    It was a long time ago and dont remember what we ordered , heck I dont remember what I ate yesterday
    I think that's why my wife takes a picture of everything she eats LOL
    Anyway,being used to the "New York style Chinese food", General Tsao's chicken and the like , it was the worst chinese food I ever ate!! I remember thinking "what is this crud they call Chinese food
    I bet in China they never even heard of Fortune cookies

    worst chinese food is in Changsha, twigs drowned in oil and chilli, truly vile but you could choose your own snake to fry if that was your think, best, dunno, clock face chippy in St helens, or there was a good takeaway on monument road near 5 ways in birmingham

    japan is full of unoffensive 3rd grade Chinese food too, as is most of eastern europe (as you learn taking an oriental wife there)

    best Indian, Rusholme in manchester, take your pick, also a very good one called the Sundarbon in Huddersfield

    i lived in brum for 4 years and despite the joy of discovering and testing Baltis all over the city, Manchester was better, controversial i know
    we won it at wemberlee
    we on it in gay paree...

    I have spent about a year in China in and there are general styles reflecting climate ingredients as in Europe etc

    There is the colder North where wheat grows so there are Mantou steambuns and wheat noodles , Manchurian dishes

    Shanghai fan is style around well Shanghai where both wheat and rice are used with vegetables

    Cantonese and Hainan food from the south rice and lots of delicious seafood as used in HK Taiwan Macau and closest to what was used in K tale aways

    Sichuan with its fiery hotpots and chillis

    Of course there also others Mongolian Hotpots, eh muslim lamb dishes from Uruumqi and Kashgar similar to the Turikc influenced stans with flat breads skewers kebabs etc

    Tibet with its Momo rolls is another story

    I like a good 酸甜猪肉 Tangcu Zhurou Sweet sour pork or 蚝油牛肉 Niurhou Beef and Oyster from time to time and the jiiozi real steam buns seemed better than those here. I apolgize in menu kanji incorrect, I will spank the food Panda after me..

    There's a couple of places that do British Chinese food in BKK. Their sweet and sour chicken balls are on point.

    I sat down for a meal in Singapore, a business meeting, and 2 naked ladies entered the room, laid down on the dining table and food was laid across their bodies.

    I had just refused eating still alive lobsters, at a previous dinner appointment, and was totally disgusted with this bullshit.

    Why the Asians like eating still alive creatures or eating off still alive human beings confuses me.

    Was a craze a few years ago of cooling the lobster or fish's head with ice, then boiling or frying it's body, so by the time the body is cooked, the head is at normal temperature again and fully alive, looking up at the Asian girl giggling behind this hands.







    At least you know it's fresh, I suppose.

    Back in the days when Shatin was still a village there used to be a pigeon restaurant beside the main road down from Lion Rock tunnel. They did a dish of minced pigeon that you wrapped in a lettuce leaf. Excellent and so far as I recall the only place that did that dish in HK. A friend told me a few years ago that the restaurant was still there, now lost in urban sprawl and no longer so popular.

    That reminds me of The Greasy Goose, not its actual name but known as that by most expats, in Cheungshawan opposite the San Miguel brewery. They did a first class roast duck with plum sauce. Legend had it that their San Mig was piped directly under the road. That of course was untrue although they had a special deal with the brewery and received their beer fresh daily without some preservative or whatever went into standard San Mig. It was a distinctly superior taste. Another fact or possible legend is that the only other place in HK allowed to have the fresh beer was the Captain's Bar at the Mandarin Hotel.

    Funny how you can forget so many things and still remember exceptional food forty years later.

    If they have to be eaten , I am sure you would agree that being dead would be preferable
    Most live humans are not very cooperative while being eaten , and you should hear their language.

    The Shatin Inn? Not sure if that's the one you mean, but that was still going strong when I was there. Great place, although it was useful to have a car.

    Sang choy bow. Yeh, nice- not too hard to find actually.

    I had to think about this and do some research too, I really cannot remember the name. I think, most probably, not too far from the Shatin Inn it would have been the Lung Wah Hotel (沙田龙华酒店).

    The Shatin Inn used to be very popular with film stars and other media celebs. Great view from there too. Went there many a time- you often had to wait for a table on weekends, but weeknights it was fairly quiet. A bit of a slice of HK history there (it long predates he 'New Towns' and extensive tunnel system, and I believe is still going strong albeit not as trendy as it once was.
