We loved the Pumpkin Soup with Fresh Lobster as a starter. The natural brininess of the lobster helps bring out all the deep, earthy flavours in the soup. The use of lobster for this dish needs to be fully appreciated and is a total treat in your mouth. For the main course, Pan-fried Lamb Chops with Wild Chilli Sauce is a must. The lamb is perfectly cooked and tender. Salute to the Executive Chinese Chef of Shang Palace who made all the dishes so perfectly.
Don’t forget to order Chilled Lemon Grass Jelly with Lime Sorbet as a dessert, one of shang palace’s best desserts. The chewy jelly has a delightful sweet freshness, while the lime sorbet is just brilliant, a bit sour, but a beautiful accompaniment to the Lemon Grass.
