WHEN life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Sheraton Petaling Jaya’s Yue Chinese restaurant is taking this adage to heart by adapting to the movement control order and its restrictions on dine-in to offer a takeaway reunion dinner menu for Chinese New Year.
Although the MCO could be lifted in time for the celebrations on Feb 12 and 13, it is still uncertain if groups can dine at restaurants again. As such, a specially designed takeaway menu is available for those planning to enjoy a sumptuous meal in the comfort of their home.
The restaurant is offering a Chinese New Year takeaway menu for two to five persons, from Jan 27 to Feb 14.
The Happiness set is a five-course menu and is suitable for up to three persons.
It consists of main dishes such as Stewed Garoupa Fillet with Eggplant and Spicy Black Bean Sauce in Claypot and Wok-fried Chicken with Dried Chillies and Szechuan Peppercorn.
Also included are Braised Sea Cucumber with Homemade Beancurd and Braised Black Mushroom with Fried Fish Maw and Broccoli. Rounding off the set is Fried Rice with Chicken and Shrimp.
The five-course takeaway set is priced at RM238nett.
The Opulent set menu is a six-course meal ideal for up to five persons.
This set comes with Chilled Fresh Fruit Prawn Salad with jellyfish and Deep-fried Garoupa Fillet with Thai Plum Sauce.
The chicken dish offers Guangzhou Half-roasted Chicken with Pumpkin Seeds.
The set also comes with Braised Dried Oysters with Sea Moss, Broccoli and Sea Cucumber and Homemade Beancurd with Chinese Spinach and Dried Scallop Sauce.
The Yue Fried Rice with Shrimp, BBQ Chicken and Fish Roe is included in this menu, which is priced at RM368.

Gift boxes containing tarts, crispy mini spring rolls with prawn floss, Yue golden roasted cashew nuts with Himalayan salt, and signature double Valrhona chocolate cookies are also available.
Each box is priced at RM118 but those who buy two or more boxes can get them for RM108 each.
The gift boxes can also be paired with a bottle of 2018 red wine from Spain (Sangre de Toro) for RM188 or RM178 for those who buy two boxes or more.
Guests who purchase any of these takeaway items between now and Feb 14 with a total of RM1,000 in accumulative receipts, will receive a complimentary one-night stay at Sheraton hotel.
In the event the MCO restrictions are lifted before Chinese New Year, the hotel plans to open up the private rooms at level 3C.
Here guests can make reservations for up to 50 persons.
The rooms will be decorated based on the Chinese New Year theme for guests to indulge in the festive mood.
The Yue Chinese restaurant has three sets of menus for dine-in, priced at RM2,388, RM2,688 and RM3,188.
