Fruit Loh Sang

I just love the arrival of the Chinese New Year festival as it is the time that I get to taste delicious delicates specially for the festive. My first Chinese New Year feast was at Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant and we firstly embarked with with toasting the Loh Sang. Here at Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant we graced the night with a tremendous delicious fruit Loh Sang. The dish itself was so colourful and so easily spotted. It had a variety of finely sliced fruits such as dragon fruit, jambu, melon, carrot, pickled ginger, onion, daikon and many more to name on the list. The platter was accompanied with five spice powder, crackers and a delicious homemade sweet sauce to complete the whole recipe. We went toasting and shouted loudly to welcome the new year in hoping to bring us luck, prosperity and joy ! Got to say every bite into the Loh Sang was such a treat and defintely suited well for any one especially those who are vegeterian.

Talking about food, I had a great time with great company at Dorsett Regency Kuala Lumpur recently. I was there to taste their buffet dishes for this Chinese New Year and it was terrific. There were about 15 of us sharing a huge round table filled with luscious dining ware and golden Chinese New Year decos specially created for that night. We were welcome with a fabulous delicious Prosperity Splash Drink that came with a whole pineapple and it was a delicious drink to grace the night.

Having an exclusive invitation to ursher the Year of the Rabbit and to dine with an honoured and yet a very famous personality can be truly exciting and that happened to me just recently, it had caught me speechless.

You can just fall for Li Yen immediately especially when you just step into this restaurant. It was surrounded with brilliant palette of warm colours, dark wood finishing and classical modern Chinese artistry. I just love the feel. Meeting up and sitting next to Dato’ Jimmy Choo was so special. We had great time chatting, exchange of ideas and he gave me valueable advice in what I am working on at the moment.

The Way to Indulge A Duck. . . . . !

AROMATIC & CRISPY DUCK

This dish is served and eaten in the same way as Peking Duck -wrapped in a pancake along with shredded spring onion, cucumber sticks and Hoi Sin sauce. I prefer to add spicy dry prawn chilli paste, very oishi delicious. In a restaurant, this dish can be much conviniently served than Peking Duck because a quantity of duck can be precooked in the marinade or cooking sauce and put aside. When required, they are simply deep-fried for 10-11minutes and served, bcause of th final deep-frying, the duck meat will invariably be crisper and without the care and precise timing required when preparing and cooking traditional Peking Duck.

Gosh, I got to admit that I can have half of a duck all by myself, you must try this recipe as it is pretty awesoe, simple and yet not difficult at all. You can even prepare it a day earlier, just deep fry when need to serve. If not try at your nearest chinese restaurant or if you are in Petaling Jaya, you can drop by the CUBES . . . . . . yours SidneyK

Teochew Cooking with Master Chef Tony Gao, Guangzhou – Series 4

lAI pO HEEN

An elegant Chinese restaurant specialising in contemporary Cantonese delicacies and dim sum. The décor is reminiscent of the grand ancestral homes of Chinese-Malaysian tycoons from the turn of the century. The elegant décor is redolent of the great ancestral homes of 19th Century Chinese tycoons, with Asian artefacts and ornate chandeliers. The atmosphere is theatrical, thanks to our hierarchy of Chinese chefs, who showcase their skills in the open kitchen with a display of their culinary skills at their flaming woks. Seven exquisite private rooms allow our guests an intimate ambience for private gatherings.

But wherever you sit, the menu is exquisite – think delicate Crepe Durian Pancakes and Black Pepper Beef Tenderloin
