Balls accompanied by Pan-fried Ninko Dumplings with Sesame Seeds and Salted Bean Paste. Celebrants will like its auspicious meaning and good tidings to welcome the Year of the Rat.
