Hong Kong - Chiu Chow in CWB

Sometimes all you want is something simple.  That simple bowl of rice porridge, no not congee as the Cantonese eat, but more akin to gruel.  A cleansing of the palate and warmth to the soul, it is certainly comforting to say the least.

Of course, pair with usual Chiu Chow staples like preserved vegetables with fish (this one had the bonus of generous fish roe too) and stewed chicken feet with peanuts.

The highlights here were the white bait omelette which was perfectly fried with a generous layer of white bait laced with spring onions in between.

The Golden Squid was really deep fried squid which has been coated in batter flavoured with salted egg.  Looks like nothing but tastes like everything.  Very fragrant and addictive especially if you order a cold beer.  Sinful but good.

Of course, I happily ate without looking at the sign nor taking a business card, so I have no idea what it's called.  I haven't been successful getting the address online either, but if you walk into Tang Lung Street from the Canal Road East side, it's the first lit shop on your right.  Can't miss the many tables outside on the driveway, with smokers still enjoying the limited places to dine and still light up.
