馬拉糕還是如此美味 Featured Review

以前我由中環或上環前往「歌賦街」,嘗試尋找「歌賦街」食店的時候,途中經過「威靈頓街」的時候,都會給我無意中發現,有一間裝修風格偏向古式古香的茶樓。後來我在新聞裡面,知道了它其實是,香港其中一間有名的中式茶樓,店名叫做「蓮香樓」。相對於現在大部分以寫點餐紙,去選擇點心的中式酒樓,我終於知道為什麼「蓮香樓」到現在仍大受食客歡迎的原因。另一方面,有很多食客慕名幫襯「蓮香樓」,因為「蓮香樓」還有幾款舊式中式點心,讓中外食客都為之趨之若鶩,包括今次光顧「蓮香樓」的我在內。由於我今日一個人上門光顧「蓮香樓」,平時由屋企其他人在中式茶樓負責的工作,今日都變成了由我負責,包括自行用滾水洗茶杯,和洗飯碗的工作。「蓮香樓」一早已經在茶樓檯面,擺放了給食客洗食具的洗滌器皿,而且洗滌器皿體積也很大,要自己一個人準備餐具本來不成問題。反而叫點心的工作,才是我在「蓮香樓」遇上最大的問題。平時拿着點心紙,我一早知道什麼點心什麼價錢,因應自己預算和本錢來揀選點心,都不算是問題,反而等待「點心車」經過才揀選點心,很容易令自己大失預算。把自己的茶杯和餐碗洗滌完成過後,是時候要揀選給自己飲的茶葉。我光顧「蓮香樓」的時候,正處於下午的時候,我肯定飲不了紅茶,所以只能選擇飲綠茶,我最後選擇了綠茶茶葉「壽眉」。我之所以選擇「壽眉」茶葉,純粹因為平時跟阿媽飲茶的時候,阿媽經常會選擇飲「壽眉」茶葉,我跟隨阿媽飲中茶,時間耐了就開始習慣了飲「壽眉」,而不再飲用可能有提神作用的紅茶,轉飲綠茶茶葉。飲了第一口的綠茶「壽眉」,之後我開始留意「蓮香樓」場內「點心車」的行踪,「點心車」出現的時間,比我預期來得較遲。不過,既然我是在下午茶時間飲茶,只是「點心車」按時現身就算。果然不出我所料,「蓮香樓」載着大型蒸籠的「點心車」終於出現在我的面前。當時我的直覺告訴我,這個大型蒸籠點心車擺放着的點心,應該會是我最期待和最想食的點心「古法馬拉糕」。我叫停了「點心車」,詢問推「點心車」的嬸嬸,有沒有「馬拉糕」可以選擇。結果「點心車」嬸嬸的反應沒有令我失望,「古法馬拉糕」如期現身,送到我的面前。相對於上次,我在何文田愛民邨街市的中式點心店「珊X點心居」,也曾經購買過點心「馬拉糕」來享用。比較兩者的「馬拉糕」價錢,「蓮香樓」的價錢比起「珊X點心居」都昂貴得多。「珊X點心居」的馬拉糕價錢相對較便宜,而且「珊X點心居」馬拉糕外型非正宗舊式的方形,而是比較流線型的橢圓形。「蓮香樓」馬拉糕是正宗切出來的方形,口感也較「珊X點心居」來得正宗。而且,「蓮香樓」的古法馬拉糕,馬拉糕除了口感十分鬆軟之外,馬拉糕還傳來了一陣陣,疑似來自蒸籠的香味。我如果不是因為,現在雙手指甲不能見人的話,我大可以,一邊用手拿着「古法馬拉糕」,另一邊用手拿着手機為「古法馬拉糕」拍下珍貴圖片留念。跟着我跟着再在「點心車」裡面,揀選了傳統茶樓必備的點心「鮮竹牛肉球」。我之前曾經被阿媽落過禁令,明令禁止食牛肉,我只能「陽奉陰違」,暗中享用牛肉美食。今次我在「蓮香樓」也不例外,在靜悄悄情況之下,一個人慢慢享用中式茶樓傳統「鮮竹牛肉球」的味道。「鮮竹牛肉球」口感都簡相當有彈性,牛肉球黏附着的鮮腐竹,再沾滿帶有新鮮酸味的「喼汁」,令到「鮮竹牛肉球」口感除了有彈性之外,還有陣陣開胃的「喼汁」酸味。我拿着筷子直接戮穿「鮮竹牛肉球」,無疑我用筷子直接戳穿牛肉球,這動作是會比較礙眼一點,但是我又要用手拿着手機,為「鮮竹牛肉球」拍照,我不想有任何意外發生,不想浪費任何食品,逼於無奈只能出此下策。吃完具有喼汁鮮酸味道的「鮮竹牛肉球」之後,我亦是時候揀選最後一款「蓮香樓」點心美食了。雖然我是在下午茶時段光顧「蓮香樓」,但是我始終不是太想食豬肉類點心,例如「排骨」或者「叉燒包」。加上我好像冥冥中被命運安排了,所以我最後在「點心車」中,揀選了「綿花雞」。「蓮香樓」最後讓我感到放心,原因就是「蓮香樓」的廚房製造點心「綿花雞」時,沒有將價就價,以較「下欄」質素的雞中翼,去作為「綿花雞」食材材料。我吃到的「蓮香樓」點心「綿花雞」,除了雞件沒有骨頭之外,還附帶有鮮冬菇和魚肚作材料。無骨的雞件配上同樣無骨的冬菇和魚肚,才是真真正正原裝的點心「綿花雞」吧。我在「蓮香樓」,吃到啖無骨的「綿花雞」,雖然雞件始終還有會滲出雞油,但是雞油對我的影響不算很大,能夠吃口感柔軟,而且啖啖肉無骨的「綿花雞」,我已經感到心滿意足了。最後我飲完最後一啖「壽眉」茶後,拿着點心紙到收銀櫃檯埋單付款,最後價錢只是收港幣九十元,茶錢一位只是收港幣十三元而已,整體而言,「蓮香樓」的價錢不算十分昂貴,我吃完還覺得便宜。雖然今次我是一個人飲中茶,但是都不是第一次這樣做,我之前已經試過「一個人飲茶」,而且感覺效果還不錯,「蓮香樓」下次還可以再光顧幫襯呢! continue reading

