Hong Kong Eating - My thoughts

stanleyk | Aug 24, 2010 06:10 AM

I am finally back form a month away travelling which started with a few days in Hong Kong and a few restaurants visited. First off I think I will say that I was a little disappointed with my meals in HK, maybe my expectations were too high, or maybe my menu choices bad, but nothing blew me away as I had hoped it might. The restaurants visited were Sun Tung Lok, Tims Kitchen and Robuchon a Galera. The two dim sum lunches failed to deliver anything that really got me going (afraid memory has removed full ordering), neither would score much above a 1/10 on my scoring system. That said the shrimp dishes were always excellent and the turnip cakes at STL were great. I am a little embarassed to admit it, but the best meal by far was at RAG, a definite 8/10 for me, maybe more suited to my western palatte? Anyway, it was excellent in every way, from the fabulous breads to the very solid cooking throughout, the excellent sommelier nd wine pairing and the two trolleys for desserts and petits fours, if only Macau was a bit easier to get to!
