And then there was the fine dining Cantonese experience at Shang Palace. This gem also holds a Michelin Star.
The night before heading off to Anacapri, we took in the delicious cuisine of Chef Lee. I must confess I’m not too familiar with Cantonese cuisine, but I also must confess starting at the apex is twofold – – consuming the best and then wondering where to find that which is comparable. After being seated and greeted by our server, we had the pleasure of meeting Mr. William Lusteau, the manager of Shang Palace, who along with our server expressed the Chef’s desire to treat us with a few extra items – – my kind of experience.
We had several exquisite menus to choose from we decided on Menu Jade, which featured items ranging from an assortment of barbecued meats, braised eggplant with diced chicken and salty fish, to a delicious chilled mango cream dessert that was absolutely divine. We also received a very special treat near the end of our meal – – Kweichow Moutai. If you have no idea as to what this is do a little research – – It was spectacular!!!!
The experience was terrific, I’m looking forward to returning and hoping to find more Cantonese cuisine on this palate pleasing journey.
The experience at Shang Palace was terrific. I’m looking forward to returning and having Chef Lee wow us again. His Cantonese cuisine exposed my palate to combinations of flavors and textures that I’ll forever use to access my future encounters of Cantonese cuisine and other adventurous chefs’ passions.
