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!
