After wandering around the MGM for a bit, it was time for lunch. Fanny made a reservation at Imperial Court located inside the hotel.
The restaurant features Cantonese fare and serves authentic dishes with a modern twist. I was immediately drawn to the middle of the resaturant where a column with a carving of a dragon shined.
We were seated at a large table draped with a white tablecloth and decorated with colorful plates and chopstick rests.
We started off with some hot tea and a plate of assorted fruit.
It was time to enjoy some dim sum. We tried a few small plates, like the steamed rice rolls with scallops.
Served along with the handcrafted dumplings were soy sauce, a housemade XO sauce, and chili oil.
Fanny insisted on getting the steamed Chicken Feet with a homemade sauce. I was down for that. Tasty!
The steamed pork dumplings with shrimp, Yunnan ham, and spinach were so pretty.
I also tried something different – steamed chicken, fish maw, ham, and mushrooms wrapped in bean curd skin. It definitely had some interesting textures going on.
She also had the crispy fried Taro Dumplings with assorted seafood and topped with caviar.
The steamed Nanxiang pork dumplings were great.
Our dim sum lunch at Imperial Court was really good. We had the whole day ahead of us and there was quite a bit Fanny wanted to show me. Check, please!
