Went to HK for a short course on Dysport in this July and also to visit a friend’s clinic in Causeway Bay. Thanks, Shiu Kee, for showing me around! One always learn something, no matter how much you think you already know. :D
We’ve been on a Michelin Star sprint, so we decided to continue with it in Hong Kong. :D First one we tried was dim sum at Tin Lung Heen, a 2-star Michelin restaurant.
breathtaking views of the bay
The dim sum is creative, unlike the kind you usually find in Singapore, and of course, top quality.
Deep fried shrimp toast – in other words, prawn on bread!
baked barbecue pork bun with almond flakes

steamed rice roll with barbecued Iberian pork and mushroom
fish maw soup in real coconut husk – the fragrance of coconut in the soup is something different.
steamed lobster dumpling with shrimp and scallop topping with golden leaf
on the house, with compliments: sesame cookies and almond pudding!
We went to T’ang Court, a 2-star Michelin restaurant, for dinner that night, but it was not as memorable as the last time we visited. The only dish I had to order again that night was this one below:
pork, onion & parsley in claypot
We had this dish a year ago when we first dined at T’ang Court and it was so delectable I felt I didn’t have enough of it then. It was already off the menu by the time we revisited and we had to make a special order for it. Didn’t lose its lustre at all and didn’t disappoint. :)
The highlight of our Michelin spree was at Lung Kin Heen, the only Chinese restaurant with 3-star Michelin in HK.
Great view, fabulous food.
Chef’s Signature appetiser selection: barbecued suckling pig, barbecued pork with honey, roast goose with plum sauce
I also had the superior pottage with shredded chicken. It came in a small pot with a flame underneath to keep it piping hot. Fine tasting soup.
Highly recommended: crispy scallops with fresh pear and Yunnan ham.
Highly recommended! Crispy lobster with salted egg yolk and pine nuts.
crispy shrimp dumplings with mustard and honey sauce
Not everything was worthy. There was an asparagus and tofu dish that was bland and a huge disappointment. Do not try that one. :(
Nonetheless, for the awesome view and the other 3-star, thumbs-up food, I surely look forward to visit again. ;)
