Review: Xin Cuisine @ Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur

**Non-Halal**


Xin

Xin Cuisine, the Cantonese restaurant in Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur, has been one of my firm favourite especially the dim sum. It's one of those good Chinese restaurants that had survived the time and I'm glad they're still in the groove. Well, it has been a while since we last went there though and Capt'n Hook decided to have dinner there.

Since it was a weekday, the restaurant is not very busy. Even if they are, service are still top notch. There was this on going ostrich promotion that period so I picked a Cantonese style spring onion and ginger hor fun (flat rice noodles) with ostrich (RM20) of course. The noodles were so nice full of wok hei! Loved the light starched eggy goodness gravy that clinged to the slippery smooth hor fun. The ostrich meat was done perfectly with each piece tender and smooth.

Strangely Capt'n Hook ordered something out of his norm which is a soupy seafood fried rice (RM25)! Perhaps it was a rainy night hence the soupy version? Anyway again I can taste the rice filled with wok hei which transfered to the soup as well. Albeit the rice is fried, the soup is not overly oily and it really loaded with chunks of seafood like fish, scallops, prawns and squid plus carrots, mushrooms, spring onions and asparagus! What a hearty bowl of comfort on a rainy cold evening...

We were filled to the brim, hence no desserts, just some oolong loong jin tea (RM6 per pot for two of us) to wash down our dinner. There were 5% Government tax and 10% service charge which brought our bill to RM58.65.

this place is only a 5-minute drive from my office, but have only eaten here once! :D
prices look really reasonable, considering it's a hotel outlet

Now, I am missing the hor fun. Perhaps I will cook it on Friday. :)

Oh my, I have not been to Xin Cuisine for ages! That was my family favorite dim sum restaurant, used to frequent there every Sunday. For convenience sake, we just dine @Reunion, BV2.

Yup! I had lunch here with my siblings the day after my wedding dinner.. had the peking duck and other dishes as well! We were completely blown off by the standard of the food. Sadly, that was the one and only time I ate there.. it has been more than 3 years now!
