This time we had the pleasure to indulge into the creation Chef Chan Kwok specially flown in from Singapore’s renowned Hua Ting Restaurant, Orchard Hotel, Singapore which incorporates authentic cooking techniques into modern Cantonese cuisine. Hua Ting Restaurant is known for their roasted duck and also their shark’s bone cartilage soup, on that night most of us were lucky as Master Chef Chan Kwok had them prepared for the guests.

The first to make the entrance was the Crispy Roasted Duck with Grilled Fresh Scallop Skewer accompanied with ear wood mushroom. My plate of roasted duck was so succulent, moist and left with crispy skin. I was truly impressed, wanting more was buzzing in my mind.

I just love double boiled soup and having a bowl can be such a pure classic and easily lighten up my mind. Here I was put through a bowl of tender loving care of double boiled baby superior shark’s fin in shark’s bone cartilage. The soup itself was very flavourful and rice. Hours of boiling with pork and chicken, the taste was exquiste.It was lucky too, I had a double portion of baby shark fin as my neighbour sitting next to me was not a fan. The taste of shark bone cartliage was beautifully encapsuled into the soup. I just loved it.

DYNASTY Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel MIGF 2010

Dynasty
DYNASTY Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel

Dynasty Restaurant is one of the well refined Chinese restaurant that I frequent when I am think of having Cantonese cuisine and dim sum. Yet another thing about Dynasty that captured my attention is their interior and also their beautiful imported Japanese diningware. So elegant, so beautiful. Just love how food is being served with. This time I was back at Dynasty to enjoy the creation of Master Chef Tan Kim Weng who is well known for his seafood creations. What I love most is Master Chef Tan’s combination of Oriental and Western in crafting his Chinese dishes. It is always exquisite and fabulous. Having to bite into any of his creation will definitely get you hook for more and it did happen to me again this time. My journey of indulging his seven course meal was truly excellent. Got to mention, the wine was fantastic, definitely to my taste.

Pure, Simple and Authentic Teochew

DSCN3736

We were glad to have attended a weekend lunch invited by FoodStreet at Lai Po Heen Restaurant, located at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. Lai Po Heen is famous for their classic Cantonese cuisine with seafood and dim sum. The entrance to the restaurant was simple but the inside, the interior decor was beautiful and elegant. We were told that the décor is based on the grand ancestral homes of Chinese-Malaysian tycoons from the turn of the century and there are Asian artifacts and ornate chandeliers.

Deco1

This restaurant had an open concept kitchen where diners can to enjoy watching the culinary skills of the master chefs over the flaming woks. The setting of the dining tables was very noticeable due to the beautiful, elegant and slick black and white tablewares, a classic way to dine.

We were ushered to one of the exquisite private rooms where the lunch was served

TeoChewAppetizer

The lunch served was a Teochew cuisine, as it was part of the Teochew cooking class package that we had attended the same day. Firstly we were served with Teochew appetizer which consist of a variety of combination such as diced braised beef with five spices which was tasty and fragrant, lovely sweetened lotus seeds with red dates, crunchy sweet marinated cucumbers with carrots and diced galangga Teochew salted vegetable.

TaiJiVegBroth

‘A simple thick soup yet so deliciously done’ was how the Tai Chi Soup was done. The soup consisted of two different broths, the spinach leaves and chicken to form the Tai Chi design. The soup was beautifully done, tasty and I would definitely recommend.

Seafish Teochew

Seafish Teochew1

Having cold cut meat was something very common but having cold cut seasonal sea fish Teochew style was something new to me. We were served a whole garupa fish and the fish was beautifully deboned by the well trained waitress. The fish was served with marinated the Teochew beans which were full of flavoring and absolutely beautiful to indulge with.

BeefKailan

Next came the sautéed beef with kalian and BBQ sauce, the kalian was cooked in such a perfection that it tasted sweet and crunchy and what more to ask when it was topped with beautiful sautéed sliced beef.

Chicken

The sautéed chicken fillet with herbs and pearl vegetable leaf was done very tasty to my liking. The sauce used synchronizes so well with the fillet and tasted so fragrant, must be herbs used.

DimSum

Next we had three different steamed types of steamed dim sum, green chives dumplings which were tasty, sweet green pea dumplings and rat shaped dumplings.

Rice

Oh boy! Oh boy. Ain’t there a story to tell, falling in love with Teochew porridge always tickled me and so does this braised fragrant rice with cod fish and preserved vegetables in broth. The Teochew always prepared porridge with whole grain rice and this dish was done that way. It was absolutely good as the broth was tasty and topped with cod fish and well balance preserved vegetables plus little “bak choy”.

Oyster

The Teochew fried oyster was good, it was beautifully done and was very freshness, some how the Teochew does it better.

Yampudding

Chinese desserts had never fail to tempt me so was the warm yam pudding with gingko nuts and red dates. The yam pudding was creamy and was at the right sweetness that I preferred.

Durian

Lastly we were tempted to have this durian cream wrapped in pancake. This type of pancake is highly sorted for in Kuala Lumpur because of it’s taste and texture. Lai Po Heen’s durian pancakes were so delicious, the pancake skin was light and thin and the durian cream was creamy and filled with real durian, it is awesome as I had more than two yet not enough, a pure luxury!

It was a great Teochew experience that we had on that day, something to remember and a place to be back for more pure pampering and delicious cuisine.

Yours Sidney
