On top of a complimentary night's stay, we also received some dining credit from the hotel. Granted our dining credit could have gone further at either Shang Palace or The Line, we had dinner at Nadaman as my dad joined us for dinner (the rest of the coop were in Shanghai) and he was in the mood for Japanese.
P.S. the food is good but go only if you have dining credit, someone is treating or you are on corporate account.
Among the many other things we ordered, kw and dad shared a sashimi platter. I didn't have any (8 more weeks, hang in there!) but there were no complaints from that department SO I'm pretty sure it was as good as the other dishes.
The best thing we took away from the Horizon Club Lounge was advice from one of their staff to try the lamb teppanyaki at Nadaman. The lamb, done medium, was gloriously gamy and incredibly tender.
Next day, breakfast was either the international buffet at The Line or Continental line-up at BLU Restaurant. Naturally, we went to The Line because we need breakfast for Man vs. Food champions and not Tour De France Winners. The spread at The Line was impressive, featuring local delights and western comfort foods. I snapped a few pictures before succumbing to greed.
Very good dim sum too, especially the har gow
Fried rice *love*
Eggy, rich-with-filling spinach quiche
Open-face cereal bowls
All sorts of pastries
The first couple of plates often start off innocently enough; then, I suddenly remember why I'm on the mailing list of Spanx.
Thanks Shangri La, you have been awesome!
But it was time to head back to reality and funny enough, we missed good ol' seventy-six =)
