This Chinese New Year, Oversea Restaurant is hopping into the Year of the Rabbit with joy, fortune and longevity with their rich traditions of Chinese cuisine.

Back by popular demand, the seasonal signature Chinese New Year includes dishes such as Yee Sang, Waxed Meat Rice, Prosperity Treasure Pot, Dried Meat and an assortment of confectioneries.

An executive group of forty chefs put the dishes together, bringing plenty of “huat” and abundance to you and your family.

Yee Sang

Tossing Yee Sang at Oversea Restaurant is a tradition itself.

What better way to usher in the new year than tossing this tasty and colourful appetizer salad high in the air while wishing each other well with auspicious sayings around the table?

A uniquely Malaysian dish, Yee Sang is a raw fish salad typically consisting of various shredded and pickled vegetables, salmon, jellyfish, nuts, powders, sauces, condiments, crackers and so on to symbolize good fortune.

Starting from RM78++, Oversea Restaurant has made adaptations to this Chinese New Year staple and is delighted to offer five different types of Yee Sang, so there is something for everyone.

The original Oversea Fabulous Fruity Yee Sang is served with Red Dragon Fruit Sauce for extra “Ong”.

At the same time, other Yee Sang, such as Yee Sang with Jellyfish & Korean Snow Pear, Yee Sang with Fresh Salmon & Korean Snow Pear, Yee Sang with Abalone & Korean Snow Pear, and Yee Sang with Abalone & Black Truffle are paragons for gold standards when it comes to tradition meets novelty dishes.

Oversea Restaurant’s Yee Sang uses only the highest grade ingredients for that fresh and crispy sweetness to stimulate your appetite and is available in half and entire portions.

Set Menus

Staying true to Chinese New Year traditions, there will be at least three meal sets, including 8 – 9 courses, available in all Oversea Restaurant outlets.

From RM 898++ for six pax to RM 3,388++ for 10 pax, the menus are put together by a group of executive chefs with more than 40 years of experience with all the auspicious dishes for each outlet.

All the set menu will be available from Chinese New Year till the last day of February, and each meal set comes with a box of Oversea’s Hong Kong Style Egg Rolls while stocks last.

Premium Dried Meat

Dried Meat or ‘Bak Kwa’, also known as rougan (肉干), is a dried savoury sweetmeat that traditionally takes the form of thin square slices.

Usually made from pork, it is one of the most popular Chinese New Year snacks, and you can find this in every Chinese household during the festive season.

At Oversea Restaurant, only the most tender and lean meat is chosen, marinated with Oversea’s secret recipe and grilled over charcoal rather than air-dried for a smokier flavour, making it a sweet and appetizing snack of all time.

Available at RM 78 per box, this Fujian snack has been adapted over the years to suit the local palate.

It has also shone in the global food arena representing Malaysia and received international accolades such as “International Restaurant of Chinese Cuisine” awarded by “The World Chinese Cuisine Association” as well as being recognized for outstanding achievement in the F&B industry at the 15th Asia Pacific International Honesty Keris Award 2017.

Unbeknownst to many, Oversea Restaurant also bakes its confectionery with freshness guaranteed.

This festive season, the confectionery includes Taiwanese Pineapple Tarts at RM55 per box, Oriental Muffin at RM38 for 18 pieces, and Hong Kong Style Egg Rolls at RM28.80 per box.

To satisfy the munchies one bite at a time, dig into the jars of delightful cookies but be warned, they are addictive. Once you start, you can’t stop.
