I had my first lou yee sang at Ti Chen, Saujana Golf & Country Club. Fresh, succulent salmon with a variety of freshly julienned vegetables and colourful crispy yam strips, peanuts, crackers and many more, topped with a delicious concoction of plum sauce and sesame oil.
Absolutely beautiful, absolutely auspicious!

If you’re not a salmon person, you could also choose to have abalone, jellyfish or even a vegetarian version. Price of the yee sang dishes start from RM38.
# – Tossing yee sang, higher the better. HUAT AHHHH!
Ti Chen recently underwent a refurbishment and what a transformation it has made!
# – Entrance to Ti Chen.
# – For those that can’t read chinese ;)
The new look is a breath of fresh air – modern & elegant and yet still very oriental. Plush seatings dotted the establishment with luxurious wooden panels segmenting the space for more privacy and large windows allowing a lot of natural light in.
# – The waiting area is comfortable.
# – Part of the dining area.
Of course, the view of the golf course was also very welcoming. Green, calm and tranquil.
# – Good view.
As for the food, Ti Chen did not disappoint at all.
# – The Roasted Chicken with Dong Guai was divine. With crispy aromatic skin and juicy, flavourful & silky flesh. Even the chicken breasts were tender, something I believe only a very skillful and experienced Chef could achieve.
# – The Stir-fried Prawns with Seasoned Salt was so good, I had more than one helping. The prawns were so crispy I could practically devour the entire thing – head, shell and all.
# – I really enjoyed the Steamed Red Snapper with Superior Soya Sauce too. The fish was fresh & flaky, with the delicious soya sauce delicately permeating the flesh. It’s a very clean-tasting dish, tasty and healthy all at the same time.
# – Next on the table – Braised Sea Cucumber with Fish Maw, Dried Oysters and Fatt Choy. The fish maw was of premium quality so they are very different from those that are normally deep-fried into puffs. According to the manager, this kind of premium fish maw is very good for the health of the lungs and for people with asthmatic symptoms. I of course, had quite a lot of them…hehe. Flavoursome and not at all cloying. Absolutely luxurious & befitting of a celebratory meal.
# – Of course, chinese new year must eat rice also so always have rice in life :) This is Chef Special “Loh Mai Fun”, basically glutinouse rice steamed with dried shrimps wrapped in aromatic lotus leaves. The rice was cooked just right, it was neither grainy nor too pudgy (for lack of better word). I absolutely enjoyed it, it was really delicious eaten with the Braised Sea Cucumber with Fish Maw, Dried Oysters and Fatt Choy too.
# – We ended lunch with a soft mochi filled with red bean paste. The skin was thin and the filling was not too sweet. It was a nice finale to a superb lunch.
