Review of Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore 8-course dinner

Here’s the menu:
Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore 8-course dinner (1)

1st dish
Smoked Salmon Yu Sheng with Ocean Clams
Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore 8-course dinner (2)
I don’t eat clams.
I ate the biscuits, it’s crispy and the sauce is better than average.

2nd dish
Braised Crab Meat and Fish Maw Soup with Nameko Mushrooms

I finished it all, interesting how they added Nameko Mushrooms, not many places do that.

3rd dish
Wok-fried Prawns with Asparagus and Cashew Nuts
Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore 8-course dinner (4)
Ate the prawns and cashew nuts, but not the asparagus.
Thankfully, the taste of the asparagus didn’t seep into the prawns, else I won’t eat the prawns.

4th dish
Baked Cod Fish with Barbecued Honey Sauce, Egg White and Crispy Garlic
Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore 8-course dinner (5)
The best dish among all 8.
The salmon was well cooked, it wasn’t raw.
The sauce was sweet and just nice with the salmon, it doesn’t give you that fishy or sickening feel.

5th dish
Crispy Chicken with Almond Slices and Garlic

I took a piece but ate a bite, kinda sick of chickens.

6th dish
Braised Whole Abalone with Home-made Bean Curd and Spinach

I don’t eat abalone.

The bean curd was so-so.

7th dish
Fried Rice “Yang Zhou” Style
Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore 8-course dinner (9)
Another normal dish, too much scallion.
It gives the impression that the ingredients ain’t fresh and hence the need to add so much scallion to cover up the taste.

8th dish
Sweetened Yam Paste with Pumpkin
Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore 8-course dinner (10)
It looks the most appalling, but it’s the second-best dish among all 8.
Both the taste of yam and pumpkin are there, they didn’t overshine each other.
It also gives a nice fusion between Western and Asian cuisines, like pumpkin is more of a Western dessert while yam is more of an Asian dessert.
