The Hong Kong outpost of this Beijing-based brand serves dishes from the Chinese capital and the regions around the lower stretches of the Huai and Yangtze Rivers. The restaurant is particularly proud of its award-winning wok-fried crabmeat and lobster with salted egg yolk on rice crackers. With a jelly lake and a mid-flight crane crafted from a radish, it’s an elaborate set-up for what’s essentially a one-bite affair. There are subtler—and more substantial—ways to appreciate the chefs’ skills, however. Try the sautéed chicken with matsutake and minced chicken dumplings, or the baked oxtail served in a black vinegar sauce that’s so delicious, you’ll want to drink it by the spoonful. If you have trouble choosing from the extensive menu, the knowledgeable staff are always on hand to help.
What to order
- The baked oxtail with black vinegar has a sauce that you’ll want to eat with everything.
- Sautéed chicken with matsutake and minced chicken dumplings boast wrappers that are near-translucent yet impressively resilient.
- Longjing tea leaf-smoked duck eggs are simple but satisfying starts to the meal.
The restaurant often offers seasonal specialities that are not often found elsewhere in the city.
