Shung Hing Chiu Chow Sea Food Restaurant


39 Queen?s Road West, Sheung Wan


2543 7794


The fare


The authentic Chiu Chow food served here attracts the patronage of the rich and powerful, including Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen and Canto-pop star Andy Lau.


The ambience


There are two restaurants with the same name, close to each other. One is the old location, with fluorescent lighting and dai pai dong furniture; the other is a newer space that feels like your usual Chinese restaurant.


The cost


About $150 a person without drinks.


Who to bring


Celebrity chasers, or anyone who appreciates a good soy goose.


Turn-ons


The soy goose here is among the best in town. The best parts are the webs and wings because they absorb most of the flavour, but remember to order them when you book your table because they always run out. The deep-fried oysters are plump, fresh and crisply fried, but we like them better with peppered salt. The caramelised sweet potato, taro and ginko nuts are also a must.


Turn-offs


The braised beef bone marrow with vegetables was disappointing. There was only a morsel of bone marrow, and the choice of vegetables (carrot, broccoli and button mushrooms) made it look like a western dish.


Extra


You might have to wait if you have reserved a table. This place is often overbooked.
