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

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

唔經唔覺,原來已經第100篇了!對於我這種吃貨來說,吃是人生一天樂事!所以在這個重要時刻,我希望跟大家分享我最近吃得最開心的一餐星期天的早晨,懶洋洋的,本想到中環吃我最愛的茄牛通,怎料到竟然沒有開門...所以只好懷著失望的心情離開...走著,走著,忽然看到蓮香樓的懷舊招牌!是你了!上次在蓮香樓吃完晚飯後,一直念念不忘,今次終於有機會試一試他們的點心了!裝修及餐具也非常懷舊有特色,充滿著舊香港的味道。還記們小時候上茶樓,必定有老人家玩雀的。時至今日,已經幾乎絕跡了...為了展示這種港式茶樓傳統,老闆也刻意放幾個假鳥籠於茶樓內,別具意義!雖然位處中環,但食物價錢依然非常貼地!頂點亦只是$28,而且不收加一,難怪每朝也會有不少街坊來這裏嘆早茶!現在的新式酒樓,大多改用點心紙下單!在香港用傳統推車仔賣點心的,實在少之又少,而蓮香樓就是其中一間。各位姐姐熟練的,將蒸好的食物放在車仔上,然後再四出巡遊。本來這個方法是想讓食客能安坐於座位中,好好享受他們的靚茶的!但心急的香港人,又怎會按奈得住呢?基本上,受歡迎的食物,如蝦餃、燒賣,一出車,各枱的戰士便會馬上起身,然後衝向點心車!「唔該一籠燒賣!」「唔該一籠蝦餃!」等聲音此起彼落!不消3分鐘,車上滿滿的蒸籠已全部不見了。當然,也有一些銷情不是太理想的,姐姐也會邊推 邊叫賣著,期待食客的光顧。我們的第一個點心是馬拉糕!蓮香樓用了傳統方法製造,先蒸出一大底,然後再進行切割。糕身相當鬆軟,看看中間的小洞數目,大概也能略知一二。而且味道不會太甜,本想打包一個回家吃的,可惜離開之時,已賣光光了!之後是牛肉球,這個味道一般,我略嫌沒有什麼咬口。或許是馬蹄及蔥的份量不夠,讓能再加多一點點,相信味道會更好!接著是豉汁蒸排骨!這個很好吃排骨是半肥瘦,火候剛好,非常入味!入口軟腍不鞋口,若配上白飯,便是一頓美味午餐了!最後吃的是燒賣!這個燒賣真的得來不易是靠男友出出入入5、6次才拿到的!正如之前所說,熱門的點心不消3分鐘便被搶光;而且款式不是固定的,所以每次有新點心出爐,男友均會出去碰碰運氣。終於,幸福之神眷顧我們了!這個燒賣果然沒有令我們失望,豬肉鮮甜蝦爽口,連外層黃色的皮也特別香滑,難怪每次一出爐便搶光!比起新派酒樓,我更愛這種傳統港式茶樓! continue reading

有朋自遠方來,當然要盡地主之誼,帶他們好好認識香港,還有食香港的好東西第一站,我便帶他們到有98年歷史的蓮香樓,去感受一下香港的傳統風味。筷子座及碟上均印有「香港蓮香樓」,非常適合遊客拍照用!一看便知來了香遊玩了!來到蓮香樓,怎能錯過他的招牌八寶鴨!餡料非豐富,有蓮子,鹹蛋黃,銀杏,鴨肉,意米等。此道菜在蓮香樓已有幾十年歷史了,年年復年年不停地做,絕少失準。整個鴨做得非常鬆化入味,連鴨殼上的鴨肉也非常鬆化,難怪每桌也會點這個菜式之後是西檸雞,酸酸甜甜的味道,非常開胃。不過略嫌雞塊炸得不夠香脆,若脆一點味道會更好。之後是蜆介鯪魚球。鯪魚球吃得多,但這麼大個女,還是第一次配蜆介一起吃!鯪魚球外層炸得香脆,內裏爽口彈牙,好吃!咕嚕肉味道中規中矩,不是太特別,但對於遊客來說,七彩顏色配酸酸甜甜的味道也是頗有特色的。最後是雞蛋焗魚腸,在香港已經是買少見少了,魚腸很乾爽,脂肪份量剛剛好,不會感到很油膩,配合薑絲和濃郁的雞蛋一起吃,口感十足!朋友很滿意是晚的菜式,總算有交待了! continue reading
