Went on a Friday evening at 8pm, but still had to wait around half hour for a table. The reason was that I insisted on being seated on the 1st floor, when there were seats on the 3rd floor. It is a small place, maybe less than 30 tables on the 1st floor. The restaurant has a 3rd floor as well, but my friends warned me that the food quality on the 3rd floor is not comparable to the 1st floor. I admit that I have no wish to spend money to verify that piece of advice.
Ordered the following:
1. Charsiew and roasted meat platter -- 4.5 out of 5 stars. I like the roasted meat better. Skin was crispy, and not that much fats. The charsiew was juicy because it had more fats. What made the dish more tasty was that the meat was heated up, unlike the meat that you buy in the street markets.
2. Claypot vegetables (sang choi) with prawn paste -- 4 out of 5 stars. I ordered this dish because I looked around the floor and see that this is one of the more common dishes. The smell of prawn paste was very strong. The cooking is quite unique because all the kitchen had to do was to superheat the claypot for a while, and thereafter the uncooked vegetables and prawn paste is poured into the claypot to be cooked at your table.
3. Salted egg yolk prawns -- 4 out of 5 stars. Each prawn costs HKD 48. They were quite big. Can't really go wrong with this dish. I must say that if you go to Singapore, the variation of this dish is the Salted egg yolk crab, which I would give 5 out of 5 stars, a must try if you go to any seafood restaurant in Singapore.
4. Carrot and radish and corn soup -- 3.5 out of 5 stars. One bowl of soup per person. Soup was quite sweet and tasty. I tried the same soup at Tung Po at Java Municipality cooked food centre (North Point). The Tung Po one was much better, and had a lot lot more soup.
Total spending for 3 persons and 4 dishes, around HKD 700.
