we were late setting out for lama island 南丫岛 on 3.6.2015. we arrived at the central pier no 4 at just past 11am. the next ferry to lama island was at 12pm. so we walked over to pier no. 5 & managed to get on the ferry to cheung chau island 长州岛 instead. i forgot to check though for fast ferry so we got onto the slow ferry (1hr) journey to cheung chai, perhaps no difference anyway. we arrived at cheung chai 12.15pm. the morning porridge shop at the market which we intended to have was already closed.

HK$198 4-course set

and had a look at the 4-course HK$198 promotion menu. it looked ok. i asked the grumpy fella if there were any other charges. he told me HK$25 all in for tea etc.

we decided to sit down & try our luck (maybe have our throat slashed…haha!)

i saw cheese lobster on the menu, thinking it was cheese gratin. it seemed pointless when i tried to ask him for other preparation, so i told him to add less cheese. anyway it turned out to be a cheese onion sauce, and it was actually quite tasty. i added quite a bit to my rice too. haha! 🙂

lobster was small, like 300g? but it was ok. very low price leh…let the shop earn some money. 🙂

the pan fried cod didn’t look great.

but taste was good. not that i think they cooked particularly well. just that it was a very good fish, and OMT (oh my 天) they did not destroy it! good, good. 🙂 it was tender & oily flaky like cod should be, of course not talking about teriyaki cod at mikuni. my own teriyaki cod etc also better, but this will do. 🙂

steamed scallps with garlic & tanhoon

we had 4 steamed scallops with garlic & tanhoon. this the same preparation as the razor clams at keung kee chicken porridge 强记鸡州。 their menu & signboard showed HK$35 for 1 for this dish alone was HK$140! (later i saw tons of bad comments on openrice & even a seaking Facebook site).

similar to keung kee, somehow they slightly over steamed the scallops. but actually it was pretty ok dish. no complaints at the price.

lettuce pretty ok too. overall lunch cost HK$223. to me it was a very good value set. & the food was above average really, not cheap & bad. afterwards i saw loads of very bad reviews on both openrice & strangely a seaking Facebook site (probably not by seaking). in fact i think it was like 100% poor comments & i can totally understand why. service, cut-throat etc.

for us on the day though with this set, it was pretty good, and i would think much better value vs the HK$198 at keung kee the night before.
