Noble Mansion @ The Plaza, Jaya 33

The Oriental Group keeps expanding: this year's 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 PJ's 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 evening's 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 Group's 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. Haven't seen this Aussie "Lackey" brand much.

It's 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.
Entries on other Oriental restaurants: Noble House (Sept. 2009), The Ming Room (Dec. 2010), The Han Room (Jan 2011)Maju Palace (Feb. 2011) & Oriental Viva (Jan 2012).

Noble Mansion,

  1. Pork liver sausage? Ooo...would love to try! In my younger days, in Kuching, I had char siew pork liver with a bit of pork fat stuffed inside. Very very nice!!!!

    I wonder if they have any at those roadside cocktail stalls in KL - all the insides of the pig on toothpicks - you eat and then they count your toothpicks...and then you pay. They're called lok lok, right

    1. Suituapui: oops, actually i think it's duck liver sausage that we had at this restaurant. but i love pork liver too, especially in the form of satay, which is what we had in malacca, heh :D ooh, it's been years since i last had lok-lok. i have fond memories of munching on lok-lok, especially the quail eggs, beside the lok-lok vans in cheras, in puchong :D

    1. Timing: probably not, actually! It's quite a large-capacity restaurant, and not many people know about it yet, since the building it's in is still partially under construction =)

  6. Love the awesome protein fix there. Certainly my type of meal though I think the hubster will certainly go gaga over the liver sausage.

  16. OMG i work at Jaya 33 and I have not been there. Well, it was opened when I was in London and thus you beat me to it! The reason why they opened another outlet next to each other is to drive out competition from other chinese restaurant operators. Smart eh?

    1. Eiling: ooo, nice working location, quite accessible to lots of eateries in petaling jaya! Ahhh i hadn't thought of that reason. Brilliant! I guess their closest competitor in this neighborhood might be Unique Seafood, in section 16... But ya, now they have section 14 all to themselves! :D
