How was it?
Complementary prawn crackers
For dinner on my graduation day, my father suggested we celebrate at Marigold Restaurant. There's free parking and who doesn't love a bit of peking duck? I left most of the ordering up to others, apparently the one dish that I wanted was not worthy of getting ordered ("We can make that home, why order it? Fine.").
I found that the ginger and shallots did overpower the oysters. I prefer my oysters to be fresh with just a bit of lemon and pepper. But they were still good.
The peking duck was great. The pancake was soft and the meat was very juicy. However, I normally find peking duck really greasy and oily, so I can normally only have one pancake. Luckily we had a whole slew of people tonight to assist!
The rest of the dishes were well received and most of them were polished up. The Fukien fried rice was a definite crowd pleaser, saucy and flavoursome. I personally enjoyed the steamed fish and the beancurd.
I think the best things about Chinese restaurants are the free fruit and desserts at the end of your meal! The sweet ginger soup was interesting and quite refreshing. And after that heavy dinner, I felt quite cleansed :)
All the typical things you'd expect to find in a Chinese Restaurant. The big gaudy decor, and the big fish tanks. Haphazard service and people screaming at each other. All adding to the experience. The food was enjoyable, but not something that I could do often. The free parking is a definite bonus though.
