Shang Palace | Hong Kong, CHINA

As you all know, I'm not a fan of flying and as much as I enjoy eating, I could never thoroughly enjoy a meal in the sky. As a result, the other travel bunnie always makes sure that I'm well fed after a flight.

After our drinks at the Ozone in The Ritz Carlton, we took a short cab ride to the Kowloon Shangri-La, where the two Michelin starred Shang Palace is located.

Upon entering the restaurant, I was immediately taken away by its elegant oriental décor. The restaurant serves traditional Cantonese cuisine and the menu is nothing but an impressive affair.

Given the crazy cyclonic weather outside, we were in desperate need for something warm and calming so a pot of their private reserved 1994 Tie Guan Yin ($90HKD per person) did just that.

As for food, the sound of their sautéed sliced beef and shishito pepper with garlic in black bean sauce ($240HKD), roasted crispy goose ($200HKD) and sautéed assorted vegetables ($160HKD) was just too good to say no to and we also had a serve of the fried noodles with shredded pork, mushrooms and bean sprouts ($150HKD) to go with the meal. The portions weren't exceptionally large, but both the presentation and the taste of the dishes, much like the restaurant itself, were oh-so-fine.

It was hard to leave without having savoured their desserts. The dessert menu was like nothing I've seen here in Brisbane before and if I could, I would order almost everything off their menu, but eventually, I settled for the chilled sweetened pumpkin cream with coconut ice cream ($48HKD) and the other travel bunnie had the sweetened almond cream ($42HKD). We also received assorted traditional cantonese desserts with compliments of the chef. To this day, the chilled sweetened pumpkin cream with coconut ice cream remains as one of my all time favourite desserts.

The dinner at Shang Palace was exactly what we wanted. It was nothing over the top, just decent, traditional, but delicious food that satisfied our hungry stomachs after a long-haul flight.

Total bunnie dollars spent: $1,200HKD (all prices above were subject to 10% service charge)
