Hong Kong - Yuet Wah Hui Seafood Restaurant

Yuet Wah Hui at Lockhart Road, nearer the Causeway Bay end, is one of my default choices for -simple and well-executed old-style Cantonese favourites. Their piece de resistance in my opinion, is the free-range chicken steamed with ginger and spring onion. It is succulently juicy and the flavours from the marinade steeped into the plump chicken. Perfect with a bowl of steaming hot rice.

Other dishes always worth ordering:

Crayfish stir fried with chillies and garlic

Chinese style Calamari Fritters

Bittergourd stir fried with milk and egg whites

Clams in spicy Chinese wine is also a favorite and the kick from the pepper and chillies in the clear broth never fail to give me heat.

To end, the popular steamed lotus leaf rice always hits the spot.

The beauty of the location is that dessert is always available in nearby bustling Causeway Bay, after a brisk short walk to walk off a hearty meal.

Simple pleasures..
