  • Sumo

CNY is here in real soon! Have you start tossing Yee Sang and cheers with your friends and family? I am pretty excited with CNY but also nervous at the same time, because I haven’t start preparing anything! Ok, cut my crap and let’s follow me to…

Li Yen

The award-winning Cantonese restaurant that is located in The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur has specially curated the Lunar New Year feasts to welcome the Year of Pig. There will be an exquisite selection of menus with signature dishes from Li Yen available for lunch and dinner.

I am honoured to be invited to Li Yen’s CNY food review session. I got to sample their delicious dishes as well as had my first lou hei with familiar faces! Thank you Li Yen and Ritz Carlton for arranging this!

Do not leave without their Lap Mei Fan – Steamed Clay Pot Rice with Chinese Waxed Meat 瓦煲臘味飯 ! This is always the must have traditional dish during Chinese New Year; made with Chinese sausages specially flown in from Hong Kong, this dish requires up to 45 minutes to prepare for the flavours of the vegetables, Chinese herbs and meat to infuse into the rice leaving a distinct and rich flavour.
