Noble House, Jalan Delima KL – Chinese New Year menu 2014

Becky’s 1 Minute Summary:
What: Porky outlet. One of the top fine dining Chinese restaurant in KL serving Chinese gourmet creation and delicacies.
What to order here: This review is focused on their 2014 CNY set menus so do refer to the menus and prices in the attached menu below.
I favoured the cod fish above all and the yee sang is really good; loved the added luxe touch of truffles and the fresh ingredients used.
Overall experience:  Expect premium ingredients, aesthetically pleasing dishes and a good balance of modern and old time classics on the menu. This is my 1st meal at Noble House and the infusion of artistic touches for both food presentation and preparation does make the culinary journey here a feast for the senses.

*************************************************************

Mention the “Oriental Group” and most locals would go “Oh, I’ve heard of it before…”. Visions of chinese style banquet dining comes to mind and its outlet at Jaya 33 Oriental Pavilion could be by far the most recognised outlet of this group.
But do you know that the same group operates 9 restaurants? They are Noble House & Noble Banquet, The Ming Room (BSC), Maju Palace at Maju Junction Mall, Oriental Pavilion at Jaya 33, Oriental Banquet (Section 19), The Han Room (Gardens MV) and Oriental Viva in Viva Home Shopping Mall on Jalan Loke Yew.

Since the opening of their 1st outlet in 2000, Oriental Group of Restaurant has established itself to be the top restaurant in each of the areas it operates. I have heard strong and positive recommendations from friends of Oriental Pavilion (especially for its dim sum), The Han Room and I had personally dined at The Ming Room a few times myself.

From KL/PJ I had the good tidings to lou sang all the way to Melaka town.
The Hatten Hotel Melaka is a 700+ rooms property located right smack in Melaka town. The view from my room on the 20th floor looks over the azure pool and the shopping malls within its vicinity.

Chinese New Year Menu 2014: West Lake Garden – Sunway Resorts Hotel & Spa

Becky’s 1 Minute Summary:
What: Pork free. Semi fine Chinese dining, dishes with Hakka, Szechuan & Cantonese influences.
What to order here: This review is particularly for the 2014 CNY set menus so do refer to the menus and prices HERE ->http://kualalumpur.sunwayhotels.com/offers/ReunionFeasting.aspx
I find the soups, 8 treasures duck & fish particularly enticing.

Wow, Chinese New Year is in about 3 weeks away!
How time flies, back then in 2013 especially. Things really took off for the blog and I’m grateful to have come this far.
And in 2014, I hope the stars would shine even brighter. :)

And even before the year is out, I’m already tossing to health, wealth and happiness for 2014.

From my previous visits years back, since 2009 and 2010, I’m now back to say hi to a long time friend; both the owner Jeannie and her restaurant, who has stood the test of time and still churning out good-for-the-belly, easy-on-the-pocket food.

Dim sum in Grand Imperial – 1 Utama, Hartamas Shopping Centre

For the Grand Imperial group of restaurants I would normally patronise these 2 outlets. One was due to the proximity to my home and another due to the ease of parking on weekends. On Raya day this year, instead of lemang and ketupat, my friend Clifford treated me to some dim sum after our meeting.

I wasn’t complaining. I had always enjoyed my dim sum at Grand Imperial. And after 20 ramadan buffets, the thought of eating another lemang makes my stomach churn.
