Glitter Palace Seafood Restaurant, Bandar Mahkota Cheras, Selangor

After a photography session near Viva Home in the morning, my family and i headed to Bandar Mahkota Cheras for lunch. My dad recommended this restaurant as he has been before. Located in a relatively new shoplot scheme, this restaurant looks glamorous on the outside. The section where the entrance is was plain looking but when we moved to the other side, draped with curtains that were drawn when the crowd came in, was more exquisite. We rearranged the 12-person table to fit the eight of us, sat and ordered. Service was fine and lunch was quick to be served.

Marmite Chicken was deliciously tender. The gravy wasn't too thick so the flavours wasn't overpowering. Even the skin remained crispy. My grandpa loves marmite chicken and i'm pretty sure he enjoyed this.

Guinness Stout 'Pai Kuat' Pork Ribs was delectable. The meat was well marinated, easy to bite and easy to chew. Slightly sweet but good to eat with rice. Although both these dishes are visually similar, i preferred the pork ribs. 

Steamed 'Sotong' Squid with a twist of Thai flavours. The gravy was appetizing- slightly sourish with chilli and other ingredients. The squid wasn't rubbery and i'd prefer it slightly softer.

For greens, we had simple Choy Sum. Tasty but a little overpriced.

One of the highlights had to be this: Claypot Fish with Chinese Wine. The sauce was amazing! The smart addition of wine to this blend of gravy made this dish stand out, aromatic and flavourful. The flavours burst in my mouth. The fish was just nice. I gathered that this is one of the signature dishes of the restaurant as every table has this. Definitely worth it and recommended.

This Beancurd 'Taufu' with vegetables and minced meat may look simple and ordinary- but it is not! One of the more memorable dishes, the taufu was tasty, smooth and soft. Good to eat the taufu as it is, but the toppings amplified the flavours of this dish. A little stretch of the pocket though.

Overall, lunch felt sumptuous but some dishes were reasonably priced. I enjoyed the gravy of almost all the dishes, mixing rice and all, to a satisfying meal. A pleasant place for a family dinner. Only that it's rather far from where i stay.

Grateful with the delicious meals, it's time i add one more round to my run.
