China Treasures @ Sime Darby Convention
August 21, 2010
It's a strange thing: Despite not exactly loving Chinese food, I eat it fairly often.
Deep-fried mantis prawns. Meaty and well-prepared, but not particularly memorable.
Tea-smoked duck. Really juicy. One of the tastiest ducks we've had this year.
Braised Chinese cabbage with fish roe & crab roe. The stock was rich and decadent, making the veggies seem almost like an unwelcome distraction.
La mian with beef brisket soup & chilli oil. Chinese restaurants are the best at tenderizing beef, aren't they? Even if their methods are somewhat suspicious.
Durian pancakes. Pretty fresh stuff, though Mandarin Oriental's version still rules.
Avocado pudding. A strange, artificial flavor made this a turnoff.
La Challenge Blanc (France). Wines are available by the glass, which is kinda rare for Chinese restaurants (but much appreciated!).
