Hong Kong Eats: Lei Garden

As an old family favorite, a visit to Hong Kong will never be complete without dining in Lei Garden.  Years and years of eating there taught me that it's best to go there on off peak hours as the restaurant is almost always full no matter what time (Saturdays and Sundays?  Forget it.).  So Hubby and I got there at 11am on a weekday and was able to secure a table right away (yay!).    

Fried pastry with radish filling.  This will always be never-miss.  Crunchy pastry and creamy radish with radish slivers inside.  I could eat 10 of this and still not get enough.


Beef ball

Steamed shrimp dumpling

Stir fried noodles

Plain rice roll

Chicken feet with abalone sauce.  This. Is. The. Bomb.  I've tried countless chicken feet in a number of countries and I simply must say that no one does it better than Lei Garden's version.  Soft melt-in-your-mouth chicken feet cooked in rich abalone sauce.  Bonus points:  after devouring all the chicken feet you can put the sauce in plain rice and you're good to go!

Lei Garden never disappoints.  I'll give them a 5 out of 5 stars.  Service was superb too.  The lady who attended to us kept on checking up on us.  Dirty plates were replaced immediately and tea was refilled promptly.

Lei Garden is at City Garden, Block 9North PointHong Kong (across City Garden Hotel).  They also have branches in Central, Causeway Bay and Wan Chai.
