Elegant Seafood Restaurant serves Chinese food in a grand and elegant setting with a huge liquor cabinet located at the reception. Here was what we had:
鯊魚骨花膠湯: This was soup boiled with shark bones and fish maw hence the lovely milky cream colour.
The star of the soup was the 1.5cm thick fish maw that had a super sticky texture so you could imagine how much pure collagen was in it.
It was such an unforgettable experience eating this because it was so soft and extremely gelatinous which meant it was good in quality. ★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Seafood soup with clams The presentation of this was different, it was served like tea in a Chinese tea pot.
There is a wedge of lime to add lime juice into the soup. I tried it without the lime and the soup had strong seafood flavours especially the clam with a sweet aftertaste.
After the lime was added, the soup became more appetizing.
Buddha jumps over the wall. This is the famous Buddha jumps over the wall soup that had sharks fin, sea cucumber and fish maw which had a rich taste from the delicacies in the soup. ★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Fish head soup with Chinese Angelica and Ligusticum wallichii (Szechuan lovage) This is a herbal soup that is good for you. For more details the staff will happily explain it. Anyway, I loved it because it had a strong fish taste with a nice bitterness from the herbs.
燕窩炒蛋白 併 炸鴿子蛋:
Stir fried egg white with bird's nest and fried pigeons egg This dish is loaded with protein, the scrambled egg white was silky with delicate pieces of bird's nest in it.
As well as the scrambled egg white, there was pigeon egg which had a lovely jelly like texture with an opaque colour.
Prawns paired with Spanish ham On this plate was prawns done in two ways, one was in a crispy wasabi coating while the other one was complemented by the Spanish ham
Prawn with Chinese Yunnan ham The Chinese ham and prawn were a perfect balance because the saltiness of the Chinese ham was just right.
For more flavour, there was prawn paste to take it to another level.
Stuffed chicken wings with sharks fin/bird's nest There are two choices of fillings, it can be stuffed with sharks fin or birds nest.
I had the birds nest version and the chicken wing was crispy stuffed with a fair bit of bird's nest encased in a juicy chicken wing. ★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Baked Portuguese whelk The whelk was stuffed with diced chicken and crab that was marinated in a lovely thick sauce which had a hint of curry in the taste.
脆皮咕嚕肉 併 酥炸九肚魚:
Sweet and sour paired with fried bombay duck!
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bombay_duck I must admit the name is weird when I found it from wiki.
Anyway, the sweet and sour cannot fail because the pork was crispy and appetizing.
As for the fish, it didn't look like fish because there was seaweed mixed in the batter which made it look different but the texture of the fish was really silky just like jelly. ★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Chili prawns: I loved these prawns because there were so many Sichuan spices used to cook this.
It had a light crispy coating which released the fragrant flavours with a spicy kick that creeps onto you.
Eels steamed in black bean sauce I loved black bean sauce hence I liked these silky slices of eel in black bean sauce but watch out for the bones though.
Giant grouper slices in hot chili oil The grouper fish slices were silky but because they put okra in this dish, the fish was even more viscous with a strong spicy taste that was a bit too spicy for me.
Singapore style crab in black pepper The crab was cracked nicely so I got to eat big chunks of crabmeat conveniently from the claws which was flavoured deliciously by the sweet black pepper sauce.
Chinese broccoli stir fried with cured meat I was surprised how nice the cured meat was because the fat on top was crispy and the cured meat was not too salty while the Chinese broccoli was crisp with a sweet taste that didn't have any grassiness to it.
Baked seafood rice with cheese. Beneath the cheese was rice and lots of diced seafood.
鳳凰炒長遠: This was stir fried glass vermicelli with egg and beanshoots .
I loved the fragrant egg taste and springy soft glass vermicelli that went well with the juicy beanshoots.
Stir fried beef noodles A flawless noodle dish that was not oily.
Lobster soup with scallop and crispy rice Last but not least was this golden soup which had a lovely sweet lobster taste with some creaminess that is best dipped with the crueller to soak the broth.
Tri colour steamed piggy bun: I was too full to eat this but I was told they use natrual colourings for the bun.
