Shanghai Lu Yang Cun Restaurant 上海綠楊邨酒家

This week I am going on an exchange programme to Hong Kong for a week. Our first item of the day after arriving in Hong Kong is to lunch.

The restaurant is at world trade centre mall, offering Shanghaiese food. Compare to Singapore, Hong Kong is now having winter season and the weather is very cold. It is cold and having a bit of a rain as we walk from the coach to the mall.

We are led to the smaller dinning hall with a view of the building in the surrounding. The main dinning hall has better view of the sea and CBD area.

The pickles.
Most Chinese restaurants served pickles without been ordered. The lotus root with peas is crunchy. The other is szechuen vegetable.

Appetizer : Deep-fried Bean Curd Sheet filled with Vegetable ( HK$ 80), Jelly Fish in Spring Onion Sauce ( HK$ 75 ), Chicken in Rice Wine Sauce ( HK $ 115 ), Shanghai Ham ( HK $85 ), Pork Spare Ribs in Vinegar Sauce ( HK $88 ).

The jelly fish taste of vinegar, different from what we usually have at the Chinese restaurants in Singapore. The Shanghai Ham has a rather raw meat taste. The Chicken in Rice Wine Sauce is good, as the chicken is tender and full of the wine taste. Unique taste for the pork rib.

Fried Prawns in Chilli Sauce ( HK $168 )
Tastes sweet and spicy, with big, crunchy prawn inside. I am expecting it to taste more spicy. Maybe it has been tuned to suit the local taste bud.

Fried Sliced Pork with Green Pepper ( served with pancake) ( HK$ 98 )

Interesting in DIY to roll up the pancake. The plain pancake balances out the heavy taste of the meat.
