Shang Palace is one of the signature restaurants of the Shangri-La Hotels worldwide and offers a delightful taste of authentic Cantonese cuisine. In fact, the restaurant was awarded the Best Chinese Restaurant by What’s On Awards in 2013-2014. It is traditionally decorated and looks a lot like the restaurants I saw in China – decoration, atmosphere, round tables. The Chinese love round tables as they put everything in the middle and share the dishes.
Shang Palace The dishes
Typical Cantonese and provincial delicacies are for example Yum Cha or the famous Beijing Duck (even though people claim that you can’t get a real Beijing duck outside of China). The Spicy Cucumbers (26 AED – 7,3€) are one of my favorite Chinese starters, so we had to order them. Moreover, we had the Crispy Prawns with mango-mayonnaise sauce (68 AED – 17,8€). The starters were already super delicious. We ordered two meat dishes as the main course accompanied with fried and steamed rice. The main courses were a wok-fried sliced black angus beef sirloin in ginger and spring onion sauce (95 AED – 25€) and the deep-fried chicken breast with dried chili and Sichuan pepper (88 AED – 23€). Both were very tasteful and sophisticated!
