Business Set Lunch @ Qing Zhen Chinese Restaurant, Novotel KL

Last week, we received an invitation to sample the new Business Set Lunch at Qing Zhen Chinese restaurant at Novotel KL. We were more than happy to accept the invitation, as Qing Zhen serves some really good Halal Chinese dishes.

For this Business Set Lunch promotion, diners can choose from 6 set menus, ranging from RM38 to RM88 per person (minimum 4 pax). We sampled Menu C (RM58 nett per person for 7 courses) and Menu D (RM68 nett per person for 8 courses).

We started off our meal with some fried dim sum and siew mai; Menu C comes with 3 types dim sum and Menu D with 4 types. This was followed by the seafood hot and sour soup (which comes with Menu D)- I liked this a lot, so appetizing. The seafood you can find in the soup includes fish lips, sea cucumber and prawn. Menu C comes with non-seafood version.

Menu C also comes with crispy chicken with honey garlic sauce and sesame. This is QZ's version of marmite chicken -  chicken was both crisp and tender and the sauce coating it was absolutely delicious. My favorite dish of the afternoon.

Love this simple steamed soft bean curd with preserved "choy po" vegetables too, great with a bowl of rice ;)

Wok fried mixed vegetables with water chestnut, which from afar I thought were "scallops" hehe. 

Egg fried rice

From Menu D, we were first served the stir fried sweet and sour sliced fish; Chef Jerry Yeong tells us that he uses toman fish as it is meatier. This means that the fish remains moist even when it's deep fried.

Another yummy dish which we could eat with a big bowl of rice.... wok fried chicken with fermented black bean sauce.

Home-style bean curd with pepper and onion

Stir fried Hong Kong vegetables with oyster sauce

A beautiful plate of yong chow fried rice with plenty of wok hei. Chef Jerry used his homemade chicken char siew for this. Both menus end with a fruit platter.

Other than the Business Set Lunch, we were also treated to Qing Zhen's ayam kampung duo set. This is perfect for smaller groups and is priced at RM35 nett for 2 person. You can choose from 2 set menus.

Both menus start with the ayam kampung double boiled soup with Chinese traditional herbs. This clear soup was comforting and delicious.

For Set Menu 1, you will get braised toman fish with yam and beancurd sticks, poached choy sum with light soy and crisp garlic, and two bowls of steamed brown rice.

For Set Menu 2, you will get stir fried pepper beef with celery as well as steamed broccoli with mushroom and oyster sauce and two bowls of steamed brown rice. Out of the two sets, I prefer this as I really like the tender beef.
