Chinese New Year Dinner @ Dorsett Regency Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Courtesy of Jayren, i am invited to having the early Lunar New Year reunion dinner with other bloggers at Dorsett Regency Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Checker cafe. For your information, Checker Cafe wasn't a Chinese restaurant but in this new year occasions, they offer the buffet menu.


The interior is pretty well done. Feel comfortable and peace when dine in. My personal opinion, this place is one of the best option to having reunion dinner rather than traditionally going to Chinese restaurant and get packed. You may start doing reservation now at here!






Our dinner table was very well prepared.


Our menu of the night was prepared solely by Chef Lai. Thumb up to him! He look tired but the smile was his biggest satisfactory when we enjoyed his food.

Here are the food we had on that night.

Started up with drink, we are served with the Prosperity Splash Juice. Very unique drink that full with vitamin because it is mixtured of Pineapple, Mandarin orange, Dragon Fruit juice and hint of honey. Everytime i take a sip on it i get difference fruit taste and towards the bottom i can taste pineapple most. Pretty good and refreshing juice.



Hey it is Chinese New Year, Yee Sang definitely is a must for us. It is symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor. Here, we are serve with Salmon Yee Sang with Crispy Salmon Skin. Not a salmon fans, but i definitely love the Crispy Salmon Skin.



Of course, whenever we toss the Yee Sang we will speak out all the good work and hoping it to bring luck. Can i wish for a better job and paid for me? of course, with good boss and colleague LOL

Next, Pan-fried Lamb Rack with Chef Special Sauce. It is one of the specialty by the Chef Lai and he doesn't reveal much about the special sauce is. It is one of my favourite dishes among all. The meat is completely tender and juicy enough, make me wanna go and get 2nd piece.

Another dishes must have for Chinese during this new year is none other than Braised Shark's Fin with Assorted Seafood. However, this Shark's Fin soup had more on crab meat and fish maw in it, enhancing the soup taste.

Steamed Chicken with Herbs have a pretty good texture and meaty. However it hink it was too soft to chew. People without strong teeth might like it.

Deep-Fried Cod Fish with Superior Soya Sauce is nice! The Cod fish is fresh and it goes well with simple Soy Sauce. The skin is crispy and the meat is tender.

Another dish that believe will bring good fortune is Deep Fried Prawns with Seafood Sauce. The prawn are meaty and fresh. With the seafood sauce, it is undeniable that it has rich juice and taste.

Braised Fish Maw, Sea Cucumber, Dried Oyster and Black Mushroom with Seasonal Vegetable is a great combination. It is delicious and full with juicy sauce around especially for a mushroom lover like me.

The golden colored Fried Rice with Ginger and Salted Egg was served at last. Somehow i felt the fried rice is dry. More salted egg will be good and enchant more of the taste.

Steamed Nian Gao as a part of desert are served on that night. It look sticky, but actually is not very sticky once you lift it up and what surprising is it is pretty soft to chew. The shredded coconut as topping went well with the nian gao.

Golden Sesame Ball with Red Bean paste is one of my favourite. The taste is up to quality, not too oily and, awesome :3

Sweetened Red Bean Paste is very well done too. The texture is just nice, not too thin not too thick. It was sweet compare to normal, but it is acceptable. Plus, it add abit mandarin orange skin inside to enhance the taste.

Overall, it was very satisfactory and stomach filling dinner. It was my first Yee Sang of the year with friends.
