Birthday Dinner for Mum!

  June 18th was my mum's birthday and we decided to head over to Dragon Pearl to feast! It's basically where we go when we want an array of different cuisines all under one roof and the service and quality of food never disappoints. Bonus points for having food that Rich can eat!

When Richard and I arrived, we took a walk around the buffet making note of dishes that were vegan. I noticed that there weren't any inari sushi being put out (like they did before), so I asked for a manager and asked if they would be serving any. He told me to wait a moment and came back with a plate full of inari, made to order!

Inarizushi for Richard

My plate of salmon sashimi, salmon sushi, mango maki, spicy salmon maki and avocado cucumber maki

Singapore noodles, chili salt fried shrimp and mussels in black bean sauce

Cream of broccoli soup

Roast beef, mashed potatoes, grilled green beans, Yorkshire pudding and gravy

Peking duck wraps with scallions, hoisin sauce and cucumbers

Corn salad, marinated mushrooms, shrimp, seaweed salad, thai mango salad and a mussel with cocktail sauce

Fresh, made to order noodles in a spicy beef broth

Fries and gravy (all that was missing was cheese!), asperagus, baby corn, fried 'tempura' shrimp, broccoli and a curry fish ball

To-Fu-Fa, which is basically a tofu pudding. It's warm and served with a ginger sugar syrup.

Mini egg tar, mango pudding, Chinese sugar donut, sesame ball and a crunchy pastry covered in burnt sugar. SO GOOD.

P.S. We're visiting again this weekend. Oink!
