Shang Palace Restaurant Review

: Shang Palace, the third restaurant of the Shangri-La Hotel, Paris after La Bauhinia and L'Abeille, is dedicated to Chinese fare. Chef Frank Xu delivers a well-crafted cuisine, yet without boldness save for a few exceptions. In a plush and exotic dining room in the basement of the hotel, patrons are seated in comfortable chairs amid the lacquered woodwork and vases. Dishes are placed on a swiveling tray in the centre of the table. Start with dim sum --- the vast array takes in red rice flour rolls with shrimps, and sweet buns stuffed with barbecued pork. As main courses, in addition to the traditional roast Peking duck, barbecued pork spare ribs with honey sauce, sweet-and-sour pork and sautéed scallops with seasonal vegetables are served up. As an accompaniment, Xu proposes fried rice mixed with ingredients such as egg, shrimp, chicken, barbecued pork, bamboo shoots, mushroom, green peas and ham. Curiously enough, the desserts have the same impact as the dim sum, the chilled mango cream with pomelo and sago exploding with flavor. Conscientious staff and extensive wine list.
