Lai Po Heen is one of the longest-serving Chinese restaurants in KL, which is evident to just how long Mandarin Oriental KL has been around as well. Unfortunately, you can’t toss to some good fortune and prosperity at its restaurant but you can still do it at home. Mandarin Oriental KL is offering five different types of yee sang, which can only be described as decadent at the very least. Salmon and vegetable snow pears are the popular choices but some of the more exorbitant options include Wagyu beef striploin, Australian two-headed abalone, as well as sea urchin and fish roe.
