Finally hit the highly touted newest 3-star Michelin Chinese restaurant in the latest version of the Hong Kong/Macau guide. Oddly located in a mass-market mall in TST, decor was comfy, and reminiscent of a brighter T'ang Court. Comfy chairs and tables that aren't too close to each other like in most Chinese restaurants. Service was efficient and professional even if impersonal. And the food?
|生磨杏仁露 Fresh-ground Almond Broth|
|梅菜扣肉包 or Stewed Belly Pork with Preserved Vegetables|
|鵝肝芋角 Yam Pastry with Goose liver|
|鮑魚批 Abalone Pies|
|鮑汁鵝掌意粉 Linguini with Goose Web in Abalone Sauce|
|黃橋燒餅 Northern Style Yellow Bridge Meat Pasties|
My conclusion: Sun Tung Lok is probably just not a yum cha place. Perhaps I gotta do the un-PC thing and just have their sharks' fin and suckling pig dishes. Maybe I might agree with the 3-star rating then. Otherwise, it's just a very comfy place to have above average Cantonese food.
