One World Hotel with the support of The Eton Hotel Shanghai will be promoting ‘Flavours of Shanghai” at Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant, located on the lobby level from 23 June to 02 July 2011.
Chef Terry Yu Ning (sous chef), Chef Fanny Le Fei (chef de partie), Chef Lion Yu Sheng (wok 1) and Chef Navy Yang Tian Hai (steamer 1) from The Eton Hotel Shanghai were “flown in” to showcase authentic Shanghainese dishes during the 10-day promotion. They came hand-carrying mushrooms, seasonings, sauce & whatever else that goes into the dishes so one is assured that it is a truly authentic Shanghainese experience for all.
At the launch last week, a bunch of us were given a Shanghainese treat, together with almost 60 other guests of the hotel who are mainly the hotel’s corporate clients and business partners.
I arrived late, but thanks to fellow bloggers who kept a bit of the earlier dishes, I managed to taste all of the dishes from SET C of the ‘Flavours of Shanghai” menu.
3 Shanghai-styled Appetizer
Braised Fish Head Soup with Preserved Vegetables in Claypot
Saute’ed Shrimps with Eggwhite
Deep Fried Mandarin Fish with Sweet & Sour Sauce
Saute’ed Shredded Beef with Honey Beans
Ok, here’s when I started to dig in.. the beef strips was very tenderised, to the point that almost no chewing required. Depending on your taste; whether you prefer a chewier bite or smooth melt-in-the-mouth texture, you either find this good or otherwise. Most of us like our beef with a mightier bite, and thought this was too ‘soft’. Myself? I only like my beef from a minimum grade of wagyu or kobe standard anyways.
Mushrooms with Chicken & Shrimp
Fried Noodles with Chicken & Vegetables
Noodles.. this was pretty ordinary, and had more of the beef strips as the dish before it.
Sweet Scented Osmanthus Rice Cakes
This was something different, very lightly scented with the Osmanthus flowers & chewy
(almost like the sweet cakes “Nian Gao” during Chinese New Year but not as sticky or sweet) .
Each of these Shanghainese Set menus starting from RM300++ per table of 4. But of course it’s fine if you have more than 4 pax dining, but do bear in mind that each dish is proportioned for 4.
There are a la carte dishes as well available for lunch and dinner.
Check out all the sets available from 23 June to 02 July 2011. It’s pretty affordable since each set starts from RM300++. Much cheaper than a return ticket to Shanghai right?
So yeah, book & share a table with your friends/work partners/family for a Shanghainese experience right here in PJ!
