WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Chinese -

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.
