I always know that when an invite comes from the Renaissance Hotel KL, the end result is inevitably a food coma of sorts. Whilst I first mourned the passing of one of the last bastions of non halal dim sum places in local hotels, I was massively comforted by the outstanding quality of dim sums that were pork free, that we got to sample whenst they first turned over the new leaf, and went PORK FREE. Memories of those glorious golden yam puffs that melt in the mouth, those plump siu mais...the list goes on.
Anyway, until 29th August, there's a 50% promo off dim sums during lunch time from Mondays to Fridays, which is a damn good deal if you ask me. Or you can create your own 4 course menu at RM49.90 nett per person, for lunch OR dinner.
There are more than 30 types of dim sum to choose from, so knock yourself out.
For the set menu, there's a choice of 1 dish from each category of Soup, Fish and Poultry, Noodle, and Dessert, with a choice of add ons.
Other choices available are:
Assorted Seafood & Crabmeat broth
Sun dried seafood consomme
Shredded Duck Broth with Chives (We had this, but I can't find the photo, it was good)
Wonton Pouches in Consomme
FISH & POULTRY
Stir Fried Duck with Sesame Oil and Oyster Sauce
Grouper Fillet Sauteed With Portuguese Sauce
Stir Fried Grouper Fillet with Spring Onion & Ginger (the one we had)
Sauteed Chicken Strips with Dried Chilli
Stewed mee sua with fish dumpling (not a fan of mee sua, so definitely not my choice)
Seafood Ramen in superior stock
Pan fried Hong Kong egg noodle with enoki and chicken
Cantonese Wonton Noodle with honey glazed chicken & Veg (the one we had)
Signature glutinous rice balls coated with sesame
Herbal Jelly With Honey (we had this)
