Lai Po Heen’s prime location adjacent to the Petronas Twin Towers and overlooking the gardens of KLCC, affords diners a satisfying view while feasting on nourishing Cantonese cuisine.
Go for the dim sum, which is served for both lunch and dinner. The dim sum menu boasts of about 25 premium steamed and fried items as well as soups, chicken and beef dishes, congee, rice and noodles.
There are many favourites here, and each one tends to have a little Mandarin Oriental twist to it. For instance, the popular steamed prawn and water chestnut dumpling. Soft, juicy and tasty, it is topped with a touch of gold leaf. Thin slices of baby abalone crown the steamed seafood and chicken siew mai, providing the dish with contrasting flavours. The chicken feet are cooked to the best tenderness possible and flavourfully spiced. Other popular dim sum dishes include fish balls, yam dumplings and sesame balls.
Diners who opt for dishes from the à la carte menu can choose from high ticket items such as double-boiled bird’s nest, abalone slow cooked with mushrooms and fish maw, and live fresh seafood such as fish, prawns, lobster and crab which are available in a variety of preparation styles.
