Chinese New Year is just around the corner and everyone is already busy shopping. Colleague and friends are busy hunting places for dining and I am saying, Chynna at KL Hilton is definately one of a recommended dining place for Chinese New Year Gathering, as by one of a well known Chef Lam.

A classic tradtion to start with definately with Yee Sang. Chynna’s signature Yee Sang for 2020, the Smoky Chicken with Rice Krispies Yee Sang – quite a unique flavours of combination with smoky chicken that gives a nice hint of bitter fragrant and the sweet sauce enhance on the flavour to pair it well.

Remark: rat platting is upon request

Other highlights from the Yee Sang menu include the Strawberry and Macadamia Nuts Yee Sang, Crispy Fish Skin and Salted Egg Yolk Soft Shell Crab Yee Sang, Norwegian Salmon Yee Sang with Passion fruit Sauce and Traditional Norwegian Salmon Yee Sang. Price starts from RM128 for half portion and RM238 for full portion.

Starting off with a bowl of warm soup is indeed perfect. Not the usual that we have as this is Braised tomato puree soup with seafood, vegetarian fins, and crushed almondsmooth,creamy and silky. Punch with flavour of seafood and love the ingredients in it as give you a nice bite.

Next is a simple dish that is punch with flavour. Perfectly baked, yet not too salty as the taste of salt baked through the chicken that gives every bite aromatic. Eight treasure salt baked chicken Chef Lam styleusing kampung chicken. Of course need to dig in with ginger-spring onion condiment.

A bit of twist of flavour. Steamed moontail grouper with green lime and garlic chilli sauce Waking up your palate with sourish thai syle flavours. Done to perfection as it is not too sourish yet garlic is not overpowering. Having a Fish on the table also signifies lots of Surplus or abundance. Year year got 魚 (yú).

Just look at the thickness and silkly texture of the gravy. From this already know that it is made with alot of effort and will be pack with flavour. The creaminess of gravy is indeed flavourful and abalone is cook right. Not to rubbery and a dish that gives you a nice chew and crunch. The cabbage soak on the gravy that gives you  a light burst of flavour when you chew on it. Love it. Sliced abalone with sea cucumber, dried oyster, sea moss, and Chinese cabbage

Stir fried prawns with kam heong pepper sauce is fresh and love the size of it. Just nice

We were so stuff when comes to this dish. The fragrant of lotus leaf smells so good. Fried rice is not too dry and preserved duck meat gives the balance of saltiness that it needs and lotus leaf fragrant just soaks in. Fragrant fried rice with preserved duck meat wrapped in lotus leaf

The perfect ending is with Double Boiled Almond Cream with Gum Tragacanth (also known as peach gum) and premium Musang king dessert. A satisfaction ending indeed. those of you do not like the taste and smell of almond might not like it as I have learn to enjoy this dessert soup over the years. Silky and smooth. Just perfect. Musang King is like top of the cream.

It is only once a year. When it comes to Chinese New Year, company, family and friends gathering is hard to avoid. It really depends how deep you would like to dig into your pocket for once a year for this. For a pork free restaurant, Lai Po Heen is top in my list where one of my favourite Chef, Chef Ricky do cook awesome Chinese food.

Yee Sang on the table had become a tradition for many of us that all of us believe tossing yee sang brings you luck, prosperity, good fortune and health. As for this year, there will be 5 yee sangs available, Sliced Abalone in Thai dressing, Yellow Fin Tuna and Salmon, Soft Shell Crab and Snow Pear, Salmon and Assorted Vegetables as well as Assorted Vegetables and Shredded Fruits in Sesame Dressing. Available for lunch and dinner, from RM138 nett to RM488 nett.

I have tried a few and I could say, by far this is one of the best Yee sang that have yellow fin tuna and salmon. The gravy that they made themselves is unique and blends well.

Love their Double-boiled abalone soup and sea cucumber with morel mushrooms and maca. They have different ingredient in it that makes the soup aromatic, yet clear that gives a boost to body where it is nourishing and good for fertility.

This is a clever mix for a simple slice of fish that opted with yin yeong. Steamed Omega rich grouper with chopped chilli paste and ginger parsley paste. One is mild spicy and one which is more spicy. Fish are fresh and a well balance of taste.

Classic dish would be this corn fed chicken that is marinated and poached, topped with finely grated ginger and spring onion.

This is a nice presented crafted dish wok fried Ming prawn with fragrant chilli paste was beautifully presented in a lantern as well as dainty butterflies carved out from carrots.

Lai Po Heen’s CNY “Fatt Choy” sun dried seafood pot features indeed a “fatt” dish where they serve with large fresh scallops, abalone, fish maw, mushroom and pak choy. I love the broth, as it is slightly thick and fragrant.

Lai Po Heen (11)

healthy grain rice which is fried with golden pumpkin and sea treasure consisting of prawn, dried oyster and dried scallop.

Lai Po Heen (13)

To end the meal, chilled osmanthus jelly with crunchy water chestnut cake indeed is wobbly as you shake onto the plate, light in taste and definitely refreshing for palate.
