I just had dinner at New Dragon Gate Seafood Restaurant with my business partner and spouse, inside Red Rock Hotel, formerly known as Mandarin Hotel along Macalister Road. It is located conveniently near our condo and we were out for dinner at around 9:00pm where most of the eateries are closing.
This lights of fortune with crystal ball on top caught my attention and I took the opportunity to snap it for posterity. It has the shape of Chinese money of gold nugget.
That’s me seated on a carved wooden chair at the lobby of Red Rock Hotel just before dinner on the first floor.
This is the ambience with lilac coloured covered chairs with white ribbons and red lanterns suspended on the ceiling.
This is the printout or design of the restaurant serviette with address, logo, etc.
This was the first dish of black and yellow Japanese tofu, topped with fried mushrooms, spring onions and red chilies. It was quite delicious, with soft texture that is ubiquitous of tofu.
Here the second dish was served consisting of scallops with sliced lotus root, green peas, asparagus and carrots.
This was the third and final serving of 2 piecces of cod fish with black Japanese sauce, garnished with honeydew melon scoops, radish flower and green salad on the side.
These are some of the appetisers like peanuts while waiting for the main dish to arrive which was tofu with chilies, pu-er tea, on an embroidered table cloth.
Here are free fruits on the house consisting of cut watermelon, honeydew and papaya.
This green leaflet put on the table for the taking show the various set meal combinations with respective prices. Overall, the food was good with plenty of privacy – just the 2 of us were dining in an entire empty restaurant that can cater to a wedding banquet. I shall be going down south tomorrow morning to Kuala Lumpur and by Friday, will be down south further and come back to KL to attend the Mooncake Festival sponsorship dinner table of 10 that was paid for by our company in a hotel.
Hence, this blog may or may not be updated for another week as I shall be on the go all the time traveling for work.
