Siu Lam Kung, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong
Siu Lam Kung can be found in Sheung Wan. I am on the hunt for the best suckling pig on Hong Kong island. I know there are a few places on Kowloon side but have not ventured that way yet. We were here for a family gathering, the menu is pretty extensive and had every single dish you can think off! However, we were here for one thing, the suckling pig and the penguin chicken. The two dishes we had to order in advance.
We started with the peppered pork belly soup – this was surprisingly tasty, full of flavours and not to mention the yummy pork belly, as well as chicken feet. I know chicken feet are not everyone’s cup of tea but it was soft and tender. It had a really nice spicy kick to it.
The dish of the evening was the suckling pig, we only got half serve as we could never finish one! It was still a relatively large serving and the pig was absolutely delicious! Thin, crispy and crunchy skin, and the pork was deliciously tender that I couldn’t stop eating it and in hindsight should have ordered a whole pig!
The penguin chicken is not something I have seen before. Apparently they roast the chicken vertically like roast ducks and it is one of the more popular dish at the restaurant. The skin was crispy and the meat juicy and tender.
We also ordered the peppered beef which was excellent. The beef again was melt-in-your-mouth tender.
The braised tofu, mushroom and vegetables were also good.
Overall I thought all the dishes were good, I really enjoyed the suckling pig! It’s definitely time to eat another suckling pig, where is your favourite suckling pig place?
