Ever since I introduced my friend Elizabeth to one of my favorite restaurants in Tsim Sha Tsui it is now her on her list of ‘must-eat’ in Hong Kong. Wu Kong is a Shanghainese restaurant that serves the BEST xiao long bao in my opinion. Yes even better than Din Tai Fung (Hong Kong).
Elizabeth also discovered their hot pot which she really loves. Even though I was still so full from breakfast buffet at the Club InterContinental lounge I joined her for lunch since she skipped breakfast.
Many Chinese restaurants serve this honey ham but Wu Kong is the only place I seen that adds crispy bean curd sheet to it. The added texture is fantastic and it also helped tone down the sweetness of the ham. After eating a couple of these without the bread I was truly unable to eat a bite more.
