Shang Palace. Our stay at the Shangri-La Dubai Hotel included one dinner at their Chinese restaurant Shang Palace. I’ve already traveled to China in September 2013 and have been a huge fan of their cooking style since then. Chinese food is something that is offered throughout the world, but not often will you find really good and authentic dishes. Therefore, I’m always super happy when I get the opportunity to eat in good Chinese restaurants.

Shang Palace

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!

As a sweet conclusion the waiter persuaded us to try their signature desserts: a Valhrona chocolate and Long Jing fondant with green tea (55 AED – 14,4€) and a deconstructed Tonka bean crème brûlée with mango and caramel (55 AED – 14,4€). Wow! The creations were fantastic and super interesting. We couldn’t ask for a better ending!

  • Also je älter ich werde (omg wie das klingt), desto mehr Geld gebe ich auch gerne für wirklich wirklich wirklich gutes Essen aus. Essen, das wirklich authentisch ist und mich gerne auch mal mit neuen Geschmacksnoten überrascht. Deine Bilder sind toll – und dein Kleid (?) übrigens auch :)
