Dinner at Old Hong Kong Kitchen
We visited the newly opened Old Hong Kong Kitchen @ KINEX recently for dinner not knowing quite what to expect. We ordered 2 dishes – Deep Fried Egg Plant with Meat Floss ($9.80) and Braised Beancurd with Mushroom & Vegetable ($19.80) – a bowl of Noodle with Shark Bone Cartilage ($9.80) and a bowl of plain congee ($3.20). As would be expected, service charge and GST would be added to the bill. Additionally, there would be the usual Chinese restaurant overheads – snacks ($0.80 each), wet towel ($0.80 each) and tea ($$2.80 per person).
The food was served quite promptly. Service was friendly and attentive.
The Deep Fried Egg Plant with Meat Floss looked rather unexciting but it tasted very good. Instead of the usual fluffy meat floss, at Old Hong Kong Kitchen the eggplant was topped with deep fried garlic and meat floss. The crispy bits of garlic added depth to the dish’s aroma, flavour and texture.
The portion size of the Braised Beancurd with Mushroom & Vegetable was quite large. The dish was nice bit nothing very special.
We were surprised when the congee was served. It came in a very large bowl. It could easily be shared by two to three persons if you are having the congee with other dishes.
The Noodle with Shark Bone Cartilage was one of the recommended specialities of Old Hong Kong Kitchen. It did not disappoint. The mee
