BILL OF THE WEEK

A FEAST fit for kings, this &ndash; in volume as well as in quality. This group of three happy couples hogged the private room at the West End&rsquo;s newly-launched Keelung restaurant last week, celebrating the 30th birthday of one of their number.<br /><br />The group certainly kept the restaurant&rsquo;s waiters on their toes, shuttling back and forth with dishes such as chicken rolls, crispy oysters, garlic shrimp, whole aromatic crispy duck, pork belly, braised lobster, Chilean sea bass, &ldquo;drunken&rdquo; chicken and prawns... (and so the list continues).<br /><br />It&rsquo;s a good job their stomachs were well-lined, mind you: the group managed to swig their way through an impressive seven bottles of Laurent Perrier champagne at &pound;60 a pop, three bottles of Chassagne Montrachet and two of Chateau Cantenac Brown, bringing their bill to a tidy &pound;1,040.50 before any service charge was added on. <br /><br />Not at all shabby for practically a banquet of Taiwanese cuisine, is it?
