Have you heard of the expensive Empurau fish from East Malaysia? It’s priced at around RM1,000 per kilogram, and weighing at a few kilograms, the Empurau is no ordinary treat. The fish is sought after even overseas.
We bring up this fishy fact in relation to COVID-19.
Due to the pandemic, borders closed and lockdowns have impacted the demand abroad for he Empurau. Which basically means, now is the time you should make a reservation for Empurau at possibly, its most affordable price.
The Cantonese cuisine restaurant Ming Ren Xuan in Avenue K has seized this opportunity to offer diners a discount of up to 45% for the Empurau fish. Doing so also helps the restaurant and diners support the local fishing industry, particularly the Sarawakian fishing community.
Ming Ren Xuan unveiled the specials at a media luncheon, where the restaurant’s owner Dato’ Sri Alvin Ang shared more details with the crowd.
“In order to guarantee the freshness of the fish served, the fish are caught daily and air flown from Sarawak to be delivered to the restaurant.”
The media luncheon was attended by notable guests including Tan Sri Richard Cham, Puan Sri Louise, Dato’ Sri Stanley, and Ms Nina Kho Siew Ching.
Ming Ren Xuan Chef Dixon and Chancellor of The Jurade of Saint Emilion for Malaysia & Commanduer D’Honneur de L’Ordre du Bontemps, Mr Chris Low specially design a menu paired with wine from the restaurant’s extensive wine list. Each dish was introduced with a paired wine to bring out and complement individual flavours.
The first 50 guests who book a table will receive a Ming Ren Xuan Gold Membership, entitling them to a 10% rebate off their bill, coupons worth RM500, and invitations to special events organised by Ming Ren Xuan.
The dining offer is available from September until 30th November 2020, and limited to five tables per day.
