R and I were in HK for only one day, and the only thing we absolutely agreed on doing was to eat, even more than shopping. I know my time was limited, so I tried to narrow down to a couple must try places.
I really wanted to try this 1 star Michelin restaurant called Tim Ho Wan, which is apparently cheap and delicious. Unfortunately due to it's popularity, I think there is going to be a huge wait time. Therefore I went for the next one in line: another Michelin star restaurant: T'ang Court in Langham hotel.
The special (268HKD) includes:
- Fruit juice of your choice - mine was guava, it was fresh and tasty
- Desserts: although tiny, but delicate and delicious
- Abalone mushroom: very light tasting again, not really impressive
- BBQ pork was tender and juicy, jelly fish was fresh and springy
- Stew noodle with fish maw was flavourful and al dente.
- fresh lobster, very springy texture
- interesting combination, chewy sea cucumber, with flavourful meat and fresh shrimp
Baked pastry filled with glutinous rice and goose liver terrine pate. (50HKD)
- very flaky and slight sweet warm pastry
- I couldn't really tell the the rice and pate apart, it was just all mixed into one
Service was the best I've had. The waiter was super attentive, I don't think I've filled my tea even once. Every time they walked by even while doing other things, they would look over to make sure our tea was filled and that our plates are clean. I was sure more than happy to pay the mandatory 10% service charge.
