New Menu at Lai Po Heen, Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur

Soups are high recommended at Lai Po Heen

Ranked on one of the best Chinese restaurants among the 5-star hotels in Kuala Lumpur, Lai Po Heen further elevates one’s dining experience with new creations by Chef Ricky Thein. The new menu boasts good ingredients and uncomplicated flavours, creatively executed to entice diners.

Seven Spiced Scented Soft Shell Crab Rolls and Ginger Jelly

To start, we tucked into the Seven Spiced Scented Soft Shell Crab Rolls and Ginger Jelly (RM38). The soft shell crab was light and crunchy with a soft, flavourful centre. It was a good start to dinner.

Double Boiled Soup with Baby Abalone and Supreme Fish Maw

One of my favourite dishes at Lai Po Heen is the soup, and this Double Boiled Soup with Baby Abalone and Supreme Fish Maw (RM138) didn’t disappoint. I also expect it not to, considering the rather hefty price tag. Every spoonful packed flavour and aroma, and the abalone was of perfect texture.

Oven Baked Black Cod Fillet with Butter and Cheese Crust

The Oven Baked Black Cod Fillet with Butter and Cheese Crust (RM78) was my favourite dish that night. Butter + cheese = mouth orgasm. The cod was beautifully cooked and topped with a thick layer of butter cheese crust. If you’re a fan of butter milk crabs or prawns, you’ll totally dig this. I mean it.

Jasmine Tea Leaf Smoked Chicken with Ginger and Spring Onion Dip

Jasmine Tea Leaf Smoked Chicken with Ginger and Spring Onion Dip (RM38) was less exciting, because I had a similar version at Lai Po Heen before. But this was well executed and the dipping sauce was thick and full of oomph.

Seared Prawns with Spicy Lemongrass Sauce

Another dish I enjoyed was the Seared Prawns with Spicy Lemongrass Sauce (RM78). I thought the spicy-lemongrass flavour complemented the large prawns well. The latter was fresh, succulent and crunchy.

Stir-fried Vegetables with Honey and Crispy Preserved Olive Tree Leaves

The Stir-fried Seasonal Vegetables with Honey and Crispy Preserved Olive Tree Leaves (RM32) was also quite good. I liked how the vegetables remained crunchy after cooked, and the honey further enhanced the sweetness of the snap peas.

Chilled Durian Pancake

Dessert was not a new creative, but a hot favourite. Unlike some beauty pageant contestants (#foreverfake) that require facial enhancements and teeth fixing to look good, Lai Po Heen’s Chilled Durian Pancake (RM38) requires no fixing. It is perfect the way it is.
