Cheng Kee Chiu Chow Restaurant (鄭記潮州食家)

Where:
Cheng Kee Chiu Chow Restaurant (鄭記潮州食家)
G/F, 142 Tung Lo Wan Road, Tai Hang

Phone:
+852 2578 8179 (I don’t really think it’s a booking kind of place though)

Price range:
$120ish a head – take note, we ordered a lot, waiter was concerned we couldn’t finish. Lucky for him, I’m pretty greedy.

The deal:
I found this place by applying high grade Hong Kong tactics – a) it smelled good b) it’s always busy / has a queue and c) full of local Hong Kong people. Conclusion: I want to get in on the hype and join the crowd. This is a totally English unfriendly – no menus in English, no pictorial menu – so get your best HK friend to come with you and go and nom up a Chiu Chow storm. I really enjoyed this – my best HK friend made sure that we ordered all the signature Chiu Chow dishes and she ordered dishes that would offend most gwai lo sensibilities. Fuck yeah props to eating out with Asian friends who want to eat all the more unusual stuff – stewed blood curds/cube, squid/pig ears, oyster congee rice porridge and the oyster pancake. She did ask me if I eat organs – fun fact, the only food I actively dislike is capsicum/peppers. We snacked down on some gwai lo friendly goose too. Anyway, it was all fucking tasty and even better it’s open til 1am – so it’s snacks on for after drinking. Late night factor might explain some of the clientele – my super sweet HK friend looking appalled as she reported that the tables next to us which had HK guys, drinking Blue Girl and snacking down on Chiu Chow snacks were using ‘terrible, terrible language’. However, dat oyster pancake – I want you in my life again!!

The verdict:
Fuck yeah!!!! And in honour of the ‘terrible, terrible language’ guys – fucking mother fucking fuck fuck yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
