Good value, filling set meal.
Snake and chicken broth was quite good.
High quality crispy liver sausauges;
This time it's about the really famous Se Wong Yi (literally: Snake King Two) located at Causeway Bay.
It's definitely not number two but number one when it comes to location and the size of their sign board! You can't miss it. Just 2-3 minutes away from CWB MTR station exit B.
I already decided that I wanted the standard lunch set when looking at the menu placed outside ( in Chinese only, I believe).
The place was a bit crowded. It had about 5-6 round tables for four and numerous tables for two. About 40 persons in total (?) Be prepared to sit pretty close to your neighbors. Not as luxurious as Ser Wong Fun but decent. Much better than Se Wong Sun. A lot brighter and cleaner with air conditioning.
I ordered the standard lunch set (HK$90), which consisted of a bowl of snake soup, rice with pork liver sausage and a plate of lettuce with oyster sauce.
It came after a short wait.
First, the snake soup:
Still, believe it or not, almost double the amount of snake than Ser Wong Fun at central!
The taste was good with crysamtimim leaves and lemon grass.
Definitely worth a try.
Rice: The rice was nicely steamed rice, soft, flavourful and aromatic. The black pork liver sausages might look intimidating but was quite good. It had a good balance between fat, liver and meat. Might be considered an acquired taste though.
Some soy sauce was also sprinkled on top of the steamed rice. It's possibly special made as I seemed to detect a hint of Chinese herbs in it.
Lettuce with oyster sauce: Pretty crisp. No complaints.
Service: Normal. Not rude. Efficient. That's sufficient in such a local eatery.
- Convenient location, high turnover rate.
- Snake soup had decent amount of snake meat in it.
- Clean and air conditioned. Service was not bad.
All in all, great for a decent filling snake meal.
