Thanks to the wonderful invitation from Lai Ching Yuen Chinese Restaurant At Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur, I'm here again and this time to review and taste their new addition to their a la carte menu, showcasing some of the best Cantonese cuisines with an array of seafood, poultry and pork dishes. 

Stunning Red & Black Interior


Like an evocation of its name, Lai Ching Yuen presents a lush sensory experience as much as a gastronomic one. The decor and its stunning red and black interior create a glamorous setting for some of the best cuisine this side of Guangzhou. And the food, award-winning delicacies accented by oriental table settings, take the traditional refinement of Cantonese cuisine to dizzying heights.

Lai Ching Yuen's new a la carte menu is a testament to the inventive nature of the cuisine itself. Crafted by Executive Chef Terence Foong along with his team of culinary brigade, it exudes a touch of modernity to both the presentation as well as cooking techniques and is a juxtaposition of flavours, textures and freshness.

Let me take you on a gastronomical journey of my amazingly delicious Cantonese cuisine that was presented to me last week by Executive Chinese Chef Terence Foong πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

Smoked Duck Breast With Chef's Special Dressing

We started off with Smoked Duck Breast With Chef's Special Dressing -The smoked duck breast pairs perfectly with fresh greens such as crunchy zucchini. Drizzled with Chef's special secret sweet, spicy and sourish dressing only makes it more irresistible. I have the last piece and that explains how good it is to me. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Stuffed White Mushroom With Pork & Shrimp In Marmite Sauce

Another appetiser on the menu was the Stuffed White Mushroom With Pork & Shrimp In Marmite Sauce. A medley of minced pork and shrimp stuffed into the fresh white mushroom beautifully coated with fragrant marmite sauce, providing a textural delight of crunchy, chewy and softness to the dish. A good aroma of a breath of wok was duly noted together with the savoury aroma of marmite sauce.

Lovely classic dish of Crispy Fried Cuttlefish With Salt & Pepper ~ I simply cannot get enough of it. Positive highlights on the dish here lie on where I could taste the juicy and succulent texture of the cuttlefish unlike some of others that I have tried.

A myriad of crispy battered cuttlefish had the zesty heat from the chilli partnering with pungent pepper and salty flavours. Simply addictive with a beer or even rice! 😍😍😍

Another classic HongKong dish is the  Wok-Fried Bei Fong Tong Style Prawns. This aromatic seafood dish packs loads of punchy spicy notes. Crispy battered prawns are perfumed with lots of dried chilli and sliced almonds to give it its aromatic distinctive flavour. Love this and I can never get enough of it.....   

Fried Rice With Goose Liver Pate & Pine Nuts

Fried Rice With Goose Liver Pate & Pine Nuts
Although the Fried Rice With Goose Liver Pate & Pine Nuts tasted average, I could find no fault on the rice. It had a good breath of wok but I cannot taste the goose liver. Nevertheless, the rice was fluffy and delicious, with every morsel evenly coated with a sheen of golden egg yolk and the crunchy pine nuts does well by lending a nice texture and taste to the fried rice.
