Wok-Fried Jumbo Prawn with Golden Garlic & Superior Stock Sauce 上汤焗九节虾
Served in a crispy popiah skin ring, the jumbo prawn was coated with delicious garlic and superior stock sauce. The crustacean was fresh with firm texture remained its natural sweetness and the sauce provided a nice savouriness to it.
Steamed Lotus Leaf Rice Mixed Glutinous Rice with Diced Chicken, Yam & Duck 鸳鸯烧鸭荷叶饭
This huge serving of steamed lotus rice was perfectly executed. Soft glutinous rice with generous amount of diced chicken, duck, dried shrimps and yam which provided aroma and flavours that got much praised from everyone that day.
Deep-Fried Chinese New Year Cake with Glutinous Dumpling Shanghai Style & Double-Boiled Fuji Apples with Snow Fungus & Honey Dates 香脆年糕拼芝麻雷沙汤圆 & 蜜枣雪耳炖富士苹果
The deep fried Nian Gao was utterly delicious. The house made was not too sweet, loved the soft gooey texture and thin layer of sweet potato and yam which gave a delightful creamy finish. The glutinous dumpling aka Tang Yuan was equally decadent, soft chewy with creamy nutty black sesame filling and coated with peanut powder. I definitely wouldn’t mind a second helping of these both.
The warm sweet broth with hint of sourness was really a great and memorable ending to the meal.
Apart from the above selected dishes from the festive menu, we were a few lucky ones to sample Chef Bryan’s new dishes that evening which soon to be featured in the menu. With 16 years of Chinese cuisine experience under his belt, Chef Bryan was a Sous Chef in a hotel in Macau before his appointment at Dorsett Grand Subang.
Double-boiled Chicken Soup with Vegetable in Coconut 椰盅清炖菜胆土鸡汤
Served in coconut shell, our soup course was laden with black chicken, fish maw, scallop and baby Bok Choy. The broth was comforting and nourishing as each sip brought warmness to the heart and soul especially on that cool, rainy evening.
Wok-fried Lamb Chop with Mocha Coffee 咖啡香煎羊排
A tempting coffee aroma wafted to our table even before the dish was placed on it. Everyone had a moment of blissful silent when savouring this. Adeptly cooked to an extremely tenderness, the Australian lamp chop infused with mocha coffee was really unique in taste. The combination unexpectedly work wonders and it really stole thunder!
Poached Pearl Grouper with Taro and Superior Soup 上汤香芋浸珍珠斑
The deep fried Pearl Grouper was submerged in peppery soup with taro, mushrooms, bean curd, white radish and further perfumed with handful of coriander and spring onion. The broth also conveyed a pleasant nuances of Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis) which was nothing less than spectacular. But on personal stance, the white radish was not as soft as I would hoped.
The interior of The Emperor is themed in Oriental grandeur with earthy tone furnishing. Carpeted flooring, cream and gold panels and elegant chandeliers that created a classy ambience for an enjoyable dining experience.
