It’s a ‘go big or go home’ affair this Chinese New Year at The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur. From opulent in-room celebrations to exclusive private dining experiences, The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur is determined to welcome the auspicious symbol of the Year of the Dragon in an unforgettable manner. Delving deeper into its dining options, let’s explore The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur Chinese New Year Set Menu that is available till 24 February 2024 for both lunch and dinner courses.
The Chinese New Year Set Menu can be found at the hotel’s signature restaurant, The Brasserie; however, for a more intimate and sophisticated ambiance, opt for private dining rooms that are perfect for family reunions, corporate events and group gatherings.
To truly mark the beginning of the Chinese New Year festivities, there is no better way than engaging in the lively tradition of Yee Sang. At The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur, the key to its Premium Yee Sang lies in an undisclosed final ingredient, a cherished recipe that is passed down through generations by the family owners. Guests may elevate the experience with an array of additions such as Canadian lobster and jellyfish, shellfish abalone and crispy fish skin, or salmon and jellyfish. For those seeking a vegetarian option, a Vegetarian Mixed Nuts version is also available, ensuring that there is a choice for every palate.
The menu, meticulously curated by Executive Chef Cheong Boon Fei, showcases a range of traditional Chinese culinary creations crafted with premium ingredients that enhance the experience. Expect dishes like Braised Bird’s Nest Soup, Steamed Red Spotted Grouper Fish with Luffa Gourd and Dried Shrimp, Deep-fried Sea Prawns coated in a Golden Seaweed Crumb, and Braised Dried Oyster served with Black Moss and Bean Curd. The star of the menu, in my opinion, is the Fragrant Egg Fried Rice. Topped with a crab meat sauce and tobiko, the dish reaches new heights when accompanied by the house-made chilli paste.
For dessert, Chilled Osmanthus Tea with Water Chestnut and Peach Gum offers beneficial advantages that balance the body’s internal heat. Meanwhile, the Deep-fried Homemade Yam Nian Gao may be simple in its presentation but is a difficult culinary art to master.
The offerings don’t stop there. At the Astor Bar, raise your glass in a toast to abundance with exclusive Chinese New Year-inspired spring cocktails: Mandarin Campari Sour, Mandarin Mimosa, and the Jade Dragon—a particular standout crafted by The Macallan using The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old, served with caviar, crème fraiche, cured egg yolk and blini that adds a touch of finesse to the festive season.
That said, here’s to a new year filled with joy, success and good health. Cheers!
