Heichinrou, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
I have been to this restaurant a couple of times now, once for dim sum and another for dinner. I have to say, both times, food was really good. Heichinrou can be found in Times Square in Causeway Bay on the 11th Floor. Can you believe that I don’t go to dim sum very often in Hong Kong? Maybe once every quarter, not even that! I used to go once a month in Sydney but got very sick of it very quickly. Having dim sum with just ‘The Mother’ sometimes is hard, as you can’t eat as much… well he can’t anyways.
We started with some soy chicken which believe it or not, was eaten by Dragon herself! My friend, M, only had like 2 pieces – Sorry! It was deliciously tender and the skin silky smooth!
I absolutely love yu tau wrapped in Cheung fun.
The hundred thousand year old egg was also delicious – a favourite of mine.
Chicken feet which was delicious.
M ordered the shrimp dumpling – it was huge and she absolutely enjoyed it.
Dragon was still hungry and insisted that we order more chicken wings (she was doing the chicken wings movement!) We ordered these wings which were slightly sweet.
For dessert, I couldn’t go past the custard with yolk – OH MY! This was deliciously sinful – love the oozy egg yolk! NICE!
For dinner, there were 3.5 of us – two of my high school friends and Dragon of course! She wouldn’t want to miss out on char siu and soy chicken! We started with char siu and this was good. Had the right amount of fat and meat ratio. Yum!
Dinner with M is never complete if there are no vegetables – beans with minced pork – one of my favourites, but a tad on the oily side.
Soy chicken – this was as good as lunch!
M and S wanted the claypot rice which came with blood sausage, Chinese sausage, some pig trotters and chicken. I love blood and Chinese sausage which were delicious.
Service I thought was good and efficient. Will definitely go back to try their other dishes!
