My dad and mom are here (Nov 2-17) visiting us, so I've been mad busy and my blog has been super quiet! Since they are now in Langkawi (one week here and one week divided between Singapore and Langkawi), its time to catch up with my emails, do some more work and blog. Oh, how I missed you all!

Last Friday night, we came here with a craving for some authentic Chinese cuisine. As I walked into the luxurious decor restaurant that inspired by China's Imperial era, the first thing I saw was a big Buddha statue in the centre of the main eating section.

We started with their star Shanghainese attraction, the Signature Dynasty Dumplings (RM25.80) or xiao long bao, as you might know them better. Unlike the original steamed soup dumpling with the marinated meat filling, The 8 first-of-its-kind types of xiao long bao were available in 8 multi colors and flavors - black truffle (black), Szechuan (pink), foie gras (brown), ginseng (green), garlic (grey), crab roe (orange), cheese (yellow) and original (translucent white). Not a huge fan of steamed dumplings, but I'm amazed with the chef's creativity!

The Chilled Assorted Eggs Loaf in Yang Zhou Style (RM12.80) was indeed unique. It was a blend of a few eggs (century egg, salted egg and normal chicken egg) into one unique cold dish.

Equally enticing was the Cold Tofu with Century Egg (RM10.80).

Scrambled Egg White with Fish and Dried Scallop (RM20.80) - another egg-cellent dish! *my cholesterol levels just shuddered a little*

We each ordered a bowl of handmade la mian (hand-pulled noodles); their next bestseller and the bowls are big enough to bathe a puppy in, loll! I went with one of the 18 different types of la mian, which is La Mian with Shredded Pork and Preserved Vegetable in Signature Pork Bone Soup (RM15.80).

In between all that, there was an unforgettable serving of Baby Bamboo Shoot in Oyster Sauce (RM12.80).

Already full, we finished off with something sweet - Pan-fried Pancake with Red Bean Paste (RM8.90), the perfect warm finish to a great meal!

The bill for 6 people was RM249.05 including beverages, service charge and tax.
