Chinese New Year Dinner

Chinese New Year is over and now I am posting about our family “lou Sang’ dinner at Unique seafood restaurant in PJ on the 7th of February . This huge Seafood restaurant ambience is akin to that of a bustling seafood market where customers can watch their preferred catch being weighed, cleaned and cooked to order.
Our very first dish is the salmon yee sang
Tossing for good health, good fortune, and good luck. with the situation of the world economy we can all only hope for the best.

The Yee Sang was surprisingly good with lots of shredded vegetables. Neither too sweet nor sour.

Here comes the whole lobster. Just look at the size of the lobster!! You choose to have it sashimi style to enjoy the natural freshness and sweetness of the lobster. It also comes with a pot of superior soup for some of us who prefer cooked lobster. It also comes with some fresh tofu, inoki mushroom and fresh vegetable. The soup was so good.

My second brother and the kids waiting patiently for the stock to boil.

My eldest brother and brother in law happily blanching the lobster for us.

The lobster was taken back to the kitchen, cut into small pieces and cooked with some creamy cheesy sauce. It was really good. The kids loves it!

The next dish, fresh steam ‘Soon Hock’ Really fresh and sweet.

Not too sure what is the name of this dish but it's fish paste stuff in chicken skin Top with some almond. Very fragrant and crispy skin. Pure Indulgence!

The next dish, baked fresh Scallops. Top with plenty of garlic! Really fresh!

Buttered Prawns. You can never go wrong with this dish. Very fragrant with the curry leaves and flavorful butter flakes. The prawns were so crispy, sweet and fresh.

Cat, I am the same too. All the food I request was tai pai thong food like CKT, Har mee, curry mee :)That is the food I miss and not big fish, big meat (chinese words)

Wow, lobster with creamy cheese sauce ! That's absolutely one of my 10 favors. Baked scallops ? Maybe I should try with bake version. I usually top it with lots of garlic as well as green bean threads (glass noodles) and steam. Believe or not, everyone grabs green bean threads at the first time as quick as they can and not scallops.
