this was our first visit.. food was ok but the environment was a bit dirty.. i saw food scrap on the wall.. which was quite disgusting..

..i don't see much 黑椒 at all.. tasted the same as the regular 燒鴨..

..this is the reason why we went back for a 2nd time as LG said it tasted good..

we went back again the next week & the food were bad..
LG said there was only very little bit of shrimp in his 雲吞麵.. i ordered 叉燒河粉 but they gave me 麵!

..very rich & had a strong squash flavor

Lobster Cakes $12.95

Roast Prime Rib 8oz $24.95
Aged 40 days, mustard-crusted and slow-roasted. Served with jus and creamy horseradish sauce
..i guess medium rare is just too rare for LG; should order medium next time (IF we ever come again)..

Lamb Duo $26.95
Mint barbecue lamb shank and a double-cut marinated lamb chop, served with sweet potato fries
..the lamb chop tasted better.. the lamb shank was tender but without flavor.. but i liked the sweet potato with pint of salt on it, which made the sweet potato fries tasted better!

we had Cheesecake as dessert.. it's with  a pecan crust, topped with seasonal berries in an ice wine compote..
..LG liked the cheesecake.. he said it's very soft..
