When comes to Chinese New Year, what is there extra? One thing of course there would be extra ang pau’s as we only take once a year. If its not enough then head down to Extra Super Tanker at Damansara Kim for extra umph on their food.

I can only say that I discover this restaurant very recently with influence of Pureglutton and Ken. They are so frequent that often saying how good that this restaurant is and its a must come, till last year I follow them for a special menu ordering that end up paying RM135 each per pax. I must say its one of a unique meal and very satisfying, that worth every penny of it.

Till then, we are back again to kick on their Chinese New Year Menu.

Yee Sang with White Bait 

super tanker (5)

Fried to crips and the ingredients use are very fresh. Compare to a few yee sang that I had, its pretty colourful but not this because none of the shredded vegetables was dyed. Toss and toss higher for good health and prosperity. White bait are fried to crispy that I just keep picking it up to munch without added in.

RM68 Half & RM88 for  Full Portion.

Many of my divers friend are against on eating Shark Fins and it had begin to take effect on some restaurant that comes out with options. This is definately a clever creation is Mandarin’s Birds Nest with Fresh Crabmeat Soup as a alternative choice. The soup is thick like sharkfin, and fresh crab meat that is prepare daily that enhance the soup taste with bird nest make it taste like shark fin. – Recommended~

RM48 per individual portion

Iceland Turbot in 2 Styles @ RM12.80/100g and the average size of the fish ranges from 1 to 1.3kg.

super tanker (11)

Turbot fish is a rare fish to have in restaurant. Those of you have not tried would want to give it a try. Flown all the way from Iceland that makes the fish meat texture different. Prepare in 2 styles that the fish meat were carefully slice with the fish bone are all left behind and deep fried. Then can just peel it off and eat it like cracker. Cracking sound is all over the table and it was gone within seconds.

What happen to the fish slice as it ended up stir fried with erringgi mushrooms and fungus. Fish meat are very soft and perfectly fried along. Sweetness of the meat is there.

Those who love yam, then Yam Treasure Trove @ RM48 – Small & RM68 – Large  – is a dish you shall not miss. This dish indicates “overflowing prosperity” and in Cantonese it means (“Poon Moon Put Moon”!). Love the mash yam that fried to crispy on outside and super soft on the yam cook along with crunchy vegetable and nuts.

I have eaten so many sea cucumber and I must say this is the biggest I have come across so far. Like how the chef do it by cutting the sea cucumber into half and pile up all the vegetable on top with fresh chewy scallops . Really suits the meaning of Abundance from the Ocean sailing all the way from Philippines. Imported sea cucumber definately wont come cheap especially seasons of Chinese New Year.

Tiger Prawns with Chef’s Special Sauce (“Hee Hah Tai Siu”). Love this sauce as its slightly spicy salty end. To pair with rice is the way to go . . RM10/100g and the minimum order is 300g

super tanker (15)

To me, super star of the night is this Braised Mutton in Claypot… that means “Hei Hei Yeong Yeong” (in Cantonese). Lamb were carefully chop into right small sizes with little bones along. Skin are quite thick and braised with wood fungus together with herbs and spices to cover the taste of lamb that many people do not like. Still the taste and smell of it is pretty obvious as I love it..

super tanker (16)

RM80 for a big pot of 12 pieces mutton that enough to feed a table of 10 pax

super tanker (18)

Salted fermented soy bean (“fu yue”) dip was served with the dish.   This is to slightly cover the lamb taste and the chef insist we must dip along. Perfect in taste.

super tanker (17)

Lap Mei Fan @ RM RM70 for 4-6 pax and RM95 for 8-12 pax.

super tanker (19)

Serve separately with pipping hot claypot then add on all the ingredient onto the pot and stir it.

After stir the ingredient of sliced Chinese sausages, waxed duck, waxed pork and liver sausages blend with slightly burnt taste of the rice, that make the taste even better.

When comes to chinese desert, this takes up alot of effort that first clean the pear out then add in ingredients and double boil it.  This is Double-boiled Snow Pear with Hasma

Wow, time pass seriously fast. January is gone and Chinese New Year is this week Sunday and I believe every one already busy flock into supermarket stocking up items for CNY. Well, of course this Saturday is the reunion dinner night. Still scratching your head on where to eat if you are not cooking?

