The signature restaurant of DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur is adding special seafood dishes to its buffet line of over 80 choices.
Makan Kitchen Chinese sous chef Chong Wai Yin said the dishes would be served on a rotational basis depending on the availability of ingredients.
The dishes range from Steamed Pomfret with Superior Soy Sauce to Wok Fried Tiger Prawn with Spicy Golden Sand.
The prawn dish had a sandy feel due to the plentiful garlic, spring onion and shallots thrown in, and had a mild spicy taste from the chilli shrimp paste (belacan) used.
Crab lovers can look forward to feasting on the Crispy Soft Shell Crab with Szechuan Spice Salt. With every bite, you can feel the crisp on the outside and the flesh on the inside and a sourish taste fills the palate as you chew.
As for dessert, the deep-fried version of nian giao, also known as sticky rice cake, made from coconut, sweet potato and yam was a sinful treat when eaten hot.
If you prefer something cold, light and nutritious, there is the Chilled Double Boil Honey Dew with White Fungus and Chinese Almonds.
The Weekend Prosperity Hi-Tea is priced at RM78++ per person.
It is available from Feb 19 until 22 and again from Feb 28 until March 1.
All guests will be served individual portions of Braised Seafood and Alaskan King Crab Soup with Baby Abalone.
The comforting and flavourful soup had black fungus, mushroom, sea cucumber and dried oysters in it.
Meanwhile, the Longevity Dinner is priced at RM108++ per person.
It is available from Feb 18 until 20.
A complimentary Abalone and Seafood Treasure Pot poon choy comes with every six diners.
Chinese New Year is not complete without the tossing of yee sang. Those dining during dinner can also look forward to custom-made yee sang using their favourite ingredients.
