I found a hidden gem to have my CNY gathering with Muslim friends and colleagues! Located in Melawati Mall, Golden Valley is a Chinese restaurant that offers sumptuous Halal Chinese cuisine. Usually, it’s pretty hard to find restaurants that offer Halal Chinese cuisine but I’m lucky enough to find one that tastes great too!
Halal Chinese New Year Set Menu @ Golden Valley, Melawati Mall
I’ve sampled their FORTUNE 富贵宴 CNY Set Menu that consists of 9 dishes and here’s a summary of what I had and what I think about them.
Snow Pear, Jelly Fish & Salmon Yee Sang – Tossing into prosperity is a must! I love the combination of fresh ingredients which gives it a lot of texture and flavors when being chewed. Crispy, crunchy, soft, altogether in a bite!
Fish Maw & Assorted Seafood Broth – The savory, flavorful soup is exceptionally delicious and it feels comforting to have it as a tummy warmer. The seafood add a light and fresh taste and texture to the dish.
Crispy Roast Duck Hong Kong Style – All of us were totally wow-ed by this dish. The skin was crispy and while the meat was juicy and succulent! The taste of the well-marinated duck meat in a mixture of spices, soy sauce and other seasonings was so good that everyone can’t help but to fetch for extra servings!
Steamed Sabah Grouper with Twin Mushrooms & Black Fungus – I love this steamed fresh grouper, the meat is smooth and tender with its natural flavors retained. Pairs well with mushrooms and black fungus too!
Fresh Water Prawns with Chef’s Special Sauce – Fresh, tangy and sweet prawn, I really enjoyed it!
Chinese Cabbage with Fatt Choy & Mushroom – Vegetable is a must-have for a balanced meal! As expected, fatt choy is not to be missed during CNY as it represents “wealth”. I have no complaints on this as the Chinese cabbage tastes naturally sweet and crispy when bitten.
Claypot Chicken Rice with Mushroom & Black Fungus – Tastes amazing with smoked flavor and aroma.
Lotus Seed & Red Bean Paste Pancake and Double Boiled Lotus Seed, Red Dates, Dried Snow Pear & White Fungus Soup – Can never go wrong with this combination to end the meal
Wait no more! Head to Golden Valley with your friends and family for a Halal Chinese New Year feast at Melawati Mall, KL!
