Manor, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

Last time I was in Hong Kong, I didn’t get a chance to go to Manor, so was definitely keen to try this time round. Manor can be found in a back street of the bustling Causeway Bay and Wanchai district. I have heard wonderful things about this restaurant, but was surprised that the restaurant was relatively empty when we visited on Sunday.

We left all the ordering to S, M’s fiancé who had to please the crowd and let’s just say he did not disappoint. He did ask ‘do you like roasted suckling pig’? HELLO! HELL YEAH!!!!

We started with beef which was cooked with spring onions, the beef was incredibly succulent and I love the aroma from the spring onions.

The sea urchin cooked with pomelo was a favourite of mind. I have never had it with pomelo but this was seriously tasty. The sea urchin was melt-in-your-mouth tender.

I have never had goose feet, I have had chicken feet but this was different. Texture I thought was not as smooth, and the sauce was a little on the sweet side. I think I do prefer chicken feet better but it was interesting at least, and glad to say I have tried it.

Now, the moment of truth, the main event – roasted suckling pig. Half a pig, the grid is in fact the crispy skin which has been cut into squares and ready to be placed on top of a pancake and smothered with hoisin sauce. The crackle glistened, and it was fantastically crispy! It was so hard not to eat the whole thing on my own.

Once the crispy skin has been eaten, the rest is chopped up so you can have the tender, pink flesh meat and it did not disappoint – truly succulent meat!

The smoked tea chicken was very strong in aroma. The chicken was so soft and tender but the smoked tea flavour was too strong for my liking. However, other diners really enjoyed it.

The tofu topped with pork and what I thought was preserved vegetables was light and tasty. I love tofu but was getting really full by this stage, however, the tofu was silky smooth!

We also ordered a side of vegetables which was served with tofu – unfortunately I didn’t take a photo of this. Dessert was complimentary red bean soup which I didn’t really enjoy. They added some sort of vegetable in it which I thought was a little odd. I do prefer Mum’s simple red bean soup.

The suckling pig would have to be the highlight of the evening, but each dish was beautifully cooked and tasty. I really enjoyed my meal here, and wouldn’t hesitate to return, especially to try the roast goose, which had to be ordered a day in advance.

Service good, and friendly.

    That crispy skin pork is making me very envious of you right now, and I love it with pancakes too.

    Oh wow I am drooling over that little suckling pig. How did you find the webbing on the goose feet? They look totally different to chicken feet (of course) and bigger.

      hey sara, thought the webbing on the goose a little tougher than chicken feet. not sure if i am a fan, but glad i hv tried it!
