We had a tad more heads on the table - about seven people dining, so to account for the extra mouths we order an additional hot bowl of soup to our dinner which in this case has ingredients you mightn't usually come across by in a soup; sea snails, black chicken and lychees!
Then comes the scallops that are steamed then served with Vermicelli noodles in a XO Chilli sauce and shallots for garnish. We each have two scallops which both scallop medallions are plump. The pan-fried King prawns were next to arrive and are in a "superior soy" sauce that sticks to the gigantic prawns so well.
Our servings of diced beef fillet with wasabi dressing, crispy peipa duck ("peipa" is a method where the duck has been spread out to become flattened before roasted and is named after a Chinese musical instrument) had a juicy and crisp skin with a side of plum sauce and salt for dipping the duck pieces into.
Additionally we decided to splash out a bit more and order another dish - a suckling pork and jellyfish noodle plate. The pork skin was so quickly devoured I really had to be fast because everyone loved the crispy bit of the crackling along with the softer flesh of the pork underneath it.
Afterwards I felt like I needed to be rolled out back into the elevator because of all the yummy food we had eaten tonight. Now I'm just at home, feeling lazy whilst I type this up and consider grabbing a cuppa and settle down into watching some tv shows before bed.
