Imperial Seafood Restaurant Menu
Chinese imperial cuisine is inspired from a number of regional culinary techniques in China, primarily from the Shandong and Jiangsu provinces’ cuisines. The style evolved from the kitchens of different Emperors and Empress Dowagers, and it is comparable to Beijing cuisine, which it significantly inspired. Emperors, their empresses and concubines, and the imperial family were the principal recipients of imperial cuisine. The complex cooking methods and rigorous selection of raw ingredients, which are sometimes highly expensive, uncommon, or difficult to prepare, are hallmarks of Chinese royal cuisine.
