It’s time for resplendent feasting! Usher in the prosperous Lunar Year of the Horse at Ti Chen of better known as the “Emperor’s Palace” as it offers gourmet indulgence with three available decadent set menus and new creations with significant meanings representing good luck, good fortune and good health! So this year I get to taste the Chinese New Year gourmet personally created by Ti Chen’s Chef Lai Chong Seng himself and I found every dishes was superb deliciously prepared.
“Loh Hei” or toss to the year of the Horse with a myriad of fresh “Yee Sang” selection is available too. Priced at RM38++ per portion onwards, come on over with your friends and family to enjoy our offerings such as the famous Salmon Yee Sang, Seaweed and Jelly Fish Yee Sang or if you like, savour our Abalone Yee Sang! All of these available from the 1st to the 14th of February for dine-in or even takeaway which is perfect for gifts!
On that day during my tasting I got to chopstick-ing into Ti Chen’s Salmon Yee Sang which was truly delicious. I do like thick cut of salmon being plunched onto the huge serving plate that came with a lot of readily to be eaten ingredients. The sweet fruity sauce paired so well with the Yee Sang and I couldn’t help having a few serving myself.
Ready to impress even the toughest food critics, Master Chef Lai Chong Seng’s new inventions namely the Steamed River Patin Fish with Homemade Green Ginger Sauce, Homemade Rosted Pei Pa Duck and Wok Fried Prawns with Pumpkin Butter Sauce is a must try! Cleverly presented with attractive colours, fresh ingredients and inviting fragrance, these dishes will leave you contented and will want for more!
The feasting does end there! Injecting local flavours with a modern Cantonese twist, Chef Lai always sees to his patron’s needs which motivates him to create new items on the menu and all of these are made right from his kitchen! These three decadent set menus are the Auspicious Good Luck Set Menu which is worth RM988++ per table of 10 persons, the Auspicious Good Fortune Set Menu which is worth RM1,288++ per table of 10 persons and lastly, the Auspicious Good Health Set Menu worth RM1,688++ per table of 10 persons.
Master Chef Lai Chong Seng’s Homemade Roasted Pei Pa Duck was truly crisp on the outside and the meat texture was softly done and fully moist, very likeable. I couldn’t stop of not having it. Frankly I can have half of the duckling all by myself. Yes it was really good and the accompanied Char Siew sauce was intensely gourgeous.
I always try to avoid ordering patin fish due to its mauddy smell but at Ti Chen it was brilliantly executed. The muddy taste was not detected and brilliantly steamed. The steamed patin fish was cleverly coated with minced ginger and cilantro that came with bursting aroma and flavour. I just loved it.
The wok fried prawns landed with huge taste of pumpkin and butter. Very refinely done. The prawns was very sizeable. Nice.
We ended the tasting with a chilled Ling Chi Kang sweet soup that came with crunchy bites of sea bird nest to clean our tasting palate. The dining experience at Ti Chen is fabulous, flushed with cosy dining environmment, I love this place that called Ti Chen.
