Grand Imperial @ USJ

Grand Imperial's third branch sits in an obscure Subang mall. Perhaps we were silly to travel here when there are more conveniently located branches at Bangsar and Sri Hartamas.

Loved the roast pork, which had crisp skin and the right balance of lean meat and fat. The char siew paled in comparison, but it was still perfectly edible.

Roast chicken. Tender, reasonably juicy and not too salty.

Steamed patin with shrimp & garlic. Tasted fresh enough, though the shrimp and garlic sauce nearly overpowered the fish's natural flavor.

Preparing the crispy aromatic duck wrapped with pancakes.

Not a smashing success. The pancakes were a bit too thick.

Sauteed bitter gourd with minced meat & salted egg. Addictive.

Poached tiger prawns with lettuce. Not bad, but not particularly memorable.

Pork ribs in herbal sauce. Sweet and succulent.

Braised pumpkin & yam in claypot. Carbolicious comfort food.

Grand Imperial,
19 USJ City Mall, Subang.
