Prosperity Oyster with Braised Sliced Abalone
First things first, the Tong Sing Grouper (东星班) was a major disappointment. At $150/kg on the ala carte menu, I had expected sweet delicate meat that could carry itself with just a dip of soya sauce. What I tasted though was rather coarse and bland meat. And bones, save for those in a whole fish, are a no no in a fine dining restaurant in my humble opinion.
I thought that the rice was quite well done. Not too oily and didn't clump together. The sausages seemed to have minimal fats which is definitely a healthier option yet managing to retain their flavour. Very good.
Wine for the evening
Overall a most filling meal coupled with great company and service. Food quality is good but seems to be lacking in finesse for some of the dishes. Thanks to St Regis and Flickr once again for the invite.
