Shanghai Lo, Wan Chai, Hong Kong
I was catching up with the auditor, M, for lunch and she suggested Shanghai Lo, which is located on 1/F of a building called Tonno at Tonnochy Road. It is apparently the sister of the upmarket cha chaan teng, Loyal Dining on Wellington Street (which believe it or not I have not yet been!).
I left all the ordering to M, and she definitely ordered well – as always! We started with these little babies, xiao long bao (had to order 2 servings) which Dragon absolutely loved! She finished 4 (or was it 5) by herself.
I absolutely loved these smoked tea eggs – very smokey and the yolk was deliciously soft.
M knows Dragon well – she loves chicken and opt for the deep fried chicken topped with scallion soya sauce and this was superb. Skin was deliciously crispy and chicken tender. Dragon definitely ate her share of portion!!!
We couldn’t go past the tender braised pork with preserved vegetables with Shanghainese buns. Definitely the highlight of lunch! The pork had the right amount of fat to meat ratio and the bun was delicious – definitely a winner!
The menu is definitely vast and we didn’t even order half the menu! Definitely keen for dinner to try their other dishes. We were too full for dessert, next time will have to remind myself to save room!
