Celestial Court CNY Menu 2014 @Sheraton Imperial Hotel , KL.


Chinese New Year is the time where all family members get together. 
Take this opportunity to celebrate the year of the Horse with more good food at Celestial Court. 

In conjunction with the Year of the Horse, Executive Chinese Chef, Vincent Loo and his talented team have created specially-designed a la carte menus catered for this auspicious occasion.

马年丰收庆团圆(双宝捞生)
Yee Sang with combination of sliced japanese maguro and Norwegian Salmon served with Traditional Plum Sauce.


锦绣前程(天宝特色双拼)
 Celestial Court Duo Combination of :
特色双味虾 Two Preparations of Fresh Water Prawns
 鲑鱼籽芋茸带子 Scallop Yam Puff topped with Salmon Roe.

This is utterly the largest fresh water prawn that I have ever eaten in my entire life. The size of the prawn head easily measured the thickness of three of my fingers. Guess the size of the the prawns is equivalent to my palm, I kid you not. Fantastically prepared and deep-fried until fragrant, then lightly tossed with garlic and chili flakes. The prawns are super succulent and fleshy, getting your hands dirty when eating them is a must!

The scallop yam puff was like a darling morsel to me, they tasted so so good. Perfectly molded, deep-fried, crispy and 'yam-my'. What's more,a scallop was enveloped inside! Even their presentation won my heart. Simple and delightful. I felt so happy just by looking at them, credits to the fish roe. . . 


兴隆进宝(四宝海味羹) 
Braised Premium Treasures Soup with Dried Seafood ***

Next came the traditional , thick and delectable soup. With all the superior ingredients that you get in each spoonful, I don't see a reason why you wouldn't like it. 


年年有余(上汤金菇浸鳕鱼) 
Simmered Cod Fish with Enoki Mushroom and Wolf Berries in Superior Broth *** 

The cod was served with tantalizing broth which was infused with the sweetness of the mushroom. That aside, I think the goji berries somewhat made the entire dish looks more 'chinese' and for sure, psychologically, more ambrosial. 
Man, look at that glistening, one-and- a- half -inch thick slab of cod fish!
Let's continue to drool as this post proceed. 


代代平安(干贝鲍鱼酿豆袋) 
Braised Abalone Treasures Pockets with Dried Scallop and Vegetables ***
A dish that reminds me of the inari sushi , where I will usually eat the sweet and tasty bean curd and leave the rice aside. The shredded scallops were mixed with diced abalone ,diced mushroom, carrots and stuffed into the 'pocket' made with bean curd, the beautiful colors that made up this particular dish had me delighted.  I really love the chinese name that is given to this dish, too. 

五福呈祥(鲍鱼仔海参魚鰾发菜) 
Braised Baby Abalone with Baked Fish Maw, Sea Cucumber and Sea Moss *** 

This is a pretty decent and lavish dish I suppose. All the dandy ingredients that is not uncommon to the Chinese.  The abalone is finely braised, not being too soft nor too hard and accompanied with the collagen-rich sea cucumber and fish maw. 
Nothing too complex about this dish but it's packed full with seafood flavors and textures. Thumbs up*



满屋生辉(鲍汁烧鸭干贝焖饭)
 Braised Rice with Roast Duck and Dried Scallop in Abalone Sauce

I loved the well-balanced, strong flavours of the roast duck , especially when it stir up my appetite by adding a dash of bonito flakes as a garnish. 
The abalone sauce blends in marvelously with the rice, adding a lovely sweet tone to it, though some of my foodie friends prefer the rice to be cooked slightly drier, I am totally fine with it.
