    A Peek at the Menu at the New Majestic Restaurant in Singapore

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | August 20, 2010

    I paid another visit to The New Majestic, one of the restaurants I visited in my quest for the greatest Chinese restaurant in the world. We went there with Don and Laura, freshly married folks. When I visited in 2006, it had just opened. It continues. Lots of high-end ingredients (shark fin, abalone etc.) and modern twists — wasabi, foie gras, etc.

    Very pricey. But very good. Though is it 50x as good as your local hawker meal? Probably not. But different.

    Soft shelled crab with a creamy wasabi lime sauce + mango.

    Combination of crispy wasabi prawn, peking duck and
    pan-seared foie gras.

    Pork belly plus fried mantou.

    Dried chilli shrimp.

    And the Chinese obsession with the number 8 continues apace on the set menu prices (as seen below). $88 per person and $688 and $1288 for tables of 10.
