My friends didn't even bother to look at the menu. It's amazing! They knew which were the ones we have to order and the ones they have reservations about. It was also a good thing that we have the very helpful manager guiding us on what to try for lunch that day. How lucky of us! Well, I was dining with two foodie celebrities so guess that wasn't much of a big surprise. :P
Let me just say that everything was DELICIOUS! I can't really pinpoint which one I like the most as everything just left a really good and lasting gastronomical experience for me.
This just got to be the classiest hakaw that I've ever had in my life! Imagine enjoying these delicious shrimp dumplings with gold flakes on top. The shrimp was succulent and crisp just the way I like it. The wrapper was just perfect -- not too thin, not too thick.
I've always been the kind who was never crazy over XO sauce simply because I'm not a fan of anything spicy. However, after seeing this from Leslie's blog entry, I knew I just have to try it. She was right, it was indeed bursting with flavor and I just love that my lips weren't glistening with oil as it normally would whenever I'd have something fried.
Oh dear, the moment I had a piece of the squid, I felt my heart skip a beat. It was divine! The squid was crunchy and was fully coated in the creamy and delicious salted egg batter. Give me this and a bowl of rice and I'll be one happy woman for life.
Another XO-infused dish but unlike the radish cake the flavor here was a bit weak. The beancurd roll was yummy, nonetheless.
Well, it's pretty obvious that my dining companions love XO sauce so this was the 3rd dish that has it. Suprisingly though, each dish came out tasting uniquely different from one another making each so good. I have to admit that I felt that this was a very expensive dish but seeing how generous they were with the prawns made me realize that it was worth the high price tag.
This time, I saw this dish when I was browsing through Jin's instagram and I felt my mouth water upon seeing her photo of this beautiful masterpiece. Look how HUGE the crab claw was! It was big enough for Paul and I to share. I love that they have also added a piece of gold flake on this too. It was indeed a dish perfect for royalty. I also enjoyed the soup broth which had goji berry and a few more Chinese herb cooked in it.
As how they would say it locally. This one was "just okay lah." I guess I've had a lot of sweet and sour porks in my life that sadly this wasn't the best that I've had. The blueberries made it a bit more interesting but I just feel that it didn't blend int very well into the dish.
This was probably the only dish that I chose that day. When asked if we want plain rice or fried rice, of course, I went with the latter. Initially, Leslie was a bit iffy about the Yang Chow Fried Rice but we were given the assurance that it will be really good. The manager sure kept her promise as we all enjoyed our bowls of rice that complemented all the dishes that we had for lunch that day.
