Reunion Dinner @ Dragon Star Seafood Restaurant.

This year's reunion dinner is the first time that we are eating out.

The two ladies chefs of the family are getting old by the year and the hassles of preparing and cleaning up for my family of eighteen, is no laughing matter !

We choose Dragon Star Seafood Restaurant over others was because of their food consistency and reasonable pricing.

This dinner set menu is their top of the range.

Service was not as efficient as normal and the staff were running all over the place.

Prosperity Salmon Yee Sang-we added some cashew nut to it-the plum sauce was not overly sweet and the shredded fresh and pickled ingredients were crunchy with every bite,

Shark's fin soup with scallop & crab meat-not much of shark's fin to be found - the broth was smooth and of the right density even though it's was thickened with corn starch-generous amount of crab meat and tiny bits of scallop..

Steamed Pomfret fish-star of the night-fresh and fleshy bathed in superior grade soy sauce and peanut oil-garnished with scallion and cilantro.

Half roasted Chicken & half roasted suckling piglet-pig's skin was crispy with a thin layer of fat while the chicken meat was tender and muscled with a real crisp skin-served with some prawn crackers.

Stewed Abalone with sea cucumber & mushroom-felt cheated with such mini abalone-Shiitake mushroom was of inferior grade while the sea cucumber was crunchy and thick-served with blanched brocolli and smooth gravy.

Baked crystal prawn with lemon sauce-the sea prawns were fresh, juicy and of above average sized with a sweet and zesty lemon sauce.

Bailing mushroom with vegetables-mushroom were sliced into small sizes served with blanched broccoli, "wu har" (konnyaku) and tied tau kan (soft and smooth beancurd sheet) and smooth gravy.

Fried rice with waxed meat-glutinous rice was not too sticky served with waxed duck, Chinese sausage and duck's liver sausage infused with wine-very fulfilling ! my mum's favorite dish.

Chinese new year fancy duet-was basically yam/sweet potato/nian guo-lightly batter and deep fried together-very good textures.

Sea coconut with Longan with some lemon juice-the sea coconut was too tough and the canned longan was passable-a refreshing touch to end a great reunion dinner.

Saw ur post on ur reunion dinner at Dragon Star Seafood Restaurant
We had our family lunch there on the 3rd day (double celebrations of CNY and birthday)

We had the same menu as the one you posted on your blog with the exception - the Fried Rice was replaced with Longevity Noodles

Frankly - for the price we paid (RM718 nett) - We felt cheated with the mediocre food served - in terms of quality and quantity. Guess it'll be our 1st and last visit there..

Hauz of Treasures-like you,i expected the dinner to be exceptionally good because of it's pricing but it was not to be-anyway their ala-carte menu is better.