Ti Chen (1)

Ti Chen Restaurant is another favorite restaurant that I would recommend for Reunion Dinner. Located inside the golf club of Saujana Hotel that brings you this another dimension. Ti Chen, which also means “Palace of Emperor” is the iconic Chinese restaurant of The Saujana Hotel.

Ti Chen (2)

The interior is like classical Chinese novel “Dream of the Red Chamber”.

Ti Chen (3)

I love the new ambiance of this restaurant, not only love at first sight as its a total dimension from the exterior out from this restaurant as you walk in you are flank with the modern Chinese yet with classic touch of it. A simple concept that you can blend in comfortably . .

Ti Chen (4)

As for family, you are able to get a little private space in between and its unique how the make their movable wooden frame wall to separate the privacy.

Ti Chen (5)

As for this year, Chef Chong Seng Lai will be presenting his favourite festive dishes in 4 special prosperity menu to usher in the Year of The Snake.  Love his cooking style that definitely make the reunion dinner better as he is more into home cook style. Along the years he manage to learn many home cook recipe and improvise it slightly to be even better.

 Sea Bird Nest for the Yee Sang

Ti Chen (6)

Ti Chen (8)

Many Yee Sang I have tasted and this is one of the most unique yet stood out in terms of taste. Sea bird nest slightly crunchy and fresh sweetness of fruits being added on along with chef special sour sauce in it that make it a perfect blend.

Double-Boiled Herbal Soup with Fish Maw

Before starting the mains, its always great to have a pipping hot soup to be serve. Something light in taste to start off with. Abalone slices are chewy and its pretty huge too.

Ti Chen (10)

 Oven Roasted Chicken with Homemade BBQ Dressing. Love the crips of the chicken skin and meat is soft that dipping along with the sauce is a must. Creatively the chef add this with onion rings.

Ti Chen (11)

The fish is one of my favourite for the night. Fresh fish meat and the special ginger chili sauce that cook along that makes it simple and aromatic.  Steamed Red Snapper with Ginger Chilli Sauce

Ti Chen (12)

Next is big succulent prawn. Asam style? Nope, its Stir Fried Tiger Prawns with Fragrant Soy Sauce. Top soy sauce quality being used to ensure that the frangrant of sauce sauce is there and well soak into the prawn while cooking.

Ti Chen (13)

You can see that many Chinese restaurant would serve dish similiar to this, Braised Seasonal Vegetables with Dried Oysters & Sea Moss .

Ti Chen (14)

Special Wok Fried Rice with Tobiko and Crispy Beancurd Skin is one of my favourite too. Filled with wok hei and every mouthfull is fill with slight burst of tobiko make it a perfect dish yet pair along the the dishes above is just perfect. Good enough to be satisfied.

Ti Chen (15)

I have always love this Warm Nien Gou with Grated Coconut, that my mom would do it 4th day of Chinese New Year and dip alot with alot of fresh coconut slices. I prefer it in this rather than the cripsy fried. Nian Gou is perfect that its not too sweet and pair well enough.

Ti Chen (16)

Stuff with lots of food above and end this meal with this big bowl of Honeydew Sago infused with Calamansi Juice. I ended up having 4 bowls of this as its very refreshing in taste and honeydew that day was sweet

Still have  yet to decide which resturant to go for Reunion dinner, Ti Chen is one of the place I would recommend if you are into homecook food with nice ambiance. As we tried the Pearl Set Dinner and comes with a bottle of red wine too. Not bad.

  • Pearl Set priced at RM988++ for a 9-course meal with 2 complimentary bottles of Misterio Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wines
  • Jade Set & Golden Set priced at RM1,180++ and RM1,388++ respectively for a 9-course meal each with a complimentary bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label Whiskey.
  • Emperor Set priced at RM2,288++ for a 9-course meal with a complimentary bottle of Hennessy VSOP.

There are also a variety of Yee Sang available a la carte from RM48++ to RM228++.

Do make your reservation to avoid any disappointment.
