For some bizarre reason, the mother was in an exceptionally good mood and decided to take me to have a rather extravagant lunch. Ah Yat Abalone Restaurant had been long standing and also welll raved by many people for their abalone dishes as well as their assorted dim sum. To my surprise, there were quite a number of tables already filled when we arrived early on Saturday.

To my surprise, there were quite a number of tables already filled when we arrived early on Saturday. I guess many families choose today to enjoy a good meal together and despite the many people (even children) the place was not crazily packed or noisy which I preferred.
Since we ordered the set meal fit for 2-3 people, it already has the standard menu which the chefs have put together for us. Easier for the diners since we do not know what to order and would rather not waste the waiter's time asking several questions over and over again. The first dish is the deep fried seafood wrap. This I quite liked because it was fried to perfection and not at all oily even though it is deep fried. Plus the filling tasted amazing! The set also came with stewed Abalone with Japanese Mushroom and Vegetable. When I saw the huge piece of abalone, my heart almost died because I honestly could not comprehend how much this dish would have costed on it's own. Although it was scarce if you just ordered this without anything else, I think it is just right shared between two people when you have a set meal.
The seafood was nicely stewed, tender but also had a nice bite to it. I could not get enough of the sauce and would have happily mopped it all up if we were not in a rather high-class restaurant. Our set meal also comes with a plate of abalone fried rice. I was already quite full by the time this arrived and slightly put off by the yellow colour. Though, the scent of it was so tempting that I couldn't not eat it so I took a bite and... IT WAS SOOOO GOOD!
There was a very strong flavour of the seafood and also a good 'wok-hei' scent. I couldn't stop eating until I was really filled to the brim.
Although my mom & I really enjoyed our meal at Ah Yat Abalone Restaurant, we definitely would not be back here anytime soon as the prices are a little too high for an everyday meal. Though for special occasions, it's worth dining here.
