REVIEW

Shang Palace

One of Hong Kong’s grandest Cantonese restaurants, Shang Palace offers the too rare opportunity to sample deftly executed Cantonese cuisine in a luxurious setting with mostly attentive service.  It is far more traditional in décor than peers like Lung King Heen and Tin Lung Heen, which are decorated in a more contemporary style.  Unlike them, it does not have an excellent view, but a recent renovation heightened the opulence of the red and gold themed dining room. Incredibly beautiful Chinese scroll paintings are interspersed along carved red lacquerware walls and dramatic crystal chandeliers and birdcage lanterns hang from the ceiling,

The restaurant offers outstanding versions of many classic dishes, such as a superb roasted crispy pork belly, barbecued suckling pig and Peking duck, the latter of which is carved tableside and comes with original, pumpkin and black truffle flavored pancakes.  One of the signature dishes is a crispy lobster with oatmeal, which is lightly battered and fried till golden brown, and topped with sweet oatmeal from Singapore.  It’s an arresting and delicious combination.  There is also an oven baked cod fillet with egg white and conpoy that is exquisitely cooked. Be sure and order one of the premium teas to complement your meal; we particularly recommend the Premium Ti Guan Yin from the Anxi highland region.
