Seventh Son: Legendary Cantonese fare prepared with modern flair
- One of the most hallowed items on the menu is the suckling pig: the skin is light and wafer crisp without being greasy and the meat is juicy and tender
Backed by the seventh son of Chui Fuk-chuen, the legendary founder of Fook Lam Moon, this establishment raises the bar when it comes to traditional Cantonese cuisine, prepared with modern techniques.
When it opened in 2013, the restaurant was so successful that branches were launched in Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo and Osaka. The decor in the Hong Kong eatery is classic wooden panelling with brass accents, setting the stage for what is on the plates.
The suckling pig here is legendary: the skin is light and wafer crisp without being greasy and the meat is juicy and tender. This dish is a must-try – bring as many people as you can to share.
