CNY 2017: Li Yen, The Ritz-Carlton KL

Welcome the Year of the Rooster in style at Li Yen, the award-winning Cantonese restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur. Executive Chinese Chef Leung Kwai Hong from Hong Kong has created six exclusive set menus, which will be available from 27th to 30th January 2017.

There will be three lunch menus, with prices starting from RM138 nett per person (minimum 6 persons), which includes dishes such as prosperity yee sang, dim sum selection, soup, duo meat combination, prawns, claypot rice with waxed meat and dessert. For dinner, there will also be three festive set menus available, with prices starting from RM1,888 nett per table of 10 persons. We were invited to the restaurant last week to sample their Dinner Menu B (RM2,388 nett per table of 10 persons). Please scroll down to the bottom of the post for the menus.

Start your meal with a prosperity toss, aka 'lo hei with toppings such as salmon, tuna or abalone. We had the Prosperity Yee Sang with Tuna, a refreshing change from all the salmon ones that we had this year. The raw fish slices were arranged into beautiful tuna roses... so pretty! I also liked the addition of the crunchy jellyfish in the yee sang.

This was followed by the Double-boiled chicken soup with fish maw, dried scallop and conch. Delicious, and nourishing, it warmed us up nicely on that cool, rainy evening.

Fish, served whole, signifies togetherness and abundance for the new year. The Steamed sea grouper with superior soy sauce was great - fresh and firm flesh with a lovely, gelatinous skin. Best way to enjoy fresh seafood ;)

Sea cucumber symbolises happiness for the new year. The braised sea cucumber's texture was just right, and was served with broccoli and mushrooms.

Chicken symbolises prosperity, togetherness of the family and joy. The Simmered Chicken in Bouillon is a traditional Cantonese dish, whereby the chicken is gently poached and then served with a ginger dip.

A perfect 10 for the Braised pork knuckle with brown sauce! The pork knuckle was braised until the meat was tender and the layer of fat melted in the mouth. So so good!

Ending the meal on a sweet note, we had the smooth and creamy Double-boiled almond tea with glutinous rice balls. Hubby was delighted to see this as it is one of his favorite Chinese desserts. This was complemented by the Deep fried nian gao with yam.. the best version I've tried this year!
