As CNY 2023 rolls around the corner, Nobu Kuala Lumpur is introducing a Lobster Prosperity Platter along with five new Osusume desserts, available from 11 January to 5 February.

 I remember having so much fun every time the Chinese New Year season came by, as I knew it was a time to feast in the joyful company of close family and friends, along with the sinful desserts and snacks!

Inspired to reignite this moment of sharing good food and laughter with loved ones, we are proud to announce the development of this Chinese New Year menu.

The Taste Test

TRP was lucky enough to try their CNY Festive Menu this time.

Lobster Prosperity Platter (RM288++)

Suitable for 2 to 4 people, the Lobster Prosperity Platter serves a luxurious Lou Sang with the freshest ingredients from mixed strands of vegetables to juicy lobster bits.

The Lou Sang is paired with a sweet and sour Plum sauce that alleviates the crunchiness of the mixed salad. I love how the coriander leaves give such a great fragrant taste to the juicy Lou Sang.

Besides that, here are the five desserts that we’ve tried.

Bangers (RM55++)

The bangers look like, well, firecrackers. The bangers come in a red chocolate cylinder, with a layer of chocolate ganache and caramel filling. Besides serving it with almond crumbles, you can also ignite the decorative wick for some show-stopping videos.

Wagashi (RM45++)

The traditional Japanese confection wagashi is made from green tea paste and sweet potato paste. The pineapple-shaped wagashi has green tea paste in it while the red tanglong-shaped wagashi has sweet potato paste in it.

They’re both creamy, soft and not that sweet.

Prosperity Gold Bar (RM55++)

The menu is not prosperous enough if you don’t have gold, right? This gold bar is served in a white chocolate bar coated with gold dust. Inside it, there’s a layer of vanilla mousse and citrus jelly. Beside the gold bar, a Yuzu Kumquat Sorbet is served on top of a bed of coco crumble.

Mandarin Orange (RM55++)

This one is basically a dessert that looks like an orange and tastes like one too. Inside the orange chocolate exterior, there’s a layer of orange mousse, chocolate ganache and another citrus jelly. It is also decorated with a strong taste of yuzu gel.

Chestnut Martini (RM45++)

I’m not gonna lie. This is a fun and messy dessert to indulge in. The Chestnut Mousse is served inside a short martini glass and it’s topped off with a piece of thin chocolate with Cream Cheese Ice Cream on it.

The fun part is when you can pour the piping hot rice syrup onto the dessert and watch as the chocolate melts down and pulls in all the ingredients inside the glass.

The flavours and textures are quite unique and they’re not that sweet, which makes this an excellent dessert for those having a not-too-sweet sweet tooth.

The Verdict

Since this is my first time eating Lou Sang, I’d say this Lou Sang is definitely spectacular. Instead of the usual raw salmon that I’ve always heard about, this dish offers juicy lobster bits instead and the thick and sweet plum sauce combines the salad together magnificently.

Personally, for the desserts, I love the Mandarin Orange and Prosperity Gold Bar. The Mandarin Orange has this zesty chew and dark chocolate taste in it that I like. I also like the Prosperity Gold Bar, because well, it’s gold of how the strong yuzu and kumquat flavours can be softened down with the sweet and creamy taste of vanilla.

Malaysians know how highly Chinese New Year food is revelled within the country; a true celebration of history, happiness and love in a bite.

That is exactly what we want to translate directly to our guests with this festive menu – A Prosperity Platter and five Osusume desserts that perfectly encapsulates the essence of Chinese New Year, done the Nobu way.
