Yuk Sou Hin at WEIL Hotel – Chinese New Year 2015

Yuk Sou Hin, a Chinese Fine Dining Restaurant helmed by the Master Chef Chung Ho Shi has just opened its door in Ipoh. Yes, you read it right. They had just opened in the heart of Ipoh at Weil Hotel. For the coming Chinese New Year celebration, Master Chef Chung had come out with a few set menu specially designed for a table of either 4 or 10 persons. The price for 10 persons starts from RM1188++ and above per table. Depending on the number of dishes and the ingredients used, the price varies for different sets.

Each Chinese New Year set menu comes with Yusheng. Different set comes with different ingredients. Read more about their yusheng here.


After our Salmon Yusheng, next came the Double Boiled Chicken Soup with Ginseng and Abalone. Double boiling is a simple technique used where food is cooked slowly within a closed container. This results in a very clear and intense broth. Each diner is served with a bowl of double boiled chicken soup with an abalone each. If you love soup, this should be the one you should try.


Next, we were served with Yuk Sou Hin’s Wok Fried Prawn with Celery topped with Cashew Nuts. The ingredients Master Chef Chung used are premium ingredients. Look at the size of the prawns used. They are just huge.


The next dish is one of my favourite at Yuk Sou Hin. It is their Steamed Pearl Garoupa or Grouper with Superior Soy Sauce. Grouper doesn’t come cheap and I wouldn’t be surprise if the whole fish costs more than RM300.00. With Master Chef’s expertise in Cantonese cuisine, this dish is easily one of the best out of the other dishes. read more »

Chinese New Year 2015 – Salmon Yu Sheng – Yuk Sou Hin at WEIL Hotel – Ipoh Hotel

Yuk Sou Hin at WEIL Hotel

Yusheng, Yee Sang or also known as the Prosperity Toss is commonly consumed on or before the Chinese New Year. Yusheng was believed to have been created by the Cantonese community in Singapore and Malaya. One interesting fact to note is that the people in Hong Kong or China do not practise this at all. Only those in Malaysia and Singapore does this prosperity toss during the Chinese New Year.

I am very fortunate to be able to toss my first prosperity toss at Yuk Sou Hin which is located in WEIL Hotel, a hotel in Ipoh this year. We had the Salmon YuSheng with its main ingredients of raw salmon fish served with shredded vegetables and fruits with a variety of sauces and condiments.


Each ingredients when mixed together, new year greetings are conveyed to every diners by the server. Fish symbolises abundance and excess throughout the year. If prawns are added, it symbolises happy all the time. Each ingredients are added one at a time and thereafter mixed together by all the diners.


There are a few types of yusheng available at Yuk Sou Hin. The one I tried was their Salmon Yusheng. Yuk Sou Hin also serves Salmon and Fresh Fruits Yusheng; Salmon, Live Prawn and Fresh Fruits Yusheng; Salmon, Ikan Parang and Fresh Fruit Yusheng; and Salmon, Abalone and Fresh Fruit Yusheng. Yuk Sou Hin’s yusheng are available together with the set menu and ala carte.


These amazing sets of yusheng are prepared by Yuk Sou Hin’s chef Chung Ho Shi who is a Master Chef in Chinese Cuisine, a Hong Kong citizen. Master Chef Chung Ho Shi had received professional training from top chefs in numerous renowned Cantonese restaurants.


For those of you who are in Ipoh and are interested in trying Master Chef Chung’s dishes, just head over to Yuk Sou Hin at WEIL Hotel, which is located beside Ipoh Parade (now owned by Li Ka Sing). This is one Chinese restaurant which you don’t find very easily in a small town like Ipoh.

1600 Pandas MY in Malaysia

The 1600 pandas have just finished their tour in Malaysia. The 1600 pandas are created by an artist Paulo Grangeon who had created these cute pandas by using recycled materials and papier-mache. These scultures of 1600 pandas are created to raise awareness for the conservation of the endangered species.


The 1600 pandas was initially created from recycled materials in 2008 for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and it had since travelled around the world from France, Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Malaysia. The 1600 sculptures was created to mark the dwindling panda population in the world which is roughly about 1600.


The 1600 pandas tour first started from Dataran Merdeka Kuala Lumpur and went round the Peninsular of Malaysia and finally ended its tour in Publika, Kuala Lumpur. The movement had managed to collect about RM240,000.00 for the conservation of pandas.


The lucky adopters would be able to collect their pandas today from 3pm onwards. The movement to raise awareness on this endangered species does not end here and must be continued for the preservation of these cute pandas.

Kuala Lumpur Malaysia Pavillion

Rocku Yakiniku Barbecue Restaurant

Rocku Yakiniku, a Singapore franchise barbecue restaurant has just opened its door at Pavillion, Kuala Lumpur. I am honored to be invited to its post opening a few days ago. I would like to take the opportunity first to thank Rocku Yakiniku for inviting me.

Before I move on to the food, let me just share with you the concept of Rocku Yakiniku. Rocku Yakiniku is a casual, yet edgy Japanese BBQ buffet restaurant. It is infused with live and modern entertainment – delivering brand new concept of “restaurtainment” to Malaysia. What “restaurtainment” means is that it is an entertainment restaurant.


At Rocky Yakiniku, customers will get to enjoy the variety of shows such as music performances, magic shows and game shows. These quality performances and modern live entertainment are available from Wednesday up to Saturday. The performances for each day are different and customers can enjoy different entertainment on different days.


I was told that this place was actually built specially for those who love to take pictures. Customers are allowed to open the gate and take pictures behind the gate. Do not ask me why it was designed this way as I do not know why. I suppose that they wanted something different, that’s all.


A menu slip is given to each table and the list of ingredients you can choose from are clearly shown there.


They have beef, pork, lamb, chicken, seafood and etc. Before I move on further, let me just brief you a bit on the buffet price. ROCKU are open for lunch and dinner. For lunch, each adult only need to pay RM32.90++ for a 100 minutes buffet lunch which starts from 11.00am to 5.00pm.


For dinner, the price for each adult is slightly higher, which is about RM49.90++ for 100 minutes. If you exceeds the 100 minutes, additional RM9.90 applies for every 20 minutes. All children eats for half the price of an adult.


Of the three things – (beef, pork and seafood) we ordered, I like the beef the most. It was very fresh and it was sliced very thinly so that it doesn’t become hard when it is overcooked. It is not easy to control the fire as we are using charcoal fire. Hence, the meat should be sliced thinly.


An array of side dishes are also included in the buffet. You may choose anything you want here. They have salads, fried rice, noodles, chawanmushi and etc.


The following are some of the pictures I took from around the restaurant. As you can see, ROCKU loves their samurai and almost every corner you will see the samurai murals.




They even have comics of samurai cartoons shown all over the restaurant.
