A Taste of Super Foods at RUYI, Bangsar Shopping Centre, Kuala Lumpur

Diners stepping into Ruyi now have a chance to savour the first of Ruyi’s Eat Well Live Well dinners, which is available until 23 December 2019. It’s a collaborative effort with Cabana, KapowBalls and Kintry Artisan Food – all purveyors of healthy food.

Cabana is popular with their Acai Bowls and Smoothies using organic acai berries, freshly blended and free from refined sugars. Kintry is a home-grown Malaysian company specializing in healthy snacks made from scratch. Their top-selling halal artisanal snacks such as salted egg potato crisps, cookies and granolas are well-known in the market. Kapow Balls are guilt-free low-calorie dessert balls made from all-natural ingredients … yummy stuff like chocolates, dates, all kinds of nuts, almond butter, chia seeds, berries etc.

Working with these entities, the culinary team at Ruyi has curated a Chinese 6-course fine dining menu at RM168 per person (without cocktails) / RM198 per pax (with 2 cocktails) for those who would like to try something unique and good for their wellbeing.

Dinner kicks off with a refreshing Gin cocktail served in an earthenware bowl. We love the crunchy honey granola served in it – what a novel touch!

The Winter Melon Noodles look like jellyfish strands but once we bite into this, the burst of sweet refreshing juices tell us otherwise. With a light tangy citrusy dressing, it’s a lovely salad and we eat up every single leaf.

Soups at Ruyi is always the bomb … Chef James and his crew brew the most amazing nourishing soups which we always enjoy and can’t have enough. The Collagen Soup is fragrant with ginseng and the fishmaw and sea whelk give it that divine umami taste.

Sea cucumber and abalone have all the good nutritious and antioxidant elements for you. Power Protein indeed and when braised with truffle and acai, the good factors just doubled.

Lunar New Year Festivities take on an artistic scale at RUYI, Bangsar Shopping Center

Who serves Yee Sang with 28K gold? Talk about attracting prosperity, Ruyi ups the game by serving edible gold in their Yee Sang. Labelled “28K Golden Koi YU Sang”, it takes Masterchef James Ho about 20 minutes to assemble this beautiful creative platter. After all, this is Ruyi – where food takes on the forms of art and Chef James’ creative touches is the name of the game.

Central on the plate are two lively colourful koi fishes made of shredded carrots and radish swimming on blue pea flower-tinted rice puffs. In between the kois is a gold ingot, shaped using ginger and green carrots and dusted with 28K edible gold. All around these are the other accompaniment of pickled leek, mandarin oranges, pomelo, dried persimmon, cashew nuts, pickled radish and papaya.

It’s not surprising that the chefs at Ruyi make their own pretty “kuih rose” or “beehives” for the crunchy element of the yee sang.  They also add in their wickedly-addictive house-made crispy salted eggyolk fish skin to the platter.  Atlantic salmon sashimi in the form of appealing florettes and delicate bunches of sea caviar are the “sang” elements to this elaborate yee sang. Truth be told, this Yee Sang is really too pretty – we can barely bring ourselves to “destroy” the intricate ensemble. But toss it we have to, otherwise good luck and prosperity may not come our way. The portion is huge, more than enough for 10 people, trust me.

Besides this golden yee sang, there are several other versions on the menu, ranging from RM88 to RM938 (comes with a bottle of Dom Perignon Vintage Champagne & abalones!) per big portion.

Seafood soup is always a hit – the Emperor’s Pot can be served with either real or faux sharksfins braised with dried scallops, crab claw and scented with saffron.

More premium seafood in the form of “Boston Big Brother” will certainly impress guests. There’s lots of deep-fried garlic crisps clinging onto the lobster surrounded by succulent braised abalones and crunchy prawn crackers.

We like the use of dried seafood used for the 8-Treasure Duck, instead of the usual Chinese herbs. Abalones, together with dried oysters, chestnuts and salted eggyolks give the dish a deep umami flavor.

Harmonious Claypot Rice (RM48) with smoked duck, waxed meat, exotic mushrooms & taro

Kois seem to be the central theme at Ruyi this year. Besides the Golden Koi Yee Sang, the chefs here have also mastered the art of making “nian gau” in the shape of kois and filled with sweet red beans.
