Celebrate Prosperity in Mandarin Oriental

Chinese New Year is upon us, and what better way to celebrate the festivities with a good, hearty meal with colleagues, friends and family.

Of course, meal preparation can get tedious, so for this year, just head to Lai Po Heen at Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur, enjoy the ambience, get comfortable and kick off the year of the Fire Rooster with their festive menus. Let Chef Ricky Thein and his team take you on a delightful Oriental journey – all you need to do is enjoy the ride.

During this promotional period (which lasts until 28 February 2017), Lai Po Heen is offering three exclusive set menus: Fortune (RM288 nett per person); Prosperity (RM388 nett per person); and Wealth (RM488 nett per person). The Fortune and Prosperity menus require a minimum of four diners, while the Wealth menu is individually plated and requires a minimum of two diners.

We had a chance to partake of the Prosperity menu, and I’ll just put this here: From start to finish, you are definitely in for a good time.

Yee Sang with soft shell crab and snow pear.
Double boiled fish maw soup with agaricus and Peruvian maca.
Steamed Omega rich grouper with preserves radish and bird’s eye chili.
Deep fried crispy chicken stuffed with fish paste and almond flakes.
Wok fried buttered Ming prawns with chicken floss, egg and curry leaf.
Lai Po Heen’s Chinese New Year “Fatt Choy” and sun-fried seafood pot.
Fried basmati rice with Chinese waxed meat and seafood.
Batter fried glutinous rice cakes with cheese and red bean ice cream.

For those looking forward to Yee Sang, Lai Po Heen’s got you covered as well. Choose one out of five options, Australian Lobster in Kumquat Dressing; Octopus and Assorted Vegetables; Soft Shell Crab and Snow Pear; Salmon and Assorted Vegetables; and Assorted Vegetables, Shredded Fruits in Sesame Dressing.

And yes, you can order them for takeaway – for those who prefer to have their Yee Sang at home or at the office, along with various festive treats from the Mandarin Cake Shop (available until 12 February 2017).

Should you prefer something lighter, Chef Ricky has some dim sum menus for lunch. There are two sets, each requiring a minimum of four diners: Longevity (RM268 nett per person); and Happiness (RM228 nett per person).

Lai Po Heen’s not the only eatery celebrating the season in Mandarin Oriental; Lounge on the Park has an Afternoon Tea featuring a 3-tier platter of classic scones and traditional Chinese delicacies, while Mosaic has an array of local and international favourites that include Chinese New Year-inspired dishes.

Now, here’s some bit of news you should definitely pay attention to: a reliable source has informed us that the “God of Prosperity” will be making an appearance in all three restaurants on the night of 27 January, followed by lunch and dinner times on 28 and 29 January.

Suffice to say, Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur has something for you this Chinese New Year, regardless of your palate or preferences. So if you’re looking for a big celebration, or just a private do, head on to Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur.
