Tips for you
Suitably dressed for an elegant evening of fine dining, we booked a table early, and arrived at the Shang Palace. The interiors were evocative of old world China - dollops of red and gold motifs, ornate statues and fittings. A tad over the top. Though we were recommended it's signature dishes such as Braised Bird’s Nest with Pumpkin Cream and Spare Ribs and Cabbage with Chin Kiang Vinegar, for entree we saved up our appetite for the famed Peking duck. We had several starters before we got to the main course. The bird was carved in front of us with great finesse but unfortunately it came with more fat than is our liking - even though we whispered to the waiter to serve it crisp and thin. Perhaps the waiter didn't hear us! The desert was presented in an elegant tray - delicate, not too sweet. The wines - red and white French that we picked were excellent. At the end of the meal we wondered whether we went on an evening when the kitchen staff were not at their best! But all said and done it was a novel, interesting experience.
