Imbi Palace Rebranding @ Grand Palace (Pavilion KL)

20 Comments
It was an auspicious evening Imbi Palace Group of Restaurants played host to 140 honored guests including our blogger friends as well as friends from the media to share the momentous occasion. Launching the rebranding signifies a new milestone on their journey, and a symbol of more exciting things to come.


Earlier this year, we closed down our outlet on Jalan Imbi to make way for the development projects in the city. This was our first outlet, the place where it all started, and we were leaving. Imbi Palace Restaurant would be gone forever. This is why, after some thought we decided to change our company name to the Imbi Palace Group.” said Mr. Lum during his speech.

Mr. Lum mentioned that the Imbi Palace Restaurant history and heritage will continue to live on in the company name. With the new name, a new logo now represents the restaurants. As with the previous logo, the corporate colour is Gold. Gold represents the gold standards adhere to in the food, in terms of taste and quality and service excellence. The Chinese calligraphy stroke in the new logo stands for culture, tradition and art.

“At the Imbi Palace Group of Restaurants, we want to share our passion for food with you and your loved ones and bring excitement to your palate.” Mr. Lum added.



So, it was my honor to be part of them.


Grand Palace is indeed a grandiose restaurant , located on the sixth floor inside Pavilion.


Look at their majestic chandelier hanging on the ceiling.
Dining in such sophisticated restaurant indeed made me felt somewhat comfortable, and at the same time , every move I made has to be extra cautious .;P 



The bloggers group picha!


Kelly  and my Anna.



Naomi and ah Bok.



Double Boiled Cordyceps Flower with Top Shell & Fish Maw (RM28.00)
It  is a very healthy and nutritious soup...

The broth was light and sweet, it gave a clean aftertaste; the crodycep flower taste rubbery pleasant.
I don't like fish maw, so I gave it to Yvonne! ;D
This soup also improve skin complexion, nourishes our Yin and cleanses our kidney.


Crispy Golden Peking Duck (RM70.00)


I just couldn't resist the temptation of the aromatic and crispy duck skin.

Peking Duck is popular duck dish from Beijing that has been prepared since the imperial era. Today, it is considered one of China's national foods.

This dish is appreciated for its thin crispy golden skin with just the right amount of meat.


This is what you need : Spring onion,cucumber,  flat dough, and sweet sauce.


 To enjoy this dish, take the skin and meat, add some scallion and our specially prepared hoisin sauce and wrap it in the home-made thin pancakes called Momo at your table. If you do it right, when you bite into it, the juices from the meat will trickle between your finger tip. 



Oh-so fantabulous!

Then I made myself one..


Pan Fried Stuffed Scallops (RM14.00)


The scallop is extremely huge and succulent because Palace Group only choose the finest scallops from the icy cold waters of Canada. This is then combined with Banana Prawns from the Gulf of Carpenteria.
 Aside from that, the stuffed prawns and spring onion in the center gives the entire dish a extra punch ,to create two distinct flavors and aromas,  plus the slightly charred surface coating - I love it to the max.


8 Treasures Truffles Chicken (RM80.00)


Crispy Boneless Chicken stuffed with Truffle Oil Mushrooms


For this particular dish, the chicken is prepared by stuffing 8 different types of mushrooms that has been infused with truffle sauce. The entire chicken is hung up to roast to bring out the rich flavor of the chicken meat while maintaining a crispy skin on the outside. Due to the “hanging”, you will notice that the neck of the chicken is longer than usual, and that is how the name, Kookoo chicken comes about.   

Loads of stuffed mushroom!!

The skin of the chicken is apparently more crispier than the Pecking Duck I had earlier.
Indeed a good dish.

BBQ Broiled Spanish Pork Ribs (RM158.00)

The ribs are from the Spanish Iberian pig, which is known for its nutty flavour, and its delicate melt-in-your-mouth marbling. The Iberian pig’s diet of acorns gives it a uniquely tender, rich and rosy meat.




Salad -goes with the ribs to flush down all the grease in your guy. ;P


It's sooooo fun to see ah bok and Anna  play with the porky ribs , so I took part too! ;D

That look.. HAHAHAHAH!
We are family, brother , sister and me!



South African Dried Abalone (Promo – RM 88.00 per piece)
 the South African Dried Abalone looks like a golden ingot that signifies wealth and prosperity. Harvested from the unpolluted seas off the coast of Hermanus, the quality of the abalone is assured because we follow international Food Safety methodology, that is, the HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points), in its preparation process. Notice the texture of the abalone is sticky, rich and chewy.
The most important element in this dish is the thick and mellow gravy. The abalone was braised until just nice, not too soft, nor too hard neither .

RM168 per piece , but now all Grand Palace outlet are having promotion - where each abalone only cost RM88. 



(The word 18-head is a measurement unit in Chinese kitchen for the size of the abalone. This means you get 18 pieces per 600 gram – which is a very large abalone. We normally sell this for RM168, but for our promotion period, you can have this at RM88 per piece – while stocks last.)




LanZhou Knife Shaved Ramen (RM10.00)

The next dish is our Lan Zhou Knife Shaved Ramen. This is a delicacy from Lan Zhou, GanSu, China and is a heritage food enjoyed for generations. The Ramen is shaved off a ball of dough and as such none are identical. Today’s Ramen will be served in a pickled vegetable soup.



The coriander pungency was overwheming in this bowl of 'la mien', 
noodles were more 'chewier' than the typical egg noodle; the spiciness level was remarkably mild and I have no complaints. ;)

Fried La Mein with Shredded duck and vegetables.

Braised Noodle with Duck Meat (RM18.00)

Peking duck is generally served in two different styles, the first is the crispy duck we had earlier and the second where the duck meat is braised with noodles. 



Their la mein reminds me of 'Pan Mee', it's soft but chewy - stir-fry with light soy sauce until fragrant -
The plus point goes to the 'charred flavor' in the la mein! Not bad.


Coconut Pudding (RM8.00)

 Wuah! I love this! 
It is the signature dessert of the Imbi Palace Group and it’s their best kept secret recipe. 


The pudding was not too sweet at all, and it has the coconut juice flavor in it, then I 'slurp' it down my throat,
then the cooling sensation took over me, and I was uh.. on cloud nine.


Snow Skin Mooncake (RM15.80)


Mooncake was served last to put a full stop to the 9 course dinner.

Chef Nam-gor, Dim Sum Kitchen demonstrates hand-making snow skin mooncake with its content; white lotus seed paste from Hong Kong. Chef Nam-gor is from Singapore and currently the main chef in Imbi Palace Group Dim Sum department.
