Duck tongue, drunken chicken

Duck tongue, drunken chicken

Kuala Lumpur top hotels have one thing in common – their capability to outdo themselves on the dining scene, from scrumptious breakfast till delicious afternoon teas.

The very best of Shanghainese cuisine is brought to KL by one of the hypest hotels in Bukit Bintang : Shanghai restaurant by JW Marriott, aka the undisputed best place in town to enjoy dim sum in a sophisticated and grandiose setting.

Step into the red and gold hued setting from the 1920’s where a crowd of loyal locals and foreigners alike come to enjoy the finest hand made dim sum along with traditional shanghainese cuisine at its finest.

Unusual dishes are on the menu and a definite must try for the adventurous foodie. Start with the snack-size Duck tongue – a fine delicacy prepared perfectly, great opening for a lunch. Indulge in a moist Drunken chicken, taste the best in town (according to a very connoisseur expert) rice flour rolls with crispy duck. Of course the Xiao long bau (steamed Shanghainese dumplings) are a must try, juice and skin tightness wise reaching perfection.

Century eggs, red bean cakes and other marvelous dishes are on the menu – one bite will suffice for you to understand why Shanghai by JW Marriott is a KL institution and gets pretty busy for Sunday brunch.

It is also a big hit during the Chinese New year celebrations for a gastronomical journey in an auspicious red setting.
