Shang Palace at Shenzhen Shangri-la Hotel

Not going to go into much detail here. Just wanted to let you all know (if you haven’t heard already) that there’s an all-you-can-eat dimsum lunch menu at Shang Palace at Shenzhen Shangri-la Hotel for only RMB 98! I think between my friend and I, for RMB 196 (Yes! RMB 98 per head and no extra service charge!) we bankrupted the restaurant.

This reminds me of the RMB 78 brunch at Lynn (琳怡中餐厅) across from Plaza 66 in Shanghai. I wonder if that deal is still around. It was fantastic.

Anyway, in particular, I want to point you to 3 dishes we thought were excellent:

  • Soup Dumplings (灌湯餃) – of course, don’t expect the same quality, size and appearance as ones you might find at Yixin Restaurant (益新), where all the soup is contained in the dumpling and you must poke it and let all the soup out … nothing like that.
  • X.O. Sauce Fried Rice Noodle Rolls (X.O. 醬炒腸粉) – I like this because I think most of the time, they fry this dish when you order them. They didn’t just pick them up from a pot full of it because its still a bit crunchy on the outside and really hot inside. The hotel-made X.O. sauce is also slightly spicy, but the dried shrimp and the conpoy help add a lot of flavour to it.
  • Steamed Beef Balls with Bean Curd Skin (山竹牛肉球) – Really soft beef balls and crunchy, although the “softness” might have something to do with soda powder, which makes this dish the one and only dish I am fine if the chef decides to use soda powder to make the beef less tender. And “crunchy” from the generous amount of chopped water chestnuts (馬蹄) and green onion adding into the beef balls.

Other dimsums were pretty decent too, but these 3 stood out from the rest.

Seriously, between the 2 of us, we had about RMB 380-400 worth of food, so the deal was definitely a great value. You’re very likely to hit the target anyway, so I recommend you stick with it.
