BONA FIDE CHINESE CUISINE AT LE MEI
Step into Le Mei, at Le Meridien Putrajaya, and let your senses be stimulated by iconic Chinese delights. This new hotel, which officially began receiving guests in August 2016, boasts of one of the most authentic Chinese eateries in the area. Restaurants offering halal Cantonese cuisine are few and far between in town, thus making Le Mei a rare gem.
The gorgeous space marries contemporary and classic elements associated with China’s rich heritage and culture. Art enthusiasts will take an interest in the wooden panels shadowing the entrance of the restaurant – a replica of the ones found in Putrajaya’s Malaysia-China Friendship Garden.
A team of highly experienced service and kitchen professionals, under the leadership of awardwinning Chef Michael Wong ensure an exquisite dining experience. Dim sum is served daily and swiftly carted to your table. Encased in a translucent skin, the juicy har gao or Crystal Jade Shrimp Dumplings are a fine example of Le Mei’s classic dim sum, whereas the Black Truffle Shanghai mini dumplings are only one of Le Mei’s many premium house specialties.
Pair surf-and-turf specialties such as Australian lobster and whole barbecued Peking duck to experience the best of both worlds. Vegetarians are not excluded and may partake of Le Mei’s wide selection of meat-free delicacies, such as mock abalone with bamboo pith and braised vegetarian shark’s fin soup.
End your meal on a sweet note with tong sui such as hot almond cream served with sea olives and young coconut or double-boiled bird’s nest with ginseng and dried longan. Bonus: There’s plenty more on the menu that warrant return visits!
