Lai Ching Yuen Chinese Restaurant | Grand Millennium Hotel - XiaoShi Ba Special Asian Bar Snack Menu @ Jalan Bukit Bintang Kuala Lumpur

Lai Ching Yuen Chinese Restaurant
Serving Up Tasty Bites
XiaoShi Ba 

Posing With Chinese Executive Chef Terence Foong

The Japanese like to drink their sake with Yakitori after hours while the Westerners prefers their beers with buffalo wings, fries or salted peanuts. Creative Executive Chef Terence Foong of Lai Ching Yuen Chinese Restaurant at Grand Millennium Hotel Bukit Bintang Kuala Lumpur was given a special task to create a special Chinese snacks menu which will go well with the pairing of any alcoholic drinks.

Live Cooking Station By The Bar Counter

Given the task, the Chef Terence Foong set out to create the Xiao Shi Ba (snack for the bar) in total; 12 new sophisticated dishes served in “tapas” bite sizes dishes, freshly prepared special snack fusion dish that can be ordered and cook ala-minute right in front of you from the bar while sipping your favourite drink.

OOTD Shot Prior To Tasting

Fried US Fresh Oyster with Tangy Sauce 
My Top Choice From XiaoShi Ba Menu

Fried US Fresh Oyster with Tangy Sauce 
RM 12 per pc

Here are the dishes that you can also order as an appetiser if you wish to. The first dish is the Fried US Fresh Oyster with Tangy Sauce. The oyster was coated in a batter for frying and is served with a topping of citrusy refreshing sauce.

Although I'm not always a great fan of fresh oyster but I find this dish really delicious as it's fresh and succulent for the refreshing sourish-sweet sauce added extra zest and kick to the bite. 

Australian Scallop Wrapped in Bacon 
RM 18 per pcs 

We have eaten quite a number of dishes that are wrapped with bacon, but to have an Australian Scallop Wrapped in Bacon is a lovely change. Paired with a tasty sauce with the smoky salty aroma of the devilish bacon, this is a real treat to our taste-bud. We can eat a few more of these anytime.

  Crispy Bean Curd With Chef Yu's Special Powder

Followed by the Crispy Bean Curd With Chef Yu's Special Powder. The concoction of the of the special powder consists of dry shrimp with dry chilli powder. It has a nice crust feel and upon biting into the bean curd; soft melt in the mouth texture of the bean curd with a slight fragrant of the light spicy dry shrimp.

Braised Pork Belly Mini Sandwich 
RM  12 per serving

Next is the special Braised Pork Belly Mini Sandwich. The sandwich is made with a wrap Man Tao and in it the special thin slice of braised Pork Belly with spring onion. Love the sauce that came with it.

  Salt and Pepper Tofu Squares
RM 12

Next is the in-house made Salt and Pepper Tofu Squares. A very simple dish that has the square Tofu smothered with salt and pepper before being fried to a soft crisp.

Pumpkin Fritters
RM 12

Another vegetable fritters that was dished out is the Pumpkin Fritters. These smashed pumpkin fritters are served with a special Butter Sauce with Curry Leaves. We like the taste of the butter sauce which has a milky and strong aroma of the curry leaves which blends well with the sweet taste of the pumpkin.

Soft Shell Crab and Vegetables Fritters
RM 28

For the next dish aptly named Soft Shell Crab and Vegetables Fritters, the chef uses the Soft shell crab which is mixed in a batter with spring onion, julienne radish and yam. 

Salted Egg Yolk With Crispy Fish Skin 
RM 18 
For fans of Salted eggs yolk, this dish should be interesting as it is paired with fried fish skin. The fish skin is fried to a nice crunchy and added with the special egg yolk sauce. The Salted Egg Yolk With Crispy Fish Skin is an addictive snack but I think it could do better if chef uses the salmon skin  instead as it will turns out crisper for the salmon skin is much thinner in texture. 

 Man Tao With Chilli Crab Sauce 
RM 12

After that; we had the Man Tao With Chilli Crab Sauce (RM12.00) - the Man Tao are in-house made and is fried before serving with a sweet spicy chilli crab sauce. 

Sweet Spicy Chilli Crab Sauce

Chinese Pork Sausage Corn Dogs 
RM 18

Coming up is the Chinese Pork Sausage Corn Dogs. For us, we find this a unique combination to have a fried Chinese Sausage as we usually eat the Chinese Sausage either by steaming or frying it but have it covered with a batter to be fried was something new to us. Find it rather unusual but guess it good to nimble on with cold beers. 

Lotus Root Chip 
RM 12

You probably have come across Nacho Chips but to have this Lotus Root Chip is a challenge to your taste buds. The lotus root is cut to a thin piece and battered with tapioca powder with a light sprinkle of salt and sent to the fryer. Should be eaten hot when still crisp.

Chinese Black Pepper Snails 
RM 18
Next is the Chinese Black Pepper Snails. Snails are usually served with Cheese and Garlic which is flamed but the chef uses these snails with a special black pepper sauce, we like the taste of the sauce but somehow find it difficult to be paired with the taste of the snails. Try it if you are adventurous!

So all in all, these are the XiaoShi Ba ~ Asian Bar Snack new and latest offering from Lai Ching Yuen. If you are around Bukit Bintang and yearns to have some special snack food (not the norm) with some cold beers or a glass of wine, you might like to give a try on these snacks at Lai Ching Yuen Chinese Restaurant, Grand Millennium Hotel!
