Le Meridien Putrajaya’s Tuan Yuan celebration menus with a bang.
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.
