Lucky Palace, Seremban

Seremban isn’t a place I’m well-versed with as it has always been a “pit-stop” option when I’m enroute KL from Melaka. Jien and I stopped to check out Lucky Palace a couple of weeks back because we were looking for a suitable dinner venue to recommend to my friend who’s getting hitched in 2018.

Spacious interior — am not fond of the blue hued lights though.

There are two Lucky Palace branches – one in Seremban and the other in Ayer Keroh. We tried the one in Seremban and found the food reasonably priced and decent in taste. The restaurant seems to be a popular option for dinner as the crowd kicks in from 7.30pm onwards; most of them would bring a tipple of their choice.

Lucky Crispy Roasted Duck

P1370888

That’s what I like about Chinese restaurants – free corkage, no questions asked. Jien and I opted for the Lucky Crispy Roasted Duck (RM26.68 – half, RM50.30 – whole) which we found quite affordably priced. Tastewise, I didn’t care much for it as the duck wasn’t as fatty as I like it to be. This made the meat slightly tough to enjoy.

Braised Chicken with Chinese Wine in Claypot

P1370909

The Braised Chicken with Chinese Wine in Claypot (RM21.20 – small, RM31.80 – medium, RM42.40 – large) was good stuff. This was my favourite dish at Lucky Palace and one I would order again when I’m there. You get tender pieces of chicken in thick, caramelised gravy and a good kick from the ginger slices. This tasted especially good with the Martell VSOP, which further accentuates the herbal notes of the gravy.

Chinese Spinach in Superior Soup

Chinese Spinach in Superior Soup (RM12.72 – small, RM19.08 – medium, RM26.50 – large) is a simple dish but well-prepared at Lucky Palace. I liked that they were generous with the century egg slices as it gave the soup more depth in flavour. That said, the best version of this soup is still the one from Hup Kee in Jalan Ipoh.

Claypot Eggplant in Spicy Garlic Sauce

P1370863

Jien and I both enjoyed the Claypot Eggplant in Spicy Garlic Sauce (RM12.72 – small, RM19.08 – medium, RM26.50 – large) as it’s packed with flavour and boasted a delicious aroma from the char of the garlic. If you like eggplant, you’ll love this.

Fried Hong Kong Ee-Fu Noodles with Crab Meat

Less stellar was the Fried Hong Kong Ee-Fu Noodles with Crab Meat (RM21.20 – small, RM42.40 – medium, RM63.60 – large). The noodles tasted a bit one-dimensional to me and I wasn’t getting much flavour from the crab. I also found the noodles a tad overdone so it didn’t have the springy texture which is an important element for me.

With all that said, I still find the food at Lucky Palace quite decent and portions are commendable. Am already planning another return trip here with the in-laws during Chinese New Year when they do their rounds of visiting in the area and Melaka.
