WITH dining restrictions imposed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, restaurants are compelled to adapt to changes to survive.
A good example of a restaurant that has gone with the flow is Oriental Express at Plaza 33 in Petaling Jaya.
It serves Hong Kong-style comfort food that is tasty and satisfying.
The latest addition to Oriental Group’s restaurants opened its doors with a timely takeaway set menu just as the third movement control order was announced in the state.
Busy adults wanting to settle family mealtimes on a workday or those missing hawker fare due to the dining out restriction will find this restaurant’s takeaway options an ideal and convenient solution.
The chef has curated a menu with various types of food that will suit those with a taste for Chinese cuisine.
The highlight is the BBQ Platter which comprises a serving of Hong Kong Style Soy Sauce Chicken and a portion of BBQ Char Siew.
Both dishes are succulent, flavourful and juicy.
There is also a bowl of Fresh Prawn Wanton Soup that comes with five plump dumplings.
A bowl of Fragrant Oil Rice and a serving of Rice Egg Noodles are included in the set, to complement the barbecue platter and Wanton Soup.
There are also two claypot rice varieties that come with the set, which are Chicken with Mushroom, and Pork Ribs with Preserved Vegetables.
Both are quite similar in taste, so each family member can choose their preferred flavour.
Lastly, there is the ultra-comforting Roast Duck Congee to give diners a home-like feel.
It is laden with a generous amount of shredded meat.
All the above is priced at RM99 and packed neatly in an insulated food delivery bag to preserve freshness.
One can add on to this from a selection of barbecued meats, rice, noodles, congee, fresh dumplings, soups, appetisers and desserts available.
The BBQ Platter will surely be a hit and an extra serving will not go to waste.
