Lung Wah Hotel
Latitude / Longitude: 22.38183, 114.18829
Inside the Lung Wah Hotel restaurants, brown tiles weave their way through beautiful roman arches. The simple décor creates a spacious, elegant feeling. The emphasis is on the ambience, not the food. If busy, be prepared for it to be on the noisy side. It also has an informal outdoor deck seating area with plastic tablecloths and multi-coloured lawn chairs. They also have live peacocks outside (in a cage).
The fare is classic Cantonese, with dishes such as the traditional Braised Pigeon in Soya Bean Sauce, Baked Seafood Noodles with melted Cheese, and for dessert, Dòufuhuā, (Soft Tofu Dessert) served either in a wooden bucket, or large pot.
The downsides are that the service is rather poor and slow, as the restaurant is chronically under-staffed. Reminiscent of dining in Mainland China, it is fairly far away, and the food is rather bland. This is a bit of a tourist trap, with the menu prices and dishes reflecting this.
Local tip: Don’t use the toilets here, or the valet service (which charges HKD 30 for parking your car under a bridge, where you risk getting a fine from the HK Police).
Hours: Open daily, 11:00-22:30
