香宫 Shang Palace – Shangri-La

24 May

I was invited to a Chinese and Cantonese restaurant, supposely to be one of the best of the city when it comes to dim sum. However we went there for Chinese food. I’m not a real Chinese food lover and my friend wanted me to change my mind.

We started with a Pu’er tea from Yunnan, and some beans as appetizers.

For the main dishes, we had  fried rice with crab meat and purple rice, beef, roasted duck, hot and sour shrimp soup, and some beef.As for the dessert, it was some steamed black sesame buns.

I’m really not an expert when it comes to Chinese food, but the purple rice was the better i ever had. I need to know how to cook this. The roasted duck was really different from the one i had in Beijing, it was nice but i still prefer the real Beijing duck with the crepes. The beef was really tender and in nice slices (not small pieces of beef with only fat like you often find). The soup wasn’t really spicy and had a nice flavor. I’m still not used to the thickness of some Chinese soups but so far it was the best i had in Taiwan.

For the dessert, the steamed bun were nice. I like sesame because it has a pretty strong flavor and not too sweet. It’s a pity we can’t find more pastries with sesame in France.
