鴻運盆菜 Fortune Pot/ Poon Choy with Pumpkin Sauce

Of all, Tao’s Fortune Pot, or Poon Choy, gets double thumbs up for us, definitely highly recommended especially if you are pumpkin lovers. Besides the generous layers of quality items such as sea cucumber, dried oyster sea moss rolls, roasted duck, soy chicken, mushroom, dried scallops, fish maws, prawns, money bag, pomfret fillet, Hokkaido scallops, cabbage, broccoli, bean curd stick and yam, what caught our attention is the think-out-of-the-box pumpkin puree as the gravy!

The sauce itself is sealed with natural sweetness of pumpkin, prawn, crabmeat and chicken essence from long hours of boiling. Everything is exquisitely mixed and blended to denote delicate smoothness with no trace of sandy feel. so good that we can have the sauce alone with Jasmine fragrant rice.  Summergirl is so happy to taste Tao Intercontinental pumpkin sauce again after their Hot Pot promotion last year. By far the best pumpkin sauce base we found in KL-Klang Valley.

Deep-Fried Golden Mini “Ninko” bun served with Chilled Bird Nest Hawthorn, Snow Fungus, Peach and Aloe Vera 黃金年糕包伴凍燕窩雪耳蘆薈水蜜桃糖水

Serving suggestion for Nian Gao 年糕 , one of the Chinese New Year Must-Have, is getting more trendy nowadays too. We used to dip Nian Gao with just shredded coconut, or deep fried with yam and sweet potato. Chef Wong’s go beyond this with his very own version of Deep-Fried Golden Mini “Ninko” bun, enveloping chewy, sticky sweet Nian Gao within pillow soft bun and deep fried to golden brown for a crispy outer layer. Great dessert to end the meal!
