I was only told it would be a performance with food. Until I arrived at the theatre, I had no inkling what I was in for. At the entrance we were greeted by waitresses dressed in princess garb.

hallway

Proceed further down the long walk way...

lotus flower

Artificial lotus flowers on the table gave the place an added oriental touch.

table

Purple, the colour of royalty.

Menus!

table

Liked the cutlery set used...

table

Before the dinner proper began, it was already filled with appetizers.

appetizer

Tasted like crispy fish with a savoury marinate, loved the chewy textures here.

Appetizers



stir fried beef


Grand Mansion Toufu

Yet another tasty one that I could not stop picking at!

ham

Jellied chicken, it still amazes me how much intricacy goes into this.

seaweed

Seaweed!

peanuts

Nuts tossed in soysauce, as simple as it looks and sounds...this was equally appetizing.

pickles

Yes, it's still on the appetizers with pickled bamboo shoots. Refreshing!

jelly

Not totally sure what this is but this translucent agaragar-like this was quite odd for me.

jellied pork

NOW, this is what I called edible art! The designs the chef created with the herbs and vegetables in the jelly was magic. Just like how I get very enthralled by the designs on the century egg...though formed naturally but the designs are super pretty! Does not help these taste really good too!

vegetable salad

Queer to find a western salad during a chinese meal but kudos..they did well! Walnuts, sprigs of green...vinaigrette and sesame seeds.

marinated beef

At last the final dish of appetizers...sliced beef! Yummy.

chicken soup


Grand Mansion Soup

Wholesome hearty chicken soup...missing out on the herbs though.

roast duck

Grand Mansion Duck

This is pretty close to braised duck, succulent juicy meat.





roast chicken

Deep Fried Crispy Chicken

This was drier than duck though equally delish.

pork ribs

Lamp Ribs with Secret Recipe

Not too huge a fan of this though I can't put a finger to it. Perhaps the gameyness of it that is repulsive (for once! I normally do not mind the gameyness much).

fish

Steamed Mandarin Fish

Fresh and huge..!

beef

Stir Fried Beef Tenderloin with Long Beans


Things started to get oily here.

root vegetables

Steamed Potato, Beans, Corns, Sweet Potatoes

grilled prawns
