Back at home, I'm usually the one who does the ordering. But since I'm an invited guest for this occasion, I wasn't aware of the dishes being ordered and I kinda like it that way. There is this element of surprise and anticipation, hoping whatever comes next is good and can top what I just had.⁣⁣

So surprise was I, when this Braised Shark's Fin in Superior Soup (3 Taels) appeared before my eyes. The broth's texture was smooth and luxurious, evident of the long brewing hours. It also lacks the starchiness that we usually see in regular shark's fin soup, which makes me wonder, if this is how shark fin soup really tastes like? They say you get what you pay for, but I'm still really caught by surprise at the cost of this delicacy. Probably the last time I'm going to have shark fin.
