The pork dishes featured were peasant type food but looked comforting, like pork stew and spicy roasted pork served on a bed of creamy scrambled eggs. So, we decided to give it a try.
|The decor on one side of the restaurant is rather rustic and has bigger tables for groups of six and above.|
|On the other side however, the decor is more contemporary with cosier seatings for parties of 2 to 4 people.|
|We were seated on the more rustic side which I preferred. There is no wine list, just choose servicing sized and type. We choose a small one (150ml I think as G drove) and Shiraz. It was surprisingly good, although I still didn't what I had.|
|The bread rolls arrived. We were a little disappointed as the rolls were not warm.|
For mains, it was a toss between:
(i) The Crispy Skinned Pork Knuckle Regarded as Hong Kong's Best Pork Knuckle, marinated and cooked for 3 days to ensure perfect tenderness and a crispy skin. Served with home-made sauerkraut, roasted carrots and potatoes from their Salted Pig Sharing Feats menu or
(ii) Roasted Suckling Pig with roasted vegetables.
The waiter recommended the suckling pig.
|While waiting for our suckling pig, the waitress started cutting up the pork knuckle dish right next to us. We started to doubt our choice.|
Although the suckling pig was a let down, we only had 2 dishes here, one good and one fair. So, unable to form a definitive view on the restaurant. There are still many more dishes on the menu to try and most of the dishes are large and needed to be shared. I think I will have to organising an eating party and come back here some time.
