For my parent’s 25th wedding anniversary, we had a fancier dinner at Neptune Seafood Restaurant. I haven’t been here in a really long time like 5+ years. Since it was a special occasion, we went for one of their set menus. We chose one that was for 6 people when we only had 4 but it was a better deal. There was another set menu for 4 people that cost the same ($198) but with less food and they seemed quite similar too.
So I feel really guilty for this… but we had Shark Fin Soup. Dum dum dummm yes we had this prized Chinese delicacy. I’m quite impartial to shark fin soup since I don’t think the shark fin adds much to the soup in general. Also, there wasn’t even much shark fin.
Next we had one of my favourite dishes: Peking Duck! It was carved tableside too.
The server also asked if we preferred more meat or more skin for the wraps. We went with a bit more meat.
The wraps/crepes for the duck seemed to be more flour-y and thicker than usual but I didn’t mind.
Next we had lobster and I’m not really sure how it was cooked… but it was probably fried with some egg or something yellow? It was good but then I realized that lobsters actually don’t have that much meat on them. There were 2 lobsters here.
We also had this really delicious pork dish! However, it was quite fatty but deliciously tender and it was mostly boneless.
Then we had some Bok Choy cooked in a broth with vermicelli. Nothing special here.
Then we had Steamed Tilapia and it was garnished with a lot of red chili peppers and green onion! The fish was superbly smooth!!! I also liked the way they served it cut up into sections already.
Finally we had the rest of the duck which was stir fried with some onions, celery and peppers along with vermicelli.
For dessert, we had red bean soup and some almond cookies.
Surprisingly, we actually managed to finish most of the food! We didn’t order any rice though and the portions for some of the dishes weren’t that big afterall. Overall dinner was pretty satisfying and my fave dish was still the Peking duck. Service was good but not particularly outstanding.
