My Lola's 90th birthday was celebrated at Shang Palace. It is Makati Shangri-la's fine dining restaurant offering Cantonese cuisine. Just from the entrance, you can already feel the luxurious ambiance because of the beautiful chandeliers, the red carpet, the wooden latticework designs and the beautifully-decorated walls. It felt like I was in an emperor's palace =)
|Crispy Roast Peking Duck with Chinese Pancake|
This meal got my appetite rolling. The skin was very crunchy and the hint of vegetables was perfect and it added to the crispness. There was enough sauce to make it tasty. The chinese pancake (more like chinese style unleavened bread) was not too thick and not oily which I really liked.
Braised Corn Soup with Chicken
|Deep fried spareribs with fragrant garlic|
This was a bit salty.
Deep Fried Boneless Chicken coated with Almond Flakes in Lemon Sauce
Minced Duck's Meat served with lettuce
This no-carb meal was very tasty and the lettuce cups were crunchy.
|Hot Prawn Salad|
This is one of their best-sellers and definitely my favorite. I love shrimps and they sure had VERY plump ones. It was topped with mixed fruits and it was covered with mayonnaise. I'm not a fan of pineapple in hot dishes so I just hoped there was none haha! It was a bit sweet and sour and some people may not like it.
Chilled Almond Jelly with Fruits
It took a little while for our orders to arrive (because we ordered a lot) but their food was truly for royal guests considering the taste, their servings and the price haha! Good venue for special occasions as they have 11 private rooms and they have cozy booths (perfect for dates) =P
Shang Palace is located at Level 2, Makati Shangri-la Hotel
