At a typical Chinese restaurant, you’re sure to find your favorite shrimp dishes like salt and pepper shrimp, and, of course, honey walnut shrimp. However, when it comes to the North Shore variety that’s cooked in butter and garlic, you wouldn’t think to look for it at your local chop suey. But at Royal Palace Restaurant, located in Stadium Mall, the eatery is determined to give customers a varied eating experience, offering its delectable Shrimp with Butter Sauce.

Aside from Royal Palace’s a la carte options, opt for the popular and affordable lunch ($12.95 per person) and dinner ($13.95 per person) buffets. Select from nearly 50 items daily, including cold ginger chicken, fried rice, chow fun, fish fillet, sweet-sour pork and more. For dessert, Royal Palace serves up ice cream, almond floats, Jell-O and jin dui.

Also take advantage of the restaurant’s special takeout deal for lunch and dinner, which includes a two-choice ($6.95 lunch, $7.95 dinner) option that allows you to select any two items from the buffet, as well as a three-choice ($8.75 lunch, $9.75) option.

And with Chinese New Year (Feb. 16) around the corner, come celebrate the Year of the Dog at Royal Palace, with a traditional lion dance and the season’s special Jai ($9.95).

There’s more:

Although not available on the lunch or dinner buffets, this dish can be ordered a la carte as a main entrAi??e, side dish or appetizer to share with the entire table — although you may not want to share after one bite of this addictive dish.

Savor shrimp:

Plump shrimp are stir-fried with a homemade butter and garlic sauce.

Getting saucy:

Sliced round onion also makes it into the wok for added flavor.
