Tsui Wah (翠華), Clark Quay

Tsui Wah (翠華), Clark Quay

We weren't fans or had even visited with any regularity at Tsui Wah in Hong Kong. Don't get me wrong. It was just that one time so far. But we've also been curious about the outfit of theirs (#01-03 Clark Quay, 3A River Valley Road, tel : +65 6250 9270) that's opened up here. Despite that curiosity, we also understood that it would be wise for the initially barrage to subside before checking it out for ourselves. 

Tsui Wah, fish soup wantons

That's wanton in fish soup. Not getting the fish flavour from the soup but the wantons were okay. It's not bad but I wouldn't order them again.

Tsui Wah, noodles

Prawns were chunky and aside from some of the prawn-y flavour, they were devoid of all other taste. Like sweetness. No, there was not salt as well. We expected nothing out of the dried shrimp roe that they added because we knew expectations will not be met. Noodles were okay. XO sauce was okay. Everything was in the grey of okay. Will not be ordering this again as well.

Tsui Wah, curry lamb chops

Curry lamb chops were nice. Those ribs were browned - probably pan fried before they were served in a curry of their concoction. The meat of the lamb wasn't overcooked and were tender. Pretty tasty curry that one. The only thing I thought that could have made it better was the rice. Not a fan of the dry and beady type of rice which wasn't absorbent. But I could come back for this.

Tsui Wah, condensed milk buns

People talk well about their condensed milk buns. This was one of those instances where we agree with the masses. Those loaves were toasted, airy and soaked on the flat surface with butter and condensed milk.

Tsui Wah, almond cream egg white

The almond cream with egg white tasted like the one we had in Wellington Street. Nice.

Tsui Wah, hot lemon coke

We skipped the tea for the hot fizzy Coke with lemon which was just the drink to wash the food down.
