majestic does a mother’s day ala carte buffet lunch at S$68pax++ with 15% citibank discounts.

a new item on the ala carte buffet menu was chilli lobster (used to be a NOT great chilli crab). for me, still not great la…

i did not find a recent post on majestic on my blog. perhaps i did not record.

the one i had was 3 years ago, a world gourmet summit dinner in apr2013.

roast duck, roast chicken, char siew, siew yoke

roast duck was especially good. we had a few individual helpings. char siew was good. siew yoke ok not as good as the usual cube roast pork servings in these kind of good restaurants.

lotus bun, pumpkin, braised duck wing

lotus bun, pumpkin, braised duck wing

the lotus bun was good. we shared one among 5 of us. i took the braised duck wing. the pumpkin with 肉松was non-descript for me. wife liked it though.

century egg porridge皮蛋粥

i wanted to try the porridge. took a tiny bit. it was good!

braised belly pork卤肉

the braised belly pork was very flavourful. texture was tender though it didn’t look it in the large serving claypot.

har gau虾饺

from the ala carte menu, har gao was average. many dimsum places like crystal jade, imperial treasure better.

crab roe sharksfin soup

the crab roe sharksfin soup was limited to one serving each. top draw stuff!

chilli lobster

the chilli lobster was so so for me.

chilli gravy was good especially with the bun which was excellent.

lobster meat was not bouncy. did not feel like live or fresh lobster.

the thai lemongrass chilli lobster i had recently at red house was far, far better.

wasabi prawns

wasabi prawns

wasabi prawns were very good. tops!

did not look it though with too much of the green mayo. but the batter was very good, not like most places where they were thick, hard, tough. prawns were very fresh, water melon a great balance, counterpoint.

chilean seabass

i love chilean seabass, & majestic served very good steamed ones in their regular menu.

here it was non descript.

锅仔牛柳beef ribs korean style - galbi

锅仔牛柳beef ribs korean style – galbi

the galbi style beef ribs were ok.

somehow it works better when served in individual small portion courses.

lobster crab roe broth

the sharksfin soup was limited to one order. there were like 3 or 4 other soups unlimited orders. we ordered 2 lobster crab roe broth to share.

a pretty good soup, though no comparison with the crab roe sharksfin soup.

spinach wolfberry soup

spinach wolfberry in superior broth

the spinach wolfberry was good. this something i can do easily myself.

oyster mee sua蚝仔面线

oyster mee sua蚝仔面线

wife love the oyster mee sua.

oyster mee sua蚝仔面线

oyster mee sua蚝仔面线

it was very tasty with nice oyster flavour.

this also something quite easy to do myself-basically a good stock, as also for the spinach wolfberry, that’s about it.

salted egg custard buns流沙包

the salted egg custard buns流沙包 was very good here.

i varied the recipe according to the estimate amount i wanted to cook the the ingredients i had-

  1. fry prawn heads & shells in oil & some butter till fragrant. add 500ml chicken stock. boiled for 1.2 hr. add water as required.
  2. fry thinly sliced belly pork & set aside.
  3. add cut chilli, 2 tsp chopped garlic & fry in 2 tbsp oil. add 2 eggs & scramble.
  4. add yellow noodles & bee hoon (both soaked to clean & softened & then drained) & fry short while on high fire.
  5. add 1/2 the stock reduce till almost dry to infuse the flavours.
  6. add remaining stock, prawns & cut squids, and belly pork and cover. manage the stock so noodles is reduced & very flavourful but still wet.

it was my first time doing fried hokkien prawn noodles.

the taste was excellent really. i think better than many average fried hokkien noodles at hawker stalls. still need to try couple times more to see if i can reproduce this consistently & also if i have to make a larger quantity.
