Shamrock Seafood Restaurant
G/F., 223 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon
My mom’s friend recommended this restaurant for its morning dim sum as it’s very value for money. Most of the dim sum are sold at half price if you order before 11am!
The Ma Er Bao (HKD$11.80+/SGD$2.10+) is very nice! It’s filled with crushed peanuts and salty egg yolk so this is both sweet and savory.
My favourite is the Ma La Gao (HKD$11.80+/SGD$2.10+). It’s very soft and not too sweet.
I was a little disappointed by the Fried Fish Cakes (HKD$15.80+/SGD$2.80+) because the Chinese description made it sound so nice. But they are just normal fish cakes.
The Fried Yam Cake (HKD$8.80+/SGD$1.60+) is good and fragrant.
My parents ordered the Pearl Chicken (HKD$17.80+/SGD$3.20+).
It’s somewhat similar to the Lo Mai Kai we have in Singapore. I was not interested in this because it's rice.
The Spinach Dumplings (HKD$11.80+/SGD$2.10+) is quite nice. There’s a lot of spinach and prawns in it but the skin is a little thick.
For desserts, we have the Coconut Cakes (HKD$8.80+/SGD$1.60+). These are like jelly and not too sweet.
The Green Bean Soup (HKD$11.80+/SGD$2.10+) has seaweed in it. Again, I was misled by the Chinese description as I thought it’s green bean paste instead of soup.
Business appears to be quite good as there were still many people there when we left at almost noon.This restaurant is really cheap and good! The total bill is only (HKD$154/SGD$28) even though we ate so much. The restaurant is located at the ground floor of the Shamrock Hotel so it’s really easy to find.
