[Hong Kong 2009 CNY] Wu Kong Shanghai Restaurant

Day 3

Wu Kong Shanghai Restaurant
27-33 Nathan Rd (basement)
Tsim Sa Tsui
(MRT stop: Tsim Sa Tsui)

Wu Kong HK
Its actually located on Peking Rd just off Nathan Rd. You will see it immediately (on yourright) as you exit the MRT.

Sweet&Sour fish@Wu Kong HK
Sweet and sour fish 松子桂花魚

Fish was cooked to perfection and tasted above average but not fantastic (you know like fireworks in the head). 好吃但不夠細緻且刀功不怎麼樣.

Fried rice@Wu Kong HK
Egg white and dried scallop fried rice

Well executed fried rice with subtle seasoning and full of wok hei (breath of wok). My type of food.

Xiao Long@Wu Kong HK
Xiao Long Bao 小籠飽

Highlight of the dinner. Skin was thin yet resilient and pass the chopstick test. Broth inside was sweet and flavourful and pork mince was beautifully er melts in the mouth while still retaining some bite to it.

I've eaten my fair share of xiao long around the globe including the world famous 'Din Tai Fung' in Taipei. I must say Wu Kong's version is top on my taste list.
