The First Meal in Food Haven

Since it was already past lunch time after we've checked in to Novotel Century Hong Kong Hotel, we started pursuing on our gastronomic journey. First on the list is the place prominent for the barbecue meat, from barbecue pork (叉烧), roasted pork (烧肉), roasted goose (烧鹅), etc. This place is Keung Kee Restaurant (强记饭店) at 9-17 Tin Lok Lane, Wan Chai. It is within walking distance from both Wan Chai MTR and Causeway Bay MTR stations. The shop is open from 7 a.m. to midnight.














First on our priority list was the barbecue pork (叉烧) which is barbecued twice with a glaze coating of honey, together with the roasted pork (烧肉) with crispy skin (HKD65). The barbecue pork was tender on the inside and sweet and crunchy on the outside due to the glazing. The skin on the roasted pork was crispy with more lean meat than fat. Both went well with the plum sauce bundled with the order. This dish came with some peanuts which were good for munching as well.






One thing that should not be missed in Hong Kong, particularly at Keung Kee, is the roasted goose (烧鹅). We ordered a drumstick (HKD45) and it tasted better than any roasted duck in Kuching! The skin was roasted to perfection of golden brown with crispy texture. The meat was juicy and tender. It went well with the plum sauce or the sweet sauce bundled.




A meal with all meat was too cinful, so we tried to swallow some vegetable (油菜). Probably I was exaggerating. The plate of boiled vegetable in oyster sauce (HKD8) was actually very crunchy and the juice was well kept in the vegetable.




A bowl of good soup could quench all the tiredness away and wash down the oil, so I ordered a bowl of double-boiled chicken in coconut, white fungus and red dates (椰子雪耳红枣炖鸡). The soup is very thick sweet and I like the coconut flavour. I didn't know coconut could go so well with the other ingredients before this. Besides, I like hard coconut fresh too which was good for my mouth exercise. Each bowl costs HKD38. The bowl served to me had all the promised ingredients.
