Noble Mansion @ The Plaza, Jaya 33

January 25, 2013

The Oriental Group keeps expanding: this years entry to its restaurant roster is Noble Mansion, likely to be a popular pick for Lunar New Year merriment.

Noble Mansion sits on the first floor of Plaza 33, the new block beside PJs Jaya 33; soon, Kampachi will open in this building too.

Noble Mansion is meant to look like "a modern reinterpretation of a traditional Chinese mansion," with sections labeled Bamboo Courtyard, Grand Hall & Terracotta Rooms.

Shunde specialties are the highlight, focusing on fresh seafood, pork & poultry: the three come together in this serving of lobster, chicken & pork stomach in spicy sauce.

Staggeringly chunky-meaty, far exceeding our evenings protein requirements.

Braised whole superior fish maw in imperial sauce. Gotta love the grandiose descriptions on Chinese restaurant menus.

Sizzling claypot abalone & frog meat. Executive chef Justin Hor is the man to thank for this interesting recipe, befitting The Oriental Groups reputation for top-flight fare.

Liver sausage, remixed & reinvented into a sticky-sweet "char siew roll."

We love liver sausages; Noble Mansion fulfilled our plea for them to be served on their own. RM15++ for two, the cheapest plate of our orders.

Wine is available too, but only by the bottle. Havent seen this Aussie "Lackey" brand much.

Its intriguing that The Oriental Group embarked on its 10th restaurant at this venue, considering it already runs Oriental Pavilion in Jaya 33. Looks like business is booming.
