Lunch at Pak Loh Chiu Chow Restaurant

Pak Loh Chiu Chow-005
Pak Loh is another of my favorite restaurants in Hong Kong. What makes it different is they specialize in Chiu Chow cuisine instead of Cantonese cuisine which is widely available in Hong Kong.

Chiuchow or Teochew cusisine (潮州菜) originates from the Chaoshan region of China in the north-easternmost area of the Guangdong province, which includes the cities of Chaozhou, Shantou and Jieyang. The cuisine of Teochew bears more similarities to that of Fujian cuisine, to which it shares same dishes, which may be due to Chaoshan and Fujian’s cultural and language similarities and geographic proximity. However, Chiuchow cuisine is also influenced by Cantonese cuisine in its style and technique. from Wikipedia.

We always order this clear and flavorful soup filled with delicious fish ball, fish cake and lots of seaweed.

I was happy to see my new favorite oyster omelet/pancake in their menu.

Their version is more ‘egg-y’ and it wasn’t as sticky as the ones in Manila’s restaurants. I liked that it had lots of fresh oysters instead of sweet potato flour which is often used as an extender.

In Manila we douse the oyster omelet with ketchup or hot sauce. They had a salty sauce similar to ‘patis’ which was good with the omelet too.

We also ordered their dim sum platter good for 3 people. Each plate contained 4 kinds of dim sum. All were good but my favorite was the squarish dough filled with a meat and glutinous rice mixture. It was different and delish!

As usual we ordered my all-time favorite dish that can only be found in Chiu Chow restaurants. I’ve been eating this dish since I was a kid. Yes that was decades ago and I still love this chicken with chinjew sauce. I also enjoy eating the crunchy veggies.

Anyone going to Hong Kong must try this restaurant at least once. They also have a branch at Elements mall so you can eat there right after checking in at the Airport Express station in Austin.
