Lei Yue Mun is just a boat ride away from Hong Kong island, very close from Sai Wan Ho, where we caught the boat from. It is one of Hong Kong’s most popular seafood venues, and has over a dozen seafood restaurant. My parents have been raving about Lei Yue Mun and the cheap seafood. ‘The Mother’s’ parents were in town and we thought we would take them there, walk around and have some seafood.
We rocked up at midday and ALL the restaurants were quiet! Our trick of picking the busiest restaurant did not work, we were told that dinner is probably their busiest time as everyone is still asleep during the day. Lung Mun Seafood is where we ended up, it’s been operating since 1967 and has more than 40 years of history.
We started with the razor clams which were served with vermicelli and lots of garlic. I love razor clams and these were delicious. However, in saying that, I think there was TOO much garlic for my liking!
Tender, succulent beef with shallots. It was good but nothing special I thought.
The sweet and sour pork was good but definitely not the best I have had. Thought the pork meat was a little hard, which is a shame.
The bite size salt and pepper tofu was delicious. It’s soft and pillow-y and delicious.
We also ordered steam fish which I forgot to take a photo off but it was delicious.
Service was friendly and good, however, we were the only customers. Not sure what it is like if it was busy. Thought the food was good, we didn’t order a lot of high end seafood but what we ordered was definitely tasty. I certainly wouldn’t mind going back for dinner.
