Dynasty Restaurant MIGF 2012 at Renaissance Hotel (Invited Review)

Named after the private dining halls of the grand emperors of bygone days, Dynasty Restaurant is an elegant Chinese restaurant in Renaissance Hotel with majestic decor, serving a wide range of Cantonese cuisines which are all delicately prepared. Being an award-winning dim sum restaurant, Dynasty restaurant never fails to satisfy diners with scrumptious dishes. This time, they join in the 2012 MIGF, continues to serenade diners with a Festival Menu that finest flavours of Cantonese Cuisine.

The soul behind this Festival Menu is the Executive Chef Kok Chee Kin, who has over 20 years of experience in culinary arts. Together with his team, Chef Kok combines modern flavours into each dish, but at the same time retaining the purest and traditional goodness of Catonese cuisine, just as what MIGF theme “Classical Chefs!- A symphony of Great Cuisines” this year, which highlights on serving the purest cuisine using the traditional way of cooking.
The meal starts with Trio of Appetizers (满富楼精品三款), which has Steamed Seafood Orange Dumpling, Abalone with Chilled Spicy Vermicelli Salad and Yin Yang Norwegian Salmon.

Steamed Seafood Orange Dumpling
Bright in colour and taste, the dumpling with seafood filling is meant to be savoured with care, added with a touch of orange sauce for zingy flavour.
Abalone with Chilled Spicy Vermicelli Salad
A cold starter that combines a good texture of fresh abalone and vermicelli salad, simple but luxury with a hint of spiciness.
Yin Yang Norwegian Salmon
Marinated salmon with olive and fresh salmon with tartar sauce being served side by side, meaty and fatty fresh.
Fish Maw, Cabbage & Ocean Treasure Bouillon
A luscious soup with a huge scallop crowing on top of fish maw, shark fins, dried scallop and cabbage. Can’t really determine we should go with the soup or the ocean treasure first, as they both come best when savour together.
After the appetizer and soup, diners will be surprised with a medley of mains, which are:
1) Pan Seared Wagyu Beef with Fresh Mushroom, Garlic Black Pepper Juice,
2)Grilled Cod Fillet, Wantan, Mashed Potato in Saffron Broth Japanese Somen,
3)Ginseng Wine, Jumbo Prawns & Scallop in Clear Essence
Pan Seared Wagyu Beef with Fresh Mushroom, Garlic Black Pepper Juice
Pan seared Wagyu beef topped with fresh mushroom, bringing two levels juiciness from both the beef and mushroom. Delicious enough without any sauce, better with the fragrance from black pepper sauce.
Serving alongside is the mini young carrot with Roasted Roulade of chicken, which has tender chicken meat wrapped with bouncy meatball paste.
Grilled Cod Fillet, Wantan, Mashed Potato in Saffron Broth
Fork through the grilled cod fillet, slightly dip it with the yellowish saffron sauce and tuck into mouth, we smile as the soft fish fillet with good flavour surrounding our palate. The mashed potato sitting beneath is equally tasty, creamy and buttery, just the way we like it to be. The wantan seems odd to be in the same plate, but who cares when it tastes so delicious.
Japanese Somen, Ginseng Wine, Jumbo Prawns & Scallop in Clear Essence
Velvety smooth Japanese somen served in a bowl of clear soup that is lightly infused with the essence of ginseng wine, accompanied with fresh prawns and scallop. Simple but luscious.
Chilled Water Chestnut Jelly, Strawberry-Red Bean Ice Cream
The meal ended with strawberry-red bean ice cream that is soft and creamy, and the combination of strawberry- red bean somehow brings in a subtle sour plum aftertaste. The chilled water chestnut jelly, on the other hand, is chewy with crunchy water chestnut bites.
