From Salt Baked Chicken, Steamed Water Prawn in Spinach Puree with Chinese Wine to Stewed Pork Belly with Special Sauce, Steamed Chicken with Minced Pork wanton and Chinese Cabbage in Broth, Braised Pork Ribs with Red Yeast Rice, each speciality is rest assured, delicious!
Stewed Pork Belly with Special Sauce 鍋燒醬爆肉
We especially love the Stewed Pork Belly with Special Sauce. Balanced amount of lean and fat meat, wrapped with great chunky texture, wok-fried with chef’s special sauce to coat a thick, sticky sweet layer onto each piece of pork belly, instantly flavour up the entire dish. We can have two bowls of rice with only this.
Braised Pork Ribs with Red Yeast Rice (with Steamed Bun) 紅谷口琴骨
Braised Pork Ribs with Red Yeast Rice is good too, but calls for a contrast texture with Stewed Pork Belly with Special Sauce. Instead of being chewy, the pork ribs are deep braised, resulting in mellow soft bites. Further dressed with a layer of Shanghai-style sauce that is clearly lighter, less greasy, accompanied by a faint hint of red yeast rice aroma.
All the five food selections we tried in Xin Cuisine are memorable, and has won approvals from regular guests to Concorde Hotel KL restaurant too. Do check out the newly-introduced Xin Cuisine Set Menu. They are much more affordable that you thought of, as a set of lunch or dinner are priced at only RM80 nett, suitable for 2-3 persons.
