Lunch at Lung King Heen

Baked whole abalone puffs w/ diced chicken
I was excited to finally eat at Lung King Heen. It’s one of the best Chinese restaurants in Hong Kong. From their website:

Lung King Heen is the only Chinese restaurant in the world to receive three Michelin stars. The only Chinese chef ever to receive this prestigious accolade, Executive Chinese Chef Chan Yan Tak is the master behind the intricately designed menu. Chef Chan combines textures and flavours coupled with inventive presentation to excite the taste buds and satisfy the most demanding epicure.

We ordered mostly dim sum which was their specialty. Everything was superb and superior to any dim sum I’ve ever eaten before.

Unlike in other restaurants these rice rolls were not greasy. It was spiced just right and the rolls were al dente.

These baked abalone puffs were my favorite from lunch. I’ve never eaten anything like this before. The crust was similar to a shortbread crust and it was buttery and crisp. It was filled with tender abalone with a very flavorful sauce. The contrast in texture and flavors was just amazing. It was pricey but worth every bite.

Eating in this restaurant is a must for those going on a food trip in Hong Kong. It’s your chance to eat food prepared by a Michelin 3 star chef. It’s expensive but worth every dollar. I hope I get a chance to eat there again. There’s so many other dishes I want to try from their extensive menu.
