Day 3 started off with the breakfast of champions from Superbowl and finished off with the dinner of champions…. chinese banquet.
My Uncle and Aunty have been going to Emperor’s Garden Seafood for over a decade now and not only do they do delicious Dim Sum, they serve an epic chinese banquet.
Please excuse me for my lack of description and pricing as I was too involved with the family and the food…
Free Peanuts and Tea
Free salted nuts anyone?
Soup of the Day
Most chinese restaurants will serve a nice and hearty soup for the first course. It a nice a light broth with bones and veggies or preserved veggies.
Steamed Oysters with XO Sauce and BACON BITS
Steamed fresh, juicy fat oysters topped with garlic vermicelli in a XO sauce and sprinkled with bacon bits.
Steamed Ginger Oysters
A gentle ginger and soy combination topped with herbs.
2 kg of Lobster with E Fu Noodles
This sauce was the bomb. It was loaded with butter, garlic and onions. With the lobster being quickly deep-fried first, the sauce is absorbs by the batter and the noodles.
My First Portion
I’m the type of girl who spends her time picking out every lobster or crab leg for any traces of meat. I may get the shells all over myself by the end of it, but it’s worth it.
Fujian or Fukien Fried Rice
Ever feel like fried rice is a bit dry? Well the clever town of Fujian in China invented this dish. An asian-like gravy sauce filled with yummy bits of meat and vegetables underneath a bed of fried rice. This was my first exposure to this dish and I can’t help but wonder why I haven’t discovered it sooner.
I’m not a fan of wasabi, however this dish was a treat. It was not overpowering like I expected and in fact the sauce only had a hint of wasabi. The beef was tender and perfect with mayo.
Steamed Whole Fish
Always a winner.
Salt & Pepper Chilli Prawns
Buttery- flakey biscuits.
More Complimentary Dessert?
No complaints here! The Tofu Fa was really smooth and the sugar syrup was not too rich.
Meet Fresh Noodle Special
After dinner it was time for me to show my aunt and uncle something I discovered… Meet Fresh. They loved it.
Meet Fresh Signature Herbal Dessert
I just can’t get enough….
