Chinese New Year Yee Sang Menu: Silka Hotels, Kuala Lumpur
In the run-up to the Chinese New Year, Silka Cheras and Silka Maytower Chef de Cuisine Lee Soon Seng (Chef Lee) has been cooking up a storm to come up with fabulous dishes and food-and-beverage offers for diners.
To kick things off, Silka Cheras and Silka Maytower are offering three (3) combinations of traditional Chinese New Year favourites to cater to an array of taste buds.
With a selection of RM788nett (Golden Treasures), RM988nett (Rising Phoenix) and RM1,088nett (Roar of the Dragon) for a table of 10, diners can look forward to traditional favourites such as Braised Seafood with Crab Meat and Dried Scallop Soup, Deep Fried Garoupa with Sweet and Sour Sauce and Oat Tiger Prawns.
The Salmon Yee Sang is included as part of the Rising Phoenix and Roar of the Dragon menus. As no Chinese New Year dinner would be complete without the traditional ‘toss’ of ‘Yee Sang’ for good luck and prosperity, diners who opted for Golden Treasures set menu may add on Salmon ‘Yee Sang’ and choose from either a Full portion (RM88 nett per serving) or Half-portion (RM48 nett per serving).
To welcome the auspicious year ahead, we were invited by the nice people from both Silka Cheras and Silka Maytower, Kuala Lumpur to experience Chef Lee’s culinary delights last weekend. We were treated to both the Golden Treasures as well as Rising Phoenix set menus.
Salmon Yee Sang
Tossing the yee sang is a must for any Chinese New Year meal as it is symbolic of good luck, prosperity, health and all things auspicious. It is believed the higher we toss the fresh yee sang with a shout of “Loh Hey” which literally means to ‘move upwards’ the higher our fortune will rise and expand during the forthcoming year.
Moving on to our meals, the Golden Treasures – RM 788 nett per table of 10 persons comprise of Hot and Cold Combination (3 Types), Braised Seafood with Beancurd Soup, Deep Fried Chicken Chop with Black Pepper Sauce, Deep Fried Garoupa with Sweet and Sour Sauce, Tiger Prawns with Oats, Braised Tau Kan with Sliced Mushrooms and Siew Pak Choy, Fried Rice with Salted Fish and Cubed Chicken, Lotus Pan Cake with Mochi, Longan and Sea Coconut (Cold)

The Fried Rice with Salted Fish and Cubed Chicken is delightfully fragrant with a very nice wok hei to it. I thought I was stuffed but am surprised to find that I still have space in my tummy for this wonderful delight.
A popular dessert, the Lotus Pan Cake with Mochi was cleared in seconds.
A pleasant end to a scrumptious meal, the Longan Sea Coconut is refreshing and rejuvenating.
