i had been to quite many daipaidong in hong kong, but never quite been to a teochew daipaidong.
i was reading about Kau Kee Chiu Chow Restaurant 九记潮州打冷餐馆 at mongkok. i must admit i was quite thrilled & expectant to try it.
so this evening WM & I, and WT & wife GY, arranged to meet at kau kee at 7pm on 11.92017. ^^
WM & I went a bit early at 6.35pm, first time here. restaurant looked small (but actually they have upstairs) & empty. there were not many diners at the time, wasn’t sure what to expect but crowd started flowing in & place basically packed by 7pm+.
WT & GY were a bit loss so came a while after 7pm. and we saw during the time, a continuous stream of locals filling up the restaurant, that thye came to ask to share our table, but we said we had 2pax more on the way. 🙂
food was super! every dish was great!
we ordered a pig stomach soup, having had a very good one at lunch earlier at tao heung.
it looked not great but in fact it was very tasty, just like what we had at lunch.
i ordered the braised goose 潮州卤鹅. it was tender & tasty…, nice flavourful braise & meat was tender.
the mix braises 卤味拼盘 like 8 different items …taste ok not the best dish for me.
not really spectacular. in fact the single item braise goose was better. but it was interesting to try goose intestines, birth intestines etc.
the oyster porridge was very good too, very tasty & many, many plump large fresh oysters.
it was really good i think. 🙂
such a simple dish & so very tasty…
the 2 fried dishes were excellent-best was the celery with squid & beef….小炒王also good..
the fried beef with sotong & celery was way above expectation…super wok hae so very flavourful!
and the beef, sotong & celery were all excellent.
the 小炒王 also very good, much better than the one at 容记小菜王 we had next day..
we read about the chicken blood 鸡红 but forgot to order.
my friends saw many tables ordering it so added the dish.
it was super tasty, very smooth & very sweet.
the stock was very tasty also..
we had salted fish minced pork often so decided to try the steamed minced pork with squid.
nice too, squid slight tough so this & braised combo were the 2 dishes that are less great for me
it was ok but not that great. salted fish minced pork would have been nicer.
the minced pork was not as smooth & tasty as the one i make.
excellent dinner 4pax HK$599 👍👍👍 this place sure come back
service by the young girl very bad..the other middleage servers ok
