Today I was craving Imitation Sharksfin Soup so I went ahead and tried Fairwood's version. I bought the D lunch set for $23 and it includes the soup, Honey hot dog, a chicken wing and a drink.
Hot Lemon Tea
I know it seems odd to say this but their lemon tea really hit the spot. They gave four lemons in the small cup and it was really great and fragrant. I do feel I'm craving lemons so it probably isn't as outstanding if you're a tea aficionados. But to me, it was great and as it was a takeaway I put it into two cups and added hot water. Really nice, very lemony.
Streetstyle Sharksfin Soup
Looks just like other pictures from fairwood and the taste was definitely not bad but it was a little bland. At first I thought it was disappointing but with each bite it grew on me. I think I will go ahead and add more vinegar for punch and it will taste better. I do miss the texture from the excellent street hawker variety I had in mong kok but of course it's unfair to compare the two.
BBQ chicken wing
Note, I am not a big fan of chicken wings and again I bought the set for the sharksfin soup and was thinking of giving the chicken wing to my dog after washing it in water. First bite in I thought, sorry poochy you're getting something else tonight. Lots of flavor and served on a stick. Done surprisingly well and exceeded my expectations.
Again didn't buy it for this but this one was also surprisingly good to me. Not as surprising as the BBQ wing but good.
This is a great lunch set for all the "wrong" reasons. I had absolutely no desire to eat the BBQ chicken wing nor the honey sausage but they were both bursting with flavor. The sharksfin soup on the other hand, lacked flavor but was not offensive. It just needed something and I will experiment with it. Overall I'm quite surprised with the quality of the lunch set as the lunch that I had before with my folks was quite blah. But due to the good service and the flavors I definitely recommend this place now. It's a fairwood so you shouldn't expect much, but I think the chicken wing won't disappoint
