Shanghai @ JW Marriott, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur
September 20, 2009
After so many years in business, this place is still consistently churning out sumptuous Shanghainese delights.
Traditional Cheng Kong homestyle ham. Tender and subtle in flavour.
Boiled duck eggs. We'd have eaten this all night if not for cholesterol anxiety!
Steamed pork rib wrapped in bamboo leaves. Perfectly prepared.
Yellow fish cooked with rice wine. The fish was fresh but forgettable.
Baked Royal Bridge fluffy dumplings stuffed with pork, chives and scallions.
Steamed Shanghainese meat dumplings. The best in town? Maybe.
Fried rice with ham and truffle oil. Nicely done but not especially memorable.
Shanghai layer cake with custard and salted egg yolk. A perennial delight.
Nu Er Hong Chinese wine. Too much of a good thing. A few glasses of this would have sufficed, instead of an entire bottle.
