Guangdong Barbecue Restaurant - Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong

December 11, 2018

Trying to find this place was not as easy, especially if we neither of us spoke the language. We found our way however to this double or triple story restaurant tucked away in Ashley Road. We were then escorted upstairs to our table and weren't sure what to expect but knew we had to at least get one of their roasts.

Although the place may not look the best with aircon not so cool, sweaty diners inside and  finding it hard to get the waiters' attention when wanting to order, the place seemed to have been packed with people even queueing out the front. The food wasn't as good as what we thought it would be. Or maybe we just had that idea of what it would be, how it would taste and so on..

Imagining the roast pork would be the same as back here in Aussie, we weren't expecting what we received. Roasted Pig with crispy skin was very very oily which since we didn't order just plain steamed rice, seemed a bit too sickening? Not sure if that should be the word used but a bit here and there was fine at first but after the first few, it just felt a bit heavy.

The crispy skin was not as crispy and was again, oily. It seemed a bit rubbier too.

To accompany our pork, we ordered Yeung Chau Style Fried Rice with Dried Scallop. It looked a bit oily at first and we were hoping for it to not be too oily, but it was slightly oilier than we hoped. Being able to taste the dried scallop and the ham, it didn't really need any more saltiness. The simple shallots and egg mixed in well with the fried rice.

*Please note this is a delayed post and as such, the menu may have changed since my visit to the establishment.
