Delicious Dai Pai Dongs

Hong Kong

What I like in Hong Kong is eating in dai pai dongs—nothing fancy, the chairs are plastic, the cutlery is almost plastic, hygiene is questionable, but when you eat there’s a wow factor. I love this contrast. It’s cheap, but out of this world! To be honest, the French, we don’t have this concept too much. Normally, we spend a lot of money on food, but it’s very refreshing to try something yummy yet affordable.

Yat Lok Restaurant

一樂燒鵝

Hong Kong, China, People's Republic • Recommendation • 7 months ago

This roast goose is so nice. The funny joke is that everyone wants the drumstick, but you only get two drumsticks when you buy a goose. They handle the demand for drumstick really well. The secret is if you order a half goose, they always give you an extra drumstick. If you know the lady well, you can order the extra drumstick. That’s why I buy a half goose, then I get the extra drumstick on top. I like it on rice, my girlfriend Canny likes it with noodles and the broth. I like it with the rice because you have this sauce, marinated with the goose flavors. When you put the goose with the sweet sauce, all together I really like the combination. I think they’re doing very well. I love the lady at the cashier. I park across the restaurant all the time, and I talk to her sometimes. She’s grumpy, but I get her. If I were in her position, I’d be the same! Dealing with people every day, they all want to push you, “give me a table, give me a table”... But she’s very funny.

Tung Po Kitchen

東寶小館

Hong Kong, China, People's Republic • Recommendation • 7 months ago

They have a few plates I like. To be honest, I don’t remember that much. I know they have one with the millennium eggs on top of something. The pigeon is quite nice. They have these crispy noodles that they put eggs on top of. They have a few hot and spicy dishes, which are quite good too. I like it because the guy is a bit crazy, putting on weird music. The place is quite huge. The ambiance is quite good, we always have a fun time there.

On Lee Noodle

安利魚蛋粉麵

Hong Kong, China, People's Republic • Recommendation • 7 months ago

Very far away, going to Shau Kei Wan, very cheap noodle place. Everyone in Hong Kong goes there. It’s very Yat Lok seating—plastic chairs, plastic bowls, but very nice noodle place. It’s very nice, quite unique.

Lamma Rainbow (Rainbow Seafood Restaurant)

天虹海鮮酒家

Hong Kong, China, People's Republic • Recommendation • 6 months ago

I like going to Lamma Island. It’s quite nice. When it’s a sunny day, we do the walk for 45 minutes then we go here. It’s quite refreshing. What I like is they’re very consistent. They have this squid, which is always good. The abalone, the funny crayfish with the cheese on top. It’s quite yummy. They have a big variety of food. Of course, I like the garoupa fish but depends on the fishing day. I’m always impressed because they’re getting bigger and bigger. Before, they used to have just one area then you can see that they bought the next-door space, and then the other next-door space. They started to get so big. I’m quite impressed with how many customers they can do. Of course, it’s casual food—it’s dai pa dong-style—but it’s quite nice.

Dragon Inn Seafood Restaurant

容龍海鮮酒家

Hong Kong, China, People's Republic • Recommendation • 6 months ago

My girlfriend likes to take me to Tuen Mun where you pick up all the ingredients in the market, and they cook it for you. And I have to say, they’re quite good. We tried a lot of things, we had 20 dishes. We had the razor clams, abalone, crayfish, scallops... I was quite shocked with the cheesy crayfish/rock lobster. I have to say, it’s not bad. I was surprisingly delighted. I like it. It’s kind of weird turning crayfish, very expensive rock lobster, into junk food. But the cooking is good. It’s well-cooked. It’s nice once you eat it. They really respect the crayfish. The way they cook the fish is very nice.
