Weekend Snapshot # 15...Dinner @ Xin Cuisine Chinese Restaurant




Last Saturday after checking into Shangri-la Kuala Lumpur, my family and I walk over to Concorde Hotel on the other side of the road to have a great feast with other relatives in Xin Cuisine Restaurant to celebrate the wedding of my sis-in-law's son Liam's marriage with his bride, Aur from Bangkok. It is the best chinese dinner I ever had in ages.


Lobster salad with fresh fruit and two varieties of appetizer...yummy!

My portion of very delicious braised shark fin soup with plenty of crabmeat and crab roe.....

Fragrant crispy duck Sze Chuan style....even taste better than the usual Szechuan crispy chicken....

The smooth and tender flesh of steamed pomfret with Imperial soya sauce.....


Braised mixed vege in beancurd skin.......the veges were sweet and the beancurd skin were nicely braised til soft....


Huge crispy prawn fritters tossed in Togarashi sauce.....


Braised Sea Cucumber with black mushroom, fish maw, and brocolli...



Double-boiled gingko nut, white fungus in Coconut.....a very refreshing and warm dessert with the sweet and fragrant taste of coconut....



The two variety bun with lotus and red bean paste fillings....



I miss a shot of the wok fried rice with scallop and crabmeat that was served before the dessert which makes it a ten course dinner feast making me a few hundred grams heavier and yet craving for more of the nice dessert and fruity red wine........

The meal at Xin Cuisine Restaurant looks great.

I like the idea of serving the dessert of double-boiled gingko nut, white fungus in a whole coconut, not only has the extra fragrant but also kept warm and very presentable too.
