Lunch at Loong Yat Heen

My dad’s friend, Allen, invited us to lunch at Loong Yat Heen in The Kowloon Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui.

The last time I ate at Loong Yat Heen the restaurant was in the basement. Now it’s on the 2nd floor sharing space with The Window Cafe. I remember eating the best roast goose there.

Instead of the usual peanuts they had marinated fried tofu that were a bit salty, sweet, spicy and totally yummy.

Alen ordered the set lunch for 4 which costs HK$1,180.

The dim sum sampler was excellent!

One of the best fried bean curd skin I’ve ever eaten. Crisp skin, not oily and large succulent shrimp inside.

My favorite dim sum done very well. Hot, flaky crust with not too sweet barbecued pork filling.

I didn’t like the soup because of the slimy aloe. It’s definitely an acquired taste. Too bad the soup tasted actually good but I couldn’t pick out the aloe bits so I passed on the soup.

The fish was well cooked but a bit ordinary.

I just liked his hand.
braised oyster w/ bacon & onion

This was my favorite dish even though I wasn’t a big fan of oysters.

That was one huge oyster. Despite it’s size it was tender, meaty and the sauce was delicious. It didn’t taste like a Chinese dish at all.

The Chinese restaurants in Hong Kong really have the art to making crispy chicken down to pat. This was another winner!

After all that food we were stuffed. And they bring out fried rice topped with 2 kinds of sauces? Crazy!

We all shared a bowl to try and the rest went into a doggy bag. I like the cream sauce much better. The tomato sauce was too sweet. Think Jollibee spaghetti.

There’s always a compartment in my stomach that’s open for dessert. The walnut soup was creamy and had a rich and strong nutty flavor. The glutinous dumpling stuffed with sesame paste was yummy too.
