I'm back in Hong Kong on a business trip, and I answered the call from a friend for a food crawl. Felix from QLI is finishing up his stay in town, and this was organized to take him to some of the classic dishes in Hong Kong. There would be four stops across Hong Kong and Kowloon, where we sample the signature dishes at each restaurant before moving on to the next.
The first stop was Luk Yu Tea House (陸羽茶室). I've never been a fan of this place, especially since my last meal here ended with a disgrace of a fried rice, and service that told me the staff didn't want us there. But this wasn't my gig and we were here just to have a couple of dishes.
We moved on to our second stop - Manor Seafood Restaurant (富瑤酒家) - for the next couple of dishes.
We moved on to Hing Kee Typhoon Shelter Crab (興記避風塘炒蟹), where we were joined by Mrs. Dyson. Unfortunately I started to feel ill at this point. I've been out of Hong Kong for almost a month, and I think I'm just no longer used to having aircon blasting everywhere. I had showered and changed into a short-sleeve T-shirt with material which breathes, and apparently it was letting a little too much cold air in... Since I had another full day of client meetings the next day, I decided that it would be best to bail and get some sleep. I left the others to enjoy more crab and roast suckling pig... Another time, amigos!
