Jin Shan Lou (金山楼) @ Marina Bay Sands

It was my off day so I went to check out the Marina Bay Sands Sky Park with my friend. Indeed the view at the top of the Sky Park was magnificent. Unfortunately, at Marina Bay Sands, it was quite impossible to find "cheap food" restaurants except for 2 food kiosks at the retail area unless you enter the casino. From the map directory, it seemed like there are a few reasonable priced restaurants and a food court inside the casino.

Anyway after walking around, I settled at Jin Shan Lou a chinese restaurant that offered set dinner for 2 which cost $100 for 6 dishes. Food and service were good. Two dishes I enjoyed particularly were the steamed cod fish with broad bean crumbs and stir-fried prawn with blackberry mayonnaise honey mustard sauce. Both dishes had unique sauces which gave them the extra flavouring and texture making a common dish that you can even prepare at home stood out.

Braised Shark's Fin with Shredded Abalone 4/5

Braised Black Mushroom with Green Vegetable 4/5
