Father’s Day Dinner

We had a simple Father’s Day celebration – a buffet dinner at Pearl River Palace Cantonese Restaurant with my parents-in-law and brother-in-law, Kenneth.

We’ve been to Pearl River for buffet lunch several times, and I’ve the impression that their food is wonderful. The restaurant is quite spacious, with tables well spread apart. I like the dessert and fruits section, where they are laid-out as a buffet spread so that diners can help themselves. The restaurant staffs are warm and friendly too.

However, I’ve to say that their menu for buffet dinner is sadly lacking. There wasn’t any crab in the menu. The serving size was too little. We ordered a plate of salmon sashimi and it came with only six pieces. We had to re-order for at least five times!

The other dishes were just ordinary, nothing much to rave about – except for the roast pork. It’s so crispy, juicy and not oily. I had a whole plate of it all by myself!

After the dinner, we took a family photo at the restaurant’s lobby. Our cheeky Little Edison refused to sit on the sofa with us. He went all the way to the front.

Even though the food wasn’t fantastic, but I certainly enjoy eating together as a family!

    The dinner at Pearl River was marvellous.

    We had servings of :

    1) Steamed Sea Bass in HK Style,

    2) Peking Duck,

    3) Stewed Herbal Duck served in Claypot,

    4) Buddha Jump Over The Wall (individual serving)

    5) Steamed LIVE Prawns in Chinese Wine

    6) Salmon Sashimi

    7) Beef Brisket served with Turnip

    8) Stir Fried Lamp with Black Pepper

    9) Roasted Combination Plate (Braised Chicken meets Char-Siew)

    10) Wasabi Prawns

    11) Roasted Pork ( STAR Dish !!! A must have, must try and must re-order !!!)

    On that Saturday night, in addition to the above, we also had other orders as well.

    As I wasn’t feeling too well (down with fever, blocked nose, wet cough and a congested chest), I could hardly remember the full list which we made the kitchen whipped up for us.

    In entirety, the dinner was great!

    We had loads of fun and chattings. Of course, our little boy made poor mommy and the helper run around the restaurant to usher him to his seat.

    Thanks Da Sao for arranging this dinner.

    Thanks for making things, possible.

      Hi Ken,
      You r welcome. Thanks for your wonderful comment. We had a lot of food and fun that night, it was great. I really enjoy family dinner like this. In terms of buffet dinner, I think Noble House is still better. I like their crabs. 🙂
      I asked Ven to organise another buffet dinner. He will give us a treat as he just got promoted. Muahaha!
