Hong Kong was the 2nd country I visited after Vietnam way back in 2013 and this country holds a special place in my heart. There is something about its alleyways and subways and little nooks and crannies that I find so endearing. I have explored HK a few more times since then and every time it is always a different and new experience for me.
For this visit, it was not about leisure but it was a working visit. Nevertheless, I still got to explore gustatory delights here and there. On one of those nights, me and my colleagues together with the boss had dinner at the Shangri-la in Kowloon in TST. We bee-lined for the Chinese restaurant and had a proper Chinese dinner.
Before we started our dinner and as soon as we had taken our seats, they brought us wonderful and fragrant hot tea to refresh us.
For appetizers we had deep fried prawns with wasabi mayonnaise and salty egg yolk of which I had failed to take a picture of because we were on it right away and some century egg. These were one of the yummiest and smoothest century eggs I had ever tasted. Just thinking about it again makes my mouth water. We also had some marinated pork knuckle with soy sauce. These were also good and great pre dinner eats.
For the main course, of course, we had the Roasted Peking duck in 2 ways. First with the crispy skin wrapped together with vegetables and a dipping sauce and for me this was the highlight and everyone enjoyed it.
We were given colorful little mooncakes as dessert and it was the perfect ending for that meal.
Service was excellent and everything was just nice. Good to have dinner in places like this from time to time. I'd give it a 4/5. On another note, the Shang Palace here has been award 2 Michelin stars. ⭐⭐
