|Must be the best 'Char Siu' in town!|
Their signature dish is the King's BBQ Pork (Char Siu $38), absolutely THE BEST. It's moist, a little crispy on the outside, with just the right (small amount) of fat to make it tasty. I don't know what the secret ingredient is but the BBQ chef at this restaurant has added one more flavor to the usual recipe here and it works like magic.
|Crispy Roasted Pork|
Their bi-lingual order card contain a 'thumbs-up' icon that denotes their Signature Dish. Here is one of them, the Crispy Roasted Pork ($48). I want to meet the BBQ chef because this guy knows what he's doing. Selecting the right ingredient is half the battle and he selects pork which is not too fatty and roasts it until the skin is crisp but the meat is tender. Another excellent dish but the Char Siu is slightly better although it didn't get the Signature Dish icon.
|Fukien Fried Rice|
|Shrimp with Spinach Dumpling|
|Mixed Vegetables Dumpling|
The dumplings were a treat, especially the Shrimp Dumpling with Spinach and the Mixed Vegetable Dumpling. We also tried the Steamed Rice Roll with King Prawn (very firm prawns) and the Steamed Rice Roll with BBQ Pork, the BBQ Pork Buns and the Sweet Potato Buns (made with Purple Yams, actually) they were very nice, not outstanding but entirely adequate.

|Congee with Chicken and Mushrooms|
Another outstanding dish was the Congee with Chicken and Mushroom. I was most pleasantly surprised to find that the congee was the tastiest I have had in years! Sprinkled with Goji berries on top and served with fried wonton skins, the flavor was excellent. Again I could taste the 火气 (transl. Fire air). Chinese people believe that Goji berries are especially healthy for women (replenishes the blood) and congee is breakfast/lunch and comfort food.
The meal came to under $80 per person because, like most restaurants in Hong Kong now, if you pay for the bill before 12:30, they offer a discount. They work hard at this place, opening daily at 7 am for dim sum breakfast until late night.
