Three Lunar Set Menus, Prosperity Yee Sang and Festive Dim Sum will have you jumping for joy this Year of the Rabbit at Dorsett Grand Subang (DGS).

DGS Chinese Executive Chef Eric San and his team showcased Health Set B (RM1,688 per table of 10 persons) during our recent media preview; a lavish 9-course meal incorporating premium, healthy and symbolic ingredients befitting the auspicious Lunar New Year celebration.

Denoting fame and recognition, we tossed and stirred the refreshing platter of Prosperity Yee Sang with Salmon and Shredded Young Mango with much gusto before relishing the melange of freshly shredded fruits, vegetables, crisps and crackers dressed in a fruity-plum sauce.
With promises of career success, the subsequent tureen of Double Boiled Wild Mushroom with Bamboo Pith and Farmed Village Chicken was warmly welcomed. The concentrated sweetness of the various ingredients was a soothing balm for the soul.
Heralding an abundance of blessings, the Roast Crispy Chicken with Barbecue and Chilli Oil proved on-point with its crispy skin and juicy meat. The accompanying barbecue-chilli oil dialled up its appeal factor, adding some tantalising spicy heat to the chook.

Eaten to symbolise hope and abundance for the Lunar New Year, we thoroughly enjoyed the delicate sweetness of the Hong Kong Style Steamed Live High Fin Patin with Superior Soya Sauce. The smooth flesh coupled with the garlicky and mildly sweet soy sauce made it something to write home about.

When it comes to evoking laughter and happiness, Chef Eric San banked on his crowd-pleasing Wok Fried Tiger Prawns with Superior Soya Sauce. Suffice to say, the delicious crustaceans brought out the smiles at first bite.

Fervent wishes of good things and prosperity were foremost in our minds when the Braised Sea Cucumber with Dried Oysters and Sea Moss was served. A perennial Lunar New Year dish eagerly partaken by everyone, this luxurious dish ticked all the right boxes for us.

A joyful reunion of Steamed Organic Brown Rice with White Rice and Smoked Duck garnered two thumbs up in place of the more traditional glutinous rice. 
The inclusion of diced yam, peas, corn kernels, and peanuts lent the rice dish a myriad of textures whilst the diced smoked duck lent a nice smoky savouriness to it.
To ensure a sweet year ahead, we feasted on Doubled Boiled Red Dates with Sweet Peach Resin and Snow Fungus accompanied by Deep-fried Chinese New Year Cake and Glutinous Dumplings Shanghai Style. It was a relief to find these treats are restrained on the sweetness level.

The Emperor also serves five variants of Prosperity Yee Sang (from RM98 upwards) in addition to two other Set Menus: Prosperity Set A (RM1,388 nett per table of 10) and Wealth Set C (RM1,988 nett per table of 10).

Adding to the festive merriment, Dim Sum Master Chef Chan Chee Loong has also created a Lunar New Year Selection of Dim Sum.
Available now until 5 February for lunch (except Mondays) from 12noon to 230pm at The Emperor, you can sample cute rabbit-shaped Steamed Prawn Crystal Dumplings (RM28) or delicate Steamed Blue Pea Flower Dumplings (RM28).

Other tempting options include Steamed Siew Mai with Dried Oyster & Sea Moss (RM28), Steamed Beancurd Skin Stuffed with Seafood (RM25), Steamed Stuffed Green Mussels with Oriental Butter Sauce (RM25), and Deep-fried Banana with Red Bean & Prawn (RM22).

The savouriness of mentaiko (salted mullet roe) lends a distinctive dimension to the Yee Sang at Le Mei Restaurant this year. Together with sliced salmon, assorted crispy treasures and blackcurrant-plum dressing, this refreshing salad adds great cheer to our preview of
Le Meridien Putrajaya’s Tuan Yuan celebration menus with a bang.

Available from
8 January to 5 February 2023, Chef Lim Kian Meng and his team deftly tickle our tastebuds with the inventive Mentaiko and Salmon Yee Sang. Other variants will include Salmon and Crispy Noodle Yee Sang, Four Seasons Prosperity Yee Sang, and Whole Abalone Yee Sang during the celebratory period.

Warming up hearts and minds is a salubrious Double Boiled Silkie Fowl Soup with Abalone, Porcini Mushroom and Dried Scallops. 
Sweet and clear, the wholesome broth includes red dates and wai san (Chinese yam) in addition to the premium and nutritious ingredients mentioned.

Synonymous with laughter and happiness, prawns are much favoured during Chinese New Year. Lightly covered in a creamy sauce, the springy tenderness of the Poached River Prawns with Cheese and Roasted Garlic in Superior Broth will leave you smiling from ear to ear once you sample this delicious speciality.

Juicy, plump and succulent, the Hong Kong Style Poached Free-range Chicken with Sand Ginger looks set to rule the roost among CNY celebrants. 
The marble-smooth skin coupled with the juicy meat – enhanced with the warm spiciness of the coarsely chopped sand ginger topping – is something to crow about.

To ensure more prosperity and good fortune for the Year of the Rabbit, feast on the ubiquitous and much cherished Braised Sea Cucumber with Dried Oysters and Fatt Choy in Oyster Sauce. 
Blanched broccoli florets are perfect for soaking up the glossy sauce brimming with deep-seated musky, shellfish flavours. A myriad of textural contrasts converges amidst the tumult of key ingredients: the sea cucumber’s slippery sponginess, the soft crumbliness of dried oysters, and the slick fine threads of sea moss.

A wedge of sautéed foie gras lends a touch of luxury to the penultimate dish of Fried Organic Brown Rice with Sakura Shrimp, Seafood and Foie Gras. The richness of the liver melds nicely with the nutty brown rice and amplifies the delicate seafood sweetness.

Somehow you will find room to fit in the serving of Double Boiled Snow Fungus with Honey Locust Fruit and Peach Resin. As sweet dessert broths go, it’s mildly sweet with the different ingredients added to stimulate greater mouth feel. Crispy Sesame Balls and Pandan Glutinous Rice Cakes round off the celebratory dinner on a cheery note.

The Chinese New Year Dinner will be held on 21st and 22nd January 2022, at RM188nett (adult) and RM94nett (child), while the Chinese New Year Brunch will be held on 22nd and 23rd   January 2023, at RM168nett (adult) and RM84nett (child).

Set menus are priced from RM1,440 nett per table of 5 diners (inclusive of a bottle of wine) and RM2,588 nett per table of 10 (inclusive of a bottle of Martell).
