Yee Sang For Festive Chinese New Year 2019
YEE SANG BY DELICIOUS' CHEF TIMOTHY SEBASTIAN
In welcoming the festive Chinese New Year for the Year Of The Earth Pig this year, I had some of the most interesting dining experience tasting so many different versions of the must-have Yee Sang dish.
Counting down to my 13th LOU SANG, I was invited to Delicious, 1Utama (One Utama) to review their latest offering of YEE SANG together with a wide selection of local and Western favourites ushering in the auspicious and prosperous Lunar New Year. Read on...

Group Executive Chef Timothy Sebastian Posing With His Special Soft Shell Crab Yee Sang
Delicious Group Executive Chef Timothy Sebastian has put his vast culinary skills to curate his version of a special edition Soft Shell Crab Yee Sang infused with Nyonya flavours. It was good especially loaded with more than ten fresh ingredients such as Chinese lettuce (Sang Choy), radish, shallots, carrot, coriander, kaffir lime leaves, pomelo, ginger, crispy red and green yam, red chillies, scallions, and lime among others!
Soft Shell Crab Yee Sang
RM 40 (3-4pax)
RM 75 (6-10pax)
For me, this is one of the better-tasting Yee Sang I had among the many different variations I had reviewed for the past two months. The clever combination of the fresh ingredients used in Delicious's Yee Sang not only showcases Chef Timothy's creativity in coming up with ideas but also offers diners a fresh festive experience especially in a non-Chinese establishment.
Tossing into prosperity at Delicious, diners can choose between 3 varieties of Yee Sang starting from the Soft Shell Crab Yee Sang, Smoked Salmon Yee Sang as well as Fish Skin Yee Sang.

Chef Timothy said crowd favourites included Mee Goreng Mamak (RM 28), Roasted Pumpkin Salad (RM 25), and Classic Cheese Burger served with Angus Beef (RM 32). With over 20 years experience in the food and beverage industry, Chef Timothy draws his inspiration from classic dishes and reinvents, creating modern contemporary dishes exclusively for Delicious to excite your palate with different flavours and fusions!
Spacious & Comfortable Decor, Perfect For Gathering
Besides the crowd favourites, the restaurant also has likeable treats like pasta, burgers, sandwiches, soups, salads, and a few starters. Let's feast your eyes on the following dishes that I have tasted and check up on my top picks of the day too.
Great For Snacking ~ Addictive Salted Egg Yolk Crispy Fish Skin
Highly recommended to order dish for snacking. The addictive Salted Egg Yolk Crispy Fish Skin is what I called the 'Awfully Delicious & Sinfully Tasty' dish you must try at Delicious!
What's so special about this chicken sate dish is the sate peanut sauce that comes with it. The chef offered a housemade chilli dip and ordered special sate sauce all the way from the famous sate town in Kajang to ensure diners have a complete enjoyment when eating this local favourite.
Korean Fried Chicken Wings
Korean food lovers can try the Korean Fried Chicken Wings to satisfy your KPOP cravings. This dish is available with a choice of Gochujang or Honey glazed deep-fried chicken wings.
Beef Nachos Platter
An ideal snack to start with while waiting for friends or waiting for your mains to arrive is the Beef Nachos Platter - This is a sharing platter of Nachos with all the extras, Corn chips, Beef Chilli Con Came, guacamole, sour cream, cheese and Pico de gallo.
Roasted Pumpkin Salad
The Roasted Pumpkin Salad, a personal preference, hits all the right spots with its healthy ingredients with roasted pumpkin, rockets (my fave), baby spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, chick peas (also my fave), croutons and feta. The cute little black pearls adorning the salad is actually the amazing creation of Chef's little balsamic vinegar made looking like tiny fish eggs, just like caviar or black tobiko.
Moroccan Braised Lamb Shank
Not forgetting the meat-lovers, the Moroccan Braised Lamb Shank is an excellent dish to order for its generous portion at an affordable price. For RM 38, you get a whole piece of NZ Lamb Shank bathing in the chef's special Moroccan sauce served with vegetables.
Then there's the Baked Salmon, which is an excellent dish for those looking for a healthier option of having white meat instead of red meat.
Priced at RM 35, the Atlantic Salmon is pan-fried lightly leaving moist and flakey fish meat while the thin salmon skin is deep-fried till super crispy texture giving the diner a different tasting sensation when tasting the dish. It comes served with roasted potatoes and grapefruits reduction.
Mee Goreng Mamak
Haha... if you are at the shopping mall and suddenly craves for some Mamaks food, fret not! Delicious's offers one of the best Mee Goreng Mamak sold in a shopping mall now. This is one of the crowd favourites too as I was told.
A big price to pay for Mee Goreng Mamak, but for RM 28 a plate, this fried egg noodles comes loaded with seafood of prawns and squids, together with chicken, tauhu, bean sprouts, tomato and spring onions.
The Duck Confit is a tedious dish to prepare, so I was told. Chef explained that the duck meat is aged for 3 days to abstract the stock and using it as one of the bases to cook the pasta. The aged duck is then deep-fried to a crispy texture before adding onto the dish to enhance the flavour.
Try this if you are looking for something different and this particular dish have been given plenty of tender, loving care by the chef himself with so much effort in the preparation.
Aglio Olio Seafood Pasta
Aglio Olio Seafood Pasta features spaghetti cooked in the seafood bisque with prawns, mussels, white squid, chilli padi, olive oil and garlic. This is not your typical garlic and olive oil pasta dish. You can taste the flavourful sauce it's cooked in - just perfect for any seafood lovers!
Classic Cheese Burger
Chef recommends Classic Cheese Burger for those burger fans looking for a big meaty burger to savour.
Named the Classic Cheese Burger, the chef uses 150 grams - US Black Angus Beef Patty with 80% Meat & 20% Fat sandwiched between the sesame bun, topped with cheddar cheese, onions, tomatoes and lettuce. You can opt to enjoy it with the choice of garden salad or fries. I had mine with the lattice cut fries and it goes really nice with the accompanying sauces too.
Chocolate Lava Cake
If you are a lover of desserts, then you'll be thrill with their best-selling Chocolate Lava Cake. This heavenly dessert features a warm chocolate cake with an oozy centre of the supremely chocolatey sauce, served with vanilla ice cream. Watch my video for visual experience here:
