After our busy day of flying back from Melbourne and dancing in the park, K, V and I rested for a bit before heading out for dinner.  Our original plan was to go to a seafood restaurant and order some mud crab.

We arrived at the restaurant for a late dinner (8 pm?) and were asked to wait.  Apparently the big dining room for the restaurant was booked for a wedding banquet and the smaller area by the lobby was limited public seating.  While V and I waited for a table, K wandered into the restaurant to check out the tanks.  He noted that there appeared to be only one crab in the tank and that crab was a bit deficient (missing legs/claw).  As we debated over whether to stay or go, we also noticed some rowdy people in the public dining area. Hmm… not an ideal atmosphere for dining.

Taking in all the signs that perhaps this was not the day to stop for mud crab, we left the restaurant in search of dinner elsewhere.  We walked several blocks and ended up at Chefs Gallery.  Although Chefs Gallery was busy, we were seated within minutes.

Chefs Gallery has a mouth-watering menu.  The picture-perfect presentation of each item caused some difficulty with decision-making… especially when we were starving.  Have a look at the Chefs Gallery menu online to see what I mean and check out below to see what we finally ordered.

Everything we ordered looked just like the photos in the menu.  Luckily, we didn’t have to suppress our hunger for too long as the food was served quickly.  The food was fantastic!  It all tasted delicious and it would be hard for me to pick out only one favourite.  If anything, I can identify the  least favourite of what we ordered – shui mai.  Not because of the overall taste of the shui mai but, if you look closely at the photo above, you might notice that they forgot to remove the innards of the second prawn from the right.  Yes, that’s the one I happened to pick up…

To end off a fine-tasting evening, V and I ordered dessert.  As it was the weekend before Hallowe’en, we ordered the steamed sesame buns shaped like cute (devil) piggy faces.  If I wasn’t already full from dinner, I would have ordered a few more.
