The Night Market, Central, Hong Kong
11 Stanley Street in Central is a building that has a lot of restaurants. I don’t know if this is a good or bad thing, but I have tried every single restaurant in this building except for the Veggie SF! It is easy, close to the office, and some of the restaurants are pretty decent. I have been to the Night Market a couple of times now, I have heard about the bad service, but haven’t had any problems thus far.
The Night Market offers diners’ lunch sets from Monday to Friday which ranges from (HKD40 – 100). I couldn’t go past the milk tea with grass jelly – yum! You can even ask for it to be less sweet or not sweet at all.
First visit, I couldn’t go past the fried pork chop which sat on a mountain of rice and came with three sides – pickles, mapo tofu and vegetables. It was quite a large and generous serving, the pork chop had a very crunchy exterior and the meat tender and succulent.
One colleague had the steamed flounder with black bean sauce. Unfortunately he didn’t enjoy the black bean sauce but thought the fish was cooked beautiful.
I have also tried the braised pork chop – which is very similar to the fried pork chop but braised. The skin is less crispy, but the meat still wonderfully tender.
The three cup chicken is not too bad, albeit a smaller serving (sorry no photo!) and the black pepper filled mignon is tender but the black pepper was a little over powering I thought.
As I mentioned earlier, I have not had any problems with the service, although we do come here relatively early. There are two floors, come to either one, food comes relatively quickly and although it is not the best Taiwanese food I have had, it is ok.
