An established institution for Cantonese cuisine at Island Shangri-La, Summer Palace
has a décor that fits its name, complete with grand chandeliers and gold-coloured decorative features along the walls. The menu, however, showcases its charms in more of a subtle manner. The menu shows an emphasis on fresh ingredients and simple flavours and the culinary team’s expertise shine through in dishes like the stewed pork brisket with fresh yam in Hangzhou style—each slice of brisket had the ideal ratio of meat cooked to tender and fat that melted like butter, coated with a sauce that was flavourful but not overpowering. A dish of stir-fried fresh lobster is accompanied with crispy preserved vegetables that added an interesting texture and umami to the dish, and dried goji berries that added
a hint of unique sweetness to
the seafood. Make sure to end the meal with the chilled sago cream with mango juice and pomelo—a mixture that had the right balance of creaminess and mango flavour, with the pomelo broken into such consistent sizes that it blends well into sago for an even mix of both ingredients in each delicious spoonful.

Tatler Tip

It’s easy to get distracted by the other dishes in the menu but do order the century egg with pickled ginger as a starter to wake your taste buds – care is taken to choose quality cured century eggs, and the ginger is pickled to a soft texture that makes it incredibly moreish.
