Food Review: Chinese Cuisine @ Yue, Sheraton Petaling Jaya

Hey guys! Been a minute since my last post. Things are slightly less hectic now that I’ve stopped my part-time hustle (for the good of my sanity)… BUT.  I’ve been using free time to catch up on gaming, lol. Not exactly productive. But I digress.

I went for a staycation at Sheraton Petaling Jaya a couple of months ago and got to sample the food at Yue, their award-winning Chinese restaurant that specialises in Cantonese cuisine. The decor is rich and elegant, and dinner was served in a banquet style, with dishes coming out one by one.

For starters, Pumpkin soup with scallop and cucumber. Due to its creamy nature, pumpkin soup can be cloying but Yue got the balance just right, while the scallop, enclosed in a ring of cucumber, was full of a natural, seafood-y sweetness.

The first entree was Roasted duck skin with black truffles and fresh fruits. This was a killer combo; so kudos to the chefs! The crispy duck skin had a melt-in-the-mouth layer of fat underneath, while the meat was tender and had none of the gamey flavour duck is notorious for. The bed of fresh fruit with a dusting of truffle was earthy, sweet, rich and refreshing at the same time.

Next came a Deep fried soft shell crab with cod fish and young mango. Soft shell crab tends to absorb oil when deep fried, becoming extremely greasy, but Yue does it justice. It’s crispy and crunchy on the outside, but the meat is still soft and flaky on the inside. The sour and tangy young mango helped to further cut through any greasiness.

The Pan fried salted egg chicken was a pleasant surprise, as I was expecting a heavy, buttery sauce. Instead, the salted egg, which sat atop a moist chunk of tender chicken meat, was lighter than expected and complemented the flavours beautifully.

Rounding it off with dessert is the chilled sour plum tea with gingko. A nice balance of sweet and sour which was light and refreshing, rather than a heavy dessert, was a great way to end a meal.

Individual set meals are available, priced from RM128++ onwards per pax.
