If you seek a porky Chinese fare this CNY, a good recommendation and also a personal favourite of our family is 5 Sen5es. Expect traditional and luxurious CNY must haves for reunion meals set in an exquisite and zen environment.


Priced between RM1,388 to RM1,888 for a table of 10 and includes yee sang. For those who want something extra, there’s always Poon Choy or Treasure Pot to be added on to your reunion delight. 

Our reunion dinner with some good pals kicked off with yee sang. I must say that 5 Sen5es definitely thrilled us visually with their pretty yee sang shaped as a fish. Never mind that after we tossed, it was a state of mess. The Chinese believe, the messier the better and more auspicious the year will be for us.

Salmon and abalone to go with our yee sang and Chef’s special plum sauce proved to be a delightful and refreshing salad.  

Yee sang is also available ala carte. Priced between RM48 to RM238, take your pick of vegetarian, salmon, abalone yee sang and you can always add on additional ingredients.

No CNY meal is complete without a fish dish. Soon Hock steamed in soy sauce and fragrant oil is a simple yet absolutely delightful dish. A  bowl of white rice is highly recommended to go with the delicious sauce that bears the sweet juices of the fish.

The vegie tasted far superior from its humble look. Wolfberry, lily bulb, dried scallop and baby Chinese cabbage proved to be sweet and refreshing from the usual braised mushroom and vegetable dish that most restaurants would serve.

If you love claypot rice with waxed meats, the the slow cooked claypot rice with assorted imported premium waxed meats will have you clamouring for a second bowl. Fluffy rice made flavourful with the assorted waxed meats and a dash of Chef’s special sauce. The hubster had 3 bowls and proclaimed this his favourite waxed meat rice for this year’s reunion meals.

My favourite was obviously 5 Sen5es Big Bowl Feast Poon Choy. Make your order one day ahead. Priced at RM788 with Ten Head Abalone or RM988 with Six Head Abalone, each pot serves 10 persons. Its also available for takeaway including a porcelain pot for an additional RM100.

A pot of treasure and wonders awaits us as we dig into the pot. Ingredients includes whole abalone, dried scallop, sea cucumber, Taiwanese top shell abalone, dried oyster, jumbo tiger prawns, shitake mushroom, black moss, pro trotter, roast duck, free range chicken, stuffed inari beancurd, chinese cabbage and white radish. Delicious and impressive!

Dessert came in the shape of some gold ingots made of Japanese sweet potato nian gao coated with some desiccated coconut. It different from the usual nian you since its steamed and bears the lovely fragrance and sweetness of sweet potato.

The sweetened ginseng soup with glutinous rice dumplings was definitely my kind of dessert. I love the light herbal goodness in the slightly sweetened soup that went well with the glutinous rice dumplings. I reckon that this will be a hit with the older generation since ginseng is believed to be good for their overall health.
