We attended a friend's Birthday dinner last week. The dinner was at Imbi Palace Restaurant. We had our own private room with private waiter and captain although there was only 5 of us. Must be the amount of money being spent that night.
The first dish to arrive is the 4 Seasons Starter. It comprises of "siew yoke", salted egg yolk prawns, bacon wraps and stir fried shark fins. The prawns and the bacon wrap was very good. We went again the next day just to order the prawns!!
The stir fried shark fin was also good. They were very generous with the shark fins.
Next course is the shark fin soup. Its a little different from the usual shark fin soup that I'm used to. This one tasted very luxurious (if that makes any sense). Overall not bad!!
Someone at the table had a thing about eating shark fin so she had the "old cucumber" soup. It was served in a hollowed out cucumber and had loads of dried scallops, prawns and meat. I did not try this soup but people who did said it was GOOD!!
Next came the Peking Duck. As usual the captian craved out the skin while the waiter wrapped it in the pancake together with sliced cucumber and spring onions.
We told the captain to chop up the duck drumsticks for us. It was very delicious. Smooth, salty and oily. Ahhh!!! Heaven...
Next dish that came was the soft shell crabs. It was fried dried with salt, pepper and chilli flakes. Quite good but I found it abit too salty. Maybe its because of the duck.
The next dish to arrive is the tofu dish. As with all the dishes that night. It was really delicious with generous amounts of dried scallops, prawns, mushrooms and meat. They also threw in a few stalks of kailan for good measure! :D
The last of the main course to arrive was the duck noodles. The duck meat from the peking duck was shredded and fried with noodles. Another very good dish. Although I thought that there are not enough noodles and too much duck meat.
Now we move onto the desserts!! The first is the "Wor Peng". Ketchup Queen has sort of a soft spot for "Wor Peng" so she througly enjoyed this!!
The last dessert is the mango, sago, pomelo dessert. Sorry I dont know what its actually called but it was nice, cold and delicious!!
Overall a very excellent meal!! Thanks to JS for the lovely meal!!
