Ah Yat Seafood Restaurant: 5-Course Abalone Set Meal

This is the 2nd time we took up this Groupon deal. It's simply a steal with a $26/pax for a 5-course set meal that includes abalone and lobster meat.

The Restaurant:  It's located in Hotel Grand Pacific with typical semi-formal dining style. But the restaurant's look is of little consequences.

The Food:

Lobster Claw Meat & Minced Seafood in Thick Soup:  9.5 / 10. The seafood ingredients are fresh and chunky. Soup is right: isn't too thick or thin. Yummy!

Stewed Whole Fresh Abalone w/ Japanese Mushroom:  8.5 / 10. The abalone is slightly chewy. Just slightly. But I wouldn't expect anything soft at this price.

Deep-Fried Fillet in Japanese Style:  7.5 / 10. While the crust is crunchy enough, the filling lacked fishy taste.

Braised E-fu Noodle:  7.5 / 10. The noodle is slightly oily. Nice smooth texture, and taste.

Double-Boiled Bird's Nest w/ Almond Cream:  7 / 10. While I enjoy almond cookie, I don't really care for almond sweet dessert. But it wasn't overly sweet, which I prefer, and there may have been a few slither of bird's nest.

Overall:  8 / 10 if paying full price. 9.5 / 10 if paying coupon prices. If you haven't been to this restaurant, it's natural to think that for the price paying, the quality would be below par. But this isn't the case. For the given price ($26/pax) that we paid, you could typically only get a Japanese ramen soup.

If you enjoy these Chinese delicacies, and haven't tried this restaurant, I don't know what are you waiting for.

We were there on Friday evening and was quite busy. Even though we booked before we arrived, we still had to wait for more than 5 mins. This just made the food tasted that much more better.
