Spring Deer Restaurant (鹿鳴春), Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong

Spring Deer Restaurant, peking duck
This place (1/F, 42 Mody Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong, tel : + 857 2366 4012 / 2366 5839) served the best Peking duck I've ever had. Bar none. Each morsel of meat was filled with juices from the bird and melted fat beneath the skin. The quality of the duck was hardly surprising since there was always the option of fresh meat supply. The wraps that were used here were like pita instead of the thin slices of skin that I was used to.

I think the pictures would suffice in doing the rest of the talking here.

These deep fried egg white soufflé that they served for desserts were unfortunately somewhat of a bore. They were a little too dense and floury rather than fluffy and light. I recall the menu mentioning that they were suppose to have bananas in them, rather than just red bean paste.

Spring Deer Restaurant, Tsingtao
And possibly for posterity, this was the first time I have ever had Tsingtao. It's actually not to bad after all these years of imagining that it would taste exactly like Tiger.
