Nestled in the premium Kuala Lumpur city area, Impiana KLCC Hotel is an exclusive and quiet hotel amidst the busy city life. Just three days ago, I was invited to a Chinese New Year Dinner at Impiana Hotel KLCC. To be honest, it was my first time to step foot in Impiana Hotel KLCC, which is only less than 10 minutes from the working place. Malaysians love festivities! It’s the time to try food of different culture at least to me. I spent approximately two hours to try most of the food served during the buffet dinner.
Before devouring the food, I explored the all-day dining restaurant, Tonka Bean Café & Delli for their Chinese New Year décor. All the food was too pretty to be eaten and I just loved how the CNY décor blended in with the presentation of the food. Please excuse my jakunness for it was my first CNY dinner buffet.
So, the Chinese New Year Reunion Buffet dinner is happening this 15th February 2018 from 6.30pm to 10.30pm at Impiana KLCC Hotel. The buffet dinner will feature special delicacies such as jellyfish with Szechuan paste and sesame seed, braised seafood soup with crab roe, fried tiger prawn with special soy sauce, fried chili crabs, deep fried lotus paste pancake. The dinner is priced at only RM148 net per person.
The God of Fortune graced the dinner greeting everyone from one table to another and handing over the ancient gold coin for prosperity. I was a tad bit too excited that I followed him around until the cooking demonstration by Chef Bustami Osman, Senior Sous Chef of Impiana KLCC Hotel began.
The bubbly chef with the witty God of Fortune by his side prepared the special menu for 2018’s CNY Buffet at Impiana KLCC Hotel – fried boneless chicken with black pepper soy sauce. The ‘magic’ sauce smelled so good!
Then, the time was set for the tossing of ‘Yee Sang’.
For those who are not familiar with the Chinese festivity, Yee Sang is a traditional dish comprises of thin slices of vegetables and other ingredients usually mixed together. The taste is enhanced by its special sauce.
With the God of Fortune already inviting all guests to the Yee Sang table, we stood up rounding the table to toss the ingredients high in the air with joyful exclamations of “Loh Hey”. Some were just chanting, “Ong Ong Ong” which means luck.
There are few selections of yee sang menu available such as jellyfish, soft shell crab, salmon, abalone and lobster which caters for 5 –6 pax. You can also take away the Yee Sang from 12.00 noon to 10.00pm daily to enjoy it at home.
