CNY 2015: Tai Zi Heen @ Prince Hotel & Residence KL

Foodie Trail, Tai Zi Heen, Prince Hotel and Residence, CNY, yee sang,
Tai Zi Heen remains one of my fave pork free Chinese restaurants in Kuala Lumpur city centre. The dishes may seem a tad simple to some folks but its actually very memorable and more often than not sets off memories of homely food that my late Grandmas whip out when we are home for CNY.

I love yee sang as a general rule. When its served with an assortment of seafood, its a big bonus there! Four Seasons Prosperity Yee Sang is served with butterfish, jelly fish, salmon and tuna.

One of my fave reasons to visit Tai Zi Heen is for their amazing soups. Slow double boiled with carefully chosen ingredients for taste and health benefits. Our double-boiled chicken soup is an exquisite one with whole abalone, dried scallops, bamboo pith and vegetables. Slurrrrrrp!

I like how the fish is presented here. Its a tad fusion in a way but its absolutely delicious and I believe that the baked salmon fillets with honey and onion ring will satisfy picky eaters too. Tender parcel of salmon with savoury soy honey coating is absolutely appetizing. Served with some crispy onion rings, I hope that this makes its way to Tai Zi Heen's regular ala carte menu after CNY.

A CNY must have will be the braised Japanese sun-dried shiitake mushrooms with dried oysters and fatt choy. It might not look like a pretty dish but its taste makes up for its looks. Do request for some white rice to go with this dish. Its such a waste to ignore the rich gravy.

Wok-fried rice with diced lobster, tobiko and bonito flakes were absoluetely fabulous. Full grained rice with lots of flavour from Chef's choice seasoning and enhanced by the diced lobster and tobiko. Luxury is every mouthful.

Dessert at Tai Zi Heen is always impressive. This year, Chef Michael scores to marks for dessert! The durian mochi was delicious and is filled with real durian. The best would have to be the crispy deep-fried sesame balls with salted egg yolk custard. Yumminess in every ball with sweet savoury goodness of salted egg yolk. Love how the custard flows out! Absolutely auspicious!
