*Ying-Yang Yee Sang (Tuna and Salmon Roulade)*

I’m not a fan of Yee Sang but this Yee Sang turned out to be quite nice..I actually like Yee Sang to be a bit oily and this is it!

The amount of oil is just right to go with the salmon and other condiments..I know some people don’t like it to be oily because it’s unhealthy, in a way..

I don’t particularly like fish maw because of its gooey texture but it tastes fine in this dish with the generous portion of shark’s fin..

The golden broth complement very well with the seafood and it’s quite appetizing..

The cod fish is nonetheless tender and juicy..The thick meat is to die for and the ladies kept mentioning how smooth their skin will be after that wtf..LOL..

The interior design is not too far different from many other Chinese restaurants but Four Seasons is trying to accommodate smaller groups as you can see in the pic that most tables are for 2 or 4 pax..

For more people, bigger tables are available at the other section..

House of Tang [Non-Halal] @ One Bangsar, Bangsar

It’s already mid-January and Chinese New Year (CNY) is just a month away, falling exactly on the Valentine’s Day, Febuary 14th 2010..

I bet everyone has been busy spring cleaning and shopping for CNY clothes a.k.a red clothes or anything that is bright..

But one must remember that in our Chinese custom, eating good food is considered as a fortune or luck because a lot of people died of hunger in every other part of the world..

Being able to eat good food is a kind of fortune to us Chinese, hence we must appreciate food more..

So here I’m giving you an option of a restaurant for your family dinner during CNY..

It’s House of Tang, situated in one of the stretch of restaurants along One Bangsar in Jalan Ara, Bangsar..

The concept of House of Tang is to make you feel homely, with their homely decorations and also homely dishes..

One more thing, their food are all MSG-FREE~!!

So before we start to eat anything, it’s good to take few sips of hot Chinese tea to clear your taste buds and also your throat..

*Salmon Yee Sang with Crispy Shredded Treasures in Plum Dressing*

To usher the CNY 2010, one must not left out the Chinese custom food for CNY which is Yee Sang..

For Chinese, Yee Sang is not a neccessity but it’s somewhat a practise with a hope to bring in fortune, wealth, and health..Yes, very typical Chinese indeed..

The restaurant has served this Yee Sang (?????) with the right amount of oil and sauce which is not too dry nor too wet..

I’m not really a fan of Yee Sang but the fresh salmon here makes me want more!

The Shark’s Fin Soup (?????  ???????) is quite smooth and it’s not very thick..A lot of people tend to take lesser shark’s fin soup during a meal because the thick broth makes one feel very full..

The texture is just nice which allows us to continue on with our feast..

Continue on with more than 10 awesome dishes for your CNY family dinner..Also do download the menu for CNY and regular days at the bottom of the entry..
