Food: It's amazing how many a great restaurants in Hong Kong are disguised by unpretentious facades on side streets. Hidden down under a barricade of grocery stalls along Fuk Wa Street, just adjacent to the famous (or infamous?) Golden Computer Shopping Arcade, youâll find Yung Kee, one of those niceties that are inconspicuous with its presence. Try your best to find it if you're in the mood for some good xiu yuk (barbecue pork). For their xiu yuk is exceedingly delicious. The skin crusty; the meat soft and puff. Xiu yuk lovers will fall for their barbecue porkâs tandem, which comes with their specially made wasabi sauce; the wonderful contrast of flavors and texture is second to none in town.
Other novelties include the deep-fried cuttlefish mouth with peppery salt: the puff outside is crispy fried yet the mouth inside is unbelievably toothsome. Coupled with the sour sauce and youâll get yourself one of the best delicacies to bottom-up with. But these are just preludes to the main dishes in the menu, like the roasted pigeons and the clay pots that come with different fillings (like the braised tofu with cuttlefishs pictured to the left). The appetizing aroma of the dishes serving at the table next to you simply makes patience a difficulty.
Specials: Xiu yuk, fried cuttlefish mouths with peppery salt, clay pot of braised tofu with cuttlefishs, fried shrimp cakes, baked fish intestines with egg.
