Peking Garden, Central, Hong Kong
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and ate lots with family and friends! We certainly did and you would think the eating would stop but no… it is still going! Hope you were excited about Christmas and your gifts as much as Dragon was!!!
Family gatherings and Chinese food goes hand in hand. I love family gatherings, especially if you haven’t seen them for a while and who doesn’t like Chinese food? Especially when there is Peking Duck involved? We had a magnificent feast and caught up with some of our cousins and aunts which was extremely lovely.
The food at Peking Garden is consistently good – I have been to many different branches, but have not been to the one in Central which is in Alexander House. We left all the ordering to our cousins and they ordered especially well!
The Peking Duck – DELICIOUS! Crispy skin and juicy meat – it was hard not to eat all of it on my own.
The scallops with broccoli are an old favourite.
You can never go wrong with tender beef and bamboo shoots.
A favourite of mine is the sweet and sour pork – it was just right and not sickly. The pork was incredibly tender, and the batter just right.
The chili king prawns were a favourite among the diners.
The mapo tofu was definitely one of my favourites. The tofu silky smooth and the chili brought tears to my eyes!
The highlight was definitely the chicken – which had to be ordered 24 hours in advance.
Inside – fantastic tender chicken which I could not stop eating!
We also ordered other vegetables which I did not take photos off.
For dessert – again I didn’t take photos of the red bean pancake – served warm, it wasn’t too sweet and tasty.
And banana fritters, which was soaked in creaming soda. The batter was sticky and sweet and oh so sinful! Perfect way to end the meal!
Service was good – I wouldn’t say it’s fantastic but it was good. Food was definitely better than the service. Love family gatherings.
