For authentic Chinese food, Oversea Restaurant never fails to satisfy one’s appetite. Known for their rich traditions of Chinese cuisine, the beloved eatery is highlighting their Hong Kong Style Waxed Meat Claypot Rice and Prosperity Treasure Pot this festive season. The Waxed Meat Claypot Rice (priced at RM138++ for 6pax and RM168++ for 10pax) will set mouths watering thanks to its distinctive aroma from fragranced glutinous rice and cured meat. But more importantly, no reunion would be complete without the Prosperity Treasure Pot that comes with 16 premium ingredients to bless your family with “huat” and abundance.
Speaking of huat-ness, Oversea Restaurant produces some of the best Yee Sang in town. Out of the 5 types of Yee Sang available, we’d highly recommend the original Oversea Fabulous Fruity Yee Sang (served with Red Dragon Fruit Sauce). It’s not only refreshing to the palate but also very flavourful, making this an easy standout from the other options in the market.
In addition to their existing outlets in Klang Valley (Jalan Imbi and Bandar Baru Sri Petaling), Oversea Restaurant is also opening a brand new outlet in 1 Utama Shopping Centre this month called Oversea Express 1U. It’s a casual dining spot that can cater to 20-24 pax, especially for those looking for a delicious, quick to go meal.

Celebrate this CNY with a mixed offering of Chinese and Western, delightfully combined by Kenny Rogers ROASTERS. Customers will be able to enjoy a delectable Fortune Chicken Chop meal supplemented by some Crispy Chicken Rolls, Honey Glazed or Sweet & Spicy Spring Rolls, and an “Ong-Lai” (Pineapple) Muffin. It will certainly be a warm, hearty and healthy meal for the family!
Knowhere Bangsar’s Shaolin Pisa
How about breaking away from tradition to enjoy some pizza for Chinese New Year instead? If you are craving some chewy, cheesy goodness, we suggest checking out Knowhere Bangsar’s offerings. They have a created some Shaolin Pisa(s), a variety of pizzas that pay homage to the Chinese cuisine while staying true to pizza itself.
With fancy names like Kungu Salmon, Gongbau Hustle, and Youyu Kingdom, and even fancier ingredients like grilled calamari, Kam Heong, buttery prawns and sambal spicy fish balls, Shaolin Pisa certainly sounds like it’ll make your taste buds dance!
