Royal Canton @ DC Mall, Damansara City

Damansara City Mall welcomes a ravishing new restaurant - Royal Canton heralds the reincarnation of the Canton Fare brand as a distinctive destination for Hong Kong-style Cantonese cuisine. Chefs with decades of experience have been assembled to bring their flair & finesse to everything from dim sum to Japanese seafood, with plans to also offer kaiseki-inspired degustation menus for customers who want something regally special.

The menu is encyclopedic, embracing all the touchstones of this cuisine & more. Dim sum is available through 3pm, with Hokkaido scallop dumplings & Wagyu beef rice rolls among the numerous highlights. The all-day a la carte selection ranges from classic meat signatures like chilled free-range chicken slices with garlic (RM12), barbecued pork char siew (RM22) & roast duck (RM28 for a tender, fleshy quarter) ...

 ... to interesting carb-loading dishes like kuey teow with pork belly & bitter gourd (RM22) & fried rice with octopus & seafood in abalone sauce (RM18), with other temptations like glutinous rice with Chinese sausages, sang meen with freshwater prawns in superior sauce, & bee hoon with seafood in fish sauce also catching our eye.

And true to the venue's name, there are sumptuous specialities galore that would seem fit for an emperor, from sturgeon fillets to braised goose web with Japanese Yoshihama abalone, bird's nest with Yunnan ham to Indian Ocean Soon Fung fish maw, steamed Alaskan king crab with Hua Diao wine to charcoal-grilled Iberico ribs in sea salt.
