Once again, I celebrated the upcoming ‘Year of the Tiger’ with another Chinese New Year dinner and this time at Tai Zi Heen Chinese Restaurant in Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur. The eight course menu created by Master Chef Ricky has many dishes with auspicious meaning contributing to longevity, reunion, perfection, good luck, promotion and health.

The classic dish and auspicious salad – Yee Sang

The hearty dinner started with the auspicious salad, Yee Sang which is a first dish in most  Chinese New Year reunion menus. We had the Ying-Yang Yee Sang (Tuna and Salmon Roulade). This Chinese raw fish salad which symbolizes abundance and prosperity is tossed with salmon, tuna, mixed vegetables salad, traditional condiments and plum sauce.

The delicious Yee Sang dish was soon followed by the Braised pearl shark’s fin with fish maw in supreme golden broth – This amazingly delicious soup with soft and tender fish maw and superior shark’s fin was my favorite dish of the night.

A big favorite in the menu


Braised dried oysters with fatt choy, Mexican soy clams, sea cucumber and wok-fried greens – This dish filled with sea-cucumber, dried oysters, sea moss and soy clams was robust with flavor.

Hi CK LAM, you sure take great pics.
And that Penang assam laksa looks fantastic. I sure miss this dish. Last ate in the ’80s.
And yee sang,? Fortunately we have three friends here who make this during CNY.

Though the HK friends never experience eating it.
You have a great weekend and best regards, Lee.

respect for your effort to share delicious food with everyone but a piece of advice to avoid shark pin.
Say, ‘No’, to shark fin soup

I wonder how many versions will we get to try this CNY? Maybe you can do a summary of all the diff types you tried at the end of CNY?

That’d be an interesting post, for sure! :)
