Let’s dive in and savor the best of the best during this auspicious celebration with their RM888nett package. As how it should be, the Olive Tree Yee Sang Platter would be presented to the diners to “lo hei” in a great year of great fortune, a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor.
Next on the line up would be the Double Boiled Chicken Soup with Sea Cucumber and Scallops, a rich and nourishing soup which had obvious taste of the long simmering hours to pep it up.
The Crispy Golden Roasted Duck was something that had us gobbling up more as it was done to perfection with crispy skins and tender meat.
We also tried out their Steamed Garoupa with Superior Soy Sauce, fresh and succulent until the last bit. The size of the fish was just nice for a table of 10 pax.
The Braised Mushrooms & Homemade Tofu with Scallops & Broccoli may look simple but the overall dish was filled with just the right flavors and “wok hei”.
On the other hand, the Stir Fried Tiger Prawns with Butter Cream Sauce was something quite unique in flavors. I quite like the portion served too.
The Authentic Claypot Chicken Rice was something that I did not expect to see on the menu but it was so skillfully prepared with some charred flavors to pep up the flavors more. How I wished there with some deep fried bits of salted fish added to make the dish more Malaysian.
Lastly, we had Snow Fungus with Ginkgo Nuts in Soya Bean Milk which was a great dessert to end the meal.
Overall, the package deal of RM888nett for 10 pax was more than adequate for consumption as the portion could be rather big compared to some of the eateries available out there. The dishes were flavorful and had some nicely pepped up dishes such as the roasted duck and claypot chicken rice.
