We always eat at Chuk Yuen on our first or second day in Hong Kong. It’s my comfort food in Hong Kong and I really needed it after my unsatisfactory meals at Carpaccio and Ginza Bairin the previous day.
When you have lunch at Chuk Yuen they USUALLY offer you FREE hot sugarcane or orange juice.
The next two dishes are only available during winter months. It’s because the richness and oiliness of the Chinese sausage and dried meats are hearty enough for cold weather. That’s how I understand it.
Their version of my favorite glutinous rice with Chinese sausage (lap cheong) and dried meat was one of the best I’ve tried. The rice was soft and not greasy and the flavor was very good. The serving was actually a small one and we managed to eat a couple of spoonfuls each and it was more than enough.

I love anything with Chinese sausage and I’m happy that their sausage wasn’t as fatty as others. One bun had duck liver sausage (pic below) and the other had the regular pork sausage.

On our last day in Hong Kong our last meal was also at Chuk Yuen. That’s how much we love their food. This time my dad’s friend joined us and we let him do the ordering for a change. This meal they didn’t give us juice only dessert.

Every time someone asks me for restaurant recommendations in Hong Kong the first name I always say is Chuk Yuen. Do try it and you will not regret it. Whatever you order will be good. I promise. I just have to try their dinner menu next time. I haven’t done that in a while.
