It was just supposed to be a short visit by boat to see the magnificent Jumbo Floating Restaurant which was one of Hong Kong's famous landmarks as well; and a symbol of the Eastern Pearl.
However, this innocent notion of a visit during dinner time turned out more than we expected and without us knowing it, we were on our way to one fine Oriental dining experience that we can never forget:)
The grand boat provided by the restaurant to ferry their customers from this mini docking pier to their floating platform.
The ride is for free; of course:)
A glimpse of the lights as we were approaching the restaurant
These were all the other restaurants trying their luck at imitating the famous restaurant
Which was nothing close to this grandeur and impressive palace-like restaurant!
The interior of the dining area
This place made me feel like a Manchurian Princess or something!!:D
My Cup of Tea:)
A bowl of lemon juice with a hint of XO in it
This was used for rinsing your hands after peeling your prawns and was definitely not meant for drinking!
*Rumours had it that Queen Elizabeth once drank this; unknowingly as her majesty thought that it was XO:p
Chilli sauce in a dynamic angle
We ordered the Course-set dinner for 2 pax; HKD638++ (~RM300++) which consists of 5-6 dishes with dessert.
Steamed freshwater prawns
Sweet corn with crabmeat and prawns soup
Next, the dish came covered
Stir-fried celeries with fresh scallops
Really delicious and the scallops were so succulent in taste!:)
Next was the fish; Steamed Tiger Garoupa
Yangchow Fried Rice
Our Mango Pudding:)
I am allergic to Mangoes; and rarely take mangoes; but I tried this and it was really nice!:D
I am the next generation's Princess:)
The royal garments/costumes for change for photo
The beautiful architecture and carvings of dragons and phoenixes; the symbol of the Chinese dynasties and power
The different emblems for their classification of dining halls
The chef who cooked the nice food? :)
