Hang Fa Lao
G/F., 9A Lock Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon
2366 4720


We had a very simple dinner here after the expensive lunch this afternoon.

The Sweet & Sour Meat Chop (HKD$32/SGD$5.80) is highly recommended by many magazines I read before coming. It’s really good and aromatic. The meat is so tender that it just slides off the bone easily.


The Fillet Grouper with Sweet Corn (HKD$31/SGD$5.60) is nice but not outstanding. The fish is lightly pan fried before being drenched in a corn sauce.

Both dishes are served with an 18-Grains Rice which is very healthy.

I don’t like the Fried Rice Roll with XO Sauce (HKD$21/SGD$3.80) as the roll is too thick and not fragrant enough.

The Mango Juice (HKD$23/SGD$4.20) is fresh but a tad too expensive.

Desserts was somewhat a hit and miss affair. We shared the Sea Coconut with White Fungus Soup (HKD$25/SGD$4.55) which is very refreshing and not too sweet.


The Black Sesame Soup (HKD$16/SGD$2.90) is not as nice as I expected though. The soup is a little too thin and not fragrant enough.



On average, the food here is tasty and cheap enough for a filling meal. This café is renowned for their desserts and has the stamp of quality from the Hong Kong Tourism Board.

WELCOME!

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
