fortune flavours the bold
As any successful card player will agree, you’ve got to spend big to win big. All the more reason, then, to host an extravagant Chinese New Year dinner at Resorts World Genting, which is guaranteed to bring you prosperity and good fortune in abundance for the Year of the Rooster.
From January 27th until February 12th, Genting Palace will offer a traditional yee sang with a luxury-flecked list of toppings such as Japanese tuna, Boston lobster, black caviar, and abalone. A no-expense- spared, eight course set menu for a table of 10, which features stir-fried Australian lobster and charbroiled sea cucumber with three-headed abalone, stands at RM 7,888. Those with large appetites might also enjoy a la carte additions like the smoky marinated Royal Mountain chicken or pumpkin soup with braised seafood and black truffles.
Not to be outshone, Imperial Rama – which showcases Chinese fine dining with traditional Thai influences – also has some delectable festive treats on offer. Make it a point to order their nourishing double-boiled cordyceps soup with mushrooms and conch, golden beancurd skins stuffed with crab roe, and steamed free-range chicken with peppery pork belly. The restaurant’s most lavish Chinese New Year menu (again, for a table of 10) offers delights such as lobster salad with roast suckling pig, and bird’s nest soup with chrysanthemum and ginseng, for RM 4,288.
