Sharing a sumptuous meal with family and friends


DINING is undoubtedly one of life’s greatest pleasures, all the more so when it is something shared with family and friends.

Yuk Sou Hin Chinese restaurant at Weil Hotel in Ipoh has prepared a special menu this month for this very purpose, aptly called the YSH Family and Friends Set Menu.

All you have to do is gather friends and family, head over to Weil Hotel and choose from the well-planned menu designed for groups of four, six or eight. The first two options offer a combination of six dishes, while the menu for eight has an extra dish.

Each menu, priced at RM168 nett (4 pax), RM238 nett (6 pax) and RM438 nett (8 pax) respectively, come with soup, dessert and either rice or vermicelli offering, aside from the other main dishes of the course. The price is also inclusive of Chinese tea.

Starting with the menu for four pax, there is braised spinach puree soup with bamboo and crab meat, deep-fried crystal prawn with salted egg yolk, sweet-sour chicken with pineapple, steamed bean curd with egg white, minced chicken and mushroom, fried rice with duck meat and Chinese pancake with red bean paste for dessert.

The six pax menu also has a poultry dish, prawn offering, bean curd plate and dessert, all prepared in a different way from the earlier menu, while the carbohydrate option is braised rice vermicelli with grouper fillet, bitter gourd and black bean sauce.

As for the eight pax menu, it includes Yuk Sou Hin’s signature smoked duck with lychee wood, which is one of the best smoked duck offerings I have had so far in Ipoh.

Diners can rest be assured that each dish in the Family and Friends Set Menu is cooked to perfection and served with aplomb. It is available for both lunch and dinner every day of the week and reservations are recommended.

Aside from this promotion, the restaurant also has its regular menu comprising signature favourites, including the above- mentioned smoked duck, double boiled chicken soup with abalone and stir-fried asparagus with lily bulbs, yellow fungus and black truffle oil, to name a few.

A must mention here is the cheese tart, a new offering of Yuk Sou Hin. Available at RM3.60 a piece for dine-in, takeaway packages are in boxes of six or 12 pieces. Light and fluffy with melt-in-the-mouth pastry, it is just the right mix of sweet, creamy, cheesy goodness. A perfect touch for dessert, or right in the middle of your meal, if you so wish.

Yuk Sou Hin’s dim sum breakfast and lunch from Monday to Saturday is between 10.30am and 2.30pm, while on Sundays, dim sum is served between 8am and 11am. Lunch is served between 11am and 2.30pm. Dinner throughout the week is from 6pm to 10.30pm.

Kindly call Yuk Sou Hin at 05-2082103 for reservations.
