Heard that Dong Lai Shun has opened a new branch at Soundwill Plaza II, Causeway Bay and it is located on high floor. Thinking about having a nice dinner with beautiful view of the night, how can I miss it? So glad to come with a group of friends before CNY and try some festive dishes.
The 8-dishes appetizer, which included Crystal Lamb, sliced Geoduck with sesame oil, sliced lamb with chilli oil, Green tea smoked eggs, razor with Sichuan sauce, cool chicken with rice wine, bamboo shoots salad and veggie bean curd rolls. The sliced geoduck with sesame oil was my favorite, since it was so tasty with the fragrant sesame oil and has a slightly crunchy texture. Razor with Sichuan sauce was quite spicy but the sweetness of the razor was well preserved. Cool chicken with rice wine was worth to try as well, since the chicken was smooth and the rice wine smelled so tempting.
The soup, which contains the rich flavour of nice dried seafood, such as sea cucumber, fish maw, and egg dumplings, has a very tradition name about good fortune and wealth for the family. It was an excellent soup without a single drop of oil.
With a flower-shaped presentation, “Blossoming” was the most festive dish of the night. It was actually stir-fried golden shrimp with dual mussels. Golden shrimp with salted egg was very delicious, salty and
In a reunion dinner before CNY, so lucky to have Chef Chan to show off his nice skill and cook the stir-fried Alaska crab legs with cereal and garlic. Chef Chan demonstrated the procedures, stri-frying and saying some lucky auspicious sentences to us. 🙂 The crab meat was so juicy and sweet.
After a few dishes with strong taste, 2 dishes with mushroom were followed to recover the taste. Roasted chicken with mushroom fillings was one of my favourite of the night, as the mushrooms absorbed the juice of the chicken. Even without meat in the chicken, the mushrooms still gave us a fresh and meaty feeling.
If you visit Dong Lai Shun, you would never miss their lamb dishes. Braised lamb chops with Lianshi sauce was booked to the level that bone and meat separated. It was so loose but the meat and the vegetables on the side have absorbed the best of the sauce.
We all were so looking forward to the handmade noodles with lamb. Lamb was so rich while it was perfect to pair with the noodles with light soup. Felt not enough to only have one bowl of noodles.
The night finished with a spectacular selection of dessert, including deep-fried sliced turnip, lychee pudding, molten egg fried dumplings, steamed pea and bean rolls with bean paste stuffing. Everyone has its characteristics but the softness of the steamed pea and bean roll and the sweetness and crispiness of the fried dumplings made them them the best two.
Dong Lai Shun is always the restaurant that is worth to return with its good standard.

。Kwan Kee — The most classic local beef balls & pork knuckles。 來到粉嶺聯和墟覓食，總是會想起三家餐廳，群記牛肉圓豬手便是其中一家。小時候家父常帶我們來食，以前在周末下午總是摸門釘，假日不開市，而且豬手一賣光便收舖，這是從前的群記。現在第一輪豬手賣完，等兩小時便再有新鮮出爐。又多了一個到訪的理由。 In Luen Wo Hui, there are 3 restaurants that […]
。Casa Lisboa – 美酒美食配。 Casa Lisboa 是西班牙菜餐廳Ole的姐妹餐廳，一直以優質葡萄牙菜見稱。之前已來食過幾次，更在此參加過一次飯局，但葡萄酒配對晚餐也是第一次。而Bacalhoa首席釀酒師和地區經理也親臨現場介紹其酒莊的酒和背景，場面生色不少。是次晚餐有一個度身訂造的菜單，包括5道菜和5杯配對餐酒。 Casa Lisboa, as the sister restaurant of Ole, provides high quality of Portuguese cuisine. I […]
。Table – 初嚐淨化海鮮。 在網上看到柏廷坊的Table – 淨化海鮮有生蠔之夜，這夜便來了一試。第一次品嚐淨化海鮮，原來歐洲已運用這技術一段時間，由外國運來的海鮮會先存放於自家工場，用約七十二小時淨化，讓海鮮排出體肉廢物，回復新鮮。餐廳的菜式是以食材為基調，沒有特定食材的來源地，而這夜，我便食到了來自南北半球的新鮮生蠔。 Heard about the Oyster Night at Table – Ingredient-based Cuisine located at the Pemberton and ready […]
