It may sound impossible to enjoy a prawn dish for only RM1 but it is for real at the Si Chuan Dou Hua Chinese restaurant.
For this month only, diners who spend a minimum RM50 on a single receipt will be offered a serving of a special prawn dish at an additional RM1 only.
The dish, Jumbo Prawns with Chilli and Garlic in A Basket, is served in traditional Sichuan style.
The number of prawns added into the dish will depend on the number of customers who opt for the promotion.
Braised and cooked with chilli and other Oriental ingredients, the tiger prawns have that spicy flavour favoured by the Sichuan community.
A contest has been drawn up to coincide with the promotion where customers are required to answer questions related to the restaurant and the province.
Prizes up for grabs include RM100 vouchers which can be redeemed at the restaurant as well as accommodation packages at the hotel and its branches in Penang and Singapore.
The contest ends in the middle of next month.
Dining at the Si Chuan Dou Hua Chinese restaurant is made more memorable by the tea server who serves the Eight Treasures Tea using a 1m-long nose teapot.
The tea server from China integrates Chinese martial arts, dance and gymnastics moves to perform stunts like Nodding Phoenix and Boy Prays Buddha when serving tea.
The popular tea is blended with red dates, Chinese wolfberries, dried longan, chrysanthemum, rock sugar, dried lily buds, jasmine tea leaves and the mai dong herb.
The first Si Chuan Dou Hua restaurant was set up in Beijing where it quickly made a name for its authentic Sichuan dishes.
The master chefs then opened the first branch in Singapore in 1996 and the second in 2002 before bringing it to Malaysia in 2003.
