Genre: Comedy

Hotel Deluxe is about a 5 star resort being run by a few incompetent staff. As the management knew the problem, they hired a new Hotel Manager to restructure the whole team. As rumous also spread that a mysterious hotel detective will arrive soon to check on the hotel conditions to ensure it match its 5 star rating. Then the new hotel manager got in 2 famous actress to do filming in the hotel to boost up the image of it.  Then a good friend of Ronald Cheng came back from travelling and she needs help by getting a fake husband to  inherit  her father huge assets.

Its a great movie and filled with laughter. If you are really bored and compare to so many Chinese New Year movie, this is the most highly recommended by me to watch first. . .

Genre: Family/ Comedy

A movie about Hong Kong in the 70’s are bustling with opportunities. Running a restaurant with moutain high debt, that wanted to suicide himself till a fairy came down and talk to him. Talking back in those days what happen to the fairy had made him look thru alot of things after that as the fairy show him what would happen to him if he wasnt around. Then he realise that he should cherish all the things he have as he are left with great friends and family.

Another great movie about friendship and family value.

This round both Hong Kong movie are so much better with good story line compare to last year and few years back. Another great movie to watch.

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.

super tanker (10)

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.

super tanker (12)

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.

super tanker (13)

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.

super tanker (14)

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.

super tanker (22)

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

super tanker (23)

If you do not prefer set, all the dishes above are specially for CNY and can be order a la carte.

Their Chinese New Year Menu Price starts from RM798++, RM988++ and RM1,398++ per table of 10 pax.

super tanker (1)

Celebrate the Year of the Snake and usher in the Lunar New Year with us as Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur’s Celestial Court goes all out to tempt your eyes, satisfy your senses and whet your appetite with a variety of sumptuous delights.

The Lunar New Year is the most important date in the Chinese calendar and is an elaborate celebration in many parts of Asia. Additionally, there are 12 Chinese Zodiac signs and for the year 2013, it is the Year of the Snake. The Snake carries the meaning of malevolence, cattiness and mystery. In certain places or culture, people believe that if they found a snake in their court, the family will be delighted. Also, people like to paste the paper-cut ‘Fu’ (wealth) character in an upside down position on their doors or windows, combined with a snake twisting around a rabbit as a popular pattern to indicate wealth.
