Posted by

By estimate, there are more than 12000 plus food establishments operating in Hong Kong.

We are enlisting some of the interesting restaurants we have visited or taken note in our bucket list. Please let us know if some of your favorites are not yet here. We will definitely update this from time to time as we try more of your suggestions.

1.) Sha Tin 18

Location: 18 Chak Cheung Street, Sha Tin, New Territories, Hong Kong

Sha Tin 18 is one of the award-winning restaurants of Hyatt Regency Hong Kong Shatin offering authentic Dongguan and northern Chinese cuisine in a lively show kitchen environment. We have paid a visit during lunch where we availed their dim sum and set lunch. Some of our dimsum favorites are the steamed shrimp bamboo shoot dumpling, steamed shrimp pork crab roe dumpling, turnip puff pastry red cherry shrimp, and crispy fried lemongrass spring roll. For the signature dishes, we enjoyed the Peking duck that was skillfully sliced in front of us and divided into 3 dishes: crispy duck skin, duck breast meat and duck leg meat. We also love the citric flavours of their other signature dish- Wok-baked cod fish with homemade Chinese wampi paste. After that, a meal would not be complete without tasting their creative desserts that combine Western culinary style with Chinese ingredients such as the baked black sesame dumpling pie, pineapple roselle sherbet ice cream and chinese wine chocolate homemade ice cream.
