An award winning chef Ricky Thien of Lai Po Heen The Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur can just win my heart with all hands up. His current selection of line up for the MIGF menu is something to die for – in taste, flavour and presentation. Got to admit it, I had been his fan for more than 5 years now.

In his new creation, I got to indulge (not sampling) his delicioous baby abalone done chilled. The biting texture was excellent, tender as predicted. Great refined craftmanship. The accompanied fresh pamelo, avocado, kiwi abd spicy sesame sauce enhance the freshness taste of the abalone and brought a distinct taste of the abalone. Hunan ice chilled whole baby abalone is something I would look forward for another round. Who will say NO to a multiple biting of the sea treasure abalone.

!nteresting and yet came with a style of indulgence. Now having a delightful soup in a Chinese tea cup can be truly refreshing. I just love it. It came in two seperate cookware, a ceramic cup filled with cooked cordyceps, morel mushroom, baby cabbage and premium dried scallop with fish paste – a Chinese tea pot filled with double boiled soup with infused American ginseng. The drinking ritual was classy indeed and the soup itself was so flavourful.

Loved the presentation of the Trio of Corn Fed Chicken but we did not taste it as we were scheduled to have something else at Mandarin Grill. According to chef this consisted of a layer of Szechuan pepper spiced chichken, a layer of wok seared chicken and crispy chicken skin.

The Steamed Dragon Garouper Roll was so well crafted and the presentation just looked so jewel. Loved the intensity of the sauce done with superior rice wine while little bak choy steam was rolled over with garouper fish. The whole composition was just like an art. Truly artistry.

Having to view my glutinous rice came with wrapped over spinach was truly speechless which think of its content was truly exciting. The glutinous rice infused with sun dried scallop was done to my liking, soft and tendet in taste but what fascinated me was the discovery of huge cooked fresh Japanese scallop infused inside the glutinous irce. It was sure excellent. Just felt like dining as rich and famous in the city of Kuala Lumpur.

The dessert for the menu was Sweet Sensation a peanut coated butter milk cubic that came with greetea sauce over a passion fruit infused coconut pudding.
