Chinese New Year Menu @ Si Chuan Dou Hua, PARKROYAL KL
In exactly two weeks’ time we will be ushering the Year of the Wood Horse, saying goodbye to the Year of The Snake. According to the Chinese zodiac, people born in the Year of the Horse are active, energetic, charming and cheerful.
Active, energetic, charming and cheerful is exactly what we got at Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant, PARKROYAL KL during our recent Chinese New Year dinner. Just look at the tea master pouring tea from the long spout teapot into my teacup without a single spill!
Chinese New Year feast at Si Chuan Dou Hua, PARKROYAL KL
Si Chuan Dou Hua’s signature Eight Treasures Tea of red dates, Chinese wolfberries, chrysanthemum, dried longans, dried lily buds, Jasmine tea leave, ‘mai dong’(麦冬) and rock sugar. I simply love this naturally sweet tea.
We started our dinner with Si Chuan Dou Hua’s famous Tropical Fruits Yee Sang. Nothing beats the refreshing experience of multiple flavors bursting in our mouth with the perfect combination of fruits namely kiwi, dragon fruit, mango, strawberry, apple and pomelo.
Si Chuan Dou Hua’s signature Tropical Fruits Yee Sang. If you are looking for seafood Yee Sang, they have abalone, tuna, soft shell crab, salmon, jellyfish and more. These delicately prepared Yee Sang are served with specially concocted sauces like Sour Plum Sauce enhanced with fruit flavour, Spicy Plum Sauce with Mango or the traditional Sour Plum Sauce. Priced from RM56nett (half portion) and RM103nett (full portion) onwards, the Yee Sang dishes are available for dine-in or take-away.
Next on the menu is Braised Coral Shark’s Fin with Crab Meat, Bamboo Piths and Dry Scallop. If you are against eating shark fin, just skip this dish and carry on with the next. I often find it stressful when attending Chinese dinners and of all the 10 guests seated, some are in favour while some are against eating sharkfin and when this not to mention dish is served, a debate ensued. For this particular evening, it is a reunion of sort to usher the Year of the Horse. I am so relieved when those who are not in favour just quietly informed the waitress to omit the sharkfin from our portion or skipped it totally without taking out their placards and causing a scene. The soup tastes superbly good even without the sharkfin believe me.
This Deep-fried Cod Fish with Pomelo Sauce definitely got everyone to unite and give their thumbs up. Crispy on the outside yet flaky and moist on the inside, this is easily our favourite. The pomelo gives it a sour twist while a hint of spiciness spruce this dish up to the max!
When this Traditional Chef’s Specialty Smoked Farm Chicken was served, some were wondering if something got burnt in the room! LoL! It is actually this chicken. Don’t be fooled though as a bite of this tender meat gives a burstful of flavors!
Sauteed Fresh Water Prawns with Butter and Corn Flakes. Yes! It is shelled! No need to dirty my fingers. For diners with kids like me, you don’t know how much I appreciate my food being served as simple as possible for me to eat them. They popped in my mouth and ooh la la, what a wonderful feeling it was these delicious prawns…
Braised Sea Cucumber, Black Mushroom, Dry Oyster and Black Moss with Greens. One word – Collagen! Easily my favourite pick in any Chinese dinners for the sea cucumber’s rich collagen properties, this dish cleared up almost instantly after it was served!
Sichuan Dan Dan Noodles with Scallop
Spicy noodles with minced meat, it is such a waste that Ethan cant take this but that only means all the more for me.
Last but not least, what is CNY without the ‘Nian Gao’? Steamed ‘Nian Gao’ with Coconut Flakes, simple yet satisfying to end our dinner on a sweet note.
