Pickled Pelican, Stanley, Hong Kong

It’s definitely been a while since I ate at the pub. Prior to having Dragon, ‘The Mother’ and I would eat at the pub at least once a week for trivia, and catching up with friends. To be honest, I have missed that pub grub – the chicken schnitzel, the $10 steak, and the pies. ‘The Mother’ and I thought we would go to Stanley for lunch and have pub grub.

There are a number of pubs to choose from in Stanley – it’s not a place i go often but I don’t mind the markets and I have found an uber cool store that sells children toys and furniture at Stanley Plaza!

Pickled Pelican can be found on the main strip facing the water. ‘The Mother’ has been here a couple of times and suggested we go here. The place was packed when we rocked up, but we found a seat inside but close enough to the door for some fresh air.

The menu consisted everything you could think off for pub grub – burgers, schnitzel, ribs, chicken wings, you name it, they had it! I couldn’t go past the chicken schnitzel with fries, lemon and cucumber salad. The problem with getting chicken schnitzel at pubs is that the chicken tends to be dry and over coated but this was perfect. Even Dragon couldn’t resist eating some and the lemon and cucumber salad was a wonderful complement.

‘The Mother’ ordered the herbed beef tenderloin skewer with potatoes, and greek salad. The beef was surprisingly tender and who can say no to greek salad.

It was a casual lunch and the place was perfect for kids, they even had kids plastic cutlery which was a bonus. After lunch, we walked around the plaza and got Dragon a sofa bed which she utterly loves. Who wouldn’t? i wouldn’t mind one either!

It was a gorgeous sunny day, bit on the humid side, but nothing an ice cream or cold drink couldn’t fix. Think we will be back to Stanley to check out the other pubs.
