For this reason, The Resort Cafe at Sunway Resort Hotel and Spa, helmed by executive chef Peter Lee, has come up with the Auspicious Beginning themed buffet offering exciting festive gastronomical treats.
Diners can indulge in various types of celebratory Chinese delicacies on daily rotation.
There will also be specially curated set menus available until Feb 8, said Lee.
Seafood lovers will rejoice at the sight of Iceland oysters, sashimi and poached tiger prawns, to name a few.
Other notable dishes will include Chinese Spiced Venison Ribs with Green Chilli Dip, Tiger Prawns with Traditional Shrimp Honey Sauce, Yam Abacus, Braised Lion Head Ball with Fish Maw, Steamed Long Fu Pan Fish Head with Garlic and Ginger Chilli Sauce and Braised Homemade Tofu with Dried Oyster.
The Double-boiled Stuffed Chicken Wing with Fish Maw in Rich Chicken Broth was a good start to the meal.
The broth is cooked for six hours and the ginger in it lends a comforting aromatic element. The fish maw offered a nice, chewy texture.
The Prawns with Garlic and Alaskan Scallop Potato Puff, Braised 10 Head Abalone with Tau Kan and Dried Oyster, Steamed Red Coral Trout with Superior Soy Sauce and E-fu Noodles with Canadian Lobster Claws and Spring Onions are must-tries.
“Oysters represent good luck during Chinese New Year. The abalone is soaked overnight and braised for four hours,” said Lee.
