eating in hong kong

21 08 2007

One of the rewards of travelling to Hong Kong is the cuisine.  I simply love it.  It doesn’t matter where you eat, the food is quite good.

We recently went to Hong Kong for some reason and took the opportunity to check out some restaurants recommended by friends.  There were 3 restaurants that were new for us.  Olive, a Mediterranean restaurant on Elgin St., SOHO; Yung Kee Restaurant, very near Lan Kwai Fong on Wellington St. known for its roasted goose and finally Tim’s Kitchen, a restaurant on Jervois St., Sheung Wan.

All three were good … we expected more out of Yung Kee though.  It was probably because we ordered a “set menu” and didn’t concentrate on our favorites.  It was good but a bit overpriced for the food.  Next time, we’ll simply order ala carte and choose our favorites.

Olive was a delightful surprise from the usual Chinese cuisine.  I had a rib-eye and the Wife had a mushroom number.  Of course, Hummus for starters.  I was told that it was one of the best rib-eyes a cousin had eaten.  Unfortunately, I forgot that its a Mediterranean restaurant.  Nevertheless, it was very good … just not what I would have preferred.

The rest of the restaurants were already old favorites: from Delicious Kitchen (Cleaveland St., Causeway Bay), Summer Palace (The Peninsula Hong Kong),

 Guandong Barbeque (Hankow Road, Tsim Sha Tsui), East Ocean (New World Center, Salisbury Road), Sweet Dynasty (Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui), etc.

I’m already looking forward to the next “food” trip …
