This post is brought to you in part by CapitaLand Malaysia Mall Trust – The Mines Shopping Mall.

Where best to spend Chinese New Year than surrounded by friends and family, and sitting down in front of a delicious meal? But where to eat is another question. Fortunately, The Mines shopping mall in Seri Kembangan has a number of dining options for a prosperous CNY celebration:

“Ong Lai” Fish

Esquire Kitchen has specially prepared a CNY menu for all to enjoy. It contains a dish called ‘Ong Lai’, which means ‘Luck comes’; a positive and welcoming phrase for the Lunar New Year. But another translation for ‘Ong Lai’ is pineapple and this is reflected in the fish dish: the sweet citrus sauce (yin) complements the crispy fried fish (yang).
