After the mooncake demo, we can savor some of the Chinese dishes from Pearl Restaurant. To start, of course I opted for some soup. This one is Drunken Prawn, Sea Clam and Chicken. Love how they presented it with Live Fresh Seafood! I'm also loving the soup which is tasted very herbal !

Poached Cantonese Chicken Dumpling with Vegetables. This one was really- really yum! Love how light the dressing was, but it's perfectly matched with the savory dumplings.

Peking Duck was also nice and savory.

BBQ Charsew Chicken with Carrot Mantou. The filling actually tasted quite nice with nice chasiu flavor, but the mantou was too thick, so it's kind of make us full.

The Popiah actually tasted very nice! So many textures and perfectly seasoned !

And... some desserts ! Unfortunately I can't remembered all the names, but I really like the jelly that served with lime ! So light and refreshing!
