Braised Vegetarian Fin Soup with Shanghai Style Crab Meat Soup XO 蟹肉齋翅
Steamed Wild Patin Buah with Salted Fish & Touchu, Chili and Congee Broth 豆醬粥辣椒蒸河八丁
Flaky patin fish meat, steamed to perfection and dressed in salted fish touchu, chili and congee broth. Quite spicy but enjoyed the fiery kick that leveled up the overall flavours of this dish.
Simmer Abalone Cube with Sea Cucumber and Mushrooms in Abalone Sauce 鮑角腐皮肉
We had have quite a number of CNY menu that served in a similar way when come to putting together sea cucumber and abalone. All are lovely but we’re happy to see Chynna Hilton KL is tweaking these popular Chinese New Year premium ingredients in its own way, especially on the braised sauce – thick in consistency, flavourful with subtle tomato flavour.
Stir Fried Korean Pear with Vegetarian Meats & Sea Moss 蓮子齋肉發菜炒雪梨
Summergirl’s favourite dish on that night. It is vegetarian! Mocked meats tasted like real chicken cubes, meaty but is actually made from soy bean. Stir fried with Korean pear for juicy, crunchy texture.
Stir Fried Fragrant Fried Rice with Sausage, Char Siew wrapped with Lotus Leaf 荷葉叉燒腸子飯
Great last savoury dish for our CNY meal in Chynna Hilton KL before going to dessert. Fragrant fried rice beautifully flavoured up with Chinese sausage and char siew, laced with aroma of lotus leaf. A little oily but tasted so good. We couldn’t resist but finishing a whole bowl each of us, reserving “eat clean plan” for tomorrow. Haha.
Chilled Carol Weed with Ginseng and Wolfberry 人參枸杞珊瑚草
Dessert in Hilton CNY menu 2017 is the best among all we had tried. Chilled carol weed sweet soup with whole ginseng in it, and we never expect texture of wolfberry is taken into attention too – soft but remained crunch, really nice.
Apart from Chinese New Year menu at Chynna, diners can also visit Vasco’s Restaurant at Hilton lobby level for special CNY buffet lined up with auspicious-sounding food like steamed fish with seamoss, stewed chinese cabbage with oyster and fatt choy, wok fried pan mee noodles among others.
