SEAFOOD DINNER AT TUNG KEE SEAFOOD RESTAURANT, SAI KUNG HOI PONG SQUARE, HONG KONG.

Hong Kong, Day 1 - Seafood Dinner.

We had our first seafood dinner at Sai Kung Hoi Pong Square in Hong Kong. Altogether there were twelve of us including three Hong Kong hosts. We were seated in an air-conditioned room on the first floor in Tung Kee Seafood Restaurant.

One of our host had taken care of the food orders and our part were to enjoy the food laid before us. We were all looking forward to enjoy the seafood feast!
We started off with this appetizer - Boiled Chicken Feet!

Sand Ginger (Cekur in Malay) Dipping Sauce for the Boiled Chicken Feet. We enjoyed the appetizer.

Another available Dipping Sauce - Wasabi with soy sauce.
After the appetizer, the actual seafood feast began!

Ice Mountain Platter - Beautifully arranged Fresh and Succulent, Raw Seafood on Ice. There were Crab Claws, Prawns, Scallops, Salmon, Geoduck Clams or Elephant Trunk Clams, Octupus, Fish, etc.

These were really fresh and everything was raw! Amazingly I tasted every item on this plate! Normally, I wouldn't eat raw seafood! And they tasted very fresh, natural sweet and succulent too.

Deep Fried Sesame Chicken. Crispy skin and tender, juicy meat.

Steamed Scallops garnished with glass vermicelli, garlic, etc.

The scallops were covered with garnishing of glass or transparent vermicelli, etc. The size of the scallop shell compared to the 7 inch saucer plate.

Lobster and Noodles with Rich & Creamy Cheese Sauce. This was very tasty.

Razor Clams or Razor Shells cooked with big onions, green and red capsicums, preserved salted black beans, sauce, etc.

Long, fleshy and succulent razor clams.

Deep Fried Calamari or Squids.

Cooked just right with a tender texture.

Steamed Grouper Fish. Good!

Crabs cooked with ginger slices and spring onions.

We couldn't decide on whether to steam or deep fry the oysters, so our host took a vote. Deep fry oysters has more votes. After having tasted the deep fried oysters, we all agreed that steamed oysters should taste better. The oysters were big!
Deep Fried Mantis Prawns with Chili and Salt. Very flavourful.

Escargots or Edible Snails cooked in Spicy Szechuan sauce. I only took one to try, a first time for me eating snail!

Blanched Green Vegetables (Lai Pak in Cantonese).

Special Fried Rice, a must order and a must try! Well recommended, thumbs up for the fried rice!

Desserts - Mango Pudding.

Smooth texture and not too sweet, just right for me!

And fruits - watermelon and grapes. This was what's left when I remembered I haven't taken its photo.

Besides Chinese Tea, Blue Girl Beer and Schweppes (cream soda) were also served. Free flowing of drinks!

This was our 16 course seafood dinner
(inclusive of appetizer, pudding and fruits)
And what about the cost of the dinner?
I think it came to about MYR 270 - MYR 300 per pax
(approx. 70 - 79 USD per pax).

I have seen You in the sanctuary and beheld Your power and Your glory.

Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify You.

I will praise You as long as I live, and in Your name I will lift up

my hands. I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;

with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

(Psalm 63:2-5, New International Version-NIV)

  1. Wow, that was quite a feast. I don't know about the boiled chicken feet and the raw seafood but the rest looks very appetizing. I know that chicken feet are a delicacy. You're a good sport to eat food that you normally wouldn't eat. It's all a matter of custom and taste.
    Thanks for sharing your restaurant adventures with us.

    Hugs,
    JB

  4. Did you all eat steamed oysters here since you said that they taste better than deep fried oysters? I see some prawn heads on the raw platter but are there raw prawns body to be eaten too? I have never eaten raw prawns.

    RM300 per person? Wow, that is expensive but as long as you all enjoyed eating all the food, that's what count.

    1. Hi Paul, I understand many do not eat chicken feet but over here chicken feet is a delicacy. I guess its a matter of getting used to it. I love Calamari but eat Escargots is new to me. I might get to love them once I get used to them. I thank you for joining me in this food experience!
