Grandmother's Birthday Celebration @ St. Regis

We celebrated her birthday at a Chinese restaurant and the food was good, most of it. Shall let the pictures do the talking. :)

The lift lobby.

A resting area, looks like someone's living room haha. A very cosy set-up with all the warm lights.

The decor in the toilet haha.

This is like a East meets West design.

The table's huge man like really huge! Perfect for reunion dinners. But still, it was a little squeezy cos we had like 18 people.

The layout of the utensils and the side dish/sauces.

My brother was complaining about the weight of the utensils lol. They did weigh abit more than our usual utensils.

I am not a fan of almonds but this was exceptionally good!

And after the rest arrived, it's time for food to be served!

First dish was the conventional birthday buns.

The second was the appetizer trio which consisted of crispy roasted pork, roasted duck and jelly fish, which was really good! The crispy skin of the roasted pork was the best part la haha, the duck was just nice and the jelly fish! One of the best I've had so far.

The third dish was Braised Fish Maw Broth with Conpoy. I think restaurants should serve this instead of sharks fins soup. Firstly, this tastes as good or in most instances, better! (you know what I mean) Plus, the way shark fins are obtained is really cruel. So this is better.

Fourth was Steamed Sea Perch Fillet with Chef's Special Coral Sauce.
Not very much of a fish person, with the exception of salmon and codfish. So I thought this dish was pretty okay. The fish's quite fresh and that is what matters to me most when it comes to a fish dish.

But the fifth dish was delish! It's Pan-Fried Korubuta Pork Chop with Black Pepper Sauce. The pork chop is Japan's famous black pig so the meat was really succulent. And I love pepper, so black pepper sauce was a perfect combination.

After this dish was Stir-fried Amoy Mee Sua Vermicelli, I didn't take a photo cos this dish was a tad disappointing. It tasted like what you can get from a "zi char" stall and some even served better ones. Then following this dish was Almond Tea which I gave to my cousin because the smell of any almond dessert puts me off. ><

But overall, the food served was pretty good, so was the ambience and service from the staff as well.


I think this is my first blog post wholly on food lol. Despite me being a foodie.
Alrighty, got to go now! :)
