Guam Diner Bytes: Majesty Chinese Restaurant
I had an opportunity to revisit Saipan’s Majesty Chinese Restaurant earlier this month with three of my travelling colleagues (Aileen, Mark and Jo-Anne). It was Aileen’s first time and I had been with Mark & Jo-Anne last September when I did my first review of this Cantonese landmark.
We arrived just after 9 p.m. (they close at 9:30) so we ordered the roast duck (half for $23.00) barbecue pork ($12), corn & crab soup ($14), baby bokchoy with garlic ($10), fried shrimp ($20), certified Angus beef on a sizzling platter ($18), and Yangchow fried rice ($10).
Well we started out with that delicious soup, followed by the savory charsiu pork. While the baby bok choy exploded with fresh flavors, we were all overwhelmed by what had to be one of the juiciest, tastiest roast ducks I’ve ever eaten! It really was amazingly delicious!
The fried jumbo prawns were also juicy and well seasoned. The shell was so crisp you could eat the entire prawn! Then while we were eating different dishes (the beef was also tasty), the manager stunned us by bringing out this large platter with what had to be a nearly 3-pound spiny lobster that had been steamed, broken up and smothered in a light cheese and garlic sauce.
It was still alive maybe 10 minutes before we got it! It was just superbly fresh and juicy and meaty...we were in lobster heaven! The manager told us his owner said that if I ever came back to make me something special. They had many visitors come to Majesty based on my September 2013 review! Amazing grace!
