Cooking With Attitude at Lai Po Heen & Mandarin Grill MIGF 2013 Menu at Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur

The month of October is a month filled with gourmets and booze for all Malaysians. This month we have 2 big events where the whole month are celebrating the beer month Octoberfest and also the MIGF (Malaysian International Gourmet Festival). I am not going to talk about the Octoberfest. Here at Mandarin Oriental Hotel, the 2 renown Chinese Master Chef Of Lai Po Heen Ricky Thein

and

Chef De Cuisine Reto Webber has prepared 2 sets of art of their own covering lunch and dinner respectively.  I had the opportunity to be invited to try out their dinner sets which I find it is worth every single cents spent for customers. Top notch quality ingredients alongside with MO famous hospitality service and classy ambiance are the top reason for checking them out for private or business function.

Upon arriving, I was greeted with welcome drinks which you can either go for alcoholic Cosmo cocktail or the fruit punch for those who are not into booze.

Cosmo cocktail

Fruit Punch

The Chinese sets were accompanied by Chocolate Pralines which the leaf shaped one are nutty based while the round one were mint based. It was not overly sweet and top quality cocoa were used to prepare this.

Let start off with the LAI PO HEEN FESTIVAL DINNER MENU.

Dinner set are Priced at RM298++ [Without Wine]

Chilled Honey Smoked Hokkaido Scallops with organic vege for as the starter.

The whole dish were crafted in a wine glass like those old school craftsmen that built a ship inside the bottle. The dish alone are too nice and beautiful to be eaten. The glass do not sit on the bamboo directly. It is actually elevated and is all down to kinetic force to support the glass via the bamboo opening.

The hokkaido scallop are of the premium grade and huge. Besides that it is sweet and smokey in flavour the honey glaze does help to seal the taste within and give a slight crisp on the surface.

Double Boiled “Mingmu” Fish Essence

A ginseng soup double boiled in black chicken, fish maw and baby cabbage. The soup are pretty clear in color and taste is not too dense. It is a well balanced soup that are nutritious for replenishing lost vitamins or minerals on your body.

Australian Deep Sea Abalone braised in superior oyster sauce, runny egg yolk quail egg garnished with stir fried cauliflower. The tender abalone are prepared to perfection by Chef Ricky which is his forte. Abalone itself is tasteless and require a superior sauce to bring out the best out of this precious ingredient. The runny yolk quail egg add some oomph on the abalone which made it even smoother and creamier. For those who are new to abalone, the sauce is the most precious as all the flavors from ingredients were absorbed into the sauce.

Green Lime Sorbet paired with the chocolate pralines above to end the Chinese set.

Home made buns with salted butter.

Char Grilled Australian Wagyu Sirloin MS10+ & Guinness Braised Beef Cheek Angelotti

Smoked celery puree, roasted red chicory and black truffle greets the Mandarin Grill guest with a bang. Tender and melt in your mouth level 10 marbling wagyu sirloin done medium are a perfect choice for steak lovers. With Chef Reto’s touch on the piece of top notch quality ingredient with a master wagyu title this dish went to another level. The black truffle alone is enough to flavour the whole plate and make you want for more. Chef Reto said, there are upcoming truffle steak in Mandarin Grill.
