CNY 2015: Nook @ Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral

CNY, nook, Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral, yee sang,
CNY Reunion dinners doesn’t have to be the regular dishes  or even Chinese food. Nook @ Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral whips out an interesting CNY reunion menu. What I love about the set menu is that its familiar Malaysian favourites with a playful twist and its perfect if you don’t have  a big group of people to dine with. 


The complimentary Golden Salmon Yee Sang was one of the prettier ones that we had thus far. Shaped like a flower with glittery edible gold and its not quite the usual yee sang because Chef has included popping candies in the yee sang too. Love the cracking and popping sound when we tossed it. The sounds continued a little in our mouth too. A reminder of childhood joy of eating popping candies:D

Our dinner kicks off with Cured Salmon Kerabu served with Compressed Apple. A lovely symphony of sweet, savoury and crunch. Absolutely appetising!

The Chicken Soto Consomme proved to be a crowd favourite. A comforting chicken consommé with rice cakes, chicken strips, bergedil (potato cutlet) and peanuts.

Chef continues to amaze us with his rendition of Malaysian favourites. The Spinach Sambal with Crispy Tempeh is definitely my favourite from the set menu. A lovely vegetarian dish of creamy spinach and crispy nutty tempeh. A fiery touch awaits with the spicy samba hidden under the spinach.

Palate cleansing comes in the form of a Lime Sorbet. Its refreshingly good and I really dont mind it for dessert too!

Asam pedas is one of my fave dishes to go with rice. Nook's Silver Cod Asam Pedas is a luxurious version of the usual mackarel or stingray. Steamed and topped with an appetizing spicy asam pedas sauce served with salted egg, boiled eggplant and lady’s finger. Would have been lovely to serve it with some steamed rice so as not to waste any of the delicious gravy!

One of the best Sarawak Laksa in town is served at Nook. No surprise that this delightful dish makes its way to the CNY menu as well. Scallop Sarawak Laksa with spinach noodle. Aromatic and hearty, its not a surprised that many of us slurped our bowls clean.

Tumeric Nasi Lemak with Wagyu beef rendang. Sounds lux? Indeed it was. Every bite of the beef was a tender and hearty moment with aromatic fragrance of the spices. Served with rice and fruit chutney, this proved to be another crowd favourite.
