Here’s a look at some of the dishes:
The two (2) dishes that I enjoyed the most were the Sous Vide Free Range Chicken and Fresh Ginseng and the Steamed Salmon with “Virgin Soya Sauce” because the slow cooking process locked in the juice and flavour into both the chicken and fish making the flesh really tender and delicious! Great to see the culinary team using non-traditional Chinese techniques to cook Chinese style dishes! The Nian Gao was pretty good too!

Dorsett Reunion Buffet Dinner (18th February 2015) priced at RM118.00++ per person

Here’s a look at some of the desserts from the buffet which the girls happily ate!
