Birthday Dinner @ Imbi Palace

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!!

I ate dim sum at the place opposite imbi palace. It was called yujua village or something. The dim sum was of normal quality you can get certain cheaper shops. I thought it was not worth the price.
Plus you have do drive through the jam in that area.

Was there recently and saw they served a fear factor lobster dish on d next table. Its cut opened body was filled with its sliced meat, eaten raw or dip into a boiling pot. All the while, tentacles on the lobster's head was still moving, esp when touched (Still alive??!! -_-"). BTW, I've been hopping in & out of your blog for quite sometime but this is my 1st time commenting here. Just wanted to share that, hope u don't mind too much.

This looks good but I wouldn't eat Shark fin as the worlds sharks are being decimated by over fishing/fining. It’s barbaric how they kill so many sharks for just their fins and then leave them to die. What a waste and anyone who buys shark fins is just as guilty.

"Shark fin soup alters an ecosystem"

Nearly 100 million sharks are killed every year due to the enormous demand for shark fins to make shark fin soup

Anyone who serves, requests or eats Shark's Fin Soup is guilty of this world's crime of decimation one of the sea's most important creatures of the ecosystem.

You are responsible for all the drowned sharks laying at the bottom of the ocean.

don't eat shark fin soup monsters! do you have any idea?? the sharks are still alive when their fins are SLASHED off of their bodies, then they are thrown back in, still alive, where they crash into the bottom of the ocean and bleed to death, or are eaten alive, while also starving to death and suffocating because they cannot move enough to get lots of oxygen into their gills. BY THE WAY the shark fin adds no flavor so all this unnessesary shit happens so that you can have a piece of flavourless rubber in your fucking soup. someone at your table had a "thing" about eating shark fins? It was more than a "thing" its called having a conscience
