This must be the fastest post I've ever done after an outing..I figured since I was gonna post the pics for my girlfriends up on Facebook, I might as well post it on my blog too. This was an lunch outing that we had today! Carol and I had just decided to meet up yesterday itself and managed to get a few of us out too.So, yes... for those who usually run out and buy 4D numbers/lottery at the slightest oddity - this could be one of those times :o).
I've been to Grand Imperial in Bangsar Shopping Centre before but never did take photos till today. I usually have dim sum here. So, when the girls met up today and were deciding where to go in Bangsar Shopping Centre, I threw in my vote for Grand Imperial and there we were shortly after. As in all gatherings, we talked more than we ate. We covered everything within the short two hour lunch - business, beauty, legal matters and LIFE of course but I must say that we did quite good on the orders. . While the slim one lamented that we ordered too much, the few of us looked at each other with raised eyebrows as we didn't feel the same. Hahaha...
Our favourite, which warrants two orders was the Salted Egg Yolk Custard Bun ... delightful little buns :o)
Of course, we had the roast pork too. We love the fork tender, melt-in-the-mouth pork but yet with the ever crunchy skin. Grand Imperial is pretty consistent with this dish.
The Fried Carrot Cake was flavourful but was a tad wet today.
For something simple, the shrimp wantons deliver - a truly "filled" wanton with lovely clear broth.
The Abalone Loh Mai Kai (Glutinous Rice) was nice but it was pretty much the usual standard.
We love the Shredded Pork and Century Egg Porridge - with generous amount of Century Eggs bits (me likey!). The viscosity was just right; while being thick enough it was extremely smooth ... no visible rice grain in sight. It might have been blended prior to cooking to produce such a result. Whatever it is, we love it!
Yes, we enjoyed the food and the great company as usual ... there will be more - gatherings and food, hahaha. Let's just hope that we don't go overboard with ordering - but then to us few, we never seem to ;o).
