Weekend Food Tripping at: Golden Bay Seafood Restaurant

When you get an invite for a Chinese Lauriat Style, you better wear a comfortable clothing and expect yourself full for the rest of the night!  As you know, most of the lauriat style down here serves at least 6 courses meal!  You don't believe it?  Scroll down and don't tell me I did  not warn you! :) 

I attended my dad's "Organization Anniversary".  Aside from the wonderful dishes served, there were performance from China who came over to "wow" us.  Dragon dances and a lot of singing!  Would you believe the dinner starts at 8:00pm and ended around midnight? 

Cold Cut Combination
This is quite a different cold cut combination as they included "Calinfornia Maki" which isn't at par with the usual Chinese dish!  Cold cut usually consist of seaweeds, honeycured pork and soy chicken.

Steamed Suahe (Shrimps)
I did not even tasted this as I'm allergic to shrimp.  I just saw the reaction of the people around the table and I was told they're fresh!

Dried Scallop and Seafood Soup
Quite nice!  I popped in some anti-histamine at this stage as I have a feeling most of the meals served are seafood!  The soup tastes wonderful!!!  I can literally taste the scallops and my tongue felt a bit of shrimps in there!

Taro Duck
I am actually excited for this.  I love Taro Duck, but this one is made quite differently.  Most of the time, the taro and duck are layered onto each other.  You can taste the taro at the top and the duck meat at the bottom.  At this restaurant, I can't feel the texture of the duck as it was mixed inside the taro!

A closer look on the Taro Duck, a special sweet sauce comes with it

Salad Seafood Roll
A mix of fruits and shrimps with mayonnaise served deep fried.  Not the best I've tried.

Local Abalone with Mushrooms
Local or international Abalone, I don't care, abalones are rare and tastes really good.  I love the chewy texture mixed with sweet oyster sauce!

Sauteed Chicken with Veggies
It's more of chicken and celery!  I am not a huge celery fan and the chicken tastes a bit bland.  So I gave this a skip and saved my tummy for the next dish.

Assorted Meat Noodles
Most lauriat styled restaurant would serve rice or noodles at the end part as a "filler".  In Chinese Culture, rice isn't served unless asked for.  Don't ask me why, it's just part of the culture.  I am usually a noodle eater and I am saving up a space in my tummy for the noodles.  Unfortunately, I am almost impressed with the dishes served in this restaurant but the noodles ruined it :(  It tastes a bit weird, I guess it has this burnt smell.  Photo shown below looks great but it tastes weird inside my mouth. 

I did not take a photo of the dessert as I did not eat it anymore.  Too full to talk or even move!  Service is actually good and the waiters are quite attentive.  The restaurant has a wonderful ambiance even perfect for Wedding Reception.  Has ample parking space as well!
