Went to Glitter Palace Seafood Restaurant for dinner few weeks ago. They are just opened for business not long ago and they are frequently full house.
My youngest cousin Jerryco! So cute right!
A random shot of the restaurant.
Lotus root soup. My mom cooks better soup than this. Period.
Butter prawns. Tasted delicious! Prawn was nicely done, not overcooked nor undercooked. And the coating is quite complex with lots of ingredients which blend well together.
Claypot braised pork belly in HockChiew Red Wine Sauce The fragrance of hock chiew red wine combined with the melt in your mouth pork literally brings you to heaven! As a hockchiew person, I am always a fan of our trademark red wine. Its used for cooking and it is damn amazing! Omg I am blogging about this at 12:24am and I am damn hungry already!!!
The boat! The white thing with mayonaise is what chinese normally call 龙须卷 aka dragon whiskers roll if translated directly. But it was a disaster! The deep fried bee hoon tasted like petrol... -.- You know the taste of expired fried crackers? Yes it tasted like that. :/ This is probably the biggest let down of the restaurant. The other starter was something like a fishball with prawns in it. Tasted normal.
Egg tofu. Look at the gravy overflowing lol. Poor estimation but it is really nice if you eat it with white rice. Ahh comfort food ftw!
Claypot braised fish in cantonese yellow wine. Yes another wine dish! Haha our family is sure addicted to wine dishes! This dish was quite delicious too as the yellow wine went perfectly well with the tilapia.
But what sauce does not go well with tilapia? Tilapia is such a versatile fish which you can cook it using almost every single style you can think of. But not sashimi, I guess? Lol
So the deliciousness of this dish really depends on the quality of yellow wine they use. For this case, the yellow wine was quite fragrant, so its good!
Stir fried romaine in fermented beancurd paste. If you like fermented beancurd, you will like this dish very much because they really put in lots of fermented beancurd!
Food is generally above average. Recommended if you want a better family dinner.
What I dislike:
Service was bad. Waiters were not professionally trained at all. Do not hold your events here even though this restaurant is quite big if you dont want to embarass yourself. They don't serve the dishes in order. The soup arrived first, but was taken to a side table after a while, and the prawn next, and the pork. The starter only came in during the fourth dish. -.-
In short, this place is good for a family dinner if you want a nice bright place to sit down and enjoy your food.
