Li Yen, the award-winning Cantonese restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton,Kuala Lumpur has specially designed Lunar New Year feasts to welcome the Year of the Pig. The culinary team has put on a fine display of culinary artistry in the creation of the exclusive set menus, alongside a seasonal selection of delicate dim sum ideal for gatherings with family, loved ones and colleagues.
An exquisite selection of menus with traditional delicacies and signature dishes are available for lunch and dinner, showcasing the best of Cantonese fine dining. Prosperity Yee Sang with an option to include salmon, tuna or abalone adds a ritzy twist to the traditional festive toss.
Guests can select from three menus curated specially for lunch which feature dishes such as Deep-Fried Meat and Minced Prawn Roll and Steamed Dried Oyster with Sea Moss from the dim sum selection as well as Double-Boiled Abalone Soup with Chicken and Dried Scallop, Chicken Simmered in Bouillon, Roasted Duck, Deep-Fried Glutinous Rice Cakes with Yam and Stir-Fried Prawns with Asparagus and XO Sauce.
