CNY 2016: Youmiqi Cuisine

Youmiqi along Old Klang Road is definitely one of the best CNY menu that I have experienced this year. A lovely mix of familiar CNY dishes and delicious Cantonese Shunde influence.

Take your pick of 6 menus. It starts with a RM488 menu for 4 persons and the most expensive menu is RM1,988. The menu consist of CNY must haves and Youmiqi's signature dishes. While waiting for your meal, enjoy the complimentary appetizers.
Appetizing pickled cucumber while we wait for dinner to start. A tad spicy so watch out for the chili bits but it really works wonders to get the stomach juices ready for the feast that awaits us.
Chicken feet with a lovely herbal aromas of dongkuai to it. Absolutely tasty!

Here's a peak at some of the very yummy and definitely memorable dishes from a few of the CNY menus.
Abalone and Salmon Yee Sang
A very juicy and colourful rendition of yee sang with purple cabbage, cucumber, radish etc. Topped with whole peanuts and sesame seed for a lovely nutty bite. Shunde influences with lots of ginger
and garlic.
Loads of ginger and if you are not a big fan of ginger then you can request for them to remove some of the ginger before tossing. I love ginger so I have no complains:D
Fried Noodle Fish with Salt and Pepper 
Simple preparation with salt and pepper. Deep fried white bait fish with a crispy batter while the flesh is still moist making it a delightful and addictive dish. 
The Roasted Standing Ovation
This is one of Youmiqi's signature dishes. Cirspy skin and moist meat. Traditionally eaten as is those the restaurant would slice it and plate it for diners. Great on its own or eaten with some side house sauce made from the juices and marinade from the roasted chicken.
Braised Broccoli with Sea Cucumber
Crunchy broccoli that goes well with the braised sea cucumber and black fungus. Simple but absolutely delightful.
A flaming wok cooks before you. Quite a performance of sorts. Remember to snap pictures of video the whole cooking procedure!
Stewed Wok Ocean Grouper, Prawn, Sea Cucumber, Roasted Pork and Fu Chuk 
This is another signature dish at Youmiqi not to be missed. A wok full of yummy goodness. Delcious pan fried ocean grouper, prawns, clams, sea cucumber, fu chuk with some tummy warming ginger, garlic and coriander cooked with a hearty broth. Boiled then a little chinese wine is added at the last part thus the flaming action!
Hot broth being poured into the wok before its covered and cooked before you.
While our host scoops up the goodies for us, the aromatic flavours of the ingredients
make us salivate.
Prawns and fish in one dish to fulfil the requirements of happiness and abundance for the new year. But even if its not CNY, this is one dish that I will definitely return to savour.
Delicious goodness. None of the soup was wasted even though when we have finished the ingredients. On a normal occasion, I will definitely be having a bowl of rice with this soupy delight.
Mix Fruit with Scallop
A modern take at Youmiqi with assorted fruits and scallop. Not a dessert but certainly a refreshing dish after all the rich savouries.
The Golden Nestum Bun
Savour this while its warm. Soft bun filled with creamy Nestum cereal and creamy milk custard. I would have loved an extra bun!

Youmiqi is located along the busy Old Klang Road and right before Valencia Hotel (on your left as you head toward Mid Valley). Keep to your left after you pass the Buddhist Association / Temple. There's parking options in front of Youmiqi or at the hotel.
