Tantalising delights for the taste buds at Hotel Nikko

Oriental: Loh with his selection of Valentine’s Day dishes at Toh Lee Chinese Restaurant.

THIS year’s Valentine’s Day will be extra special for lovebirds as more choices are available if they choose to celebrate at Nikko Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

The hotel’s Toh Lee Chinese Restaurant has designed two four-course set dinner menus themed Sweet Heart and Romance, priced at RM138++ and RM168++ respectively.

“Both menus offer value-for-money dishes that have a blend of western and oriental styles in them,” said executive sous chef Loh Chon Hor, who designed the menus with Chinese cuisine chef Chan Chong Yan

The Sweet Heart menu starts off with the Deep-fried Sichuan Minced Chicken wrapped in Filo with Hot Bean Sauce as the appetiser and ends with a simple Macha Pudding filled with Red Bean Paste topped with Giant Glazed Dates.

Nourishing: The Double-boiled Dried Seafood Soup with Baby Abalone in Chicken Consomme.
For the Romance' set, Loh featured his latest creation Baked Cod and Scallops with Ramen in Yam Cream and Garlic Oil.

“Instead of using spaghetti I substituted it with ramen to give it an oriental touch,'' said Loh.

The Yam Cream was made by steaming the yam before blending it with butter, flour and cream.

The set ends with Chilled Avocado Cream and Sago topped with nuts and served with Pumpkin Biscuit.

Couples who prefer Japanese food can head over to Benkay Japanese Restaurant, which will be dishing out its Romeo and Juliet set menu.

The five-course set menu has plenty to offer but diners will be tempted with the Shark’s Fin Chawan Mushi and Wagyu Beef Teppanyaki taken with Teriyaki Sauce topped with Wasabi.

Sweet touch: Macha Pudding filled with Red Bean Paste topped with Giant Glazed Dates.
To end the romantic evening, Japanese chef Ito Yasutoshi recommends his White Sesame Seed Ice Cream.

The set priced at RM288++ comes with two glasses of champagne.

Besides the two restaurants, the hotel’s Cafe Serena Brasserie will also be offering a Valentine’s Buffet Dinner from Feb 10 to 14 priced at RM100++ per person.

The Valentine’s Day dinner at all three restaurants starts at 6.30pm.
