We had a very tasty dinner at Chef Hung's in Chinatown recently. It was packed with families and a large group of elderly gentlemen ( 3 tables worth ). Instead of a set menu we went with some family favorites ....... most of the dishes we ordered as one and a half sized servings. Yes, not double sized - one and a half. The steamed pork was a large portion already so it wasn't necessary to increase the order. Our waitress gave us some guidance in which dishes to upsize.
We started with the complementary house soup - a chicken feet/herb soup that had a rich chicken flavor. Some of the dishes we ordered ....... lamb and bean curd claypot, walnut prawns, beef stew with radishes, a choy with garlic, steamed pork & salted fish, steamed chicken / mushrooms. The dinner ended with some complementary red bean soup.
The bill came to $89 for 9 adults - and there was food left over. The dishes were generally well seasoned and well prepared. The steamed pork hash was particularly well done ..... the pork was almost fluffy and there was a lot of juice in the dish ....... enough to season many bowls of rice. The beef stew was cooked long enough to be tender and there was some tendon mixed in with the meat. Good meal all in all. Look forward to returning again.
