  1. Hope I'm not too late - I just got back from HK last week and whilst I am biased towards Tsim Chai Kee for their humongous wantons and soup, I have to admit that the noodles are better at Mak's - Which is across the road. However, the soup was a bit too peppery for my liking at Mak's.

    I stayed in Tin Hau and thoroughly enjoyed a couple of meals I had at Shek Kee Kitchen (G/F Fai Hon building, No. 15-17 Ngan Mok Street), where they specialise in (literal translation) Small Dishes, but it's pretty much simple home-cooked food which is served here. I particularly liked the steamed minced pork and lotus root and various claypot rice dishes there.

    Another Tin Hau essential is Teem Yee Yee which translates as "Sweet Auntie" (G/F 13 Tsing Fung Street, Tin Hau) which is a HK Style dessert house, I'm particularly partial to sago pudding (especially with mango), but there wasn't anything I didn't like from what we tried there; From the instant tofu dessert served in a bucket with a timer counting down when it's ready to reveal silky, soft tofu dessert, to the delicious grass jelly and cocoa de nata mxed with coconut milk and fruit of your choice. The service can be a bit patchy, but the desserts are all delicious here.

  2. Can you tell us a bit about the 4 angled bean? I've never seen anything like it at all and am curious to know what it's like - Is it similar to something like a green bean in taste or even texture? The dish you showed was a 4 angled bean and chilli salad so was it served cold or were they stir-fried with the chilli?

  3. Wow! The mains prices really have come down a bit, but that only makes the dishes more likely to included when creating our own tasting menu (along with a selection of starters).

    I've booked a table in July for my sister's Birthday treat but am itching to go back (like you) to try the set lunch, I thought it was good value 3 courses for £25 anyway so the slight drop in price makes it even more appealing. May have try to and sneak in a cheeky trip down to London between now and July..

  4. Just wanted to quickly add that I ate here last week (as a Birthday lunch treat) and absolutely loved it - From the relaxed atmosphere, lovely interior, friendly and very helpful staff to the great food. Sure, it may not have been the most delicious food I've eaten so far this year but I loved how the concept and design of the menu brought a sense of fun to proceedings.

    As an extra treat to take away, I got some cake all gift wrapped with a "Happy Birthday" note which I thought was a lovely touch by them. It was the cherry top to a fantastic afternoon there and I look forward to going back.
