Grand Palace @ Pavilion Kuala Lumpur


A new Chinese restaurant of epic proportions, somehow confined within a shopping mall.


Their braised pigeon with ham is a work of art. The pigeon flesh is tender and meaty for a change, the bird's head is crisp enough to be chewed, while the well-chosen assortment of veggies is fresh and crunchy.


Foie gras with abalone. Thickly sliced, expertly seared liver = buttery bliss.


Baked lamb ribs. Reasonably juicy and well-marinated, but not outstanding.


"Village-style" prawns. A tried-and-tested recipe; no surprises, but no complaints either.






Grand Palace,
Pavilion.

  8. I thought it was the abalone which was puny :P not the foie gras.. lol!!!
    Jenn will be drooling at the sight of the lamb rack... I wonder if it's comparable to the one in Bukit Tinggi Pahang.

  9. leo: heh... the lamb here was ok only. i've not tried the bkt tinggi one, but i think that would probably still be better. :D

  14. abalone? *faints* foie gras? *faint faint* two combination in one platter? *resuscitation needed*

    The last i went to this place for a function, they serve birdnest soup as a dessert. And the HK artist, Alex Fong was there too.

  15. augustdiners: yikes, i'm terrible when it comes to hk celebrities, i had to google alex fong. bird's nest soup seems to be quite versatile, i recall that shangri-la does it in mooncakes too, very yummy :D

  16. i would drink bird nest soup every night as well (i only get the homemade kind back at home). the only reason why i drink it is because it's supposed to be good for complexion.

    i’ve been taking the store-bought kind online (e.g. www.geocities.jp/hongkong_bird_nest/index_e.htm of famous branded only of course) which is directly mailed from Hong Kong. this would be at a more affordable price.
