after a good day’s walk at cheung chau island + free star ferry ride, and (before that) a very nice stroll at the peak circle walk, we were ready to settle down to a sumptuous dinner on 11.1.2016. ^^
it was not to be such a simple task though.
since we were already at tsimshatsui, we decided to go to tao heung at tsimshatsui rather than take mtr to mongkok.
all our i-sim free 160Mb data were used up & not topped up yet so. we got tao heung google-mapped when i got into isquare wifi network & was happily reaching the carnavon plaza in good time to enjoy the before 9pm promotion. 🙂
but we did not expect that tao heung had moved to 3 minden row. & w/o 3G it was quite difficult to locate just by verbal directions. after quite a long search & about to throw up our hands & go back to mongkok, we found tao heung at 3 minden row & sat down to find that our order had passed the 9pm timesheet log-in. 😦
anyhow, the 1/2 roast goose & 1/2 roast BB suckling pig were priced very reasonably here so i ordered both.
BB suckling was small & it was very good. at HK$148, it was even cheaper than the already cheap roast goose.
& really nice too. i loved it, as good as ah yat grandstand & hung kang restaurants in singapore.
there were like 6 different 2-in-1 combo special. one was a dungenese crab combo.
i decided to take the glutinous rice stuffed chicken soup. 🙂
& the soup was wonderful! ^^
very intense & tasty, & the chicken & glutinous rice were very good too & i the soup was so intense & flavourful. fantastic!
it’s a bit like the korean samgyaetang 参鸡汤 but no ginseng i think. tasted a whole lot better also.
the HK$188 2-in-1 combo included a sliced abalone with sweet beans which was good too. a pretty good deal!
the 1/2 roast goose 烧鹅 HK$180 in this restaurant was just HK$180, cheaper than yat lok (HK$250) & cheaper than fu kee (HK$220)!
the roast goose looked great & tasted pretty good too! but it was really NOT as good as flavourful than both yat lok & fu kee. it was pretty good, a dish i would take in this restuarant.
my friends loved the pork ribs mustard leaves soup 芥菜锅. very tasty clear 清 soup.
this a dish i intend to make, together with the samgyaetang 参鸡汤!
the greens was done well here, very nicely garlic fried with wok hae, unlike the “damp squid” tasteless vegetable at tai yun 泰源 last evening!
they placed the wrong dish on our table, a fried rice, maybe yangzhou fried rice. it looked good & we decided to order it as well. nice!
& the lads decided we should round off dinner with 2bottles of blue girl “lam mui” beer.
i took a small sip. it was pretty flavourful, not bad la..
dinner was HK$931 all in for 6pax = S$29pax, not toforget we had roast goose & roast suckling pig, a very good dinner at a super good price!
& the service in this new restaurant with great ambience was good too!