The right timing Featured Review

It is all about the right timing for dimsum.  I went around 3pm which is quite late but I purposely went at that time because it was less busy and definitely quieter.They serve traditional dimsums so there were only a few dishes I liked.When I sat down, the guy poured the tea in the washing bowl, so I thought to myself GREAT, he was going to wash it but it turns out he just poured it in there for me!~~I had the steamed layered bun with coconut, custard egg yolk which was surprisingly good because it was not too sweet and the dessicated coconut was actually fragrant and tasty.It brought back memories of these cocktail buns I had as a kid from Chinatown.Next was this rare item "cha gwore" which is like a steamed mochi filled with peanuts, sesame and coconut, again it was fragrant and not too sweet.It tasted like those grandma cha gwores!A must grab if you see them because they are not often there according to the dimsum chef.The flavouring of the roast pork was the best I had because you can taste lots of different flavours going on from the roasting to grilling of the charsiu, yet it was not too sweet but the only let down was the texture because it was too dry and hard.The treasures wrapped in beancurd was not my cup of tea, there was a slice of pork chop, and a piece of sharp chicken bone which was part of a chicken leg I guess.Hoping to return for the hargaus and sharks fin dumpling but the noise and having to be aggressive and shouting out puts me off.Overall,  it is a good experience and highly recommended to tourists because it is located in Central which is relatively more civilized than Kowloon.I have yet to try The Chairman and the other expensive tea place down the other side of the road. continue reading

懷舊茶樓 Featured Review

這天大約11點左右來到中環的蓮香樓,從遠遠就已經看到了蓮香樓的招牌。沿著樓梯上到二樓就是蓮香樓了,一上到去就看見滿滿的人在等位。等了十幾分鐘終於有位子了😭坐下來不久就拉著點心紙跑了出去點心車去叫食物,點心車基本上都是一動也不動,因為圍著車子的人實在是太多了!好不容易從點心車拿到食物,當然要好好享受啦~我們先點了馬拉糕,不知道我們這個馬拉糕為什麼特別的小。不過好在口感鬆軟,味道稍淡。再之後就是奶黃包,內裡是最基本的奶黃,而非現在外頭一般吃的流心奶黃。不過奶黃味不太特出,而且包子可能在車子上放久了有點冷。雞扎大概是這一餐最滿意的食物,裡頭的雞都非常入味,啖啖都係汁,料又足又靚!大家都在搶食物哈哈雖然這麼的食物不算很好味,但來得的多數都是上了年紀的一輩。正值新年,這些老顧客都不停的給伙記利是,伙記口袋裡都快要放不下利是了!除了老顧客,遊客的人數也很多,說真的這麼真的很適合外國人來體現香港的飲茶文化! continue reading

蓮香團年夜 Featured Review

家人一向講求實際,不講排場不吃裝修,團年飯例必選擇口碑較好的大眾化平民格局飯店。今年提早團年,這次就來老字號的蓮香樓。名氣的緣故可能會令人誤會價錢自然會高人一等,卻又不然。8餸1湯加招牌甜品不用加一只需千多元。當然沒有鮑參翅肚,大家都願意響應保育少吃魚翅,以老火例湯花生煲雞腳取代。都是那句:最緊要實際,湯靚料足味濃。霸王鴨是鎮店必吃招牌菜,起了骨的鴨身釀入大量蓮子及薏米,炆過後餡料變得充滿粉質,味道像栗子炆鴨。琵琶豆腐粒粒飽滿,炸得金黃但內裏保持軟滑。另一招牌菜西檸雞略嫌不夠入味,雞肉不算豐盈,檸汁不夠濃稠。粟米斑塊反而有驚喜,魚肉爽厚,蛋汁美味。全晚最讚菜式是西蘭花炒帶子,帶子尤其彈牙鮮味,大愛。家人想試不同做法的鯪魚肉,故此經店員提示後仍堅持要兩碟相似菜式。個人較喜歡後者,釀鯪魚肉,連魚皮吃口感爽脆,手功亦乾淨俐落,難度足10分滿分。來碟瑤柱扒荳苗,有點去飲宴的排場,自己在家很難做到這種味道。最後試招牌甜品焗流心西米布甸,儼如中式心太軟。看那緩緩流出的蓮子蓉,味道像極合桃糊。老字號,果然是好選擇。記住:團年飯不用吃翅。 continue reading

這間舊式茶樓好有名,一直想黎而終於去到了,雖然係夜晚黎,感受唔到早上仲有手推點心車既氣氛但這兒的小菜很出色,兩個人只係哎咗兩個小菜,兩碗白飯,已經夠飽個西檸雞啲檸檬好香,好以連檸檬皮都食埋,個雞炸得又唔鞋個椒鹽炸鱔團更加抵讚,外皮香口,裏面既鱔肉鮮嫩,淨係哎咗兩個餸都知佢啲師傅有料,鑊氣夠👍🏻下一次一定要係早上再去,想睇下佢早上有點心車阿嬸推車既氣氛,懷念一下細路果陣上茶樓既感覺,人老咗嘛,都係想懷舊 continue reading
