Marco Polo @ Jln Raja Chulan Part 1

6 months ago, when we got married, we had no idea where our dinner will be held, in fact, if we could have it our way, we would have opted to have the Wedding Dinner function, maybe in about a year or two.

Parents will always parents, they insisted that we organize the wedding dinner ASAP. Actually they already had something in mind, and when they say that we should organize, it meant they will do the stuff.

As such, we have been going to Marco Polo very often these past few months, and in this review, we had this like 2 months ago.





Marco Polo is having a very attractive promotion right now, and it has been running since February (after CNY). A set dinner of 4 dishes, for 4 pax, goes for 68++. Additional dishes come at Rm18 ++ each. Tidbits, towels, are additional of course.

The sharksfin soup is not in the promo, but we ordered to try out how they make them. I am not a sharksfin soup person, but parents say, if don't have sharksfin very paiseh... but to tell you the truth, I have already been bombarded by a few friends who are shark friendly....

The second dish was quite a nice dish. The stirfried vegetables, comes a surprisingly special dish for me. The vegetables came out very green, and very crispy. How la, at home cook also can't do like dat wo...

Their steamed fish was so so only, since it was a promotion, they probably gave us some kind of Patin Sangkar. It was just a steamed fish, with soy sauce....

Their sweet and sour pork was nice. Just like most hotels, their "gu lou yuk" is stir fried with the usual capsicums, tomato, pineapples, and stawberries. Yumm... nice, sweetish and sourish. Plus the pork they use, are of pretty good quality ones, its tender, juicy on the inside, and crispy on the outside.

Their roast chicken tasted quite nice and crispy, although I suspect that their roast chicken is a fast food item. Ready cooked, just chop and serve type of dish. The skin is cripsy, and meat moist.
