As we jumped off the abra, we had built quite an appetite and off we went to our room to get ready to dine at Shang Palace (Abu Dhabi). We charmed our ways through this restaurant that feels like you have stepped into a piece of China with its tasteful decor with lit paper lanterns making for quite a romantic spot to enjoy a quiet dinner.
What was served on our table? Australian beef tenderloin doused with black pepper sauce – the meat was tender and moist.I love the combination of black pepper with beef as it gives the meat a nice jam packed flavor that leaves your palette lingering for more.
Deep fried soft shell crab- these work as a perfect starter and a plus for sea food lovers like me – as the outer cover had a nice crispiness to it and the crab meat was packed with flavor so much so that i could have the plate all to myself.
Kung pao chicken (a stir fried dish containing chicken, peanuts, assorted vegetables and red chillies) leaves your palette in a state of spice and savor, thanks to the kung pao sauce, the chicken is stir fried in. What i liked about this dish is that the chicken cubes had nice touch of sauce to it, leaving the chicken moist and tasty.
Kung pao frog legs – this was one of my favorite dishes of the evening and although was a little jittery to try the same, my hubby and the waitress recommended i try it out. Lets just say it felt like i was eating chicken wings fried in kung pao sauce. The texture of the frog legs are velvety smooth and how well coated they are.
Stir fried beef ribs- a perfect blend of sweet and spice and the perfect cut of meat used. My husband and I fought for the last piece as ribs happens to be one of our favorite dishes especially when douses with a combination of sauces to elevate the taste.
