Forbidden City [CT]

A little too early for Chinese New Years but a great dinner anyway. One of my very favorite restaurants.

Started with a bottle of René Murré Pinot Blanc [$35] which was crisp and fruity and went well with our seafood inspired meal.

Appetizer of Crispy Baby Calamari with Hunan Chili Aioli [$11] 

Crispy Sea Scallops with Sichuan hot Mala sauce [$19] and two of Melaka Prawns in a spicy sauce with grilled vegetables [$20]. The prawns were delicious and the sauce was spicy as described. The white rice helped smooth out the dish.

Desserts were Pandan Brulée and my Passion Fruit Pineapple Sorbet [$6 each].

Overpriced, management thinks nothing of arguing with staff, in front of other customers. Food somewhat decent at best. Will not return there.
