After our wonderful Malaysian trip, we would like to eat a spicy Chinese meal for comparison. I tried to check out several places “private clubs”, most allow only reservation for 8 or 10 or more people. We saw pretty good review of Yu Chuan Club, and they don’t have problem with a 2 diners’ reservation. Here we go!
It was the Mid Autumn Festival in Hong Kong, lots of lovely lanterns in the new renovated street in Wanchai. The new buildings remind me very much of the colourful Chinese building in Penang. In Hong Kong, they took down the authentic old buildings in the past and now replaced by something similar but now only accessible as shopping malls, hotels or restaurants.
The new architecture from the window of the restaurant. A bit too Disneyland feel. I preferred the real old buildings in certain districts in Hong Kong.
Back to food. Spicy and sour cucumber
Sliced pork with mashed garlic sauce with cucumber slices
Braised eel with garlic
Quick-fried pig intestines with chili - Delicious, crispy and well seasoned
Boiled frog in a fiery sauce - Quite good, but we needed to fish for our meat
On the whole, the meal was quite good. For 2 persons, they recommended ordering 5 dishes - for us 2 cold and 3 warm dishes. Certain dishes, the quantity was on the light side. I think I still like San Xi Lou a bit more, the meal was more delicate.
