Celebrate Qixi 七夕(Chinese Valentine's Day) at FUZE@SkyBar

Qixi Festival 七夕, also known as Chinese Valentine’s Day, is celebrated annually on the 7th day of the 7th month of the Chinese lunar calendar. On this day, young couples will celebrate with a romantic dinner outing and exchange of gifts.

The festival originated from the romantic legend of two lovers, Zhinü, a weaver girl and Niulang, a cowherd. They met and fell madly in love, however Zhinü was actually one of the seven daughters of the Goddess of Heaven, so their love is forbidden. They were banished to opposite sides of the Silver River (symbolizing the Milky Way). The heartbroken cries of the lovers inspired the Earth’s magpies to fly up and create a bridge between the heaven and the human world so that the two lovers could reunite. So, once a year, on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month, a flock of magpies would form a bridge to reunite the lovers for one day.

This year, Qixi falls on 25 August 2020, and Traders Hotel, Kuala Lumpur are presenting a special Qixi menu for two days (25th and 26th August) at FUZE@SkyBar. FUZE@SkyBar is the latest pop-up dining concept by Traders Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on Level 33 of the hotel serving Asian fusion cuisine.

Boasting spectacular views of the KL skyline and the famous Petronas Twin Towers, take your love to new heights and enjoy a memorable 5-course set menu dinner specially curated by Chef Mun and his team. Rose petals and sparkling Prosecco set the mood for a romantic night ahead.

As the sun slowly set in the horizon, we were served our first course of the evening - the Duo of Valentine combination - steamed tiger prawn & chive dumpling and pan fried chicken gyoza, with reduced black vinegar and julienned ginger.

Next up, the Essence of free range chicken served in a young coconut - a wonderfully nourishing and comforting chicken consomme with dried porcini mushroom and chicken quenelle.

My favourite dish of the evening was the Cheese baked sang har - crispy egg noodles topped with cheese baked freshwater prawn and braised crab roe sauce. The perfect fusion of the famous Malaysian noodle dish and cheesy baked goodness!

For mains, you can choose between fish or lamb. Hubby had the Pan seared fillet of two-coloured fish featuring hoisin glazed salmon as well as turmeric & tamarind infused barramundi, served with Asian sauteed vegetables and mayo rice sprinkled with kizami nori. Meanwhile, me being the meat lover went for the Chinese char siew grilled lamb chops served steamed nai pak, carrots, and zaru soba. Sweet, sticky and delicious!

For a sweet end to your meal, indulge in this gorgeous Raspberry heart mousse chocolate. And if you want to impress her further, may I recommend the Ice Potong + Prosecco cocktail, whereby you can choose from one of three popsicle flavours (lychee, strawberry mint and asam boi calamansi) and pop into your glass of prosecco Trust Traders Hotel, Kuala Lumpur to put the fun element into everything! :)
