Chinese New Year Menu at Celestial Court, Sheraton Imperial KL

I have always been quite fond of Celestial Court, having visited a couple of times in the past couple of years. If you haven’t been, make sure you check out their weekend dim sum buffet (now priced at RM98++ per pax). And having sampled their CNY menu last year, I know that Chef Vincent Loo will not disappoint this year. So I invited my daughter/band mate Vicky with me to toss our first Yee Sang of the year.

The signature Yee Sang With New Zealand Swordfish and Netherland Arctic Char Fish

It’s now customary to have Yee Sang for CNY and I always love to see creativity with Yee Sang ingredients because you know, after a while every Yee Sang starts to taste the same. Here, we see a couple of unusual ingredients: Swordfish (pronounced without the W by the way), and Arctic Char Fish.

Hello! My name is Arctic Char and I come from the Netherlands.

Netherland Arctic Char Fish? Sounds fancy! Mr Google tells me it is closely related to Salmon and Ocean Trout, hence the similarity in facial features and the colour of its flesh. Tastes rather similar too.

After pouring everything into the plate along with auspicious wishes, we were ready to toss. The higher you go, the better! Needless to say, our table was the noisiest, thanks to yours truly, Mr Fatboybakes and Miss Rebecca Saw.

Despite having been to quite a few CNY review, I have managed to miss out on Poon Choi and that was finally rectified this year. Celestial Court offers a Premium Treasure Pot featuring a total of 18 ingredients.

Celestial Court’s Premium Treasure Pot (RM888++)

Each ingredient here is cooked separately and then meticulously arranged in layers, and this signifies abundance in the coming year. It’s fun fishing out different ingredients and make sure you taste the superior stock which has been infused with all that surf and turf components.

My treasure plate.

There are abalones, scallops, dried scallops, sea cucumbers, prawns, sea asparagus, roast duck, roast chicken and various vegetables. Each component is cooked perfectly too, I think my favourite would have to be the juicy prawns and the super tender sea cucumber.

Wok-heated Prawns with Nutmeg, Asparagus and Smoked Chicken

This is such a pretty dish with all that vibrant colours. I am a lover of Asparagus so this instantly grabbed my attention. Interestingly the prawn is cooked with nutmeg, which imparts some sweetness and its distinct pungent aroma to the prawns. The prawns were crispy and I didn’t mind the slight dousing of mayo (my inner kid approves). The smoked chicken induced a round of discussion as KJ insisted it tastes like duck, but I have to agree it’s very well smoked with a nice bite. I’ll say this is my favourite dish of the night, and Vicky agrees too.

Stir fried scallops with pumpkin, asparagus and celery served with Macadamia Nuts

More Asparagus and I certainly won’t complain. I like how clean this dish look, and each component tastes of their natural sweetness. My favourite would probably be the pumpkin, and I thought that adding Macadamia nuts is a decadent touch.

Chilled Earl Grey Syrup with Hasma, Snow Fungus and Black Dates

Never one to pass up an opportunity for controversy, I very quickly pointed out that Hasma has something to do with Frog’s reproductive organ, and google further confirmed that it is indeed Frog’s fallopian tube. Who discovered this?! Anyway, hasma is considered a delicacy and claims to replenish vital essence in the lungs, kidneys, and improving skin complexion. I guess it doesn’t hurt to try. By the way, I had half the refreshing syrup before reading the menu and when Cheng Yi heard “Earl Grey” he literally jumped. Heard that he had a sleeplessness because of this. Hah!

Thank you Shirley and Youhe for another fabulous meal!
