Dog day afternoon

Pin It

We're in Sai Kung today to visit a shelter for rescue dogs, and for one reason or another didn't have time to grab lunch at a more reasonable hour.  I was starving by the time we were free to eat around 4 p.m., and I was determined to make up for it by getting a decent meal.  Since we're in an area famous for their seafood, I figured we should make our way to Loaf On (六福菜館). We were the only table in the restaurant, and the staff had to turn the lights back on for us. As we were only two, we couldn't order a lot of dishes.

Baked abalone with chili and garlic (椒鹽焗鮑魚) - difficult to come here and not order this.  These were pretty decent in size. although not as thick as the ones we had last time.  Still very tasty.

Saute clam and bean vermicelli with oil in salty water (油鹽水粉絲浸蜆) - lots of manila clams, and the glass vermicelli was pretty nice in the broth.

Traditional steamed rice with seafood (西貢艇仔蒸飯) - we had this on our last visit, and it was really, really good.  Still love the dried shrimp, cuttlefish, preserved sausage, and salted whitebait which has that fermented flavor.

Fried kale with vinegar (醋炒芥蘭) - nice and fresh.  Love it with a bit of vinegar.

It was almost 5 p.m. when we finished lunch, and we needed to stroll around the area a little as we were so stuffed.  We really should come back here more often...
