CNY 2019: Li Yen, The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur

Welcome the Year of the Pig at Li Yen, the award-winning Chinese restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur with specially designed Lunar New Year feasts, showcasing the best of Cantonese fine dining. The culinary team has specially created six exclusive lunch and dinner set menus, which are ideal for gatherings with family, friends and colleagues.

Available from 4 to 7 February 2019, the lunch set menus are priced from RM148 nett per person (minimum of four persons) and the dinner set menus are priced from RM1,988 nett per table of 10 persons. Should guests wish to enjoy the Lunar New Year specialties before 4 February, they are available with advance notice. Please scroll down to the end of this post for the full set menus.

Start your meal with a prosperity toss, with the option of including salmon, tuna or abalone for a ritzy twist. Li Yen translates to "beautiful garden" in Chinese and the beautifully plated Prosperity Abalone Yee Sang with thinly sliced abalone rosettes is befitting for the occasion. I love the refreshing crunch from the jellyfish and jackfruit slices in the yee sang.

Guests can select from three menus curated specially for lunch, featuring dishes such as Deep-Fried Meat and Minced Prawn Roll and Steamed Dried Oyster with Sea Moss from the dim sum selection as well as Double-Boiled Abalone Soup with Chicken and Dried Scallop, Chicken Simmered in Bouillon, Roasted Duck, Deep-Fried Glutinous Rice Cakes with Yam and Stir-Fried Prawns with Asparagus and XO Sauce.

The delectable offerings showcased in the dinner menus include Double-Boiled Abalone Soup with Chicken and Sea Cucumber, Double-Boiled Chicken Soup with Fish Maw and True Morel Mushrooms, Steamed Giant Grouper with Cordyceps Flower, Stir-Fried Prawns with Hawthorn Flakes Sauce, Braised Pork Knuckle with Dried Oysters and Sea Moss and Barbecued Crispy Suckling Pig. Conclude the meal on a sweet note with a delicious selection of desserts such as the Deep-Fried Glutinous Rice Cakes with Yam, Double-Boiled Red Bean Cream with Glutinous Rice Balls and Double-Boiled Almond Tea with Glutinous Rice Balls.

Stir-Fried Prawns with Hawthorn Flakes Sauce

One of my favorite dishes here was this Braised Pork Knuckle with Dried Oysters and Sea Moss. Perfectly executed, the pork knuckle is braised until the meat is tender and layers of fat seamlessly melts in your mouth.  So good!

Another traditional favourite on the menu this festive season is the Steamed Clay Pot Rice with Chinese Waxed Meat. Made with Chinese sausages specially flown in from Hong Kong, this dish requires up to 45 minutes to prepare for the flavours of the vegetables, Chinese herbs and meat to infuse into the rice for a distinct, rich flavour. The BEST lap mei fan in town!
