I joined that evening for a food tasting session at Grand Imperial, BSC Bangsar. The place located at the 3rd Floor. It’s not that hard to find the place and it’s not crowded either. The decoration of the restaurant is simple. The waitress are very friendly as well and attentive too. The prices on the menu are on the high end and the quality of the food is quite impressive as well.
The standard placements of cutlery are neat and elegant. The air-condition well adjusted to the temperature as it’s not too cold or too hot. I love few of the arts placed on the wall of the restaurant. I feel peaceful and calm as the ambiance inside the restaurant gave a zen feeling. Of course, there are private rooms available complete with karaoke equipments if you wish to go crazy after meal.
These are the list of food on the menu selected for the food tasting package:
The taste of the appetizers very rich with the marinated ingredients that gives the satisfaction even after the 1st bite. Not too salty for starters and the taste obviously is properly prepared with great preparation as the seasonings are well adjusted. There are choices of appetizers on the basket served with both hot and cold types.
It was served hot to the table as I’m quite particular when comes to soup. Certain restaurants serve their customers with cold soup. The soup is served well with the ingredients that also not too salty either. Not too sticky as it looked like when I see the texture before I tried it.
The meat is very tender and the seasoning didn’t make the food very salty. The most important thing is the meat are well cooked. There is no trace of blood inside the chicken as I do have experience that the chicken meat was not well cooked and the meat is very chewy.
#4 Steamed Fish
Texture is smooth and the taste is great. Not too salty or not to tasteless. The fish is not overcooked either and I keep eating it after a bite. The fish is served fresh as well. The sauce is perfect to mix with rice for better taste. It’s appetizing to me as the sauce is not too overwhelming with its seasonings too.
This is one of favorite dish of the night. Prawn is fresh and the soup is SUPERB! What can I say more? This is the perfect dish to flood my rice bowl with the soup. Rice and the soup equal perfect combination for non-stop munching for more.
#6 Vegetables with Mushroom
As shiny as it seems on the surface, it’s also a perfect choice for vegetarian. Broccoli not overcooked. Mushroom is smooth and soft to chew and the gravy not too salty.
#7 Fried Rice
I love the presentation of the food. Neat and attractive. It was served hot as well. Rice well fried and not overcooked. Rice is maintained soft and tasty. I didn’t eat much here as the food before this filled up most of the spaces in my belly. Ho-Ho!
Food Tasting Half Time…….
The red bean is too sweet. However, I’m not really a big fan of red bean. Managed to take few sips and I think that the dessert is alright for me. It was served hot and the taste is very nice to drink too. Light and not too overwhelming as well.
This one? Simple and nice. Perfect finale after heavy meals in between.
