unnamed (2)The sky was the limit when Bali’s first Ah Yat Abalone Seafood Restaurant tossed a plate of food into the air, as part of the ancient ritual of Yee Sang plate tossing to welcome the Chinese New Year.

The celebration was a particularly auspicious occasion for Ah Yat, following its launch in Bali last November at RIMBA Jimbaran Bali, the new sister hotel of the award-winning AYANA Resort and Spa.

The yee sang plate was laden with salmon, shredded vegetables, spices, sauces and condiments. Ah Yat’s Bali Chef, Cheung Kin Kau, and RIMBA General Manager Roger Habermacher used large chopsticks to toss the yee sang up in the air, creating a colorful shower of food, to the delight of guests joining the celebration. It is believed that the higher the food goes, the more prosperous the year ahead will be. The ceremony followed a magnificant Lion Dance performance, which started in RIMBA’s ark-shaped lobby and unnamed (3)continued to Ah Yat’s lobby.

Chef Cheung brings more than 20 years’ experience to his role at Ah Yat’s flagship Bali restaurant, which adds to the more than 25 Ah Yat restaurants Asia-wide, from Shanghai and Beijing to Jakarta, Singapore and Bangkok. The Ah Yat brand is named after the Hong Kong-based founder-chef, Yeung Koon Yat, also known as “The Abalone King” due to his expertise in transforming this sea creature into a mouthwatering delicacy. Chef Yat is a member of Le Club des Chefs des Chefs, the world’s most exclusive gastronomic society, a Knight of the order of the Agriculture Merite, and an Honorary Chinese Cuisine Euro Toques President of Asia.

Ah Yat’s Bali launch highlights the world-class dining concepts at RIMBA, the 282-room hotel named after the Indonesian word for ‘forest’ due to its setting on 8 hectares of gardens and tree-lined tracks within AYANA Resort and Spa. Complementing RIMBA’s eco-chic design by the prestigious WATG Architects, Ah Yat embodies old-world Chinese hospitality and cuisine, in a modern, stylish setting matched by impeccable service from waitresses in bright cheongsam dresses. It caters for up to 300 guests seated and offers 10 stylish private dining rooms, making it the perfect choice for wedding receptions, private parties and corporate functions.

The extensive menu features traditional delicacies alongside popular dishes that cater for a wider range of tastebuds. At Ah Yat, adventurous diners may enjoy the Birds’ Nest and or the Abalone while dim sum lovers may opt for Weekend Yum Cha with a selection of 50 different types of dim sum.
