Do you remember the fish? Yup, it was the arowana fish that you can find in Shang Palace, Shangri - La Hotel Jakarta. You can see it on my previous review for Shang Palace HERE.

Located on the Ground Floor Shangri-La Hotel Jakarta, Shang Palace will amazed you with their Asian delicacies. For your information, starting from January 2014, Shang Palace served an all you can eat buffet. You will be indulged with their wonderfully cooked and assorted Asian treats.

You can immediately feel Shang Palace's oriental sumptuous atmosphere once you step your foot into this place. Red and yellow decorated this lavish place, beautiful trinkets and outstanding chandeliers were put to upraise the level of luxuriousness.

I went to Shang Palace on 8 February 2014 with Selba and Yenny. Accompanied with Joris Satyadharma as Digital Marketing Manager of Shangri-La Hotels and Felicia Setiawan, Director of Communications Shangri-La Hotel makes our brunch at Shang Palace merrier. I feel so blessed that I have got the opportunity 

Because it was still on Chinese New Year spirit, Shang Palace decorate their environment with angpaos, chinese coins and lanterns. It makes the oriental image become denser and more attached on the atmosphere.

You can order Shang Palace's all you can eat dim sum from your table on weekdays, but on weekends, Shang Palace displayed their assorted Asian delights on self service buffets that divided into several criteria like appetizers, steamed dim sums, fried dim sums, chang fens and desserts. 

Well, here it is:

- Appetizer -

Mix Fruit Salad 
Marinated Baby Octopus with Spicy Sauce
Chilled Slice Beef Shank
Crispy Fried Eel with Salt & Pepper

On the appetizer area, you can find Mix Fruit Salad, Marinated Baby Octopus with Spicy Sauce, Chilled Slice Beef Shank, and Crispy Fried Eel with Salt & Pepper. To be honest, you should not miss the marinated baby octopus with spicy sauce. Its taste really delicious with a hint of freshness that you cannot forget and the unique textures that you will scream for more.

You also have to try their chilled slice beef shank. I really love its fragrance, collaborate with its smooth texture and beautiful taste, makes this appetizer is also one that you cannot miss.

- Congee -

Fresh Grouper Fillet Congee
Century Egg and Shredded Chicken Congee

One thing for sure, Shang Palace's century egg and shredded chicken congee is the one that you have to put it on your "must try" item. For your information, Congee or conjee is a type of rice porridge or gruel popular in many Asian countries. When eaten as plain rice congee, it is most often served with side dishes. When additional ingredients, such as meat, fish, and flavorings, are added while preparing the congee, it is most often served as a meal on its own, especially when one is ill. Names for congee are as varied as the style of its preparation. Despite its many variations, it is definitionally a thick porridge of rice largely disintegrated after prolonged cooking in water. 

I really like the congee, so thick and delicious. Sweet, bitter, sour and savory combined perfectly so it will brings a beautiful symphony in your mouth.

- Pan-Fried Selection -

Pan Fried Cantonese Turnip Cake with Chicken Floss
Deep Fried Yam Dumpling Filled with Pork and Seafood
Fried Tofu Pocket with Prawn and Sichuan Chili
Crispy Wonton Dumplings
Deep Fried Crab Stick with Prawn Fritters
Deep Fried Glutinous Skin Puffs with Assorted Seafood and Spices

On pan fried selection, the most delicious dish was Deep Fried Crab Stick with Prawn Fritters. Actually, Fritter is a name applied to a wide variety of fried foods, usually consisting of a portion of batter or breading which has been filled with bits of meat, seafood, fruit, or other ingredients. I really like its textures, crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. Sweet and savory perfectly combined and compliments each other. I cannot stop eating this dish, so delish!

- Chang Fen -
(Rice Flour Roll)

Minced Beef Chang Fen
Steamed Barbecued Pork Rolls
Steamed Prawn Rolls with Bitter Gourd

My heart fell with Shang Palace's Chang Fen selection. I really like the steamed barbecued pork rolls and the steamed prawn rolls. It has a very delicate texture and moist stuffing. The sweetness from the meat collaborate beautifully with the savory sauce and mild chang fen. Yup, I have noticed the thickness from the chang fen is not consistent. But I still love it and now I am craving for this thing.

- Steamed Selection -

Crystal Prawn Dumpling
Chicken Siu Mai Topped with Tobiko
Steamed Chicken Feet with Black Pepper Sauce
Steamed Pork Rib with preserved Vegetable
Steam Beef Ball with Bean Curd Skin

On the steamed selection of Shang Palace's buffet, the star of this selection was steamed pork rib with preserved vegetables. This dish has to be eaten while hot, that is why on the steamed selection, Shang Palace put a steamer.

The Pork Rib is so soft and moist, It might a little bit too greasy for  some people, but actually the greasiness is the thing that makes this dish so unique and delicious. But please be noted, this pork rib must be eaten as soon as possible, it is because the best timing to eat it when it still hot.

- Desserts -

Red Bean Cream with Dumplings
Sesame Balls
Oven baked Mini Egg Tarts
Chilled Mango Pudding
Chinese Red Bean Pancake
Ice Cream

Chilled Mango Pudding is one of Shang Palace's dessert that you have to try. You will taste the silky smooth texture and the mesmerizing taste. You also have to try their egg tarts. Indeed, my friend told me that their egg tart base is kind a hard, but luckily mine was good. The base is not that hard, in fact, it was perfect. the sweetness is also fit with my taste, it is not overpowering the egg tart. But the most fun part is, you can eat it with a scoop of Shangri-La homemade ice cream.

My dining experience in Shang Palace is quite fun and memorable. Me and my friends can have a feast accompanied with Felicia and Joris. I feel so blessed that I have got that kind of experience. 

Have a great day and Godspeed.
